Thanks itlives. Still looking for 250 overhead (Clean & push press), 500+ deadlift, by the time I leave college... I've got about a year and a half. DL hopefully won't take quite that long to achieve.

New PRs for the first third (roughly) of 2013.

Roundback romanian deadlift 265x10
Full range one arm pullup with right arm
4'' deficit deadlift 375x1
Leg press PR that I can't be bothered to measure, but it's considerable: ~50lb or so.

Like a lifetime PR here. :eyebrows:
No specific training, at 5am, after a sleepless night, no warmup.

Sorry about the weird angle on the vid, I had to lay my camera down sideways....

Thanks alex!

Something for you to keep in mind for your own one-arm training. After not doing much if any specific work for some time, my ability to control the eccentric has gone down, mainly in terms of specific arm strength. However, I've made gains just from becoming stronger overall, and can now do more with the concentric than I could do before....

New PR on 5/13: stacked kb press 51.6+10 for 5/5. Either +2 reps or +5lb, something like that. Puts my projected one arm press (kettlebell) at 36kg which isn't bad at all. I can definitely hit 24kg+16kg stacked by the end of the summer, which would be quite good at <150lb bodyweight.

Thanks guys!

TMK--state record was 405. I smashed that--unofficially, of course, because it was set in a full meet and I did deadlift-only (it's the rules in that federation). Of course, the guy who did the 405 was a solid 148 and like 5'5'' so I suppose it evens out even if he squatted and benched beforehand.

IPA international record at 148 (junior, drug free) is 529. Non-drug tested open age 148 record is 573.

World records regardless of federation is 694, drug tested record is 690 done by the same guy.

I plan on doing the tactical strength challenge in early October, which includes a max deadlift, and I'm aiming for 440. After that, I'll try to get to 500 as quickly as possible.
My goal for next year is to hit low to mid 500s at 165. My deadlift goes up pretty fast when I can actually gain weight successfully.

Good lift Jman!

Hawthorne has done 600 fairly easily in a full meet at 128. He's also done 610x4 touch and go with a suit at 132. Lamar gant still holds the official records in those weight categories, though.
Of course, both of them are like 5'0'' with shoes on ;)

Current record at 165, which is where I'm going, is 716. It was just set last year by vashon perryman--he's a super beast, freaky strong at both squat and deadlift.


He's young, too, I have no doubt that he'll push the 165 raw record up to 750 before moving up to 181.

I'm at the point now where I'm going to start getting actually serious about my training, not just doing it for fun when I'm in the mood. As far as lifetime goals go, I know that a 700lb deadlift is possible for someone my height, raw and drug free, at 165 or so. Bob peoples and bruce white have both done it.

Tried something new today, jefferson lifts. Only really done them once before and that was with like 185 or so.



Fun lift. I think I could get over 400 pretty quickly, as this was done on a whim, with no specific warmup, after today's other heavy pulls.

Guys with long legs (Matt, Dave) do *not* try unless you're willing to use quite a bit of back flexion.

Nice! It IS a fun lift, I used to do them occasionally but my back didn't like the slight twist involved. As strong as your back is though you shouldn't have a problem with that.

I've done it a few times myself. I once worked up to 315 x 3/3, back when my DL max was still below 365 I think. It felt great at the time. It got me a lot of stares at the college gym though...

Some new things:

Completely stiffleg deadlift 355 with no warmup (anywhere, anytime, 2.5x bodyweight deadlift just with pure low back power. Very proud of this one!)

Bodyweight pistols x50 each leg in one set, switching legs each rep

And I -think- I can strict press my own weight for reps, for the first time. Gonna try soon... it'll be close, that's for sure! Been stuck at 1x bwt. x1 for far too long.

Thanks guys. No standing presses fatman? What's wrong with you? :mrgreen:

Seems that my ambition of a bodyweight strict press for reps was short-lived, a recent cycle brought my very strict press up to 135x2x2 at a bodyweight of ~140 (maybe a hair less) but my shoulder's begun bothering me again. I've mentioned this before, but my left shoulder is noticeably below and behind my right (partly congenital, partly postural. I also think the muscles might be attached in a different place or something). It's frustrating having so many limitations to work around, but I've been doing it for long enough now that I just have to buckle down and find another way forwards... if standing presses are now 'out' (as well as weighted dips and just about any bench variant), looks like it's time to break out the one arm presses again, and maybe some pushups and stuff. I can definitely see all my pressing work becoming more for health and balance than anything else, at some point in time... oh well.

It's a consolation (and illustrates what I just wrote) that I finally hit a one arm chin PR tonight. 2 full, strict reps from dead hang with my right arm. Also did a full one arm pullup, and got about 2/3 of the way up on a second rep.
On my left arm, managed a single OAC and most of a single OAPullup, also strictly, from a dead hang.

I have to admit that my preference these days is for seated BTN presses.

I know that in certain circles the belief about BTN pressing is "don't do that, you'll go blind". But they seem to help my bench press a lot.

I definitely believe in the usefulness of BTN presses. Wish I were better at them because the groove feels really good. Apparently some of the big benchers swore by them; didn't ted arcidi say he could've BTN pressed the same amount he benched, or something like that? And I know Paul Carter likes them, too.

Aris, I used to get a nagging left shoulder from OHPing, but then I switched to snatch grip presses and push presses for the most part. They have never tweaked my shoulder. Could be worth looking into for you?

Arcidi hit a BTN in the high 300s or low 400s, so not close to his bench press but pretty high. Many among the old-time guys could BTN press insane weights, and I think one or two guys even hit 500+.

I only do them because they help my bench press, to be honest. Also I like to do reps more than singles and doubles: up to 10-reps for light standing BTNs, then 8 and 5 for heavier seated presses, maybe a triple (but not too heavy) once in a long while. They beat up my wrists far less than standing presses (weak 6.5 inch wrists :P ).

Yeah, he was well short of his best bench; but I thought he said something like, if he'd specialized on BTNs he could've equalled his bench PR or something crazy like that.

I think they're probably great for shoulder health/flexibility for bench specialists. They've always felt awkward to me unless starting from the top, and even then... probably cause my shoulder flexibility isn't great.
And I feel your pain with the small wrists, mine are like 6.25 or something.

Dave, I'm terrible at push presses. And I like snatch grip presses and muscle snatches but the weights have to be very light (same with btns) so I'm not a fan. I tried power jerks today (more like a push press with a 'catch', I'm only dipping under the bar like an inch or two) and they felt good... not a 'press' but it's another fun way to get weight overhead so I might keep them in the mix.

Updated for new PRs....

had a lot of school work recently so training's been somewhat derailed.

Tried jerks (power jerks, from the rack) the other day and liked them. 1.5x bodyweight is the short term goal on these, and after that I may keep them in the rotation... or not.

You and your links and some of the other's replies have pushed me over the edge - I think I'm going to make a concerted effort to do some deadlifting. My body seems to be more or less in 1 piece so I'll try to remember to take it at a snail's pace.

Congrats on those OAP's and C's, a true feat of bodyweight mastery.

Thanks Greek. I think you definitely should, benefits for everyone! If you put up a few vids, I'd love to help/advise in any way possible.

Late night PRs with minimal warmup are the best kind, hands down.

'Tactical'* pullup +48kg x1
Pistol + ~73lb x1, right leg only :(

*RKC/SF accepted form. Start from dead hang with locked elbows, pull up and pause with throat touching bar (so pretty strict). Pretty sure I've been able to do this a while, but good to get confirmation.

Very happy with the pistol, I lost my balance coming up but still ground it out. Crushed me on the left, though, gotta groove that more. It's less a leg strength issue than a hip alignment issue.

...Also did a chinup + 127lb with VERY strict form.
I weighed 139.4.

The best part? I had a bit more. I want + bodyweight when I go back to school... then maybe (just maybe) I can bring myself to rest on my laurels and focus on weaknesses a bit during the Spring term.

That's some pretty sick pulling.

My best on this was BW + 35 kilos (77 lbs.) for a single. A mere 50 lbs. less than you  :laugh2:

Just wanted to add...

I'd love to see you keep your training log updated.

Think of a Rocky movie.

Imagine skipping all the training scenes and plot twists leading up to the fight, and just seeing the final knockout punch.

Doesn't have the same effect without witnessing all the struggle.   ;)

But either way, congrats.

Seconded. Or, if not the one here, then some training log.

Thanks guys. Fatman--I'm sure you outweighed me by at least 50lb at that point though, so that's something....

And I haven't updated my log because I haven't been doing much planned training. Last term was fairly rough; made some decent progress with my DL but that was it (did a lot of high frequency stuff there).

The chin/pistol PRs are really just due to finally getting some solid sleep and destressing a bit after the end of the term. Training hard and regularly under pretty adverse conditions results on PRs 'on a whim' when things are a bit better, it seems.

I'll definitely start updating regularly if I start actually training regularly, keeps me accountable and getting feedback is always good!
