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…



Starting a New 90 Day Challenge!

 

I have decided to start another 90 day Challenge with Project 10! I had great success with my first couple of Challenges and dropped over 30 pounds! I loved how easy it was, how good everything tasted…



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…



2-27-15 – “Do You Even Lift?”

My training logs have been MIA as of recently, but I still do get in training sessions when I can. I have been asked numerous times recently by our members “Do you still lift?” To answer everyone’s question, YES, but a little differently than I used to.

” You have so much free time and you…



6-10-14 – DE Box Squats

Man was I tired after this session. Most DE lower body days are like this. I had a great session of speed box squats taking only 40 second rest periods between sets. I moved on to sumo deads, which felt great, keeping the same short rest periods between sets. Accessories went as planned. Those seated…



6-9-14 – DE Bench w/Bands

Speed bench with bands.. this is another first for me. It was fun. Especially since the weight was so super low (only 45% of my training max) it was extra easy to explode up quickly. I’m quickly learning that incline bench isn’t my strong point. But it’s just something that I need to work at…



6-6-14 – ME Deficit Deadlifts w/Chains

Another great max effort day in the books, but still some things to work on. This is my first time doing conventional deficit deads, although it was only a deficit of a half inch. Oh and here’s a disclaimer: I hate the belt I’m using; it was on so tight (thanks hubby) that it was…



6-5-14 – ME Floor Press w/Chains

Oops. I completely forgot to record this session until the last max single, in which my butt came up anyways, so yea, no video this session. Sorry fans! I felt great after this session because I was able to get 100 lbs up, PLUS two chains (another 40ish pounds at the top), which is much…



6-3-14 – DE Box Squats

Speed day! Working on that GPP! Squats went well. I was also happy to get back to sumo deadlifts again. Felt great getting my hips back down that low. Accessories were great. First time doing seated dumbbell deadlifts. They were a bitch! I will definitely be feeling it in my abductors and glutes, and lower…



5-30-14 – DE Upper Body

Three by three of all three grips! Moved up the weight a little from last week, everything felt great! I got good leg drive for every rep this session. Today was my first time doing Meadows rows and pistol raises, so those were fun……..not! They weren’t that bad, actually. Just something new.

On a side note,…
