Squats

Squat training has been coming along pretty well! I feel that I have a good squat every week keeping my technique while also hitting depth. This week was sets of 3’s and every set felt as light as the first one. My top set was 315 for a triple, which felt fast! The only problem…



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…



2-12-15 – Deadlifts for AMAP

As many as possible (reps) with 365 being the amount lifted had me really anxious to see how much I could do it for. Being at a lower body weight of 217 lbs coming down from 235, also had me worried that I wouldn’t be able to get it more than 3 times. I finished…



2-9-15 – Internship at HPF Opened My Eyes

For those of you who did not know, for the last 10 weeks I have been interning at High Performance Fitness shadowing (assignment from my school, Robert Morris University) Mike while he trains his clients. This experience was truly…



8-28-14 – Lessons Learned from the Barbell

If it aint broke, don’t fix it, right? This statement fits perfectly in when you are following a training program that has gotten you great results. The program is helping you reach your goals and also achieve great strength and technique. So why change it at all? Today I lingered away from my typical training…



8-26-14 – Squats & More Squats!

Squat night was a complete success tonight. Every set felt strong, explosive and light! I’ve been adding more sets and going lighter and also going beltless. Today, I decided to go with pause squats for sets of 5 to build my explosiveness out of the hole. After my last working set of 5 I decided…



8-18-14 – Bench Training

Monday night bench training went extremely well and for the most part I had an awesome training session. First week of my bench cycle consisted of 3 sets of 5 reps. My first set was 145 for 5, then 165 for 5, then finally 190 for 5. Every set felt strong and the weight felt…



6-30-14 – Bench Press

Handling a lighter weight but staying under tension and maintain tightness has been improving my bench through this Bench program. I am controlling the weight and staying tight which to me has also helped with my incline bench. Though the weight is light I feel that I am becoming also more powerful pushing the bar…



6-27-14 – Don’t Let Go!

Grip was a big factor in today’s deadlifts, mainly because of the two cuts on my fingers which didn’t allow me to squeeze as tightly as I usually do. None the less, I tried to forget about it and keep my mindset on pulling strong. I knew that my last working set would be the…
