8-7-15 – Dynamic Lower Body (Day 4/90 on the Challenge)

It’s 4:30 am and I hear the alarm going off. I jumped out of bed and knew I had work to do this morning. Since we went to sleep earlier than usual last night, I woke up with a lot more energy. I got ready in a hurry, filled my shaker cup with…



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…



11-22-14 – Dynamic Effort, Lower Body

Today went pretty much just like last dynamic lower body day which is a good thing. I was really focused and kept up a good pace throughout the workout. I worked on speed squats and they came up good and fast and each set was the same in speed and in form. After speed squats…



11-16-14 – Dynamic Effort, Upper Body

I was cut short today due to the amount of homework that I had to get through today so I was only able to get through 3 of my lifts but I made them count. I started off with speed bench at I did 9 sets of 3 with switching up the grip every three…



11-13-14 Dynamic Effort, Lower Body

Dynamic lower body day and I’m working on my speed squats again with a 10 pound increase from last week. The weight felt about the same as last week but it felt like it came up faster and my leg was not hurting this time. I was doing another 10 sets of two with a…



11-6-14 – Dynamic Effort Upper Body

I started off today by rolling out for a long time because I was still sore from my dynamic lower body day. I paid extra attention to my left leg because it was the tendency to cramp up a lot when I push into my arch. After warming up and rolling out I started doing…



11-5-14 – Dynamic Effort Squats

Today I worked on speed squats for dynamic lower body day which means 10 sets of 2 reps as fast as possible with keeping good form. I stretched out really well before hand and even stretched out my shoulders so they wouldn’t cramp up as I pushed my elbows under the bar. The day started…



9-25-14 – Speed Squats

I swear, squatting 600 lbs is less painful than squatting an empty bar. I better start warming up a little better or I’m just getting old. All jokes aside, my squats went very well. I brought my hands a bit closer to my body on my last couple of sets and I felt much more…



9-23-14 – Dynamic Effort Bench Press

It’s time to get back on track. I have been away from my training logs since we have started our new venture with Visalus. My nutrition has been a lot better, my clothes are fitting better and I am just feeling better all around. I have still been training hard, but my training schedule has…



8-18-14 – Dynamic Effort Squats

For the next couple of months I am going to do movements that indirectly work my lower back. This, I feel will help strengthen it and allowing me to work on my weak point. All 10 sets of 310lbs * with the SS Yoke Bar moved very fast. I made sure I exaggerated my technique…
