Re: Jamesxvx Powerlifting Journal

Ripped up some shoulders today. MP for fives sets of ten at 100. Then Some tricep pushdowns, Incline bench and Lat pulldowns with the fat bar.
Carb back loading has me feeling a lot leaner. I may not look it just yet, but I can tell more of my muscles are activating during my presses.

Second day on juggernaut and I already love the simplicity and volume. Plenty of core work too.

Starting up on Juggernaut training System tomorrow and starting to carb back load to shed some fat. Hoping the new diet and routine will keep me on my toes.

What is strong?

http://muscleandbrawn.com/strong-strength-standards-raw-natural-lifters/ This article is one of the best in relation to general goal setting with realistic outcomes.

Re: Jamesxvx Powerlifting Journal

Hit 250 on bench today. That felt great. Stalled at about half way up so lock out strength needs some improvement.

Re: Jamesxvx Powerlifting Journal

Bench
Worked up to 7x5 at 195. Felt good and pretty quick. Last couple of sets weren't as quick. But I wasn't hitting this for that many reps before smolov, so that's awesome to see.

Re: Deadlifts and squats in the same workout

It can definitely help both lifts. I found I was able to incorporate more leg drive into my deadlift and my squats were more stable. You'll adjust to it within a week or two and you'll be good to go. Make sure you're getting a solid warmup and stretch before and after, and foam roll foam roll foam r...

Re: Jamesxvx Powerlifting Journal

I had the same issue man. I started training when I was vegan and didn't know what my recovery was before but I knew I was more sore than most people. I'm all about getting in a big meal a few hours before training and then a solid one after. The shake for me can come in whenever and help me out. I'...

Re: Deadlifts and squats in the same workout

I've done it before. I ran smolov for the first time and an Ed coan DL program. It was a lot of volume but it got the job done
