New training program for the Arnold Ohio Classic

So because I have the iron bug and a sickness for the sport of power lifting, I have already begun to plan out my training for my return to the Arnold stage. I actually started planning the night after the Ohio State Championship. I was so hyped up after this meet that my mind would not shut off all night. I could not sleep, I just continued to think about what...

Nov 6, 2013

Ok so it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. I have been busy trying to get more clients, fixing my training, looking for places to do my shirts for the best price ( going to have them within 2 weeks). Overall training leading up to this first week has  been horrible for squat and DL. I couldn’t move weights I would normally be able to...

DUUUHHHHH! Why didn’t I think of this sooner.

So this week I was Deadlifting and my back decided to tweak out on me. I had 545 half way up and I felt that pain we have all felt before. I immediately dropped it and started to stretch. It wasn’t that bad, just didn’t want to lift on it after that. I was hoping for 570x 3 on squat a few days later but my back said ” Go F^&K...

Starting to feel stronger!

Pre Arnold Training

September 9th I started my new Bench day leading up to the Arnold.  I’m transitioning pretty easy with bench, so that’s good. I hit the heaviest weights that I have since Raw Nationals. Here is how it went. BENCH 335×2 365×2 385×2 * Paused last rep. Pretty happy with this RVB BENCH 405X2 425X2 * All sets paused DB BENCH 100X10 100X10...

Fried chicken legs!!

So it’s been a few weeks and I have been doing light work. I mean really light work. If you remember the plane ride screwed up my back and when I got done with Nationals I was in some real pain. I got home the next day and it just got worse. I just figured it was from a combo of the plane ride there and lifting with my back like that and already hurting...

3 weeks out from the Arnold

So I was doing a little running 2 weeks ago, and I decided to kick it in on my last sprint. As soon as I kicked it in, I felt my hamstring pop. There was instant pain, shock, disbelief, and terror when I felt it. I immediately thought that I was not going to be able to lift at the Arnold. I gave myself about 10 minutes to sulk about it, and then started...

Arnold Classic Training Begins

So, as you may know, I decided to take a month off from bench pressing.  My shoulders have been going through hell for a while. That month is over.  Training has resumed.  Last week I pressed some very light weights with some discomfort, but nothing like it was before. I have a solid plan to relieve the pain in the shoulders (bicep tendon insertion area).  It...
