    Hey Vin! I just wanted to stop by and say sup. I've been reading through your log, literally, the whole thing, and man it's so inspirational. I'm on a cut right now, will be for the next year or so, haha, but it's awesome seeing the work outs your putting together, it gives me hope for the future. Thanks for hanging out here and helping us along. Looking forward to adding tabatas to my workout. One question, on the cardio, I read you do medium pace high incline treadmill, how's that been working for the cut? subbed

    Thanks Mark. I am doing two days of hiit interval treadmill work in the morning on an empty stomach. I am doing three days of medium pace incline for three other days in the afternoon. My diet has been perfect for the past 2.5 weeks. So it is difficult to say how just one thing is working out. In concert with the entire plan, they are working out very well.

    There is nothing wrong with a little treat. A man once said "its surprising how you can live without the necessities in life, providing you have a little luxury." LOL i use that every time i treat my self.

    I have a question for you. How do you prepare your self for a new jump in weights? Next sunday I am going to go upto 700lbs of boards. I have never had that weight in my hands outside a power rack. I have used the weight many times for raw lockouts but always in the rack. I have had people tell me that its easier on the bench because you have your proper setup and you can use your legs to drive. These things can not be used from the floor which is how i do my lockouts. Any advice?

    I never really prepare for heavier weights, I just do them. A bunch of years ago, Ron Dayton, past APF Sr Nationals Champ brought a triple ply denim into the gym. It was too much shirt for him, so he told me to give it a try. I think my best bench at the time was 767.5. Well, we started somewhere around 700 lbs and it was not close to touching. He just kept adding on weight about 50lbs at a time until we were over 900. I just kept going with whatever he put on. I never came close to touching, it was like shirt lockout work.

    Anyway, the point is, I never thought about the weight. I was confident in myself and confident with Ron. Robert "Tee Tee" McCray (now a 900 lb bencher himself) had just started training with me at that time. He was shocked at what he was seeing. He recalls the story often. Maybe that's where SFW came from.

    4/6/10

    Tuesday

    -Bench 355 3x5
    -SS Seated pulley rows 110 5x12 w/seated oh dumbell tri ext 60 4x15
    -SS Pushdowns 60 4x15 w/seated dumbell press 55 4x15
    -SS face pulls mini band 4x15 w/pullaparts mini band 4x15

    -Treadmill, 30 minutes steady no incline

    This is now an additional day of cardio for me. I am up to 6. I was supposed to go incline, but my calves and shins are killing me. I just kept a good pace and felt much better. Also. this was a medium carb day. It used to be a high day. I did not notice a great difference in strength. I'm down to one high day a week. Interestingly, my weight has not dropped in two weeks now. However, My pants continue to get looser and I am seeing veins I have never seen before. I used to only see three. One in each foot and another, well, let's just say someplace else.

    Diet tip.

    I know this is feeble, but I threw it out there in the diet section. For those of you struggling with a diet like myself, try freezing a protein shake. I freeze my last one of the night, every night and eat it with a spoon. It's not much, but it's something.

    OH NO!! You sound like a bodybuilder. say it aint so. if you have spent time checking out your veins, that the first sign of you turning. you know what Yoda said "veins lead to posing, posing leads to tanning lotion, tanning lotion is WRONG"

    Awsome stuff Vince, its great that your getting rewards for all the hard work you are putting in.
