As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

SQUATS:
2x1 @ 405lbs

SPEED SQUATS:
2x10 @ 300lbs

FRONT SQUATS:
3x3 @ 225lbs

BAND PULL-THRUS:
10x3 @ Blue Band

ABS

Today was great.  I hit 405 for a double with no belt, which is a new PR for me.  Front Squats were a little uncomfortable with the clean-grip, so I'll just keep adding sets and reps until I get to 5x5 and then up the weight again.

Me like video! And the weight... considering you nailed 505 lbs for the last full meet in September... strong stuff no belt and all! I guess the squat will wear you out a bit, but with about 8 weeks left until the meet you have plenty of time to grow even stronger... About how much did you pull pre-meet in September?

Extremely strong lifting. Smiley

Thanks Kris.  I'm not sure what I was pulling before that meet.  I have a hard time staying true to any one program  Grin , which is something I need to stop doing and be more consistent in my routines.  I have pulled 535 a while before the Sept. meet, with a belt, but that was way before.  After the meet I hit 550.  So for the March meet I'm shooting for 600, we'll see.

The squat is something I've always had trouble increasing in.  I'm not sure if it's a form issue, strength issue, stance width issue.....  I do think it is slowly getting better.  I think maybe only doing the squat once a week may help, as in the past I have been doing routines that hit the squat 2+ times a week.

For this upcoming meet though, I'm just wanting to break my previous weights, so that's my goal  Smiley

SQUATS:
2x1 @ 430lbs

SPEED SQUATS:
2x5 @ 355lbs

ABS


Short session today.  Have some homework I have to finish before tomorrow and I'll probably be up late as it is.  I may be changing some things around on this Squat day.  The first being dropping the weight on speed squats and maybe adding bands in for a couple week here and there.

DEADLIFTS:
2x1 @ 540lbs

SPEED DEADS:
2x5 @ 455lbs

PULL-UPS:
5x5 @ Bw

ABS

Went pretty heavy on the abs.  The 2 reps @ 540 was done with a belt, but the 455 ones were done without a belt.

I'm not sure about the speed deads on this program.  My speed is really not that fast.  I think I start off pretty fast but by the time I'm on the 3 or 4 set I'm just trying to complete the remaining sets.  Not sure if Coan just means do them as fast as you can or what, might have to see if I can find anything on that.

Did cut this session short.  Been really swamped with homework this first couple weeks back, I can't what until I"m done.

Do you do the overhead press paused?

Currently, I am also doing incline bench paused. I can't say if that adds anything but it feels a lot harder.

Yes, I do have a slight pause at the top of my chest.  Definitely makes it a lot harder.
