SSP Nutrition Raw Bench Challenge @ The Arnold

I know its been a while since my last post and over a week since the SSP Nutrition Raw Bench Challenge but I am still taking everything in that I experience last weekend. It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget. Leading up to the meet I was so nervous all week to the point I had a hard time sleeping, and surprisingly enough even eating like...

A week to regroup

After hitting it heavy and hard for the past 4 weeks I decided this week will be a lighter week. So that’s just what I did and I feel great. One thing I noticed from my video in the past few weeks and even at the last meet I did I was touching very low on my chest like if I was benching in a shirt. Ususally when I bench raw I tend to touch a big higher than my...

Pushing it to the Limit 12/30/14

Training has been going very well. I am satisfied with the progress I made so far but I think its time for a deload or week off next week. I am trying my hardest to push my body to the limit but avoid injury at the same time. I think I am at the point now where a week of very high reps next week will be huge chance for me to recover. So with that being said...

Tom Murray-Team Titan

After taking one week off from the American Open I was back at the gym last night. Even though I did not go to the gym I still had a very exciting week as far as powerlifting goes. Titan Support Systems is now my newest sponsor and I am beyond excited. This drives me to even a new level of determination and excitement to do my best at the SSP Nutrition Raw...

2013 USAPL American Open

Sorry I have not posted in quite sometime but my life has been so busy. For those of you who don’t know I am expecting a baby girl in March and I picked up a second job, also going to school and training for the USAPL American Open has really stretched me thin as far as time goes. But now I am back and want to fill everybody in on my experience at the USAPL...

USAPL Bench Nationals-Bombed!!!!!

So the 2013 USAPL Bench Nationals is in the books and almost 2 weeks old. I am now just starting to move on and come to terms that there is nothing I can do to change the results, but there are many things I can do to make sure the same thing does not happen to me again. I bombed out of my first meet ever, in my first meet ever in gear. During warm ups I felt...

705 to a 1 board

This week I felt pretty beat up and sore but I wanted to try going to a 1 board just to feel heavy weight. I got 675lbs to touch with a slight pause on Friday and wanted to see if I could go 700+ to a 1 board. Warm up: Raw 45×100 135×20 245×10 Working Sets w/shirt 445×2 hovered over chest no boards 535×1(1 board) 625×1(1 board)...

4 Weeks Out!!!

As the 2013 USAPL Bench Press Nationals came closer and closer and I am still having a hard time getting the groove of my shirt I decided to add another day of chest, so now I am doing chest and triceps on Monday and Friday. I finally got 545lbs to touch on Friday for a set of 2 and touched on both reps. Then I went to 605 with commands for 2 sets of 1 and...

Down to the wire

Getting down to crunch time! Only about 6 weeks until bench nationals and it is time for me to make a decision if I was going to compete or not. I have had a little trouble touching in my new Titan Super Katana, so I decided to switch back to my F6 to see if that would work any better. Come to find out the sleeves are way too big. So I decided to give the Super...

Super Katana or F6….That is the question!

The past few weeks have been pretty crazy for me both training and my personal life. I have been battling a very bad case of poison ivy the past week or so and really haven’t felt like doing much of anything. By the time I found out I had it, it had already pretty much covered my arms, hands, chest, and even my eyes. But thanks be to God it is going away and I...
