So this week I pretty much screwed up my training by letting my ego get in the way and not follow programming protocol. Days one and two are suppose to be medium intensity which for the past several weeks (even after being told) I get caught up and go too heavy. This caused me to...

Today started the first day of our Isometric Mesocycle. This means we will be doing a lot of holds and presses/pulls into pins. Today was brutal and I was sore before I even made it back to the house. I need to step my recovery up to gain the most out of this schedule. Cambered...

This was the last day in our eccentric mesocycle. This whole past week was the highest intensity used during this cycle, that resulted in people being helped up from the hole after their 5 SECOND decent’s and struggling more on the high 90%+ days as you will see in my training video today during Floor...

Last week deadlifts beat me up pretty bad as I attempted to pull 565, it took 9 seconds to lock it out. I came back this week and was able to knock it out 4×1 so in on the right track. Front squats went well, I got psyched out on 2 attempts dropping one and...

Awesome training day! After chilling at the front desk for 4 hrs cleaning the gym and helping clients I was ready to rock. This enthusiasm was generated by the pre planned training time that 80% of the powerlifting team committed to for my sake, because I had to work the morning. It felt like the...

I felt great today because I actually ate a meal including all macronutrients 1.5 hours before training, amazing what nutrition does! You will all enjoy watching me struggle during deadlifts today. I get a lot of comments saying I make it look easy when I deadlift, well you will see a 9 second deadlift in...

First time benching in…. Almost 2 months. No pain, no soreness, no stiffness. This is why I swear by GPP and the programming by David. He knows what works and what keeps lifters healthy and in the game. Having massage and PT on staff also helps. Incline Close Grip Bench 3×2 (5 second negative) –...
