no_gains_brandog Max day, post Smolov. My goal from the start of smolov was to raise my max above 405, and I did just that. Today, I hit 410lbs belted. Before Smolov, i was hitting 335 belted and 315 beltless.

My next goal is 515 belted! Kidding, I want to build my beltless max up to 405, and eventually be able to rep it.

Thanks to everyone for the support! Especially everyone in my quad squad, which has since exceeded 4 members. The power of my hat from the motherland also did its part.

I know I'm talking this up to be a big deal, when I know that I am still a newb in the power lifting scene.... but, back in January, I was dreaming of maxing 315lbs.

I'll probably put up a side by side with my pre-smolov max some time.

  •   no_gains_brandog @aliaftabb That's a lot of volume, though. You'll be maxing above 315 before the year is over if you keep this up 14h
  •   protomatix @aliaftabb i need your body fat % lol. Im slacking man :( and i need ur 365 bench 14h
  •   aliaftabb Yeah! Im trying to get to it by New Years hopefully. My volume based squats are feeling really easy it's just my heavy days that suck. Like I can bust out my reps real quick and easy on my volume days but I really gotta focus on my breathing and shit on my heavy days 14h
  •   no_gains_brandog Sounds like you're on the right track, then, @aliaftabb. Do you work your gg/bg's and stretch at night? Also, ask @hassyaftab to send you my version of jr so you can try it out after you finish this cycle 14h
  •   aliaftabb @protomatix LOL I just recently put on some weight so my bf% went up a little but this cut has been bringing me back down. And my bench is nothing special at this rate im hitting like 3x5x245 right now :( 14h
  •   aliaftabb @no_gains_brandog I actually have no idea what those stretches are lol I'll ask Hassan about them and alrighty yeah please im sure that'd help big time 14h
  •   rehband Keep up the good work @no_gains_brandog ! 3h

no_gains_brandog W13D2 of #smolov. Today's sets were harder than they should have been, and now I'm playing the game of staying psyched for max day this Thursday. After that, I plan on checking out a real gym here in town, so I can be surrounded by people with similar goals.

Set list:
1x4 at 265lbs
4x4 at 305lbs (shown)

My camera man was on point. I wish I could have fit in his editing at the end.

kojiwada 走りたい

走りたい

持病のヒザ痛、筋トレで克服したはずが…

30年前の事故の影響か

十字靱帯断裂、内側靱帯断裂、大腿骨粉砕

全治1年30年経ったがまだ痛い(笑)

痛みが退くと走る、また痛み(笑)

筋トレあるのみなのか?

次は10/25軽井沢

負けられん。
