    I'm 26 years old, we have a meet in mind but it's not until late Feburary. I need more upper back work, so I started to do more back stuff on my accessory day. I was gonna stop at the facepulls, but I haven't done chuck v rows in awhile. I'm also trying to add in some rehab exercises that might help my pec injury, that's why I do the pec-dec. I probably should cut back on some of my volume work.

    I sent this photo to a good friend of mine Jo Jordan, who is an EFS sponsored athlete. I figured he would get a laugh about it, and I guess he did because he posted the picture in his log. So I said what the hell, I'll do the same. I hope you guys get a kick out of it. I just posted a link to his log instead of just posting the picture.

    Thanks Tim!!!!

    I knew you meant no harm. I get questioned alot about the volume, your training partner Tone had made a few comments about it. I'm probably going to rethink it all, and cut some stuff out.

    Thanks Brian!!! I have been training for 12 years, 4 of those 12 years I was powerlifting. I took about 7 years off of powerlifting and I started training for it just over 1 year now.

    Your speed out of the hole on your squats is incredible. Do you do a lot of band work?

    Thanks Ambre!!! Yes, we do 3 week waves with bands off a box for speed. This training cycle we are adding more bands and less bar weight. I love squatting against bands, because you have to be explosive. But we dont wear our heavy gear when we do speed work, we wear single-ply gear either a pair of briefs or suit with the straps down. Lately we have been using our single-ply centurion from Titan, because their 1ply briefs have a very thin seam on the legs and it rolls over and pinchs pretty bad.

    That guy announcing in your video was amazing. He sounded really strong. haha

    Good work on the board press work. Any reason you guys choose to use the fat bar over a regular bar for this?

    Yeah, he did ok I guess!!!! Hahaha

    We use the fat bar for alot of our benching. I guess since we used a close grip and not a comp grip, we used the fat bar over a regular bar. I can't use my comp grip on a fat bar, it kills my wrist. Using a close grip with a shirt on is pretty tough.

    FRIDAY
    DE-Lower

    Speed Squats with the buffalo bar
    Added one set of blue bands on the bar and put on my single ply suit with straps down
    BAR-2x5
    145-2x3
    255-1x3
    Added 2nd pair of blue bands and looped it over a plate...WOW!!!
    255-3x3
    305-3x3
    325-3x3

    The band tension was probably between 350-400lbs at the top. So for my last set of triples it was between 675-725lbs at the top. This week we squatted off a 13" box which is pretty low for us.

    Speed Pulls off a 2" plate
    225-1x1
    315-1x1
    405-5x1
    From the floor
    405-3x1

    It felt a little different doing speed pulls of a 2" plate. But we think this might help me out with my deadlift. We need to figure out how to keep me off my toes.
