    Default The big, hairy asian's log

    Decided to start a log here so I'd quit forgetting how much weight I did previous session, makes progress confusing some times.

    Background:
    I started doing SS back in July after a 6 week layoff. Before that I was 5'11" 195, lean. I did CF and trained MMA. Hadn't done bench in a couple years, and never really squatted because I was a pussy.
    Then one glorious day, I watched a youtube vid of Jesse Marunde and said fuck it. I realized I didn't give a damn about being "lean", and I was too small.

    July:
    24yr. old, 5'11", 205 (had gained 10lbs of fat)
    Squat - 3X5 @ 265
    Bench - 3X5 @ 225
    Press - 3X5 @ 155
    PC - 5X3 @ 155
    Deads - 1X5 @ 315

    Missed a couple days for weddings, and one week around labor day due to being lazy that weekend. Ate alot, no GOMAD, but drank alot of whole milk already.
    Mid October:
    5'11", 219, leaner than in July somehow
    Squat - 3X5 @ 400
    Bench - 3X5 @ 270
    Press - 3X5 @ 185
    PC - 5X3 @ 205 (yeah, my form must suck, low number)
    Deads - 1X5 @430

    Had to reset then due to family medical emergency, flu, etc...basic shit life throws at you. Didn't micro load first time through progression, doing it this time, I like it. Making 2.5lb jumps on all, except 5lb or 7.5lb on DL depending on how I feel.
    After I reset, I decided I needed to put on more weight or I'd get crushed. I was having a really hard time breaking 220. Since then I've been eating anything I can see. Not "clean" at all. It is working.
    I'm going to compete in a PL meet Jan. 9th, shooting for 240.

    Quick update: 8-11-2010

    Got set back by car accident beginning of year, injured back. Since then I have rehabbed it, and set PRs.
    Current PR's:
    BW - 251 (few weeks back, been dieting down to 235)
    Squat - 460X5 for 2 sets, 3rd set of 2 (end of LP)
    Bench - 335 *after a lay off from bench due to tennis elbow. Not benching often cause shoulder
    Deads - 485X5 followed by 500X2...drunk
    Press - 242 *also after layoff (at 242bw)
    PC - 252 *I think, haven't really been working them

    Still haven't competed

    Yeah, I'm still doing SS. Only difference is I am doing DL on mon, PC on wed, and Chins&back extension on fri. I was having a hard time recovering from deads every other time.
    I'm making small jumps, so Texas Method or another intermediate program might be better, but I don't have PP so I'm gonna milk SS as long as I can.

    Nope, squat heavy 3X week. I thought the light day wed was a Texas Method thing? Maybe I need to re-read the SS programming chapter.

    Very impressive numbers. I guess this is what's possible if you follow the program and eat enough to put on 30lbs. Nicely done!

    Thanks man. I've never been this heavy before, I like it alot. I figure I'll just keep putting on weight (well try to) as long as I'm a novice. As long as I keep progressing, I'm down. Plus I love to eat. Man vs. Food style, haha

    Man, seems like several people on this board (and at 70sbig.com) recently ordered Inzer belts. I put in an order last Monday for a large, 10mm, single prong (in black). I haven't heard anything from them since I got my order confirmation 10 days ago. Hope all the recent orders doesn't slow down the delivery time given the already poor reputation Inzer seems to have with delivery and customer service.
