Bench day
I had a less than stellar day today. It was my own fault. I didnt have the mind set i usually have going in the gym. Went to bed around 1 AM and just felt dehydrated today. I could feel it big time during the 5x10 portion of the workout. Also during the warmup up today i was trying out something new with my feet more out in stead of tucked under me. I think this is a better position for me because i felt so stable. Any advise on this would be appreciated. Tear my **** up if you want but just remember I'm going more for a powerlifting style. Thanks guys.

Haha. That's all I could think of when describing it. I've done log flips with 20 ft logs that where very light. This thing must have been made out of teak or something cuz it was only 5 ft tall but felt heavy as s**t

Thanks man. I have brought my stance in a little closer to give my hip a break but it is still a sumo power style. Whenever i try bringing my stance in my knees start to feel it more even though I do a good job of forcing them out. I was thinking about incorperating some Oly style squats with a lighter weight for the 5x10 boring but big portion cuz i love the quadgasms though.

Thanks. I'm also looking forward to the fact that everyone here is pretty much stronger than me and can give me awesome advice.

I will be making videos for every peak 5/3/1 week. Everything else i will just wright down. Also i will make videos of my strongman/ cardio type training on sundays. I don't do a lot of heavy stuff on that day, just push my truck around, sledge work, tire flips, farmers walk, ect.

This is my introduction to this forum as well. Iv'e tried a few logs on some other sights where all you see is teenage boys flexing their abs and trying to give advice on what supplements to take. Or comments like "why do you squat with such a wide stance? You should bring it closer to get a better contraction in your quads." Sry for the ramble. I'm happy to be here. I am on my second week first cycle of 5/3/1 training and am loving every bit of it. My goals right now are to continue to get strong while building my frame as big as possible. Im using the boring but big accessory work and have added a few thinks to trigger some hypertrophy. My short term goals are to compete in my first powerlifting tourney this year and to eventually compete in strong man. I'm 6"2" so i want to get a lot bigger before i compete in strong man. Peace
