    Squats, biceps

    I've decided to stay with box squats until I work with Coach Bryan and he has a chance to fix my squat form. With box squats I can stay tight and don't go too deep. It felt good today. I was a little sore from my lower back to my knees from really focusing on leg drive yesterday during ME bench. So I didn't go too heavy today.

    Box Squat:
    Bar - 3x10
    135 - 3x5
    205 - 3x3
    255 - 3x2
    135 - 1x18

    Biceps:
    DB curls - 3x10
    One arm cable curls - 3x10
    Hammer curls - 3x10

    DONE

    OHP/delts

    Had an amazing day in the gym/garage today. My puppy even laid on the floor and watched today! Got a PR on OHP and felt like I had 5-10 more lbs in the tank. But I still had the rest of my Delt session to do. So I left the next PR for a couple weeks! Actually had to cut it short today because the pump was so sick that I was losing ROM! lol

    OHP:
    Bar - 3x10
    95x5
    115x4
    135x3
    155x2
    170x1
    190x1*
    115x12

    *5 lb PR. Last one was 185 at a bw of 270. So I'll take 190 at a bw of 220-225!

    Delts/Abs giant set:
    1. Rope crunch x Fail
    2. Face pulls x 10
    3. Seated front DB raise x 8
    4. DB laterals x 10
    1-4 repeated five times with no rest except 30 sec rest between giant sets.

    DONE

    Deathlift

    Decided to hit up some heavy deads today even though I just did a ME two weeks ago. Because next week I gotta swap my DL and squat day since I'm working on my squat with Coach on Friday. So I pulled heavy and called it a day. Didn't do my usual other back work (PDs, rows, etc) since I'll be doing that Tuesday. But once again got another PR! AND I'm down another 5-10 lbs in weight since my last PR! I like this, lose 5-10 lbs and lift 5-10 lbs more every 2 weeks. A muthafucka could get use to this shit! Lol. Not bad for lifting on an empty stomach with this intermittent fasting.

    Deathliftt:
    135 - 3x3
    225 - 3x1
    275 x 1
    305 x 1 chalk
    325 x 1 alt grip *(PR)

    DONE

    PWO:

    R&R

    Taking a few days off from training this week. Decided I wanted to have a full three days of recovery before squat training on Friday. I also took a break from my CBL diet for three days as week so I can carb up before Friday. Always best to be at full potential when I get to work with a strength coach.

    FML

    I just got done working with my strength coach. Not good. He came down to my place and we worked in my gym/garage. He basically let me know (which I already knew) that my squat sucks and with all my injuries I should just focus on bench and deadlift. Fucking yay. I guess I can kiss my short term and long term goals goodbye after all. There won't be a 1,000 lb total before Nov. No 1,200 lb total by March. No Elite total by the time I'm 40. Time to reconfigure and decide where my training is going to go from here.

    thats a pretty negative outlook on things bruiser, Id never ever say just focus on two lifts, its not worth squatting. Sounds ridiculous if you ask me for somebody to even tell you that. How serious are the injuries?

    Im not discrediting your strength coach but thats a pretty outrageous statement unless squatting is going to put you in a wheelchair by the time you are 40 or something. You've been squatting upto now so it cant be that bad surely?

    dont be too down anyway regardless! hold that head up high and chase those goals.

    He wasn't wrong about the fact that I shouldn't be squatting though. I had a botched back surgery five years ago. They went in to fix one disk but dragged the scalpel across and damaged two others while in there. They never said anything and it took them 6 months to get me into PT. By that time I had so much scar tissue built up that it caused nerve damage as well. I ended up in a wheel chair for a while, and wilted away to 130 lbs (from 245). I've strengthened my back and core a ridiculus amount since then, even deathlifting over 300 now, which I never thought I'd do. But when I put the weight on my shoulders it just crushes my spine. On top of that I've got an epigastric hernia that likes to pop out once a week, and I spent 5 weeks in the hospital with pancreatitis and ulcerative colitis this year and almost died from it. I'm still dealing with the both the pancreatitis and colitis and get painful flareups. So although the idea of not squatting heavy sickens me, I know deep down that it's probably the smart thing. But hell, if I have to I'll just do box squats and squat 135 for sets of 20! lol. I'll mainly use that to build my DL now.

    thats some serious shit brusier! I prefer the end of that sentiment to that post above though! staying positive and find a way to train around it, not through it! Hell, if you have to squat like that all through training and only squat heavy once a month or even just at a meet its better than nothing!

    ME Bench, triceps, abs

    Never heard back from Lilly about starting the Cube Method, so I just went ahead and hit ME Bench today. Was damn happy with the results, considering I tweaked my neck over the weekend and I'm tight from my left ear down my trap and into my shoulder. Can't wait tpfor our insurance to kick in again so I can get to the fuckin chiropractor!

    ME Bench:
    Bar - 3x10
    135 - 3x5
    185 - 1x3
    215 - 1x1
    230 - 1x1
    255 - 1x1
    270 - 1x1* PR

    IBP:
    Various weight - 5x10, 1x30

    CGBP:
    5x10

    V-Bar Pushdowns:
    5x10

    Standing Rope Crunch:
    5xFailure

    Squat, biceps

    Almost didn't even lift today. Pretty sure I got another sinus infection, yay. Especially fun with no health insurance. And it's actually caused by not getting to the chiroprator to get adjusted! Lol. Same thing happened last year. My neck and cervicals get popped out of alignment and it causes my eustachian tube to collapse which causes my sinuses to block up and get infected. Can you say fun? Ughhhh. So needless to say high volume squatting was a nightmare with no balance whatsoever. I wanted to hammer my hammies too but couldn't do leg curls because when I lay down the sinus pressure makes my eyes want to pop out, hahaha. So I did what I could and called it a day, then I went and bought enough cold medicine to make a meth cook jealous... So I just varied foot position from wide stance to close to hit quads, glutes and hams. Also varied depth too, went ATG (ass to grass) for the light sets and then hit high box for the 135.

    Squats:
    ATG -
    Bar - 5x15
    95 - 5x10
    High Box -
    135 - 5x10

    Biceps:
    DB curls - 3x10
    Hammers - 3x10
    Preachers - 3x10
    One arm cables - 3x10

    Shoulders/OHP

    It was nice and chilly in the gym/garage today. Made it hard to warm up the shoulders but it was nice to not be dripping with sweat by the second set. I love shoulder day! I crush them in 30 minutes or less. But then I gotta sit around for an hour before I can shower because I can't lift my arms up! Lol. Switched it up today and did giant sets and then finished with REAL light OHP. By the time I was done with the giant sets the bar alone felt like it weighed 100 lbs. For the sets I alternated between heavy andnlight weights so I could alternate between 10-20 reps. My delts are fucking fried...

    Giant Shoulder Set:
    1. Face Pulls - 10-20 reps
    2. Front DB Raises - 10-20 reps
    3. DB Lateral Raises - 10-20 reps
    1-3 repeated four times with only 60 seconds rest between giant sets.

    OHP:
    Bar - 3x10
    65 lbs - 3x8
    85 lbs - 3x6
    Bar - 1x25

    I always love crushing them with giant sets. By the last one I'm usually using only like 5-10 lb DBs for raises because they are so shredded! I wish I woulda got a picture of how swole my delts were after that last burnout set of OHP with just the bar! Lol. The bad part was that I forgot I had to get video of my son's sing at school today. That video camera felt like I was holding up a 45 lb plate! Lol
