    Brusier's Training Log

    Well, something happened to my account and I was accidentally "banned for spamming" this week. Which wiped out all my posts and my entire training log. So I'm not going back into all the f'n details about what has led me here, why I do it or any of that shit. So here's my journey.

    Monday - triceps, abs

    Since I did a push/pull Saturday, I decided not to bench and just hit tris/abs.

    CGBP:
    6x8-20

    Tricep PD:
    6x8-12

    Each set was SS with abs

    Standing rope crunch
    Seated rope crunch
    Muay Thai knee lifts

    I recently switched from a rope to a V-Bar for PDs. Wow! I can handle about twice the weight and my triceps are blowing the hell up! Love it!

    Tuesday - Squats, biceps

    High box squats:
    Bar - 3x20
    135 - 3x10
    185 - 3x5
    225 - 1x1
    245 - 1x1
    265 - 1x1
    275 - 1x1

    Because of back issues I've never been able to squat more than 225, and when I did that I weighed 270! So hitting 275 off a high box after 12 sets while weighing 225 was amazing!

    Preacher curls:
    3x8-12

    DB curls:
    3x8-10

    EZ bar curls:
    3x8

    DL, back and grip

    Since I did a push/pull max out last Saturday and did heavy box squats Tuesday, I planned to take it easy today... Lol. But speed rack pulls felt good so I ended up working up to a PR! My best sumo DL was 315, and my best conventional was probably under 260. Conventional just never felt right, until today! Who woulda thought that pulling sumo all this year was nothing more than assistance work?! Lol. I'll be sticking with conventional stance now and I see hitting 400 by Nov/Dec easily!

    Warm up:
    Bar squats - 3x10
    Rack pulls w/ bar - 3x5

    Speed Rack Pulls (mid shin, sumo):
    115 - 3x2
    165 - 3x2

    Deathlift:
    135 x 1
    225 x 1
    295 x 1*
    320 x 1**

    *PR for conventional
    **PR for ALL DL

    Back work:
    WG PDs - 3x10
    Reverse grip PDs - 3x10
    Fixed DD handle PDs - 3x10

    Grip work:
    4" grenade ball holds - 3x ALAP
    CoC - 3x Failure
    Wrist curls - 3x15
    Reverse wrist curls - 3x8

    New Program/Split

    Since I'm now gonna be pulling conventional instead of sumo and my squat is doing great with no back pain I'm switching up my routine. I've had trouble with joint pain while running Westside/conjugate so I'm altering it a little to work best for me. I don't have assistance work listed but here it is.

    Week 1:
    Mon - ME Bench
    Tue - DE squat
    Wed - OFF
    Thu - OHP
    Fri - ME deadlift (sumo)

    Week 2:
    Mon - DE Bench
    Tue - ME squat
    Wed - OFF
    Thu - OHP
    Fri - DE deadlift (sumo)

    Week 3:
    Mon - ME incline bench
    Tue - DE box squat
    Wed - OFF
    Thu - OHP
    Fri - ME deadlift (conventional)

    Week 4:
    Mon - DE incline bench
    Tue - ME box squat
    Wed - OFF
    Thu - OHP
    Fri - DE deadlift (conventional)

    Repeat:

    I think this is gonna work great. Then either once a month or every other month on a Saturday I drive the 4 hours round trip to train at Jakked Hardcore in Montgomery, IL where I will do two ME lifts to test my strength (bench/DL, squat/DL, squat/bench).

    I'm really psyched to out this into action!

    Hahaha yeah they're fucking fried man! I usually do biceps on Squat day, but had to change up and DL today since I'm working with a coach on Friday to fix my squat. So all that pulling and curling killed em today! Lol

    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.

    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.

    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!
