Nice job. That's a great honor.

Thanks, Steve. I was upset with my lifts after the squat, so didn't mind leaving when my friend wanted to go, but didn't realize that I could still get Best Lifter anyway.

My meet I was disappointed that they didn't have a best lifter.

I know it sounds selfish but after 25 years it would have been nice to get one award.

What's up next? What training approach are you going to use?

I thought all meets have at least one Best Lifter award.

Next is an RPS meet on January 28th in Newark, NJ. I won't be using any particular program, just doing my own thing, using different variations of the competitive lifts, like bands & chains for the bench and dead, along with important assistance lifts, such as the front squat, GM, RDL, GHR, flat dumbbell bench, rows, pull-ups, etc.

I'm also going to be smarter with my attempts, making sure that I get 5lb meet PRs before proceeding heavier.



12.14.11
Grip


Rolling Thunder Deadlift: 3 sets of 1 with each hand w/ 120 (not including weight of loading pin and RT handle)

^ I couldn't do a fourth single with either hand. I want to get up to 200 with this.

Rolling thunder deadlift sounds vicious but cool

Yeah, it's a one-hand deadlift with a revolving, thick handle.

12.15.11

Bench Press: 5 sets of 2 with 165 + mini long bands

Behind-The-Neck Push Press: 4,3,2,2 with 185

^ PR for the first set

Flat Dumbbell Bench Press: 7,6,5 with 85s

^ I can't recall my PR with dumbbells, but this was lower than expected. However, it makes sense because my chest, shoulders, and triceps were becoming fatigued after the barbell bench w/ bands and BTN push press.

EZ-Bar Skullcrusher: 3 sets of 5 with 80

^ This was also a little disappointing because I did 3 sets of 10 w/ 70, a few weeks ago, shortly before the recent meet. I figured it's due to my triceps not having much left after everything done before the skullcrusher.



12.17.11

Deadlift: 0,0,1 with 495 + mini short bands

^ My grip was slipping during the first two attempts. The first single was nearly finished when I dropped it, but the 2nd wasn't as close. I managed to hold on to the bar until the end when I tried a third time. I also tore a chunk of skin out of my left palm during that 3rd one, like the past couple of months.

- The successful 3rd attempt was a PR with the mini bands.

Romanian Deadlift: 3 sets of 5 with 275

^ Can you believe that I never did an RDL before today? My hamstrings were very sore for the next 2-3 days, which surprised me because 275 is slightly under half of my 1RM regular deadlift.

Pendlay Row: 4 sets of 3 with 275

^ I didn't realize until afterward that I performed 5 sets of 3 with this weight, about one month ago, along with 4 sets of 2 w/ 285, one week after that.

Close-Grip Overhand Pull-Up: 3 sets of 5 with BW+25

^ This was a new pull-up variation for me.





12.19.11
Grip


Gripper: 1 set of 3 with CoC #2, then 3 partial singles with CoC #2.5

^ same # of reps/sets for each hand, but closer to closing the 2.5 with my right hand



12.20.11

Pause Squat: 1 set of 1 with 365 (no-belt PR and pause PR)

^ I was essentially testing myself here because I haven't done this squat variation since 2007, if I recall correctly. I'm most likely capable of significantly more because the 365 wasn't a grinder.

- After watching the video, I saw that the pause with 365 was not as long as I intended. I will try to stay in the hole for at least another second or two when I do it again.

-- Besides not using a belt, I also wore my Chucks for the whole session, during and after the pause squats. The rationale for making the switch from weightlifting shoes is that I probably won't have as much forward lean.

Front Squat: 4 sets of 2 with 265 (w/o belt)

Bottom-Position Good Morning: 3 sets of 3 with 265 (w/o belt)

^ This was a new GM variation for me.

Seated Calf Raise: 3 sets of 12 with 115
