    Thank you Cocoa.
    Yeah Hopp thank you **** was bad there for me for a little while, but thanks to many different factors, including good training partners, and best friend(Tone) to help pick me up and having patence with me . I'm back to training and thinking I may be able to pull a 220 meet or 2 out of my ass.
    Thank you Brian C for your kind words. I totally was there with family stuff also. Tough to keep everything in check.
    Finally Tone you motivate and keep me inspired and pushing forward all the time. It has been my honor to have met you and watch you change in many ways also.

    Good night for you man. Definitely need to adapt to the new (lower) weight but your strength is still there. You're gonna do some sick sh1t at 220 man. Thanks for all the help tonight. Benching is easy when I don't have to worry about anything else.

    Nice work on the sumo SLDL, I tried those before and I really liked them. Next time I do SLDL, I might go ahead and do those instead to change things up.

    I haven't really started getting into the cardio too much yet Hopp. Just trying to watch what i"m eating and not consuming so much food is helping. Trying to spend more time with my wife and son, however it may be time to throw in a couple morning cardio sessions a week. Diet can only do so much. Plus need to throw in some Tabatas they are tough as hell.

    I'm pretty much doing the same thing, and I'm also thinking about adding in some cardio. What is Tabatas? I have seen alot of lifters doing it.

    We took these from Vin D. My understanding is u pick any exercise at the end of your workout(eg on squat day db thrusts or front squats) chose a weight that is very light for you. You do reps for 20 seconds, rest for 10 secs(this is considered a round) doing this for 8 rounds or toal of 4 mins. It is supposed to target fat loss without muscle loss.
    It is extremely taxing though, think Vin does it with 2 to 4 different exercises. This will definetly get your cardio endurance up! Hope I explained this right, but if still unsure I would just hit Vin up and he would probably explain it better

    I'm right there with you Tim. My shoulder is acting up, I think it has to do with the weather. Try upping the healthy fats. Buy yourself a bottle of flaxseed oil and take a couple tablespoons in the morning and night. See you tonight bud.

    conv. pull
    135x5
    225x3
    315x3
    405x1
    495x1
    585x1(harder than should have been)
    put single ply suit on

    635x0 tried again this time right above knee and crapped out.

    sldl
    275x12x2sets
    275x8x2sets add green bands around feet and neck. focused on firing hips thru at top.

    shoulder rehab at home 3 rds.

    really need to focus on lockout strength. Also missing alot of belly is going to change form a little.

    Tim you haven't had any heavy weight on your back in awhile. Once you take 700-800+ a few times it'll feel like nothing again. Gotta get that CNS adjusted. I can't imagine taking out 700+ right now, I'd have the shakes for 2 days.

    Hello nothing really to report about training. Just another lack-luster week of training. Strength is still missing, my weight is 238 today so that has to be worked on.
    low lights
    monday bench- 635 for 2sets of singles
    wednesday-conv pulls against bands, then straight weight off of 4in blocks for doubles(455 last set)
    sat- squat training-worked up to 755(yahoo) for 3sets of singles.:

    Ok, here's my thought wanted to do Ipa world's meet end of june, however don't think financially this is going to work. So there is a meet 10 mins from my house ( still IPA)on may 15th. All though don't think I'll put up great numbers, this would be a good time to take a shot at making 220 class, without putting out alot of cash out. So may go against the advice of training partners, and just let it fly, and leave my broken ego at home.

    Tim, just do what you think is best for you. My situation is sort of the same. I am REALLY wanting to go compete at the APF Senior Nationals in Chicago, but financially I can't do it and it pisses me off. The level of competition that is going to be there is crazy. Are you lacking any drive and motivation now that you are at a lighter weight?
