"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

A pic from yesterday 12 weeks into my power training .
Despite no change in diet I am a `little` tighter in certain areas , due I believe to the heavy compounds being more metabolically demanding .

Looks like you have a visible increase in pectoral muscles. I could be wrong but at least that what it looks like. Overall looking great T.

Looking lean and mean T. Can't argue with the results. You should seriously consider doing a BB show. Short veterans of course! ;)

Training 21/01/14

Deadlift . worked up to a strong 3 x3 with respectable poundage ( no belt ) , BUT starting to hit the area of getting close to a hard beltless effort.

To-date I haven't had to fight / struggle to complete my pulls or squats and this will be the test .... or I may perhaps continue with my present resistance in my routine and start increasing the poundage in the assistance work , thus perfecting form in the main lift and further strengthening the supporting musculature. ( or perhaps I am looking for excuses LOL )

Bulgarian Split squat / KB Sumo deadlift ( 3 cycles x 10 reps )

KB Shrugs / Leg raises ( toes to bar ) 3 cycles x 10 reps.

...

Food .

B`fast. 3 eggs , 3 streaky bacon , cheese omelette , 1 wholemeal toast , coffee.

Lunch . Tuna spinach salad with oil and cider vinegar

Evening meal. 1/4 Chicken ( with skin ) , veggies and red wine.

Supper Cheese n crackers , wine.

You should go for it! Training is going very well thanks: I'm in pretty good shape. I've also got into indoor rowing, having really focusing on it since June 2012. On March 2nd, I'll be racing in the English Indoor Rowing Championships. This will be my first 2k race, competing in the hwt 40 - 49 catagory.

Keep up the good work.

Training : 23/01/14

Bench press : worked up to 3 x5 reps , each set combined followed by pullups x 8 reps.
Pressing was good tonight , Im gradually getting into a groove in form ( set up ) , my grip is a little wider than Ive used previous and my mobility to-date is much better allowing me to get my feet under and use at least some leg drive , something which was always missing from my bench or only implemented when I was reminded to do so.

Incline power flye / KB rows ( 3 cycles x 12 reps )

Hammer curls / Lying floor D/b ext ( 3 cycles x 12 reps )

Band pull aparts 100 reps

...

Food .

B`fast . 4 eggs scrambled in butter , 1 wholemeal toast , coffee

Lunch . Tuna & ham salad with oil , cider vinegar and mayo.

Evening meal. Chinese style pork loins , fried chicken breast and egg with a glass of red wine.

Supper. Cottage cheese n cracker , glass of wine.

Saturday:

Squat : Worked up to 3 strong sets of 5 reps ( approx. 185kg ) , still no belt or wraps.
Felt like I am eventually hitting a groove in my form and altho still tentative in my approach my strength is increasing weekly. I guess being cautious is better than inviting complacency.

My form on a `powerlifting squat`:

That's a really good weight you are moving, keep up the good work.

Hey Turpin,
Can you tell me what these are:

Incline power flye...

Thank you!Ron


Turpin wrote:
The power flye is a hybrid of the dumbbell press/flye . Whereby the stretch position realises a more closed angle at the elbow ( akin to a press but a little more open )...
T.


An awesome exercise to take advantage of increased negative strength are Incline Press-Up/Fly Downs --- dumb name, but I don't know what else to call it.

I use a weight halfway between what I'd use for Presses or Flyes and Press it up, followed by a slow negative fly.

I keep the hands inward somewhat as Turpin described. When the fly negatives become less controllable, I may end with a few presses up and down.

KB clean & press ( 3 sets x 8 reps )

Drag curls / close grip bench press ( 3 cycles x 8 reps )

Well , I have decided to have a little change up in my workouts whilst still maintaining the `power` influence.
After weighing up the reward versus risk involved with persisting with the back squat and/or deadlift ( as my loads become increasingly heavier ) I've decided to return to the Belt squat as a safer alternative and use the Trap Bar deadlift in place of the regular deadlift whilst keeping the regular Bench press & OHP as is.

Previous cycles of the Belt squat realised me peaking at 500lb + for 8 reps , so I have something in mind to aim for. Ive already purchased a few more 50kg plates for my home gym in preparation.

LOL ... Its not easy , but the platform allows a deficit that accommodates the required depth.

I`ll post progressive videos up as/when I get the belt squat going.
