    BombDonald's Powerlifting Log

    Decided to start keeping an online log since I always seem to misplace my written one.



    Currently working on filling out the 198 weight class as I am outgrowing the 181s. Two hour weigh-ins are not conducive to a lot of cutting. My bodyweight is hovering around a lean 187ish right now.



    Due to just starting a full-time overnight job as a stockboy and taking classes, my recovery is not up to par because of a crazy sleeping schedule, and my appetite has been complete crap lately.



    This is basically my workout schedule I have planned right now:

    Sunday- Rest
    Monday- Squat/Bench/Chins/Deadlifts (moderate weight) & Arms/Calves (low volume)
    Tuesday- Rest
    Wednesday- Rest
    Thursday- Squat/Bench/Chins/Deadlifts (heavy weight) & Arms/Calves (low volume)
    Friday- Rest
    Saturday- Arms/Calves (high volume)

    My arms and calves are lagging big time so I am going to start hitting them a lot.



    Goals by the end of the year are as followed (a little lofty but not unreasonable )
    Squat- 495x3 (beltless)
    Bench Press 365x3
    Chins 120x3
    Deadlift 565x3 (beltless)
    Arms 16.5"
    Calves 16"

    Thursday, September 2nd, 3:30pm

    1. Squat 405x4-3-2 (beltless)

    2A. Bench Press 315x4-3-3 (had very light help on a few reps)
    2B. Chins 80x4-3-3

    3. Deadlift 495x3-3-2 (beltless, VERY solid. I like having an audience lol)

    4. Dimel Deadlifts 135x20-20 (just getting a feel for them)

    5A. JM Press 185x6-5-4
    5B. Barbell Curls 105x6-5-4

    6. Standing Calf Raises 180x8-8-8-8-8


    Not too shabby for not sleeping at all last night. This workout was done with the idea that I won't be back at it until monday. Hip was acting up a bit on squats, but I worked through it. I really should be able to do 6-8 with 405 on squats if I was injury free.

    I might switch back to a full-body 3x week routine if I can hold myself back from going all out each session.

    I am basically going to decide between these two programs for the next couple of months:

    Option 1

    Sunday - Rest
    Monday - Squat/Bench/Chins (heavy) + accessory work
    Tuesday - Rest
    Wednesday - Rest
    Thursday - Squat/Bench/Chins (moderate) + accessory work
    Friday - Rest
    Saturday - Deadlift + accessory work

    *OR*

    Sunday - Rest
    Monday - Squat/Bench/Chins (heavy)
    Tuesday - Rest
    Wednesday - Squat/Bench/Chins (light)
    Thursday - Rest
    Friday - Squat/Bench/Chins (moderate)
    Saturday - Rest
    (accessory work would be less frequent)


    Just thinking out loud.

    Thursday September 9th, 3:30pm

    1. Squats 405x3 315x8 225x15 (beltless)

    2A. Bench Press 315x3 275x8 225x15
    2B. Chins 80x3 40x8 BWTx15

    Really crappy workout. Squat form is terrible right now and my lower back got raped, but at least my hip is starting to feel good again. Sets were not all that hard though. Bench/chins were blah. I just had terrible heartburn today and I was still kind of hungover, lol.

    Just ordered some Rogue Do Wins today, so I am pumped. Also, I am going to start squatting/deadlifting with a belt again. I really don't like not wearing one.

    1. Squats 405x6-5-4

    2A. Bench Presss 295x6-5-4
    2B. Chins 60x6-5-4

    Ahhh. Low volume, but I am fairly drained. It also felt good. It felt a little heavier than it should have, but I will take it.

    Tomorrow my Do Wins should be coming in the mail. Can't wait to try squatting in them on wednesday. Probably going to be a heavy day.

    Thanks dude. Pay attention though, my lifts SHOULD be skyrocketing within the next couple months though haha.


    Wednesday September 15th

    1. Squats 455x1 475xFAIL (my hip just locked up when I hit depth. It isn't as recovered as I thought. The 455 was pretty easy though.)

    2A. Bench Press 315x4-3-3
    2B. Chins 80x4-3-3

    3A. JM Press 185x6-5-4
    3B. EZ Bar Curls 95x6-5-4

    4. Deadlifts 565xFAIL (just missed it at lockout) 495x3


    Lower back felt really good today so I went for some heavy deads. Should have hit 545 first, then considered 565.

    Friday will be an easier and lighter day.

    1. Squat 455x3-2-1(failed the 2nd rep)

    2A. Bench Press 315x3-2-2 (terrible, just terrible)
    2B. Chins 80x3-2-2 (meh)

    3A. Press 135x12-10-8
    3B. BB Row 185x12-10-8 (just feeling these out)

    4. Leg Curls 110x15-15-15

    Solid workout, but squats took a lot out of me. Wednesday will be fairly easy.


    Decided I am going to do a meet on the 30th of October since I realized my Junior eligibility ends at the end of this year and not next year. I am going to shoot for a high 1400s total and maybe take a run at the Junior Total record for 198. Hopefully a 534-540 (242.5-245kg) squat will be in the mix. I will just go for broke on my 3rd attempt with that, then will get a mid-300s bench and a high-500s deadlift. My weight will probably only be around 190 at that point so I will be coming in a bit light (unless I can finally get fat).

    Upping my junk food intake as I type this. I am devouring a bowl of ice cream and a bunch of fudge covered graham crackers. Figure I might as well get as close as I can to 198 by the end of October, regardless of body comp.

    It was today I realized how crappy my old wrist wraps were. Just got a pair of APT Strangulators in the mail (only 12") and have no idea how I actually conisdered my old ones useful at all. My old ones were longer but stretchy as hell. Can't wait to try my new ones out tomorrow. They are so stiff that they actually kind of hurt.

    Wednesday September 22nd, 3:00pm

    1. Squats 405x7 (failed 8, grrrrrr)

    2A. Bench Press 275x8-6-4 (these were TOUGH. My elbows hurt a lot from my failed squat rep, and I wasn't as recovered as I thought I was from monday)
    2B. Chins 40x8-6-4

    3. Cheat Shrugs 405x15 (strap slipped, WTF?)

    4A. JM Press 135x15-10-8
    4B. EZ Bar Curls 75x15-10-8 (no rest between exercises at all)


    Overall, it was terrible. If I am going to keep doing full-body workouts, I gotta keep the volume of my assistance exercises in check, AND STOP FAILING SQUATS ALL THE FREAKING TIME!!!!!

    Friday will be easy, I promise that to myself this time. I MIGHT do some heavy deadlifts after some light squats/bench/chins though.

    Haha you will get there, Germinator.

    When I set the bar down in the rack it always seems like my arms get pulled back and that puts a ton of stress on my elbows.

    Solution? Stop being a pussy and missing squats.

    You know what really makes me laugh about that one thread is those certain people who are so gung ho about that whole program and how to train are arguing with a guy who's a hell of a lot stronger and has actually done a meet, something they want to do someday. LOL, give me a break.


    I like seeing when young guys already have their acts together early on, makes the future even brighter. You're a freakin beast man, can't imagine what you'll be doing when you reach my old age haha! I'm in for some motivation.

    Ha I agree. I get a little full of myself sometimes as well, but when that happens I go watch some videos of Ryan Celli to put myself back in my place. There is always someone stronger and smarter than you, unless you are a world record holder.

    I really try not to get involved with topics I don't have experience with though. I would rather use advice from my own experience rather than quoting (or misquoting, lol) some internet author. Doing nothing but compound exercises for an extended period of time is something I do have experience with, and don't feel I am speaking out of line at all.

    1. Squat
    475x1
    405x5
    *easy. I was surprised

    2A. Bench Press
    315x5-4-3
    *quite a few assisted reps, I was just trying to kill myself

    2B. Chins
    80x5-4-3
    *crappy form

    3A. JM Press
    205x5-4-3

    Probably going to change up my routine soon, going back to doing squat/bench 2x week and deadlifting 1x week most likely.

    Weight is slowly going up. Can't wait until I hit 200ish, then I will post some new progress pictures and maybe put up some measurements.

    Did a little stat keeping this morning after work.

    Weight- 190 (before my post-work burritos)
    Legs- 25.25" (almost back to their biggest ever)
    Calves- 15.25"
    Arms- 15.75 (biggest I have ever measured them cold)
    Forearms- 13"

    I dunno. I am bored. I should get some sleep.

    I think personal experience is huge in this game. I've noticed a trend where many newer lifters who haven't accomplished much yet want to fall back on what so-and-so says or what study shows this, etc., where as many more advanced lifters rely on their own experiences through trial and error to form conclusions on what works. Look at that thread for instance; you can see the divide between the guys vehemently defending the program who go figure haven't really made it that far yet, versus those of us going off of experience who coincidently have more to show for ourselves. If there's anything I've learned from doing this over the years, it's that lifting is such an individualized activity; while many of the basic concepts will apply to everyone, there are so many different ways to skin a cat, and it's important to discover what works best for YOU. Those other guys seem to think one size fits all.



    Well, I can say that at least I've got you beat in the arms department... and well, that's about it. LOL

    That seems to be a common problem with a lot of people. They start a basic program and get some decent gains, then decide they know everything.

    The major problem starts when they think they know everything and that people that are bigger and stronger than them are doing it wrong; the only reason they are big and strong is because they are "easygainers" or have better genetics. The big/strong guys figured out what WORKS FOR THEM through experience. If I could go to the gym and do the arm bike for 15 minutes while watching TV, do some lunges, and still get really big and strong, I would. How you get to a goal is irrelevant. Yet a lot of people don't understand this concept and start complaining that big guys are using crap form or using some stupid split routine.

    Most of the guys defending SS on that thread were neither big or strong. I had to quit going on that thread for the sake of my sanity. People are going to do what they want to do I guess.



    Oh, and I am going to catch you on arms, someday. I am probably going to be over 200 pounds by then though haha.

    Think I got my new routine down. I am all over the place right now.

    Sunday- Rest
    Monday- Squat/Bench/Chins/accessories
    Tuesday- Rest
    Wednesday- Rest
    Thursday- Squat/Bench/Chins/accessories
    Friday- Rest
    Saturday- Ed Coan Deadlift Program


    Very similar to what I had laid out before. Gotta get my deadlift up, my goal is at least 275kg (606) at my meet in February (MN State Open). That will help my total a LOT.
