      Had 2 hours off between classes today. Hit up the school gym. Split boxers doing kettlebell swings.

      Lesson learned. Don't workout if not wearing compression shorts.

      A Soviet program designed by my coach Ivan Rojas in collaboration with Dr. Alfredo Herrera (former directer of the Cuban Olympic team).

      I don't think new lifters really need a program per se. Just do a ton of snatches with the bar. I mean like 10-20 sets per day 3-5 reps per set. If you don't have a coach make sure you film yourself every day, upload it get critiques from people who know what they're doing.

      Do lots of squats, back squats, front squats, over head squats, etc...

      Got 125 on C&J today. Still nothing to write home about, but my numbers are going up with consistency so that's nice.

      Testing for local police department on Oct 13. They require a 1/4 mile time of 1:45 and a few weeks ago I timed myself at 1:15 at a local schools track. Made 1:09 today with a light wind against me down the first straight away. How anyone runs a 4 minute mile is beyond me.


      I should be fine for the test regardless.

      Ugh..Knocked the damn rust off today it's been way too long since I was able to hit the gym. TDY to Czech Republic and the gym there was too far and was terrible.

      Anyway decided to try and test my squat max's out today after not squatting for about 3 weeks. Worked my way up to 300 went for 305 and my buddy had to help a bit to get it back up so I guess I'm at 300 for a 1rm. I think I could have gotten that 305 if I would have skipped the 300 and went right for it but not a huge deal at least I know where I'm at.

      Going to stick w/ the 5x5 for a few more weeks and try to get my 3x5 work sets up to 300. Then I want to try out the 5/3/1 program.

      Interestingly enough, I'm starting 5/3/1 today. Only going to be using the program for the big 4. All my accessory work is going to be a hodgepodge of what I was doing, and some other things I want to work on.

      I'm looking forward to having everything programmed out for me. I looked back through my training logs, and despite a few setbacks, was still not impressed with my overall progress for the last year or so. I think my figure changed quite a bit, but, my numbers have slowed down quite dramatically.

      Hopefully this, plus a bump in calories, will have my progressing again. Just gotta have patience.

      One thing that cracks me up abolut those who lift with gear or who are on gear: they never bring it up. It's only bragging about their numbers.
      It's all about squats and deads.

      Not sure who you're talking about but just to throw this out there I'm not using any type of "gear" other than a belt on my max sets.

      A lot goes over X's head

      I just pulled 432 for a single. Beyond ecstatic. Even more stoked about 405 strapless. My grip has come so far in a short time.

      No I don't count those. The bar I use is 27 lbs. Weird, I know. It's short. There's a Xander joke in there somewhere.

      Hahahaha I just always start with a 10 on each side to make it "45". I typically ignore the extra two because they're in my favor. It's easier to count if the bar is 45 than 27. But for max. reporting, I added the two in. I'll take everything I can get.

      Hows that for progress?

      Very good. Now the next step is obviously 495.

      Started 5/3/1 this week.
      Heaviest 5+ sets as followed:
      OHP : 125 x 10
      Dead(sumo) : 315 x 10 - had a rep or two more in the tank, but lost my grip on one hand at lockout. Felt like that guy making a total racket.
