Stick to good form and consistent effort and you'll be jacking monster weights before you know it.

Nice program too. Interesting. Kill it.
Thanks Mike, He's no Zydrunas Savikas but he just retains his strength no matter how long its been since he last lifted. It shocks me what he does after not lifting for a few months or even a year.

Congrats on the OHP PR. That is a very satisfying lift for me. I almost obsess about it more than bench.

It's very satisfying to hold weight over your head. As my training evolves I would like to look more toward these and push presses and jerks. But i can't completely neglect my benching as we get tested for reps for rugby.

Also as a side not loooks like NBC will be filiming some of our scrimmages on tuesday as we play Notre Dame while they warm up for the televised tournament on the 4th and 5th. Can't wait to put a beating on those boys from south bend!

175x5
210x3 <-- two plates per side on my ghetto olympic bar! PR
153x8

Rows
85x5
107x5
131x5
153x5
180x3 PR
131x8

Assistance
Weighted Dips

22x8

BB Curl
68x8

68x8

Skull Crushers

Overall great workout again. the weight for the dips dropped because i have problem holding a dumbell with my big goofy feet. Dad rigged me up a belt out of a ratchet strap so i used the 22lb plate and increaseed my reps. Think next week im going to keep these weights for the assistance work but try for 10 reps on all sets.

My dad helped me with my bench form, brought my hands in just a little bit and really helped me get my feet under me. The 210 went up easy so can;t wait to smash it again on monday.

Nice work all over!

Did I miss something? Where do you play rugby? My nephew plays on a club out of Penn State. Not sure if he's still there as recently I heard he's trying to go to Ireland for a school there. Anyway, interesting sport. I love watching the Tri-Nations Cup and the bigger events that make it to my ghetto sattelite package.

Keep Crushing!

Haha no way. I play at Kutztown University. Dinky school from Pennsylvania but we play rugby pretty good (education isn't two well). Lost to Penn State by 1 point this spring. Also I got to see a tri nations game live this summer when i was Australia. Crazy how good those Aussies and Kiwis are at the game!

That's funny! He hasn't played much this year as he is recovering from a meniscus tear and microfracture surgery on his knee which happened sometime this Spring, which is also why his Ireland school scholarship is on hold (I really have to catch up with my sister and her family more goodness!). Did you play them last year? That was his first year. He's wiry dude, about 5'10'' maybe a buck sixty, long hair, doesn't look like he could crack an egg, but he's apparently fast and tough. Plays one of those outside wing positions.

Yeah, the Aussies and Kiwis are sick. The first Tri-Nations I ever saw had this monster Tanna Umonga or something like that. Seriously like 250 pounds and fast as a greyhound. I love those names they have. Umonga just sounds tough. Sounds like a comic book hero. Mike isn't so frightening. Sounds like an ex-surfer on a bar stool at any local watering hole. HA!

Good Luck against the Irish!

This week has been a little crazy with traveling around and having multiple rugby practices in the intense heat. Got a real good workout in on tuesday. Probably won't be working out again this week until we play some games on friday. The USA sevens coach will be there so as a team we want to impress more so then as individuals.

Tuesday
(started by doing what my buddy had been doing but slowly took it back to my workout)
Squats with Calf pulses

225x7 with 60 lb db each hand x50
245x7 with 65x 50
275x4 with 65x 50
275x4 with 65x 50

Bench
135x5
155x5
175x5
195x5
215x5 PR went up easy!

Rows
95x5
115x5
135x5
155x5
185x5 PR

Great workout in my book. counted the 135 as a warmup i guess or just lost track of the sets i was doing lol.
