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...

11 weeks until Bench Nationals

So Monday was my 5th time training in my Titan Super Katana and each week I am getting more comfortable. I can easily say that Monday was my best workout out of the 4 previous. I felt the pressure of the shirt and held more weight in my hands than I ever felt before. Needless to say it was quite a rush. Warm ups (all raw) 45×40 135×25 185×10...

FINALLY, ITS ALL COMING TOGETHER

After 3 very frustrating weeks or training in my new Super Katana I am finally starting to put things together thanks to everybody that is being patient and helping me along. So here goes my 4th workout and by far the best of all. Warm ups(all raw) 135×40 185×12 225×10 275×5 315×3 365×3 405×1 With my shirt on all sets to a 3...

Chest Training May 20, 2013

My training is coming along pretty good. I still have so much learn when it comes to single ply benching but considering it is only third time in a shirt I will take my progress. This week I worked down to a 2 board and was doing sets of 2 reps instead of singles. Here is what my workout looked like: Raw work up to 405 405×2(4 board) 405×2(3 board)...

No training for me this week

This week was not a very good week for me as far as training goes. I took the whole week off and did not lift at all. About 2 weeks ago I started getting pretty severe lower back pain and on Monday I came down with a head cold. So all week I felt like crap and one thing I know about my body is it does not respond well when I train while I am sick. I think I...

Leg and Back Day

A lot of bench only guys get the rep that they don’t work on legs and are only focused on chest. But in most cases that is not true. The reason I do not do full meets is because my knees are shot from playing football in high school and college and I had a serious neck injury a few years ago also from football, but I still work on my legs. I do not squat real...

Shirt Training week 2

This is my second week in my Super Katana and I am satisfied with the way things are going so far. I am still in the process of loosing up the shirt; it still does not even go above my elbows. It is like right there but not quite above, still about an inch and a half better than last week. And also got good news as far as my raw strength, I did my warm ups raw...

Super Katana Debut

The day finally came when I felt healed enough to throw my shirt on and start this journey towards USAPL Bench Nationals in August. If things go as planned this will be my first meet in single ply. I have only done raw before. I did a few warm up sets: 135×20 135×20 185×10 185×10 225×5 275×5 315×3 365×1 to a 2 board....

Dilemma….HELP!!!

For the last few weeks I have been training to rehab my shoulder so I can get back to what I love, lifting weights. When I started this whole rehab process I set a goal that when I can bench 315lbs comfortable for a few reps I would make the jump from raw to single ply. Rehab was going great I was doing less weight and more reps and I really felt this helping...

3 Hour Workout?!?!?

Do you consider the time at the gym social hour or time to get stronger? I always considered the time I spend at the gym as a time to get the most possible gains in size and strength. Well over the past year or so I have noticed a trend, I think people use the gym as social hour. And there is nothing wrong with that if that is what they want to do but me...
