simply as the title states...here's my recent sessions...
ME BENCH & ME SQUAT
**nuthin to say about bench day...it was was !@#$. couldn't touch weight in this bastard of a shirt. will try again next week. movin on..
135x3 225x3 315x1 405x1 495x1
w/briefs and hardcore suit w/o knee wraps
***!@#$in felt awesome to move some real weight like its my bitch. 800 felt lite and without knee wraps too. i usually go without knee wraps until i'm close to a meet cause i know i will bury depth with them. i go about 2 inches above parallel but these were reps. no worries there. on a side note, my partners(both 242s) were !@#$in comparing their backs and traps last nite. this !@#$ was funny to see. on has traps and the other has shoulders. so you can easily see who won out on this one. though there was said flexing going on but hard to see on camera. nice competitive spirt these two have and nice to have at a barbell club. would be nice for me to go head to head with another super in training....but !@#$ is what it is...

***tonite i just had to get some weight in my !@#$in hands cause with all the benchin issues as of late, i was about to go insane. did some reverse bands and worked up to a PR of 765 for 3(at the bottom was 565). the weight didn't feel heavy to my surprise. maybe it was the pslin, powerfull, and perfect carb i was on before i lifted. then a !@#$in hairy human being that called himself a lifter came up to me and told me i was using too much weight on the bar and can't do that. i think i was about to snap his ass in two. no !@#$in wonder people in this city have low !@#$in standards and prefer to be normal. my god! sorry. well i had to back the weight down for a set of 675 for 5 and then took off the lights and used just the minis and did 405 for 12, 500 for 5 and 500 for 3. somewhere in there i kindly asked a skinny douchebag to help me hold the bar in place. i might as well be speakin a different !@#$in language cause he didn't understand and he said he was with a "client". i so wanted to break his ass as well! anyways, i did some ICG presses which is a combination of jm press/close-grip bench. this was awesome. not many movements can pre-exhaust my strong-ass triceps. awesome !@#$. moved onto dips and pushdowns and shoulders and was done. did 120s for 2 sets of 5. i think i might have scared a few people when i did those. oh well, tommorrow is dead day...oh and i almost forgot...when i did the 765 i was goin for the 4th rep when the plates fell off. awesome !@#$!
terrorizing the gym...
ME BENCH/ME SQUAT
***me bench was yet another crap session. still waitin on the phenom but changing shirts since i can't get any support from this shirt i'm using at the most crucial part of the lift. nuthin else to report.
135x5 225x3 315x3 405x3 495x1
605x1 695x1 745x1 745x1 745x1
***tonite its obvious that by modifying my squat stance weeks ago, its now made my squats a ton stronger. i've never worked up to 495 raw and 745 for 3 singles was no prob. all were below parallel which was the goal.
onward to bench accy day,

500x3 405x10/4/3/3(all with 30 sec rest in between)
250x10/4/3/3 then did dips for 2 sets of 10
***tonite i felt really good. would of gotten more with 500 raw but didn't really expect 3 reps so i shocked myself. then dropped down to 405 for 20 total reps(see above). finished up with pec deck and dips. did some front laterals since my shoulders were already pre-exhausted from benchin and did some ICG presses again. those things work your tris a damn good bit! it was awesome! finished up with some abs and was done. friday is me dead day...
500 for 3 was ****in easy!

Yo big guy what's an ICG press? Not sure I understand what you mean by a JM press and a close grip.

***got up early this morning to hit a session with some old school powerlifters. the session was definitely old school for sure. hammering out back with 4 movements which i haven't done in a while and then did rack deads and hit 880 for 3 easy. finished up with some hammers, legs, and abs and i was done. best damn session i had in a while. last nite i was really motivated by a fellow super, seth coker. he was really enthusiastic about powerlifting which got me talkin a good bit and then this morning got to talkin with another powerlifter who has done the sport longer than i have and still love it. goes to show ya, we are a different breed from the rest...the gym i trained at was defintely hardcore for gym. it was the only one i hadn't gone to. reason being was they don't do guest passes or fees. WHAT?!? yea i said the same. i would love to train there but the membership is about $50 a month....but i do like the look of old equipment and nuthin but plates and bars around. they even had a old school squat rack for squats and push presses. badass..i love it. i hope i can go back there soon.
That old school gym sounds awesome...cannot give enough props on that pull day effort dude.
135x10 225x6 315x3
CG shirted bench(single ply katana)
495x1 605x3 675x1 700x1
***last nite was a good session for once. i went into my old katana and did some close-grip benchin in my shirt. 605 for 3 was easy and 675 wasn't a problem. went 700 for singles on both 3board and 2board. both was easy. need to lower the bar faster. jon had an off nite but needs to rest and matt worked up to 705 close-grip in his rage x. first time he has had weight in his hands for a while but still good.
back to some normalcy on the bench,
i also did some grip work too...
2000 or bust
