  1. Haven't been on here in awhile, but lifting is going pretty well. Just finished my first round of the cube method, and I'm loving it. The final week is done as a "mock meet" which was fun. Treated it as a real powerlifting meet, with commands, pause on the bench, and all that. Hit a 405 squat in knee sleeves, 265 bench (disappointed with that), and a 555 deadlift, no belt on any lifts. I'm excited to see where the next round of the cube method takes me. Hoping to hit a 300 bench and a 600 deadlift in the next few months.
  2. Hey, training is going pretty well. I've been slacking on my posts (obviously), but I'll try to do a summary update soon. I've been working like crazy, but I just quit my weekend job, so I have more free time now. I'm flattered you use work outs I've posted. How's your training going?
  3. Benedikt Magnusson actually pulled 1015 in just a belt about three years ago at Clash of the Titans. One of the most impressive feats of strength ever, IMO.

The skull crushers with the swiss bar were way better. Shoulder feels a little sore. I need to get an ice pack. 225 bench was touch and go, but it flew up.
  7. 2.25.2014 weight: 234 deficit deadlift (4" box) - 45x10 135x10 185x5 225x5 275x3 315x2 365x1 375x1 395x1 45 degree hyperextension - bodyweightx10 ruthless band 15x2 12x3 standing cable crunch - 80x15x5 battle ropes - 3 rounds @ 30 seconds reverse hyperextension - 20x20x3 395 from a deficit felt pretty easy. Thought about going 405, but decided to just leave it for next week. My shoulder is a little sore from benching yesterday. A rest day tomorrow will be good.

  10. Ha thanks man. I hit 550 from a deficit before I tore my rotator cuff. Hoping to get back to that as quickly as possible. You're hitting some solid ass numbers. And I agree, Westside is great. Just look at their lifters. The results are undeniable.
  11. 2.18.2014 weight: 234 deficit deadlift (4" box) - 135x10 185x5 225x5 275x3 315x2 365x1 375x1 385x1 45 degree hyperextension - bodyweight+fierce bandx15x5 standing cable crunch - 80x15x3 80x12x2 prowler sled push - sled+180x200ft sled+180x100 ft sled+115x200 ft reverse hyperextension - 15x20x3 We unfortunately don't have a reverse hyper machine at my gym, so i just lay my torso across a waist high box, strap weight to my feet, and perform the movement that way.
  12. Been super busy recently.

I love Westside, but felt it was unnecessary when I first went back to the gym. My shoulder has been feeling progressively better since being back, so I decided it was time to make the transition. I'm still not pushing things to absolute failure, but definitely starting to go heavier. All my reps on presses and squats have been done with a full pause since being back on Westside.
  13. 1.22.2014 weight: 227.5 trap bar fat grip deadlift - 55x10 105x10 145x10x3 dumbbell hammer curl - 20x10 30x10x3 seated calf raise - 45x10 90x10x3 done with a one second pause at the top and bottom of each rep 45 degree hyperextension - bodyweightx10x4 cable face pull - 50x15x3 prowler sled push - sled+135x200 ft x 2 Today was supposed to be a rest day for me, but now that I'm back in the groove at the gym, and I'm still going light on everything, I felt like I needed a little more volume, and I wanted to hit some muscles which weren't getting any direct work. Also, I had a really stressful day at work today, and needed to blow off some steam. This was my first time using a prowler sled, as I never had access to one until I joined this gym. Both sets were done pushing the sled the length of the gym (which I estimated at about 50 feet) and back two times. I haven't felt that close to puking from working out in a long time, so naturally I'm hooked. My nervous system is definitely shaken up, and I will be taking an epsom salt bath right after I finish typing this up.
  14. 1.20.2014 weight: 226 standing barbell military press - 25x10x2 45x10x5 back squat - 45x5 95x5 135x5 all done with a 5 second pause at the bottom of each rep lat pulldown - 100x10 130x10x5 cable pushdown - 50x10x5 shoulder rehab exercises 1.21.2014 weight: 226 standing barbell military press - 25x10 45x10 trap bar fat grip deadlift - 55x10 105x10145x10 195x10 245x10x3 good morning - 45x10 95x10x4 standing cable crunch - 60x15x5 Everything felt pretty good today. My right hamstring is always tighter than my left, and I think today I figured out that I tend to bend my left leg slightly more when doing good mornings, not putting as much tension on that hamstring. My lower back was a little tight, so I'm just going to make sure to stretch it well tonight. My new gym has 24 hour key card access, and I never thought that would matter, until today when we got a bunch of snow, and nobody was in the gym. Very thankful now for the key card.
  15. 1.17.2014 weight: 224.5 back squat - 45x5x2 95x5x2 135x10 185x5x5 front squat - 135x4x5 bench press - 45x5 95x5x3 done with a three second pause on the chest on each rep 45 degree hyperextension - bodyweightx12x3 I love Friday nights in the gym; there's hardly anyone there. Everything felt good.
  16. 1.16.2014 weight: 222 swiss bar bench press - 35x10x2 85x10 105x10x3 dumbbell triceps extension - 15x12x2 15x10 dumbbell row - 40x10 50x10x3 deadlift - 135x10x3 shoulder rehab exercises I decided to give the Swiss bar a try, as I've heard it's good for people with shoulder pain, and I know doing dumbbell presses with a neutral grip is less painful. I didn't really notice a difference. In fact, if anything, I'd say it was more painful than a regular grip, so I'll switch back next week and see how it goes. Everything else felt good.
  17. 1.14.2014 Weight: 226 Fat grip trap bar deadlift - 55x10 145x10 195x10 235x10 Standing barbell military press - 25x10x3 Good morning - 45x10 95x10x3 Standing cable crunch - 50x15x4 I decided to deadlift with the trap bar with fat grips for the time being, seeing as I have to greatly restrict the weight, due to my shoulder. So I might as well build up my grip strength as much as possible. I had to cut my work out just a bit short because I had to go to a work training.
  18. Hey James, glad to see you're still killing it. One day we will lift together.
  19. 1.13.2014 weight: 223 standing barbell military press - 25x10x2 45x10x4 lat pulldown - 100x10 130x10x4 cable pushdown - 60x10 50x10x2 back squat - 45x10 95x5 (3 second pause at the bottom of each rep) shoulder rehab exercises The squats were just to break up fascia. I will be doing a few light sets each lifting day of the previous session's primary movement for this purpose.
  20. Just a little update for anyone interested. I haven't given up on lifting. I still have shoulder pain. I haven't been to a doctor, as I still don't have health insurance, but I know I'm definitely not completely healed. I got a new job, which I started Monday. I no longer work nights and crazy hours. Just having a normal schedule makes things so much easier. One of those things is getting into a normal lifting schedule. So I signed up for a gym with two of my friends. My old gym is closed down until further notice, and has been that way for months. So I started lifting again on Monday. I've kept everything light, making sure I don't disturb my shoulder. I have no idea when I'll be fully healed. Hopefully the Obamacare site gets everything straightened out, and I can get insured and get this taken care of. But here's what this week looked like for me. 1.6.2014 standing barbell military press - 45x10x5 lat pulldown - 100x10 130x10x3 back squat - 45x10 95x5x3 rear dumbbell flye - 10x10x2 1.7.2014 weight: 221.5 deadlift - 45x10 95x10 135x10x3 185x10 good morning - 45x10 95x10x3 standing cable crunch - 50x15x3 dumbbell bench press - 35x10x3 cable face pull - 50x10x3 1.9.2014 weight: 225 dumbbell bench press - 30x10 40x10x2 barbell bench press - 45x10 95x10x3 dumbbell skull crusher - 20x10 15x10x3 dumbbell row - 40x10x3 shoulder rehab exercises 1.10.2014 weight: 221 back squat - 45x10 95x10 135x10 155x8x2 175x5 front squat - 135x3x5 45 degree back extension - bodyweightx10x2 Everything still feels fine, nothing disturbed. I also just feel so much better being back in the gym. I already feel more spry. Also, a really cool thing about my gym is that even though it's a chain, the guy who owns it is into strongman and powerlifting, so they have bands, chains, two sleds, a log press apparatus, a giant tire and sledge hammer, etc. Not that I'll be using any of that in the near future, but it's nice to know it's there when I'm ready.
  21. 5.13.2013 weight: 107.15 kg standing barbell military press - 20kgx10x2 25x5 30x5 35x5 40x10x3 bench dip - bodyweightx15x2 13 10 cat back lat pull down - 120x15x3 12x2 5.14.2013 weight: 107.75 deadlift - 50kgx10 70x5 100x5 120x5 150x5x3 hyperextension - bodyweightx15x4 decline sit up - bodyweightx12x2 10 reverse hyperextension - bodyweightx20x3 5.15.2013 weight: 107.05 standing calf raise - 90x10 180x15x3 seated calf raise - 135x15x3 rope pushdown - 70x10 100x12x3 super set with dumbbell hammer curl - 20x8 30x12x3 Had a friend come into town from Buffalo Thursday morning and stay for the weekend, so I took off from the gym so we could hang out during the day. My collarbone wasn't feeling so hot after deadlifts, so it's probably good I took a few days off. 5.20.2013 weight: 107.35 kg military press - 20kgx10x2 25x5 30x5 35x5 40x10x3 parallel bar dip - bodyweightx8x2 6x2 5 cat back lat pulldown - 120x15x3 12 10 Shoulder girdle was still sore from deadlifts last week. Gonna back off the weight for this week and see how it goes. Decided to get back on my rehab exercises.
  22. Thanks! My shoulder is still definitely not at 100%, but I'm hoping I can make steady progress with it.
  23. 5.10.2013 weight: 107.25 kg high bar squat - 20kgx10 50x5x2 70x3x2 100x5x5 front squat - 50kgx5 70x5x5 lying leg curl - 80x12x5 reverse hyperextension - bodyweightx20x3 Everything felt good today. Probably the best work out I've had since I've been back in the gym the last few weeks.
