After my 295 bench I did a few sets of 225 x 5 with pauses. I'm hoping that implementing pause will make a big difference, as I have MUCH more trouble getting the weight off my chest than locking out.

It will definitely help you then! Another tip is to work on some light speed benching afterwards.

After my heavy sets, I'll take about 60% of my last 1RM and do about 5 sets of 3 with it. I like to pause mine. Explode and drive the weight up like it were your 1RM each rep. Should be really easy for you and you shouldn't need large rest intervals for it.

For example, today I did the 305x3x3, then 225x18+12. Then I stripped it down to 185 and did 5 sets of 3 paused. Really focusing on speed every single rep.

On the subject of disgusting vegetables I ate a persimmon for the first time today. Suppose its a fruit, but it was probably the shittest fruit i've ever had. Wouldnoteatagain/10

I love speed work, don't do it for the bench, but its helped a lot for the squat. Weird thing i've noticed is that it made the point at which my reps go from being very clean to grinders into a very short range. Basically anything 85% or under moves very fast, 75% moves about the same speed just the empty bar does, but as soon as I hit 90% reps slow down significantly. Probably because I do my waves in 75% at 20x2 80% at 15x2 and 85% at 10x2.

^ Not really sure, never read the e-book. My understanding is if you want to be super lean and strong Carb Nite and if you want to be large and jacked Carb Backloading.

Here's my backload today

9:00-12:00 Coffee
11:45 1/4lb sausage + coconut flour gravy + brussel sprouts
2:00 Homemade Grassfed beef vegetable stew
3:30 1 cup cottage cheese + peanut butter
4:45 Pre Workout Shake
5:00 Werkout
6:52 Kiefer Shake + 2 Bananas
7:30 12 rolls shrimp tempura and salmon + 12 rolls spicy tuna
8:30 Homemade Brownie
8:50 4oz Steak
10:15 Bowl Fruity Pebbles

^Thanks, gonna try carb nite.

My object isn't to get huge, although I want to be super strong for my weight. Just want to have achieve that elite explosive strength to weight ratio to dominate on the court.

Single digit bf by year end come at me bro.

SS doesn't do lifting until failure IIRC, it's about hitting the prescribed reps and bumping the weight up if so. If you are going to failure then you likely need to dial the weights back a little.

I would like to total 1500.. about 550 squat, 350 bench, 600 deadlift. We'll see what happens in the next ~6 weeks of training.

Right now I'm more on a path of 540, 360, 585. But it all depends on how training goes from here on out, so time to grind.


Btw, I will be competing in the 198's raw again.

I think I am getting close to the end of my bulk. Have been intermittently bulking since I got "serious" about lifting/eating about 15 months ago. Was 135lbs then, am up to 190lbs now. Waist has gone from 27.5 to 34, chest from 36 to 43. Have had to put lower body work on the shelf due to my groin injury but bench has gone from 1RM of 135lbs to 245lbs (lots of n00b gains in there obviously). May try to hold at 190lbs for a few weeks then cut back down to 175, I am 6' 0".

I eat a good amount of vegetables but not as many as I'd like. Wouldn't be the worst thing to get into.

don't bother with juicing - juicers are a pain in the ass to clean and you don't get any of the solids. i think veggie intake gets overlooked by a lot of lifting types which is a shame - they're pretty cheap and there are a lot of benefits to be had.

Halfway through my workout I called my local pizza place like a baws and ordered a 14" chicken/pepperoncini/olive pizza and 2 chicken salads with extra chicken delivered to my door around the time I expected to be back. Finished the pizza and one of the salads. Could probably do the other but I think I'll better save it for tmrw since it's an off-day.
