    10/18/12 Bench
    All I did was bench. I did upper body the day before, not the best idea...so after this I decided to rest.

    Barx10
    95x10
    135x10
    170x2
    190x2
    205x2
    205x2
    205x2
    205x2
    205x2
    205x2

    Today is rest and tomorrow is Squat and Deadlifts. In 7 weeks it will be December 1st and I will be at my first meet. I'm excited and nervous. It has been a few months since I started training and when it was proposed I didn't know what to think. But I got pushed, and by pushed I mean encouraged. I have my moments of weakness where I think most people do, and the moments where I don't trust myself. I know the people around me (Jersey Iron) won't let me get hurt, but it is my mental game that I have to work with. My Goal by this weekend is to get depth at 300, for 1 rep, if I get 2, awesome, I just want 1. I just want to get it. Don't Think Just Do It.

    after this I couldn't really walk, I felt I should have done something else, but then I rested to long and I was out of the mode.

    LOL no problem, I should have called myself Horowitz like Tone calls me, it would have been easier. Thanks for the encouragement Brian. It is a lot of learning, and I figure I'm learning from a great group so I might as well listen. I changed some stuff on squat..which definitely helped..my first shot at 300 and barely made it work, but Andrew made a suggestion and I went with it and it worked. This week instead of in i'm pushing the arms out. I'm not in the mood to slam my hand in there again. lol. I appreciate all the help I get from everyone. I never thought i'd be excited to get up on a Saturday morning to go train..the first 2 weeks I was ehhh now I look forward to it..about 5 weeks from my first, i'm looking forward to the next 2 weeks to seeing everyone else compete. See Ya Satruday. Thanks Again!

    Good day...Should do Bench on tuesday instead of Upper body, but it just matters who is there to help spot, and encourage. Would love to do it on mondays with the team, but with work right now, that is not always an option. December is coming fast...I'm getting very excited for this meet.

    It has been a few weeks since my last post. No good excuse for it. Either way yesterday I competed in my first meet, 2012 Christmas Carnage in Allentown, PA. Though I was extremely nervous, My Team members from Jersey Iron kept me focused and on point, and the time game.

    Squat:
    1st 275 Good
    2nd 315 Good
    3rd 350 no good, went down fast got stuck at the bottom, could not get up. It was a long shot, but i wanted to give it a shot.

    Bench
    1st 205 good
    2nd 215 good
    3rd 230 good

    Deadlift
    1st 350 no good. I was over excited or something, i lost concentration during the lift, Pulled up almost fell over and it shook me up. 2 team members came in the back and just calmed me down. which i needed..i would have been done.
    2nd 350 good
    3rd 400 good

    Total 945.

    Overall I was proud and very excited. Every thing that was said to me during training, I tried to keep in my mind for every lift. after getting over the nervous I was totally fired up. My goal before the meet was 1000, not exactly sure what i was going to do to get there, but I will take 945. I was amazed, I didn't really know what I could do, and may have been able to do more. There will be more meets to come, so I expect my numbers to go up, esp with the training I have a head of me. As i've said 1000 times and I will say a million times more, Thank you to my team for the support that you gave me.

    Fat burning day..not really cardio, must keep heart rate between 112-130 for 40 minutes. The 40 minutes isn't bad, its trying not to go over the 130..avg around 125..went above 130 a few times and below 120 a few...This will be done 4 times a week, first thing in the morning 30 minutes after waking up..

    Day 2 of Smolov, and also the first day of Morning Cardio and Night training. Started the morning off with fat burning cardio. 40 minutes of trying to keep my Heart rate in the 112-130 range. Was not the easiest thing to do. The 40 minutes is not bad at all, its just doing it. and getting up at 430 in the morning to be at the gym by 5 and then go to work. I'm not making excuses as i'm doing it, im just laying it all out there.

    now for the smolov:
    Bar x7
    95x7
    135x7
    180x8
    180x8
    180x8
    195x5
    210x2
    210x2
    220x1

    The first squat on my warm up set I was ready to throw in the towel, thank god its just a warm up..when i finally got loose It just got better.. really didn't feel great until the 210...after was tired, but felt great.
