    Eddie's Log

    Some background about me - I'm 17, 149-150lbs, and I compete in powerlifting (raw). My last meet was 12/5/09 and I went 320 - 205 - 300 = 825. I've been training seriously since about mid-February 2009. I currently train by myself (usually) in my house and I am using Wendler's 5/3/1.

    New Goal:
    Total 920 raw at APA meet in Edison, NJ on 2/27/10 at ~155 (maybe cutting to 148 to set some records...we'll see).

    Here is the set-up im using:

    5/3/1 MP
    Floor Press 3x8
    Selkow’s Pull-ups
    Face-Pulls 2x15-20
    Hammer Curl 2x6-10
    ER/IR

    5/3/1 Deadlift
    Deadlift + doubled purple under feet 6x2
    Olympic Squats 2x10
    Ab Wheel 3 sets

    5/3/1 Bench
    Bench + doubled Minis 6x2
    Selkow’s Rowing
    CG 3-Board 2x10
    ER/IR

    5/3/1 Squat
    Squats + purple 6x2
    Good Morning (Squat Stance) 2x10
    Decline Sit-up 3x10

    I'll be using the same tension for all the speed sets to gauge recovery since this is the first time Im using bands. Not really sure how this is going to go; either really well or really ****ty. Also, I am asking Harry Selkow on elitefts how to go about the pull-ups/rowing movements.

    My diet is a lot of protein (~300g a day) w/ ~225-250 carbs on training days and about 70-80g less on non-workout days. I do 30 min of walking on off days for recovery and to stay lean. 3200 cals on training days and 3000 on off days.

    Thanks for the great site.

    Sup Eddie, I was competing at that meet in Edison with you too. You tore it up big guy, I saw you put your cell # up in Vizzy's journal, one of us will definitely hit you up over break for some good lifting sessions.

    Here are my meet vids. If anyone notices and technical problems or things to specifically work on, please dont hesitate.

    320 Squat - http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60...t=320Squat.flv
    205 Bench - http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60...t=205Bench.flv
    300 Deadlift - http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60...00Deadlift.flv

    Here's todays workout.

    5 Week

    Deadlift
    135x10
    180x5
    210x5
    240x11 --> PR

    Speed Deads
    6 sets of 2
    135 + doubled mini's under feet and looped through belt

    ATG High Bar Squats (Shoulder Width)
    115x8
    145x6
    170x10

    Took forever since I kept debating on what bands to use and hour to loop them. I get mini and light short bands for christmas, so Ill use those for deads. They felt very quick though, Im not sure if Im using enough weight.

    Lookin good man, dont go TOO crazy with the bands. Incorporate them every other week, or something you feel you can handle. Bands on the bench are really strenuous, and can lead to overtraining before ya know it. Keep up the hard work.

    Thanks for the advice. Ill use them for the first 2 week of a cycle then drop them in the last week when Ill be handling heavier weight for the 5/3/1 movement. Hopefully they work well.

    My short mini and light bands came today. Ill have to test them out next cycle

    Nice session. I wouldn't mind getting some bands some day. They seem very useful.

    Eddie, sorry for the delay on calling you. I haven't forgotten about you Sir Rage, I'll be calling as soon as I can. I have my daughter this weekend and I'm on call at work so things are busy.

    80x3

    Minix22

    Hammer Curl

    I talked to Tone tonight and we figured out what Im doing. From now on Ill use bands on my 5 week and deload as speed work (~6 sets of 2). 3 week and 1 one ill just do accessories with straight weight. (Should speed squats be done to a box like in westside? It felt awkward as hell doing them without a box this week)

    What do you guys think of doing a meet feb 20? I want to just run the 5/3/1 for a few cycles and get stronger without interrupting ****, but Im not sure when there will be another meet near me.

    3 Week

    Deadlift
    135x8
    165x4
    195x3
    225x3
    250x10 --> Ive gotten 250x10 before but the form felt a lot better on this one. http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60...0.flv&newest=1

    Deficit Deads off 3in Platform (I went light on these since I wasnt sure how much to use)
    135x6
    185x6
    185x6
    185x6

    Banded GM (DL stance)
    Purple+2Minix15
    2Purple+2Minix15 --> This is a good tension for me now I think. I have a dumbass red line on my next from them though. Ill have to figure out something there lol.

    Hanging Leg Raise
    3 sets of 10

    Im feeling good and stronger.

    EDIT: I just realized that the WNPF moved a meet for March 28, which is like the perfect time for when I wanted to do a meet again. It gives me almost 3 full months from today to get stronger and bigger.

    3 week

    Bench
    Barx12
    75x8
    105x8
    135x3
    155x3
    175x7 http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60...1225091215.flv I got the form down better. I was focusing on the advice you gave me at the meet tone (squeeze the bench) and push the bar back. It allowed me to arch more and made locking the bar out easier, which is my sticking point.

    CG Bench (index on edge of knurling)
    115x8
    155x7
    155x6

    Rolling Thunders
    25x10
    25x12 --> Here is the vid. Am I doing them right? http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60...1225091241.flv

    Inverted Row
    15lbs on chest, 3 sets of 8. Selkow told me to do 10 but I was trying to get the workout done quick because I have family coming over and I wasnt thinking. So I did the next exercise for 10.

    Seated V-Grip Row
    9 platesx10
    9x10
    9x10

    Cable ER/IR
    2 sets 12/14

    I got a sled and pair of short minis and lights from elitefts for christmas. Cant wait to start using them.

    You had at least 3 or 4 more on the bench. I wish you had partners around to push you!
    The rolling thunders were good but you need to reach them over your head almost like a pull over. Reach them way back and then throw them up from there.
    Not bad Unbridaled Rage! Keep up the good stuff!
