10-17-14 – Heavy Bench for Reps

I definitely had a great bench session today! I did doing heavy sets with 5 reps. It was one of those days where I didn’t give any thought to the weight that I was throwing on the bar. All I knew was that was going up and ended up with 200 on the bar. I…



10-3-14 – Lower Body Accessories

Following a disappointing squat, or should I say, max effort reverse band bench, day, I decided to rest my hip for a minimum of a week, and perhaps picking up on it again during my next dynamic lower body day. So, today, instead of maxing on reverse band squats, I decided to void my hip…



10-2-14 – Max Effort Bench Press

Prepared and excited to finally do my max effort squats with reverse band, I hurried to the gym without even making protein or grabbing a drink. Stretched out just as I usually do, being especially careful to my pulled or strained hip, stretching it much more than…



AAPF Summer Bash Powerlifting Meet Recap

This meet was unlike any other meet I had competed in the past. Not only because this is a certified, real meet unlike the small in-house meets held at HPF, but because I am beyond unprepared….



6-15-14 – ME Lower Body, Deficit Deadlifts

New day, new cycle, new program, new everything. I was beyond pumped to final come back into HPF after not being able to come in for almost an entire week. Finally, I was able to catch a break from work, and I get sick, thus keeping me away from HPF Friday…



6-11-14 – Dynamic Effort Upper Body

Today, I came into the gym very early in the morning on a weekday which was quite strange. I saw a whole group of people in the gym that I usually don’t see. Regardless, I had my first dynamic lower body workout day including ten sets of two reps at 160 pounds on regular back…

Today, I came into the gym very early in the morning on a weekday which was quite strange. I saw a whole group of people in the gym that I usually don’t see. Regardless, I had my first dynamic lower body workout day including ten sets of two reps at 160 pounds on regular back…



6-4-14 – ME Upper Body, Close Grip Bench Press

Following my first max effort day on my new program, I have a whole other max effort day. Only this time, the max effort was for my upper body including close grip bench press. This was fine news with me because I had at least done a little close grip bench press work in the…



5-13-14 – Absolute Focus

  Today marks the single greatest day at HPF to date. First, before I get ahead of myself, I should talk about my warm ups and thought process and all that. I was well aware of today being my final heavy day of any kind before May 24th. Today was the day…



5-28-14 – Max Effort Lower Body, Front Squat

After the meet on May 24th, most of my days in HPF have consisted of just rest and relaxation. Today, I received my new program. Not only was it a new cycle, but it was a new program entirely. At first, I was very skeptical about it. I had always trained on my old program…
