February 14, Heavy valentine's Day squats
barx10, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 275x2, 285x2, 295x2, 305x2, 315x2 PB

Good mornings
135x8, 225x8, 225x8, 225x8

Leg Press
4PPSx20, 4.5x20, 4.5x20, 4.5x20

Lunges
50sx12x3

Leg curls
90x50
80x50

Abs
Decline sits bwx60, w/20x 45

Legs felt really strong today, and I ended up with a double with 315 on my back. Came up fairly quickly, Should have hit a triple but didn't have a spotter. Worth a shot next heavy squat day.

Its been one of those months where I haven't noticed a lot of physical changes, but I've had some really good days. Hitting that double today coupled with a 475 pull off 45 plates are keeping me in good spirits. One more week on the cube then a mock meet to test my maxes.

I have a reading break next week so I'll be taking that fully off from the gym and coming back hard.
Heavy squat music
Sounds like rage against the machine

Hatebreed. Self explanatory

Thanks Rossco. I'm still on the cube, just finishing up my last cycle this week and Sunday I'll be testing my maxes. Its definitely given me a lot of gains, from what I can tell at least. Its a great method, and the routine is solid as hell. I'm thinking about branching to a different routine next week, mostly ed coan's deadlift, squat and bench. There are a few routines I've been looking into. I just want to see how my body reacts to the different routines out there I guess. I don't want to limit myself to just trying the 5/3/1 and cube.

Smolov is a killer, be prepared to increase your food intake if you run it.

How long did you run The Cube for James? You still doing your meet, can't be that many weeks away now can it? Mine is just over 7wks, can't wait !! Hope you have had a good weekend MF.

Smolov looks awesome. I love the volume that it has. I ran it for 9 weeks total, so three cycles. Hit a bunch of PRs which was awesome.

How have you been MF?

Asparagus: I'm stoked. I found a javascript to run my weights and I'm really happy seeing where I'll be at in a couple of months. I'm pretty stoked.

Last day of the cube
Squats
barx10, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 275x2, 295x1, 315x1 (Easy), 335x1 PB
Spotter's comment - "That came up fast. You don't fuck around in the hole."
It felt good, Legs felt sturdy, and I'm happy with a 10 pound PB in 2 weeks. 405 is just getting closer and closer.
OLY
225x5x5
Called her quits and did a bunch of ab work to prep for the mock meet tomorrow. Bench and dead max attempts should be fun. Hoping to put up some good numbers.
