    9/26 dl

    This got ugly really quick:

    Conventional against Green Bands
    135x5
    225x5(sumo)
    315x5
    *Add Bands*
    315x1x4. Ughhh

    Pullthrus
    2 Green Bands x15x3

    Seated Cable Rows- CG
    220x15
    220x4
    STOPPED HERE

    Well,something was definitely wrong today. I wanted to start at 315+ bands, but that felt way heavy. My whole back is fried. The seated rows, I got to rep 4 on my second set and my back said no mas. Energy is really zapped, so next week will be a deload.

    Winding down on the deload. Everyting is feeling good though. Ive been contemplating on dropping some lbs and going down a class also. Id like to get a walk around weight of 190 and compete 181s. I dont know, just a thought. I decided to wait till the beginning of the year to compete, so I have plenty of time to do it right. Set some IPA records too. Theyre pretty weak. Im concerned with my bench lately since I lost my training partner awhile back, I havent been able to do any real heavy overload and board workwhich has been really showing. I really cant wait to hook up with Tone and his crew. Gotta get that **** in order. I want 530 by years end.

    10/5 Bench

    5 minute walk on treadmill

    Bench(football under back)
    Bar x10
    95x10
    135x10
    185x8
    (took out ball)
    225x5
    275x5
    315x3
    335x1
    *2 brd*
    355x2
    365x1x2

    Floor Presses(Pinkies on Ring)
    225x10
    275x8
    295x4(missed 5)

    H.S. CSR (1 arm)
    3 PPS x10
    5 PPS x10
    6 PPS x6
    6 PPS x8

    GreenBand Pushdowns(held at top of head)
    1 set of 15
    2 sets of 12

    OK. Strength is way down on the bench. Ive really been neglecting it lately without a partner. No real heavy weights, so I guess its understandable why. 365 off a 2 brd was a liitle tough unracking since the rack at the gym is sh it and the J hooks are too high, so I didnt go any higher for fear of injury. I will hopefully start with Tone and his crew next Monday which will definately help turn things around, so im not really sweating it. Floor presses were very weak too. I dont know, but all I want to do is Squat though. Is that so wrong?? Oh well. Another thing is that ive been off all supplements too for about a month, so that can have some effects too. Just a cleansing of the system/broke azz mofo thing. Anyway, nothing but up from here. Hers a vid of the 335 and 355, 365 2brd. You can see it was a bit ch to take out of the J's:

    The effort is there man, those hooks are killin ya. I see you have to re-adjust yourself once you unrack that weight, that sucks.

    Next Monday we'll both head to lift with Tone, it's so much better man, you'll see.

    Keep up the hard work, it'll come.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

    Nothing wrong with your numbers at all. We need to fix a few things with your bench setup but you'll be making very good progress. You have alot of strength you're not using. Hopefully you'll enjoy training with us on Monday. See you then.

    I have lots to learn about how to bench properly....To me that looked great, but the others are saying that your form could use work. Nice lifts nonetheless!

    On the way down he's great. A handoff would help ALOT but other than the difficulties he runs into having to take the bar out himself he's actually great on the way down. It's at the very bottom and the way up he's got issues. Watch his toes. His feel come up and he's on his toes. He's got no drive from the legs to push with. If he fixes that he'll see a increase in his bench.

    10/7 Squat

    warmup
    single green band pullthroughs
    3 sets of 15

    HighBox Squats(17" straddling a bench)
    135x5
    225x5
    315x5
    *add loose briefs/belt
    365x5
    405x5
    455x2
    495x1
    495x1

    Close Stance GMs
    225x8x3

    Decline Abs( 25lb plae at forehead)
    3 sets of 12

    Felt really well today. I am still just working on form and stuff and really didnt kill myself today. 495 went up pretty easy. It seems that im leaning back alot more and breaking at the hips too, so im happy with progress. Will see how it translates over to free squats. Hopefully in the near future I can afford to finally buy a decent suit. Money is really tight, so i want to find something I can SQ/DL in.

    10/9 dl

    A little close to Squat day, but im going to be pretty busy this weekend and want to make sure I get something in.

    Warmup
    5 minute walk on treadmill
    greenband pullthrus 3 sets of 12
    Close Stance Squats
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3

    Sumo DL
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3
    *add belt*
    315x6
    *add loose briefs*
    365x6
    405x1
    455x1

    Ham Curls
    3 sets of 12

    Very short session. Felt very weak in the Hams/Hips once I got going. Couldnt get the weight moving. I guess its just too close to squat day and not enough recovery. im really going to have to space them out during the week. im no spring chicken in ths game, so I got to make sure im recovering properly. Also make sure I get enough clean calories in me too(ive been low on the caloric intake lately). Cant wait till Monday though. First training session with Tone and his crew.
