Drop a couple of pounds? Don’t sweat it just chill…..

Well by now some people, if they were to room with me for a meet, would pass. Unless they like sleeping in winter clothes they are not going to be happy with me as a roomie. Why is that? Well I am going to get to the point but first…. I would say probably over 90 ,hell maybe even 95%, of athletes who have to drop a few pounds before a meet (night before) or...

Doubles for Worlds

Well it is about time I got back to writing. I have been busy with birthdays, meet in San Antonio, college with one son, building a website, and getting ready for this upcoming meet. Anyways to the training. This article compromises of all 3 lifts that are doubles before doing next week’s openers. However since I just did a bench meet 3 weeks ago I backed off...

If complacency breeds stagnancy, then being uncontested spawns mediocrity.(well almost.Bench nats wrap up)

Well it’s over and what a scare. I am going to segway a little here and then get back to the wrap up so bear with me. I had a big week of the meet where I moved my first son into college which is a life altering experience knowing he is his own man and not having dad around for guidance. My mind was on this for the whole week and I could feel the meet was a far...

Danger Will Robinson Danger!!! August 10 bench….

If I had the robot from the 60’s TV show “Lost in Space” this is what he would be saying and best summed up the workout. It was downright awful. If I had to find a silver lining it would be I didn’t flat out miss any of the attempts or sets. The weight felt heavy and moved sloppy. When you are competing at a national world level I EXPECT to perform like that...

Third workout done……620 partial and a 590 full rep!!!

Third bench workout is done. Again a great workout by hitting a 2 board pr (NOTE this means nothing in the midst of training outside of being a pr, a gain. This is a full rep meet so that is what is important). Yes I used the same opening sentences as previous log but that is good when it is all positive!!!! Also some people may have missed last log so this is...

E=mc2

E=mc2 (E)volving = (m)aking (c)hanges (2)multiple times Evolving -develop gradually, especially from a simple to a more complex form. “It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.” Charles Darwin Evolving (I mean mentally and emotionally)is what makes us who we are today. To get where we want we NEED to...

Week 2 off to a great start with 610 being handled…….

Second bench workout is done. Again a great workout by hitting a 2 board pr (NOTE this means nothing in the midst of training outside of being a pr, a gain. This is a full rep meet so that is what is important). I am using the 2014 Bench Worlds and 2013 Bench Nats as templates on what numbers to use. I am upping the high end sets by 5-15 pounds from the...

First workout for bench nats and some behind the neck presses video….

Well it is on. I have started it up for bench nationals August 22. This week is the first week I get into gear. I have not posted the last 2 weeks due to being with baseball and graduations. I ,however have not skipped a beat in training. I have 2 workouts under my belt being both raw for reps of 5 previous to this workout. Soon the squat and dead will be...

June 8 week

Ok this week the camber bar will be a secondary movement. I was curious how the bench with a regular bar would go and I was not disappointed. In 2 ½ weeks I will be starting to bench for bench nationals so I am down to one more bench workout after this. I already have framed out my schedule for bench nats and 3 lift Worlds in September so this is not a thrown...

June 1 last camber bench and not a great one……

Ok it has been a busy couple of weeks with one son graduating high school and the other son with never ending baseball (yes I hate baseball). So I am behind on my log BUT I have not missed any workouts. I have three more bench workouts after this week before I start my contest cycle (for bench nationals in August) where MORE rest is installed into the regimen!!...
