…Intensity is defined as “exceptionally great concentration, power, or force”…
…Insanity is defined as “the state of being seriously mentally ill; madness”…
...I. PRACTICE. BOTH...

The reason I'm making this journal along with my log in the contest prep section is because although I am mainly a bodybuilder, I plan on competing in my 1st powerlifting meet this offseason...in the past I never took strength training seriously until 4 months ago when I began this offseason...I hope to learn as much as I can from fellow powerlifters in this section and would like as much input as possible!
4 months ago lifts:
Squat: 225 x 8
Bench: 95 x 12
Deadlift: 185 x 12
Squat: 405 x 1
Bench: 225 x 1
Deadlift: 405 x 1
*These were done on a normal power day during my modified PHAT routine. Hit squats and deads in the same workout
...my training gameplan and what I have found TREMENDOUS results in this offseason is cycling between a power and hypertrophy based program (PHAT) and a more of a strength and hypertrophy based program (sheiko, etc.)...
...I run my cycles in around 4-6 weeks periods...my body has responded perfectly and I plan on continuing this...
So far this offseason has consisted of:
5 weeks of PHAT
4 weeks of Sheiko #29 (numbers were 315 squat / 205 bench / 340 deadlift)
4 weeks of PHAT - Back focused (just finished up 4th week)
...and next I plan on running Sheiko #37
...As i just finished up my 2nd cycle of PHAT, I will be taking a few rest days before starting sheiko #37...still need to set my numbers for this program as the 405 squat was hard, the 225 bench wasnt too bad, and the 405 deadlift wasnt too bad especially considering it was done about 6 exercises into my workout....
OK...enough talking...here's my picture at 190ish lbs as of yesterday...
...I train with intensity as the number #1 goal...I ALWAYS PUSH MY LIMITS AND SET PRS...every workout...everyday...in and out of the gym...prepare to follow some insane workouts...
