Awesome benchin' Tone. How you getting on since stopping the 531 element?
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
looking super strong Tone,,looking forward to seeing u oct 17th,,GOD BLESS
But if I say, "I will not mention him or speak any more in his name," his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.

John, thanks man. It's an honor everytime you come check out my log. I will definitely need your support in October. My training partners all have weddings and other important dates so I'll be coming up with just me and Mike "Get Nasty" Romeo. It'll be great to see you and the crew!
9.29.09 Lower Accessory Day
Inzer Preds and Single Ply Hardcore (Trying to just get some reps in the suit but couldn't get down at all)
Speed Pulls off 4 matts
Romanian Deadlifts (Wide Grip)
So lets see what the workout looked like today, Im about to go hit it in 2hrs or so.
Not sure u saw my other post, cause its on the previous page, but I do think 5/3/1 would be good for me. Until I hop into gear, I dont see any other routine giving me better results. I'd still really like to lift with you guys whenever possible.
What is a "Hardcore Only"?
I'm weak now, but not for long

Really kind of coasting till the meet on the 17th. Did enough to work but not enough to hinder my recovery. I want to pull big numbers.

Sebasitan's are like front raises but harder. Take the bar off the rack. Hold it so the bar is on your belly button. Swing the bar up till it's even with your eyes. Then let it fall but only back to your belly button, no lower. I used to have a video of them up on YouTube but I think i took it down awhile ago. I'll have to see if I can get you video. These things will DESTROY your shoulders so if you do these you won't need to do a whole lot more front delt. Just hit rears and you're done.
I think he might show them on of the Underground Strength DVDs.. I feel like I've seen them before haha
Nice work Tone; tear it up at the Asylum!
I'm weak now, but not for long
10.7.09 Upper Accessory
Taking it a little bit easy for the next 2 weeks but need to get at least some work in.
275x1 (Almost passed out on this one. Really lost alot on these since coming off 531.)
Sebastians (Here's the link for those wondering how to do them)
Wide Grip Pushdowns
What's the weight at Tone? Going to have to diet to make superfats?
Today I'm about 372. I am monitoring it. Since I'm only deadlifting at this meet I have to watch where the weight is at so I don't get stuck trying to get down. Pre-bloat I was hovering in the lower 360's.
your jacked dude lol
2000 or bust
372? Light weight. Freakin' nice work big guy.
