Can't wait to see where your total is by year's end. The next 5 years are going to be crazy for you. Stay healthy and smash records.

The goal is 1400 before the end of the year, hopefully still as a 165lb lifter.

Good luck in 2013, Steve!

02.24.13
Raw Unity Meet 6
Tampa, Florida



I made weight easier than my previous meet, last November, probably due to drinking more water during the three-day superhydration period, ending about 24 hours before weigh-in. For this meet, I drank 2.8 gallons on the third day, and 2.1 or 2.2 in November. I also used the sauna, but not for too long. I didn't drink a bottle of magnesium citrate, which I used for the Nov meet for the first time. Made weight around 11:45 AM, much earlier than Nov, which was close to 7:00 PM.


Squat
1st: 435.4 (good lift)
2nd: 468.5 (good lift)
3rd: Passed

^ I lowered my 2nd attempt from 473 to 468 because the opener felt more difficult than it should've, causing me to lean forward more than I wanted. Didn't take a 3rd because I didn't smoke it, though it wasn't the most brutal grinder either. Like the past few meets, I was conserving my strength/energy for the bench and dead. Thinking about it later, maybe I should've tried another 2.5 or 5kgs with a 3rd, because it was the biggest raw meet of the year, would've improved my national rankings for the squat and total, along with my placing for the meet.

- The 468.5 was a 3.5lb meet PR, but also 1.5lbs below my gym PR of 470, one month prior to RUM, in my latest skills evaluation.


Bench Press
1st: 275.5 (good lift)
2nd: 292.1 (no lift)
3rd: 292.1 (no lift)

^ My plan was to choose 286 for my 2nd, not 292, but I saw a friend who I hadn't seen in years, and besides giving me the lift-offs in the warmup area and on the platform, he convinced me to pick a heavier 2nd attempt because he was a little overzealous about me possibly beating one of the other 165lb lifters who he apparently dislikes. I should've stayed with my intended # because I failed both the 2nd and 3rd near the end. Disappointed because I left 11lbs on the platform, and also would've defeated one guy who had a total that was only 5.5lbs higher than mine.

- The 275.5 was a 5.5 meet PR, but also 19.5lbs below my gym PR of 295 (paused), in that same skills eval.


Deadlift
1st: 534.6 (good lift)
2nd: 584.2 (good lift)
3rd: 600.7 (no lift)

^ 534 was a joke, and 584 was a little difficult, not a grinder. I pulled 600 to slightly above my knees, but couldn't finish it. Maybe I would've been successful with 595 after 584, another weight that I was thinking about choosing, but that's okay. I'll smash 590 and then give 600 another ride when I compete again, hopefully strong enough for both.

- The 584.2 was a 9.2lb meet PR, but also 5.8lbs below my gym PR of 590, one month ago, same day as the other two gym PRs.


Total: 1328 @ 164.2

- I enjoyed competing at my first RUM, along with meeting a bunch of great lifters for the first time, including Tony Conyers, Paul Nguyen, Tom Roselli, Vashon Perryman, Ellen Stein, Johnny Vasquez, Eric Talmant, and Jamie Lewis. Definitely looking forward to my next meet, most likely in May, then probably another one or two before the end of the year, and the next RUM in January or February 2014.

Thanks, Rob.




03.02.13


Bench Press, Touch And Go: 14,13,10 with 185

^ 3rd set was disappointing because I wanted at least 12 reps, maybe 13. Also wanted to do a fourth set, but I shut it down because I still had another big movement to do, the BTNPP. I haven't done high-rep benching in a while. It should be easier next week.


Push Press, Behind The Neck: 4 sets of 1 with 185, then 4 sets of 5 with 135


Dumbbell Pullover: 10,5 with 100

^ 2nd set was shitty, but my previous best with this weight was one set of ten, nothing after that, so whatever.


Barbell Curl: 1 set of 35 with 45 (empty bar)

^ 2-rep PR

- Just some high-rep curling nonsense.

I might do an RPS meet in New Jersey, mid-May, and/or a USPF meet in mid-July which is in Vermont. Which meet is next for you? UPA in Iowa? When is that?

03.05.13


Back Squat: 1 set of 3, then 7 sets of 2, all with 405 (belt)


Front Squat: 6,5,4,1 with 225 (no belt)

^ Racked it after the 1st rep of the 4th set. Legs were shot.


Good Morning: 2 sets of 10 with 230 (no belt)


Calf Raise, Horizontal Machine: 1 set of 15 with 275


Ab Crunch, Machine: 1 set of 12 with 210

- This was the start of the program from Hepburn's Law, a book by John Myles and Doug Hepburn. I'm doing something very similar to the protocol in that publication.
http://sandowplus.co.uk/Competition/...urns%20Law.pdf




03.06.13


Bench Press, Flat, Paused: 1 set of 3, then 7 sets of 2, all with 250 (belt)


Bench Press, Incline, Touch & Go: 6,5,3 with 185 (no belt)

^ Failed the 4th rep of the 3rd set.


Pullup, Neutral Grip: 2 sets of 10 with BW+45


Pushdown w/ V-Bar and Fat Gripz: 3 sets of 5 with 200




03.09.13


Conventional Deadlift: 3,2,2,2,1,0 with 505 (no straps, belt)

^ Quads were still sore due to the sickeningly brutal squat session from four days prior, which resulted in less pop from the floor. I'm also pulling with a Texas Power Bar, not a deadlift bar, so that could've made it more difficult too.

- I gotta start using my singlet and baby powder in training again.


Sumo Deadlift: 5,4,3 with 405 (no straps, belt)

^ One of my hands was grinding against my leg, so I brought my grip closer in subsequent sets, and that helped.


Shrug: 2 sets of 15 with 405 (straps, no belt)

^ This was done from the floor, after a deadlift.


Pendlay Row: 2 sets of 8 with 225 (straps, no belt)

- This was the first workout in my home gym, which I'm still in the process of building in my garage, after recently moving into my girlfriend's house in Long Island, not far from my previous place of residence, in Queens. We currently have a great deadlift platform, Texas Power Bar, ~500lbs in plates, a flat/incline bench, a bunch of kettlebells, sled, keg, sandbag, and partially constructed the squat rack. Waiting for a weight tree and weight clips in the mail, and will probably be ordering a deadlift jack, deadlift bar, and more 45s in the near future.




03.10.13


Power Clean & Push Press: 3,2,2,1 with 195

^ One clean followed by multiple reps of the PP.

- I put on my belt after the first couple of work sets, but should've done that from the beginning. It was harder without the belt. Also, the plates were sliding away from one side of the bar during the cleans because I currently don't have any weight clips. That made it more difficult too.


Power Clean & Strict Press: 6,5,4,4,4,3 with 135 (no belt)

^ One clean followed by multiple reps of the SP.


Barbell Curl: 10,9,8 with 85


Reverse Curl w/ Fat Gripz: 2 sets of 12 with 45


Ab Wheel, Kneeling: 1 set of 15
