Well now it's a sure thing. I just ordered myself a size 48 Titan centurion squat suit. 500 is mine in no time. Just like 400 on bench if I can ever get the thing to let me touch.

Yesterday we did a ceremony at work, then afterwords we had to go pick weeds until almost 7:00 in the evening. Yup, stay late to pull weeds. That's the reward for a job well done in the Army.

After that I couldn't sleep well, and I still had to get up at 5:30 this morning for another short but early Army requirement.

I'm just flat out exhausted, and I know I'm not up for weights today. So instead I got the lawn cleaned up (which is practically cardio, considering I have an old school reele mower) and now I'm going to try to relax a little.

I'll lift tomorrow early, then try to get some sleep in the early evening because, once again, I have to report at 12:30 in the morning Monday morning for another Army thing.

They are running me into the ground, but it's only temporary. About half of my unit is deploying to Afghanistan. Half of them have already flown out, but there are 2 more flights to go. One of these flights is the reason I have to be in so early Monday morning.

I'll make it through. Just have to keep pushing on, driving on. And I'm not letting it get in the way of my lifting. That's one thing I won't let it do.

But I'm sure gonna try to go to bed early tonight!

Another amazing day under the iron. I did it! I touched in my bench shirt, and it felt awesome to reach that milestone in geared lifting.

Raw bench-
45x10
135x5
225x3
275x2
315x1
335x1 (PR) video

Squat-
45x5
135x5
225x3
Add knee wraps-
275x3
315x3
Add belt-
365x3 (PR)
385x3 (PR)
405x3 HUGE FREAKIN' PR!!

I squatted 405 for the first time since high school, and for the first time ever with good form less than a week ago, and I knew then that I could have done multiple reps. Today I made it happen, and it feels freaking amazing.

Bench-
135x5
225x3

Add Super Katana bench shirt-
275x1
315x1
365x1 video
385x1 TOUCH!!! WOOHOO!!!

Yup. I touched. You'll see in the video that it looks like I touched the 365, and I might have, but I know for SURE that 385 touched, and I pressed the shit out of it.

I reached all my goals for the day, so I called it at 385, but 405+ will be no problem in the shirt.

Thanks. I'm kicking it into full gear for the next few weeks. Squat suit should be here soon, and then it's on. 425 bench and 500+ squat. I can't freaking wait.



So, I'm sick. Full on sick. Last night I had to report for an Army thing at 0030 (1230 am), but soon I was literally on my back. I ended up going into the ER about 0230 in the morning to get some fluids, then I was sent home. All I've been able to keep down all day was a protein shake and a little water.

Hopefully I feel more or less better tomorrow. I need to avoid missing gym days at all cost during the last few weeks of my cycle. If I'm up for it, I'll do some deadlifts and bench.

Just did some math for fun. I realized that I've added almost 300lb to my total in the less than the 4 months I've applied myself almost exclusively to powerlifting. My total now is 1270, and before I shipped for basic training I remember being excited that I was in the 1000lb club. Ha.

So I decided to extrapolate what I may be able to accomplish in the next few years based on my progress so far. Obviously, my progress will slow as my numbers increase, but even using fairly conservative numbers I'm still projecting that I can add enough to my total to be lifting elite both raw and geared in the next 2 years.

I've already added 270lb to my total in 4 months. I firmly believe that I can replicate these results in the next year, adding 100lb to each of my lifts and increasing my total to 1570 by April 2014. This would put me at master level and just shy of elite. Also, for geared lifting, if I can get 100lb out of my gear for both bench and squats and 50 for deadlift then I'll also be just shy of elite for geared lifting.

This gets me very, very excited. I KNOW that I can keep getting stronger and better at this sport, and the thought of really being able to compete at a reasonably high level gets me freaking stoked. Like I said, I know progress will slow down as the numbers go up, but I also know that I've got a LOT more in me, and I know how to get it out.
