    Who Says Powerlifters Have to Be Fat! Bigben198s training log

    My name is Ben I'm 22 and I powerlift. I compete as a 198 or a 220. I've been training seriously for about 7-8 years now and competing on an international level for about 4, I have been sponsored by Universal Nutrition for over year and use exclusively their products. Shoulder injuries have been a constant annoyance for me an have hindered my bench so I usually depend more on my squat and dead to win shows but I'm working on it. I'm currently training to hit a 1840+ Raw total at 198. My last total was 1746 at 195. I live by the mantra that you don't have to be fat to be strong and I have massive respect for my bodybuilding brothers. I plan on keeping a training log here and uploading vids of my progress for just about every session. that's all I've got if you've got a question then ask it.

    11/25/11 awesome squat night for the bens

    Good to be home if only for a day.

    Squats
    (no belt)
    135x3
    225x3
    315x5
    365x4
    425x3x2
    485x3x5 (felt great finally)

    Bench
    (No feet)
    185x5
    225x4
    255x3x2
    290x3x6 (paused every final rep)

    Dips/leg raises
    10x3

    Squats
    (No belt oly stance)
    225x6
    315x6
    405x6

    back axtensions
    10x4

    called it good there, the whole workout went pretty quickly and the squats were finally as low as I wanted them to be, getting stronger every session. Hip was bugging me some but Part of that may have been the cold and being a little dehydrated. either way I'm happy with how the session went.

    I can't post the video here due to the 50 post rule but you can find it on youtube

    wow. strong raw lifts. I plan to be lifting big @ 198 one day (raw of course) so i'll sub in and follow your log.

    just wondering you said no belt, do you use a belt at all or just sometimes don't train with it? just wonderin'. I hates belts lol.

    theres some good logs on here, cool to see another big raw total log to follow.


    good luck on the quest for the 1840

    glad to have you along, as for the belt I am running a 6 week cycle with no belt for squats or deads and with my feet off the ground for benching. after the 6 weeks I will test my lifts with those stipulations and then add them back in for my next training block.

    how do you think no feet benching can benefit the comp bench? doesnt it throw you out of groove once you use leg drive again?

    good question, I've been getting this a lot lately. I'm sure it will throw me off for the first few weeks but I want to rework my leg drive anyway. In the past I have had issues with my leg drive kicking my butt off the bench while my upper body has been pretty weak. the plan is to get stronger through my upper chain and then reteach myself leg drive in a way that will not constantly pop my hips up. So far my upper body has gotten much stronger and I think in the long run this will be very beneficial

    Do you bench with your feet as far back/under you as possible?
    I don't care.

    I did for years, and then I switched to a flat footed settup, and once I put my feet back down I will play around with some different foot positions, Ideally I would like to press flat footed so that I wouldn't have to change anything depending on what federation I am lifting in

    1515 the YOU SUCK total!

    Training everything without a belt was beginning to cause some issues, mostly in my hips due to all the things I was having to do to hit depth and grind out of it without the belt for squatting, and getting my positioning all messed up for deads. Solution? listen to my body and start to take better care of myself i.e. use a belt. Still didn't want to go out without seeing what I could do one last time without, so I went in to do my workout but ended up testing my lifts instead, in a fashion that I would like to call the you suck total, Beltless squat and dead and no feet bench with tyler grips...

    Squats
    135x2
    225x3
    315x3
    405x1
    495x1
    535x1 (beltless PR called it good there)

    No feet bench w/tyler grips
    185x4
    225x4
    275x1
    295x1
    330xmiss (lost balance at top)
    325x1 (PR)

    Deads no belt
    225x2
    315x2
    405x2
    495x1
    585x1
    635x1
    655x1 (beltless PR)

    Managed to hit a PR on every lift despite feeling like absolute crap the whole time. hopefully will have better luck with my pain issues after adding the belt back in. Vid will be up next week

    lean back DB curls (leaned against a wall at an incline.. these suck)

    Machine laterals
    80x10x4

    off to finish finals, very quick session for me but I got a lot of work in for the time that I spent there.

    Some delayed onset soreness from mondays squats turned into some crotch cramping awfullness that really screwed me up for pulls, I'm sure the lack of sleep, food, and relaxing from finals week played a significant role as well... ugh

    Close grip Bench

    185x5
    225x4
    255x3x2
    295x3x5 (tendonites was not feeling great)

    Deads
    135x3
    225x3
    315x3
    405x2
    495x2
    add belt
    585x2
    625x2x2 (couldn't pull anything fast because I was scared of tearing something, and my position was thrown off by slowing everything down and being tight everywhere, called it a day and went home to write another friggin paper and stretch for 3 hours)

    UUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHH I HATE FINALS!

    This has been the absolute most ridiculous finals week of my life, something like 8 papers, 4 in class finals, 1 video final, 3 big performance finals, 2 auditions, 2 big projects, Work meetings, resident checkouts, and still trying to find time in the gym and eat.... sleeping didn't happen much, but I am done now! and ready to get back home soon I'll be home sunday night and will be getting to work catching up on all my videos from this last week of craziness... the relief of being done is incredible ahhhhhhh....

    Continuing to catch up
    I missed squatting in my belt so much that I didn't even know it until it was back! this session went even better than Mondays did even surprised myself.

    Close grip Bench
    185x5
    225x4
    255x3x2
    295x3x5 (every set got better)

    Squats
    135x3
    225x3
    315x4
    365x4
    425x3x2
    485x3x3
    515x5 (pretty sure that's a PR for legit squats without wraps)

    Bench
    205x5
    225x5
    255x4x5

    Cable flyes
    10x4

    Super stoked to finally hit a real PR again on squats the last rep was a gut buster but I earned it. Now back home to rest and enjoy the holidays

    todays session was fast and solid, really digging on the 5/3/1 sets for my shoulder day and I can definitely say that I'm getting stronger as a result.

    Standing military press
    95x5x2
    115x5
    135x5
    150x5
    170x6 (got a ground out 5 last time and these 6 were much smoother)
    125x10x5 (5 more lbs than last week and still went unbroken booyah!

    seated laterals
    25x10x4

    Plate raises
    45x10x4

    Single arm DB Curl to press 40x8x3

    BB curl
    45x10
    65x10
    85x10x2

    Called it good there, honestly the shoulder presses would be a good workout on their own, those sets of 10 are brutal, Hats off to you BBrs who live in that 8-12 range I salute you!

    Drugged out deadlifting!
    been having some weird pain in my right leg since saturday morning. not the muscle but the skin, It is like an invisible rash that doesn't itch but feels like I have a lot of little cuts and scratches all over and it sucks, been waking me up at night so I haven't been getting good rest and when I am awake it constantly hurts. Kind of freaked me out so I went to my Dr. this morning and got it checked out, he said that he wasn't sure what it is but strongly suspects some sort of allergic reaction. He prescribed me this antihistamine called Zyrtec. Now one of the side effects of any antihistamine is drowsiness, now anyone who knows me knows that I don't like to make excuses especially when it concerns lifting so I waited until the drowsiness wore off enough that I could safely drive to the gym for deadlifts... possibly not my greatest idea haha

    Deads
    135x3
    225x3
    315x3
    405x3
    495x3x2
    add belt
    585x3x5 (these were much harder than they should have been mostly because I was border line falling asleep in between sets made for an interesting workout dynamic)

    Close grip Bench
    185x5
    225x5
    255x4
    275x3x2
    295x2x3 (paused every rep)
    275x3x2
    255x4
    235x5
    225x10

    DB Flyes
    10x5

    Called it good there I was getting straight up loopy by the end of the session. I didn't even think to film any of the session I was just focused on staying awake the whole time. I hope this pain clears up soon so I don't end up having any more of these goofed up sessions

    You are 17 lbs away from having a world record deadlift in the 198, and have the 6th highest total of a 198.

    Are you a wizard?

    @ Kevin Alvaerz123-haha you sound impressed, woohoo I must be doing something right!
    Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man given. Be grateful. Conceit is self given. Be careful.
