    Deathlift

    Had to run some errands today so I got to training about three hours later than I normally do. Had a HUGE breakfast at the truckstop right before I trained... not sure how I held it down, but it must've helped me with my DL! Lol. The bar was just jumping off the ground today! Crushed my 1RM by 30 muthafuckin pounds! And I JUST maxed out and put another 5 lbs on my DL 2 fucking weeks ago! Damn!

    PreWO meal:
    20 oz country fried steak
    Sausage gravy
    Hash browns
    3 eggs
    Toast
    Cheesecake

    Deathlift:
    135 - 3x3
    185 - 3x3
    225 - 2x1
    275x1
    315x1
    335x1* (10 lb PR)
    345x1** (20 lb PR)
    355x1*** (30 lb PR)

    DONE

    Needless to say the plan of hitting my upper back with pull downs and rows fell to the wayside.

    PWO:
    Grapefruit Juice
    BCAA powder
    Powerade Powder
    Amino Tabs
    Foam rolling
    Heating pad
    Naproxen
    And I plan on crying a little bit later... Lol

    DE Bench, tris, abs

    A nice chilly day out in the gym/garage this morning. Even broke out the Blue Heat! I wish it would stay this temperature year round. But I know just around the corner is the cold ass Wisconsin winter and I'll be training in temperatures dipping below 30 degrees soon enough. Ughhhh. Dynamic work went real good. Broke out the chains today and did a little more volume on my sets. Thanks J, like you said. If I'm doing sets of 5, that means I'm hitting 2 more reps on every speed set that my competition isn't doing!

    DE BENCH:
    165 lbs (60%) - 9x5 (3 CG, 3 WG, 3 standard)
    +35 lbs chains - 2x5
    +45 lbs chains - 2x5
    Bar - 1x35

    INCLINE BENCH:
    3x10
    3x10 with Fat Griz
    Bar - 1x20

    (I love doing that last burnout set with just the bar weight! Get pumped to holy fucking hell. Plus, since I started doing that I've seen a lot of new growth.)

    TRICEPS:
    V-Bar Pushdowns - 6x10

    That was it for tris since they were fried from all the bench work.

    ABS:
    Rope Crunches - 9xFail

    DONE

    You know all of us powerlifters secretly wanna be bodybuilders... admit it! Lol. Actually since I started doing more pretty boy BB type shit, I've put on a good base and my lifts have skyrocketed as you've seen! I kept stalling out and hitting plateaus when I was running Westside, but now that I'm alternating between ME, speed and high volume I haven't been stuck on a weight for more than 1—2 weeks in forever! I can't wait to start Lilly's Cube Method next week! That's the whole basis of his training. He sent me the stuff over the weekend and I should get it today or tomorrow!

    oh definitely haha! I base alot of my acc. work around higher muscle building reps and very rarely now do singles for ME work! I still want to give floor press a good run for speed work, I think it could be really effective, I bet you get some of that in brandons methods!

    keep us updated! cant wait to see what he gets you doing! I would brace yourself for some chocolate milk too from what ive been reading from others!

    Today's goal

    In about 1.5-2 hours I'll be hitting OHP. My previous best from three weeks ago was 190. I'm down another 5 lbs in bw and I WILL HIT 200 lbs today! Or die trying bitches. If this is my last post, it means I didn't lock it out and dropped it on my head. Wish me luck. Time for some chalk, Animal Rage, Blue Heat and Nose Tork...

    FAIL...

    Hit up OHP hoping for a 10 lb PR of 200. Missed it when something strained in my lower back half way up. But I tried a second time, missed it. Dropped back to 195 and just squeaked it out. Would have went up easy if I hit it before the 200 fails, but still put 5 lbs on my OHP.

    OHP:
    Bar - 3x10
    95 x 5
    135 x 3
    165 x 1
    185 x 1
    200 x 0
    200 x 0
    195 x 1* PR
    115 x 10
    Bar x 30

    DELTS:
    1. Face pulls x 10
    2. Front DB raises x 10
    3. DB laterals x 10
    1-3 repeated 3 times with no rest at all not even between supersets.

    Delts = FRIED!

    Deathlift

    DEATHLIFT:
    295 - 4x1
    295 - 2x2
    315 - 4x1
    315 - 2x2
    225 - 6x2
    225 - 1x10

    Every set I varied either weight, reps, grip or stance. Really tried to crush it from every angle. Hell, I even snuck in my speed work with 225. It worked because by the time I was done my calluses were torn and bleeding and so were my shins. I was barely able to hold the handle to do a few sets of Pulldowns because of how fucked my hands are! Lol

    Fixed DD Handle PDs:
    4x10

    DONE

    Bench, abs

    Changed up my split a little so I can focus more on each lift and really crush my assistance work. I've been doing triceps on Monday with bench but I've only been able to get maybe 5 sets of tri work in because of how fried they are after benching. So I'm moving bis and tris to Wednesday so I can focus on really crushing each lift on it's day. By doing this I was able to hit bench for over an HOUR AND A HALF today! Lol. Sure it will give me one less recovery day during the week because I'll be going Mon-Fri instead of having Wed off, but it'll be well worth it. For instance today I put another 5 lbs on my bench and then continued to bench for another hour! Holy fucking swollen tits! Damn! Lol. After my PR I tried 280 lbs, but the wife came into the garage/gym to smoke a cig and the dog was running around so I lost focus and missed it. But I'll still hit 300 by November!

    BENCH:
    Bar - 3x10
    115x5
    185x3
    235x1
    250x1
    265x1
    275x1* PR
    280x0 FAIL
    255x1
    235x2
    215x6
    185x10
    150x12
    115x17
    Bar x 50 (this was fucking brutal!)

    IBP:
    115 - 3x8-10

    CABLE CRUNCHES:
    4xFAILURE

    Thanks. I'm trying to really overload my chest without frying my CNS so I can keep going heavy and maxing out every other week. I WILL bench 300 by November! Plus with moving my tricep work to Wednesday it gave me an extra 45 minutes to destroy my chest! I'm gonna love this new 5 day split... until I can't move tomorrow! Lol.

    Squat

    My whole body was sore after that marathon bench session yesterday, so squats didn't go well at all. Still got a few good sets in and did some curls and extensions too. Short, sweet and brutal... just like my exGfs!

    SQUAT:
    Bar - 3x15
    95 - 5x10
    Bar x 20

    LEG CURLS:

    Gun Show (aka - pretty boy BB shit)

    Holy fuck! I haven't done an arms only training session in over a year. I forgot how sick the pump is. I had to stop early because I couldn't bend my damn arms! Lol. Of course, the fact that I did all supersets probably didn't help...

    SUPSERSET #1:
    CGBP x 10-20 reps
    DB curls x 10-15 reps
    Repeated for 6 supersets.

    SS #2:
    V-Bar Pushdowns x 10 reps
    Barbell curls x 10 reps
    Repeated for 3 supersets.

    SS #3:
    V-Bar Pushdowns x 15 reps
    Preacher Curls x 8-10 reps
    Repeated for 3 supersets.

    OHP/delts

    Had a rough shoulder day. My elbows were shot from the arm day yesterday. Still got a decent session in though. Nothing special, just some light weight work since my front delts were still pretty sore from maxing out on bench Monday.

    OHP:
    5x15

    DELT SS:
    1. Face Pulls x 10
    2. Front raises x 10
    3. DB laterals x 10
    1-3 repeated with no rest for 3 supersets.

    DONE

    Deathlift

    Ahhhh, it's Friday! Deathlift day, my favorite day of the week. My warmup felt like I was lifting a piece of PVC pipe, so I decided to just keep going again. And damn! Another 20 lb PR! Wtf?! Loving this. And once again, no upper back work. I think I'll just do upper back work every other Friday on DE day. Seems to be working so far! Lol.

    DEATHLIFT:
    135x3
    185x3
    225x3
    275x1
    325x1
    365x1* 10 lb PR
    375x1** 20 lb PR

    DONE

    I think one of the reasons I'm hitting so many PRs on DL is that I'm not wasting so much fucking time warming up and making small jumps in weight. I use to do 3 sets of 3 with 135, 185 and then a couple doubles at 225. Now I'm just going by the feel of it. And before I was making 5-10 lb jumps between attempts, and now once I get within 20-30 lbs of my max I just go right for a PR. That's 60 lbs I've put on my DL in a month! Could've got 380 up but I don't use 2 1/2 lb plates... Lol.

    Bench

    Pretty sore this morning still after the epic DL session Friday and then working on the house all weekend and cleaning out the garage/gym. But went in planning on just some heavy work but after quite a few sets, everything felt really light. So I did some chain work and finished with some IBP.

    BENCH:
    Bar - 3x15
    135 x 10
    185 x 10
    225 x 5
    245 x 3
    255 x 2* rep PR (I've only hit singles of that before)
    245 (90%) - 3x3
    225 (80%) - 3x5
    +30 lbs chains - 3x2
    +45 lbs chains - 3x2
    115 x 30

    IBP:
    115 - 5x8-10

    Squat = no go

    Went to squat yesterday, squatted the empty bar for warmup and my lower back just felt off. So I reracked it and walked out.

    Arms

    Had a great high volume and heavy arm day today. Beat the fuck outta my arms for over 1 1/2 hours! My strength is definitely still on the upswing. After 15 sets of CGBP and some heavy singles I hit a 30 lb PR of 255. Probably coulda got over 275 if I hadn't done so many sets before hand. Can't wait to test my bench in 2 weeks!

    TRICEPS:
    CGBP:
    Bar - 5x15
    95 - 5x10
    185 - 5x5
    215 x 3
    235 x 1* (10 lb PR)
    255 x 1** (30 lb PR)
    115 x 25

    V-BAR PDs:
    5x20


    GRIP/FOREARMS:
    CoC:
    5 x Fail

    Deathlift

    Cold out this morning and my back was real tight so I warmed up with some light rack pulls and then went into my DL work. Hit my upper back pretty good between sets too. The speed work with 65% felt like nothing! I had trouble keeping my feet flat actually! It kept feeling like my feet were gonna leave the ground... Nice!

    Rack Pulls:
    3x5

    Deathlift:
    135 - 5x5
    215 (65%) - 10x1

    Wide Grip Pulldowns:
    6x20

    Fixed DD Handle Pulldowns:
    6x15

    Standing Rope Crunches:
    10x Fail
