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…



12-27-14 – Last Deadlift of the Year

Last heavy training session of the year and probably till the meet. I wasn’t the best. My goal was to hit 405, which I have done a few times, but today it wasn’t in the cards. I was feeling alright moving up in weight but I noticed the weight was coming up slow a little…



12-19-14 – Heavy Squats

Working on some reverse band squats and I’m pushing the limit today because I know its going to be one of the last heavy days before the meet. After watching the video, I feel that my form stayed strong and consistent as the weight increased. I feel that staying tight at the bottom of the…



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…



12-1-14 – Back at it with “Heavy” Deadlifts

Let me start off by saying that it feels great to start training again! Things have been REALLY hectic and to make matters worse, I am getting over a slight cold. With those bullshit reasons behind me now, I’m ready to train hard!

Deadlifts were always my weakest lift so why not start with it? Working…



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…



11-17-14 – Max Effort SS Yoke Bar Squats

Today I worked on max effort SS Yoke Bar squats, and overall they went really well. I had a good pace going all through my sets which helped me stay warm, but I was still able to get rest in between sets. When using the yolk bar, the weight is more forward on your body…



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…
