now training for the cellblock meet in TN and having to get shit together and do it right this time.

simply as the title states...here's my recent sessions...

ME BENCH & ME SQUAT
**nuthin to say about bench day...it was was !@#$. couldn't touch weight in this bastard of a shirt. will try again next week. movin on..

squats
135x3 225x3 315x1 405x1 495x1
w/briefs
585x1 695x1
w/briefs and hardcore suit w/o knee wraps
800x2 800x2

***!@#$in felt awesome to move some real weight like its my bitch. 800 felt lite and without knee wraps too. i usually go without knee wraps until i'm close to a meet cause i know i will bury depth with them. i go about 2 inches above parallel but these were reps. no worries there. on a side note, my partners(both 242s) were !@#$in comparing their backs and traps last nite. this !@#$ was funny to see. on has traps and the other has shoulders. so you can easily see who won out on this one. though there was said flexing going on but hard to see on camera. nice competitive spirt these two have and nice to have at a barbell club. would be nice for me to go head to head with another super in training....but !@#$ is what it is...

raw bench/shoulders/triceps

***tonite i just had to get some weight in my !@#$in hands cause with all the benchin issues as of late, i was about to go insane. did some reverse bands and worked up to a PR of 765 for 3(at the bottom was 565). the weight didn't feel heavy to my surprise. maybe it was the pslin, powerfull, and perfect carb i was on before i lifted. then a !@#$in hairy human being that called himself a lifter came up to me and told me i was using too much weight on the bar and can't do that. i think i was about to snap his ass in two. no !@#$in wonder people in this city have low !@#$in standards and prefer to be normal. my god! sorry. well i had to back the weight down for a set of 675 for 5 and then took off the lights and used just the minis and did 405 for 12, 500 for 5 and 500 for 3. somewhere in there i kindly asked a skinny douchebag to help me hold the bar in place. i might as well be speakin a different !@#$in language cause he didn't understand and he said he was with a "client". i so wanted to break his ass as well! anyways, i did some ICG presses which is a combination of jm press/close-grip bench. this was awesome. not many movements can pre-exhaust my strong-ass triceps. awesome !@#$. moved onto dips and pushdowns and shoulders and was done. did 120s for 2 sets of 5. i think i might have scared a few people when i did those. oh well, tommorrow is dead day...oh and i almost forgot...when i did the 765 i was goin for the 4th rep when the plates fell off. awesome !@#$!

terrorizing the gym...

***tonite i felt really good. would of gotten more with 500 raw but didn't really expect 3 reps so i shocked myself. then dropped down to 405 for 20 total reps(see above). finished up with pec deck and dips. did some front laterals since my shoulders were already pre-exhausted from benchin and did some ICG presses again. those things work your tris a damn good bit! it was awesome! finished up with some abs and was done. friday is me dead day...a vid is coming tonite for you guys!

***got up early this morning to hit a session with some old school powerlifters. the session was definitely old school for sure. hammering out back with 4 movements which i haven't done in a while and then did rack deads and hit 880 for 3 easy. finished up with some hammers, legs, and abs and i was done. best damn session i had in a while. last nite i was really motivated by a fellow super, seth coker. he was really enthusiastic about powerlifting which got me talkin a good bit and then this morning got to talkin with another powerlifter who has done the sport longer than i have and still love it. goes to show ya, we are a different breed from the rest...the gym i trained at was defintely hardcore for gym. it was the only one i hadn't gone to. reason being was they don't do guest passes or fees. WHAT?!? yea i said the same. i would love to train there but the membership is about $50 a month....but i do like the look of old equipment and nuthin but plates and bars around. they even had a old school squat rack for squats and push presses. badass..i love it. i hope i can go back there soon.

old school....

Wow, that is a massive Raw! I think you might have sealed my decision to keep going Raw until I've built up to near that kind of weight!

Those are some excellent rack pulls! When you put the weight down are you putting it right on the pins? We're kind of worried for our bars when doing that, do you just use a crappy older bar?

Crazy back work, you're going to kill at the meet.

***tonite was a good session. benchin felt the strongest its been in a while. back in that katana again. may have to touch base with ken about a shirt...though i'm still waiting on the phenom. jon had a good nite. 705 3-board was a PR for him and was lowering the bar down faster when he went to wide grip. matt had an off night pretty much. his pec felt fine just was off was all. we had a new guy train with us, dave. he's 19 at 223 and had two bodybuilding contests and won the mr. teen alabama and wanted to do powerlifting because want to be strong and doesn't care about being on stage. benched with us tonite and got 500 off 3-board and missed 545 but wasn't a strength issue. he muscled up the 500 off 3-board but a little more time and technique he can get a 400+ raw and 500+ shirted bench. hell, he almost got 545 off 3-board. it was a great nite except for matt but he will get back on track.

LOL!! when i started this bench cycle before i did 350 for 17 reps so me hittin 345 for 23 was a huge jump. we took the bands off for the restabilization to take effect. we killed shoulders and triceps and was done. hittin deads/back with matt and jon tommorrow...however, i gave dave some learning material and a challenge that his eager to take on too...

***tonite was a great session. me and dave benched together while jon and matt would bench after us. kinda like benchin in shifts. anyways, dave, our new guy, got on the board tonite. killed 545 and 565 off 3-board and missed 605 at lockout. it was fuckin impressive on how easy he did 565. he made it look a lot easier than 545. he tried the rage x tonite too. it was awesome. dave got fired up a bit and wanted more weight on the bar. he told me afterwards that 605 or 565 didn't feel heavy. again, it was an awesome nite for him. jon had some issues with cramping that was probably related to being dehydrated. he was doin well and i see him hittin 725 next time. matt issues with his shoulder/pec continues. he was doin better than last week but still issues with the front delt on the left side. he's takin a month and doin some full-range raw work nuthin higher than 225. see what happens. its an odd issue to say the least and a lot of experienced lifters i've come across are clueless and even confused as to what happen so i'm all ears.

***tonite was a good session. my setup felt more solid more than normal. matt is still rehabbing his shoulder/pec/rotator cuff issue with reverse bands with trent who made his return to BMBB. he's more motivated than before to get back to where he was a year ago. dave had another badass benchin session. he "muscled" up 605 and 625 off 3-boards. i say that cause he's still learning technique. he did a 525 2-board first time and it was easy for him so he can do more on those. he's comin along quickly on the bench and now we are goin to work on his squat until he can squat with us in january at least right now he can learn how to squat right. matt seems to be doin a bit better..the pec is doin better so it could be a few more weeks before he is back to benchin again. jon was MIA tonite so he will be squattin with us on tuesday. as for me, 705 for 3 was purely tricep work for sure! those smith machine popups are a keeper!

triceps were actually working,

***tonite was a good squat session. we needed to have some fun and did some reverse band squats with green bands. jon did 565 on reverse band front squats. missed 605. matt got 705 on reverse band squats raw and i burred 805 for 2 sets of 2 on squats. gettin a lot more used to the suit more and more. it was productive though we probably need a deload this point since the weight felt heavy on matt and jon.

***tonite was a good session. me and matt both hit 785 well below parallell without knee wraps. then we both pushed each other to hittin 875 and giving it a ride which we got it lower than we were thinking and a lot closer to hittin depth than we both think. it was high no less but we both haven't had that much bar weight on and need to know what it felt like. jon was doin 335 for 8 reps and they were solid...too bad the bar was choking him though. he was doin front squats. got some accy day with bench and military pressin so that will be fun...

gettin there,

whew! How does your spine feel after having nearly 900 on your back!?

Even if that squat was high, thats an impressive number!


The saying goes, if the bar aint bending, you're just pretending! If the bar breaks hope no one gets hurt!

**today was a great session. jon pulled 495x9 reps. all his reps were perfect just about. matt pulled 600 raw. i think he maybe a damn good puller after all. i did 525 for 8 but after watchin the vid i had 2 more in me. funny how you think the pull is goin slow and on cam its fast as fuck. everyone was like that..kinda frustrated with people as of late. we are back to having issues gettin lifters to stick but fuck it..BMBB maybe just 3 guys right now. its all we need..

oh well...gotta deal with what we are dealt,

***tonite was a shitty session for me. everything felt fine up until the 705 where i had nuthin from the shirt at all . jon felt off too. did 545 and 565 off 3-board CG for triples which he hasn't done in a while since october then did some reps with 495. matt came in earlier and tripled 675 and doubled it on the 2nd set and then did 655 full range. so he had a great day. i'm not sure if its my cns(me) or the shirt. as usual, we will see what happens,

oh well...

Those are some serious reps!!

How are you not having people stick around lifting with you guys!? Are they just wussing out? With the numbers you guys are lifting I cant understand why anyone wouldn't stick around. For someone lifting less weight, being with those who lift more weight usually gives them more drive and ambition.

If you're ever in Florida, feel free to lift with us!

we've had maybe 12 lifters come to our garage gym and only 1 of them has managed to stick. 2 ARE questionable and the rest were fuckin quitters. period. and a lot of them didn't have the fuckin balls to say so or just didn't come. we had one that had potential and was shownig interest but stopped coming out and wouldn't even tell me why..he told someone else why.

not sure what to do at this point really...its aggravating...

***tonite i decided to go ahead and give my max dl a trial run and it was success. pulled 675 easy in it and missed 725. its been about 3 years since i've been in a suit for deads and missed how much they help. i will be coming up with a way to get used to the suit before the meet without taxing my cns. i think 750 is in the books. matt pulled 625 in his suit which looked easy and jon took the day off from deads to do some active recovery for his back. adam joined us for some pulls and is gettin back into it after a long layoff. next week is a deload for me and back at it in 2.

ahhh...deload,
