“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Robert Frost   “The hour glass of aging can’t be stopped but we can slow it down.” Me. This is not a new article from me but one that has summed up the time I’ve spent since my last article. I have reconstructed my squat , rebuilt my shoulder...

First two workouts for bench nats done and can only say, meh.

Well since my last article I have started training but bench nationals in USAPL on Aug 28 and things couldn’t start off worse. First my father died a week before first workout and even though I thought I contained my emotions and tried not to think about it impacting me on my first workout(June 29) I was wrong, terribly. I started the routine by trying...

Applying some training advice from Robert Frost…

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Robert Frost   “The hour glass of aging can’t be stopped but we can slow it down.”   Me. I remember this quote from school (not mine) and try to refer to it when I question a decision to be made in my life. I can tell you one thing, my decisions...

June offseason training

Holy Sh&t! I am posting a workout? Well not quite but… It has been months since my last training update so let me put the last few weeks into one article. I have only six weeks from nationals (I had competed in May) to training for bench nationals. So it is the normal heal up and/or get the secondary muscles stronger, which at 44 they maybe at their...

Latest bench training and upper body…..

Well another week down. This week is the last week I go with weight as heavy as I did this workout. I have 3 workouts left before Worlds and so far so good. This workout was the first full rep with the new shirt and was, beh. Before I get into this past week’s workout I just want to note this is training video. My ass coming up is not a concern because the...

Bench log….Handling over 6

Well I have been quite busy but wanted to post my log of my bench workouts for my upcoming bench world meet April 18. Training has going great. I am breaking in a new shirt and things look optimistic. My offseason raw training was at its best hitting a 405 for 3 reps. I am hoping this carries over into gear. My other upper body training is also doing well but...

Marco….Marco…..Marco?

Polo!! Well where have I been? Since worlds in September I have backed off writing articles to focus on a side venture (no ghost hunting is not it, even I like doing it.) It is nearly complete. However I may have disappeared from Iron Authority but I didn’t stop training. I actually focused hard on my raw training. I changed things slightly up this time around....

Some direct and indirect suggestions for a bigger bench…

Well I haven’t written for a long time. I have been busy with a hopefully creating a successful venture and dealing with life including a personal scare for my own health. However in the midst of all the fore mentioned I have still been training. I am learning that it is CRITICAL to listen to your body and not ignore aches, pains or irregularities. Well since...

World Wrap up

It is over and I am pleased. Training was great and the meet was ALMOST my best ever. I had a game plan all the way down to what I wanted to weigh when I woke up. I arrived Tuesday and had had 3 days to adjust to the time differential. I had plenty of rest and the food was good, almost too good. Considering the food was high in salt I did pay attention to what...

Openers for Czech

Well the training is done and I am happy with the overall outcome. My lower back feels like it did 3 years ago. My dead in the last 3 years has dropped at one point 65 pounds!!! I believe I had a pinched nerve in my lower spine. What changed this after 3 years? Training, no. Rest, no. Chiropractor, no. What was it? Methylpredisolone. I had poison ivy going into...
