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…



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…



11-12-14 – Lots & Lots of Floor Presses

Working on floor press today and I decided to do as many sets as possible so when the weight started to get heavy I started going up by 5 pound increments. Not being able to lock my legs in and push my heels towards the ground takes a lot of power away and I could…



10-13-14 – Floor Press w/ Fat Grips & Chains

It’s nice training with the place to myself sometimes. It allows for a peaceful session where my mind is focused on the task at hand. My bench has been lacking lately so I decided to make it more difficult by eliminating leg drive, using a fatter grip while making the weight heavier off my chest….



8-23-14 – Max Effort Bench Press w/ Fat Grips

Had max effort upper body today and I worked on floor press. I was in a rush today because the gym was closing soon but I feel like it kept me more focused. I made small jumps in the beginning and when it started to feel a little heavy I began…

Max effort close grip bench with fat grips. Today was difficult but that’s what made it awesome! I started out benching and made big jumps in the beginning and slowly decreased the jumps as I got higher in weight. I finished up with 200 for a single and then took a…



5-18-14 – Heavy Bench w/ Fat Grips

My lovely wife, Gina, and I trained after business hours so we could have time to focus on what we had to do. Things were just not going right for me. I was low on energy, focus was not as sharp as usual, and the weight was feeling very heavy. Feeling very agitated I managed…



5-12-14 – Fat Grips & Chains

I have been working with Fat Grips in these recent weeks and I have a love/hate relationship with them. Max effort floor press with chains and Fat Grips was the weapon of choice for today’s training session. I was able to maintain a tight position throughout my sets. This is important because unlike a regular…



5-6-14 – Fat Grips & Pumped Arms

Today I was able to work on my new bench press set up. I usually arch very heavily and tuck my feet far behind my body. I have recently not been able to get the most out of my leg drive. It was also brought to my attention that I don’t take full advantage of…
