    Persicutor's Powerlifting Journal

    Hey so this is my first time starting an online training journal but I have been keeping track of my progress ever since I started powerlifting last summer. When I first started I had never done squats or deadlifts and I did half reps on bench with the bar over my neck (which led to rotator cuff problems). Anyways once I got the proper form down for the 3 lifts I started recording my progress:

    Summer 2008:

    Squat - 165 lbs
    Deadlift - 275 lbs
    Bench - 175 lbs

    Now, around 9 months later my lifts shot up and keep getting better (see sig). When I plateaued on 275 squat, I switched from olympic style to wider stance low bar.

    Thanks for reading!

    Deadlift Day:

    I decided to rotate from deads to rackpulls. I think I'm coming down with a slight cold so i kept it fairly light today.

    Rackpulls (bar just below the knee):
    135x5
    225x3
    315x3
    405x2
    495x3

    Dumbbell Rows:
    70x10
    80x8 (x2)
    50x20

    Had to leave early for work.

    Squats again today. Didn't have tons of energy but wasn't tired either so didn't go for max.

    Squats:

    135x5
    185x3
    225x2
    275x1
    315x3 (PR but third rep was sketchy)

    Used a belt for my last set of squats and it felt solid unracking the weight but I wasn't used to it on the way down, I have to practice some more with it.

    Dumbbell OH Press:

    50x8
    75x3 (harder than usual)
    55x12
    55x7

    Pushdowns:

    60x15
    60x12 (x3)
    Stats:
    Bench: 220
    Squat: 350

    Haha I know eh. I think at one point I had more sick days than bench days in this journal haha. Anyways I felt so weak on bench I need to get back into it. My first 175 set felt like a ton b/c I forgot about leg drive but the other 3 were easy so I'll add some more weight next week. Shoulders didn't sound too bad today either.

    I think I'll make a trip to the Y in a few weeks once i get my set of green bands to do reverse band deadlift. The school gym doesn't have a power rack to hook up the bands so I can't do them there. Plus I can try to get my bench form down too.

    Bench:

    135x5
    165x3
    195x3
    195x2
    185x4

    Thought I would do better on this but probably still recovering from the weekend binge drinking.

    DB Rows:

    90x10
    90x10
    90x8

    CG Bench:

    155x7

    Tri-Pushdown:

    85x10
    85x8

    At the end of the last set, felt my lower abs bulge out as if something burst inside. Very painful. Had to sit for a bit until the pain stopped and then i decided not to do another set just in case. Did some close grip pushups when I got home.

    Yea I have a feeling it might be a hernia. I think I might get it checked out. Did you have the same symptoms as me when yours happened?

    I wasn't lifting weights, i was moving floating dock with friends. I remember feelign like i hurt something, then i had some minor swelling and pain for a few weeks. It went down and i forgot about it.

    Doctor found it over a year ago now and said i need surgery. I don't feel it at all anymore so **** it.
