8-6-15 – Dynamic Bench Day (Day 3/90 on the Challenge)

Today started off not going as planned. I set my alarm for 4:45am and after getting up and shutting it off, I laid back in bed next to my beautiful wife…



8-3 & 4-15 – Start of the Challenge -Max Effort Upper & Lower

8-3-15
Today is the day where I am starting my new 90 Day Challenge. After talking to Monica Brant about nutrition earlier, I was ready to crush my next Challenge. She gave me some very good advice that I will follow through with. I feel that with everything that has been going on recently, I…



Bench Press

I have been training my bench a bit differently by applying “pause bench” to my main lift. All my working sets that I do are all paused for 3 second pauses. This helps me stay tight at the bottom while also building explosiveness off my chest. You have to pause at meets for bench press…



2-10-15 – Back at it!!!

Starting back up on my training logs, I haven’t done a training log in a very long time and it’s time to hop back on the wagon! A new year with new things to come, and one of them is getting stronger at a lighter weight. My current body weight is at 222, coming down…

12-15-14 – Heavy Close Grip Bench Press

Feeling like I’m getting back in the groove, compared to my last training session. Today I worked on close grip bench and worked up to a max single. It all felt pretty good as I worked my way up in weight but as it got heavy I started to slide backwards on the bench when…



12-2-14 – Max Effort Close Grip Bench Press

Today was Day 2 to getting my training back together. I am a little sore from my session but not as much as I thought. I wanted to work my triceps a little more today so heavy close grip bench press was the perfect solution! From my warm ups to my last heavy set, every…



11-20-14 – 2 Board Benching w/ Fat Grips

Well today I was supposed to work on two board close grip bench with fat grips buuuut I read my program wrong and ended up doing it regular grip. Oops! All in all, the day turned out really well. My working sets took a lot longer than I had planned because I started taking my…
