    Default 1000 and beyond

    • phoenix arizona seminar date
    • texas seminar date
    I've decided to start a log on here after seeing how effective it is for my roomate.
    I started the novice program back at the beginning of spring and was progressing nicely setting PR's and drinking tons of milk and eating steaks for breakfast. Then I got sent away for work for the summer and acted like a pos, my bad. So I'm back at 'er now and have set goals for 1000 in the big 3 by April 1st.

    stats - 6'2" 205
    old pr's before i sucked this summer
    backsquat - 215x5x3
    deadlift - 295x5x1
    Bench - 185x5x3
    press - 125x5x3
    powercleans i sucked at and always had to work on form
    pullups & chins 6xbw

    So I've reset everything and will be starting from scratch.
    Todays workout

    Squat - 170x5x3
    I've been working on my form hard and these felt good today

    press - 120x5x3
    bit of a problem with bar path and my breathing, its being corrected though

    Chins 4/3/2 these are the bane of my existence, I hate them more than Joe Buck.

    Looking forward to contributing and getting better.

    edit: I forgot to rate my workout for fun. Todays will be rated by Skoal tins.
    and its 3 tins/5 felt good lots of energy, but ultimately I've done these weights before so I can't go higher

    Good sleep last night and I only spent about 45 min at work today (god bless the army), so i got tons of rest and ate a bunch before the work out. Felt great going in to 'er.

    Squat
    185x5x3
    I want to jump up higher so much but I realize it would only hurt my progression in the end, so I will just keep at er day by day

    Bench
    185x5x3
    Fuckin' hard today!. Got the 1st set out nicely, but on the 4th and 5th reps of the 2nd set I thought I was done, it took a lot out of me to get them up. 3rd set surprisingly went better than the 2nd 5th rep was a hard one. Next bench workout will be awesome to give it everything i got.

    Deadlifts
    255x5x1
    This was actually the first deads day I had since being back at 'er, 255 felt harder than i remember but I got them no prob. Went overhand grip for now until it gets harder.

    Overall I felt great today, had a great day and an awesome workout plus the Sens won last night so I'm going to rate this as
    3.5/5 Mike Fishers today.

    Time for a double meat sub and a giant dip of skoal!

    Squat
    190x5x3
    felt great again today, leaned a bit forward on a couple of reps but I corrected it

    Press
    130x5x3 (PR)
    Awesome! 1st set was hard to pull off, but my second and third went well. I dont know why my first set always seems harder, but whatever works is good for me.

    Chins
    FFFFFFFFUUUUUUU chins 3-1-2...pathetic

    4/5 skoals today only because of the PR

    When i went to sleep last night i was stoked for today possible bench pr and a power clean pr i wanted today to be awesome, mixed results followed. Slept in too long to get a proper breakfast this morning but I had a good lunch to try and make up for it. Work today was boring and I was zoning out a lot. Didn't feel a lot of energy today is basically what I'm saying

    Squat
    195x5x3
    fucked up a lil' on my first set and stepped forward on the way up on my last rep. This was due to me being dumb and leaning/starting to walk forward to rack the bar while still going up. Lesson learned.

    Bench
    PR day right? wrong
    190 x 4 failed on my first set! My buddy says my bar path is all messed up, elbows flaring out, bar moving all over. Time to take a serious look at my mechanics for bench
    155x5x2 used this to try and get a better feel for a proper path

    I dont really know what to do here, I will probably end up backing off to 170 or so and work my way up again while focusing on my form a lot more.

    Power cleans
    120x3x5 PR
    wow i was happy with this today, after failing on my bench i think i took out my anger on these. Got pretty tired on my last two sets but I still squeeked er out.

    Overall not bad today, didn't feel the energy i would normally have for a day like today I don't know why but I wont make that mistake again. Next time I will decide to be better and make it happen

    3/5 today power clean saved it.
