Four days in office and already abuse my powers? That'd be some sort of record.


I'm gonna get it fair and square one of these days...

You would have to beat my first day record.

That's the most backhanded way of saying "I created you fuckers, and I can take all of you OUT", and I love it.



Real talk,

Good seeing you on here Lorenzo. It'll be awesome seeing your progress.

Training has been really on and off lately thanks to tests so, actually getting in a legit training session has been pretty rare. Luckily today I got in one more session before focusing on finals.
Training Breakdown:
Deadlift:
405lbs (beltless) 3 sets of 5 reps
455lbs 2 sets of 5 reps
500lbs 1 set of 3 reps
Bench Press:
225lbs 3 sets of 10 reps

Unfortunately I don't plan on training for the next week and half, thanks to finals, so don't expect on any updates on training. Trust me it upsets me more than it upsets you...  Sad

I often take the all or nothing approach with my training when school gets busy, but I kind of wish I didn't. Just remember, OP, even a few quick workouts is better than nothing at all. Not only for the sake of keeping things moving and your muscles firing, but also for mental health and balance with dealing with the stress of finals. Good luck man.

Well guys, I caved. I decided I needed one more training session before I leave Iowa City. Today I just threw some exercises together and attempted a PR on squat.
Training Breakdown:
Squat:
Bar work 55lbs
145 for 5 reps
235 for 5 reps
325 for 3 reps
415 for 1 rep
465 for 1 rep
505 for 1 rep
545 for 1 attempted PR
465 for 3 backdown set
I was really close at nailing that 545 PR but I just came forward a little which threw me off and I needed just a slight push back. Should get it in no time with some consistent training.
Bench:
135lbs for 5 reps
185lbs for 5 reps
225lbs for 5 reps
245lbs for 3 reps
275lbs for 2 sets of 3 reps
295lbs for 3 reps
295lbs for 3 attempted but lost control on last rep.
To finish off my training session I did some power cleans for fun. Don't worry not crossing over to the dark side anytime soon.
Will post training footage once I have it edited and uploaded to youtube.

I know it got kind of sidetracked on Facebook, so I'll post it here instead.

Your lifts looked awesome. Your squat and deadlift are incredibly impressive. I don't know what your max is for bench, but you could work up into the 360's, if not higher, in 2014 if you really buckle down with it. On top of all of that, you're only a freshman, you have so much room to grow it's ridiculous. I can't wait to see how you improve in the next year that I'll be here.

I think lift-face should be mandatory for everybody's profile pics.

Alright wasn't supposed to train today, but I got bored and did some squats and deadlifts. First time training back home in a while so I've got to get readjusted to the bars and what not.
Note: All sets done beltless through out training session.
Squat:
365lbs for 3 sets of 3 reps
405lbs for 4 sets of 3 reps
I don't know if I'm getting stronger or I'm just getting more confident in working without a belt. Whatever the case may be I'm happy with todays squats.
Deadlift:
405lbs for 3 sets of 3
455lbs for 1 set of 3
455lbs for 3 singles
Deadlifts also went pretty well. The last two sets of 405lbs I threw some chains on the bar to just play around with seeing as that I've never trained with them on deadlift or much at all period. When I worked up to 455lbs it felt a little harder than I wanted it to be, but I think its just going to take some time.
By the way if anyone has any advice as to training with chains feel free to let me know I would love to start incorporating them into my training.

Step one: put chains on the bar
Step two: lift the bar
Step three:
Step four: profit

Bench Press:
265lbs for 5 reps
275lbs for 2 sets of 5 reps
295lbs for 5 reps
315lbs for 1.5 reps Sad
Note: Got a lot of questions, remarks, and funny looks about bench press setup regarding arch etc. Which begs the question how much arch is too much?
Overhead Press:
95lbs for 8 reps
115lbs for 3 sets of 8 reps
135lbs for 2 sets of 6 reps
145lbs for 3 reps
Note: Regarding over head pressing how wide of a grip does one take while pressing? Same as bench, at end of knurling, or is it just personal preference?
Barbell Rows: 4x10
Face Pulls: 3x10
Lateral Raises:3x15
Rear Delt Raises:3x15
Reverse Curls: 3x10
The race to 350 is on, Chris and Kyle...

People who aren't competitive strength athletes are going to wonder this, because they see technique differently (either in terms of what's "safe" or what's "best" for building X Y or Z body-part). If you're a powerlifter, then the technique that allows you to lift the most weight, and also doesn't get you injured, is the best technique.
