Nice training, Brother.

Is your training based around multiple sets of triples w/a goal weight each week?

Kind of. I'm training for pre meet for the end of March and right now I'm in the phase of heavy triples. When I do heavy triples, I don't take my sets over 90% of my E1RM and for this squat workout 90% of my E1RM was 390. So I reach that point just under 390 and I work from my own feel on how much I do once I reach that point. Taking the previous sets into account as well, I don't want to go to a terrible strain or failure but I make myself work for that last set. On my second set of 385 I felt form break down very slightly and a pretty good strain so I finished at that.

Been ignoring this thing a little too long and been crazy busy with school. I've still been training on my time off the forums with pre-meet training. Wrapped up a midterm today so I figured I'd post today's training. 2 weeks out from the meet in Springfield, MO. My training is down to singles and getting dialed in.

Bench (with pauses)- Took my time warming up. Multiple sets of 3 for 135-200lb) Working Sets- 225x1, 245x1, 265x1, 285x1, 295x1, 315x1, 325x1 for 10 pound training PR, 22 pounds over my last meet.

3-8-13

Squats- Sleeves- 365x1, 385x1, 405x1, wraps- 425x1, failed 445 pretty bad. We'll call this a bad squat day... Nothing felt right about wrapping the knees so I decided to just stick with sleeves.

Little ab work.

3-11-13

Deadlift- 405x1, 445x1, 475x1, 490x1 Training PR

3-16-13

Bench- 225x2, 245x1, 275x1, 295x1, 305x1

No squat day at the end of this week. I got food poisoning or something so that put me down Thursday and Friday. One week out of the Springfield meet now so it's all recovery work from here.

Thanks George. I'll check it out.

Arrived at Springfield and got weighed in all fine. Weighed in a little light at 208. I guess I didn't eat enough but still feel fine and still feel strong. Openers are 403 Squat, 281 Bench, 474 Deadlift. Going out to eat now. I need some quality sustenance.

Due to my training being extremely lackluster, I decided I need to resurrect my training log here.

Had my first training at the University of Central Missouri yesterday. Moving from my garage back to a gym setting kind of made me realize how much I didn't miss some of the egos that go along with it, but I was there to do my own thing. It was extremely valuable to be able to use some of the machines that I haven't been able to use in over a year.

I have a friend who is an aspiring body builder and one day he asked me for a leg workout. I threw one together quickly but it made him walk like a 90 year old man out of the gym and struck him with a nice soreness for a couple days. I promised him I would do the workout too, once I obtained access to the necessary equipment. That being said:

Squat- 4x5- 315, 335, 345, 365x3 (this disappointed me but I'll get used to lifting heavy there)(substituted for his 3x8 front squats)
RDL- 3x10- light
Leg extensions- 4x12
Leg curl- 4x12
Calf raises- 4x10- 2 regular sets, 1 toes in, 1 out
Lunge walks- 3x8 (substituted for his single leg squat; i didn't have a bench/platform to put back leg on)

This was a killer of a workout. Made it rather difficult to get back up the stairs and out of the rec center once i was finished. It was good for a change
