rest up and prep for a good pull day.. it's time to take 550 or 585 for a ride! If you're like me..and I get the idea that you are. It'll feel like you were born again picking up something like that! HAHA

That's the plan man!!!

i'm going to go light this week on deadlifts because i missed last weeks workout, but NEXT week i will pull 545.

i always feel fantastic after a new PR, even though i've pulled these numbers many times in the past, i've never pulled over 535 drug free. so this will actually be a new PR for me in a special way.

Thanks Rip!

I have to do cardio or i'll be 250+ very quickly because i eat so much! I actually enjoy cardio most of the time.

I'm lucky my knee has not given me one issue since surgery...

seriously? no more than 535 drug free? That'll be a milestone for sure! I knwo you're good for 600 easily when you're feeling more squirrely drugs or not!

Yup, back in 2001.

535 at 198 pounds and natural.

I had only been doing power training for 8 months...lol

It was my first power lifting competition ever, shortly after i turned to the darkside!

I feel very strong and i believe a 600+ pull will be possible in the next 6 months to a year.

depending on how far you "give into" 545... 600 might still be doable sooner than that.

I missed last weeks back session so i took it easy and decided to do triples instead of singles. next week i want to pull 545. i did a smooth triple with 495 and if i would have had more gas in the tank i was going to pull more, but i was exhausted after the 495 triple.

everything else stayed the same and i'm still very sore today, 3 days later...lol

If things stay on track, i will yank 585 soon... Smiley

Felt a slight tweek in my right elbow after incline, this isn't anything new, but i just like to keep track of these things.

niiice dude. what's your pull setup, man?

Form or routine?

I pull conventional, i've never felt good pulling sumo.

My routine is just to alternate heavy and speed days every other week.

Speed day is sets of 3-5reps.

Heavy day is all singles...ME day.

Calories - 3500 Approx. - Moderate carb day

Cardio - Swimming for 45 minutes

Weight - 231

Legs felt good this session, lots of strength out of the hole, but the last 2 sets were killer, i struggled to get the last rep on both sets. i'm still progressing very quickly, so we will see what happens.

Added good mornings to the mix, i haven't done these in forever, i remember doing these with 405 back in my prime...lol...i can't imagine doing that right now, 225 felt light and the reps were very deep and smooth. i might add weight to these in a few weeks, right now i just want to get my body used to doing them again.

In case no body noticed, i'm slowly moving towards a more "power lifting" style protocol. by the end of the year i'll probably be doing DE and ME days for bench, squat, dead and go back to my westside protocol...we shall see, things are going good right now and i enjoy the body building style workouts.

Knee is 110%

I went 5 pounds lighter on close grips this week due to feeling out of it today. i did smooth reps but they were tough! for some reason i felt like shit all day, but still managed to get in a decent workout.

C&P was a struggle today, just didn't have any tricep strength left and i stalled out near the top with 285. i might back off these for a few weeks.

Added BB shrugs back into the mix, felt good. no grip training.

Another day feeling like ass, i had a head cold the whole weekend. i decided to take friday off to recover but it didn't help much.

I was planning on pulling 495x5 without a belt, just to get ready for some heavier pulling next week. 3 reps was all i could do today, no big deal.

Everything else went ok, i still want to pull 545 next week!

not Alex but you seem to have a million and one reasons for not posting a picture of yourself, what gives? no one expects you to look like Jay Cutler but at least prove you look like you train.
