Spring 2009 Training
Mesocycle 5 - Week 3

Press Day

Beginning Thoughts:
The Flu is going around. Sad news is 3 of my close friends are also sick. Several frat boys have the flu too. Today in my exam 7 kids didn't turn up because of the flu. It is REALLY going around. Shit sucks. I think I'm gonna fall sick soon....I've been eating a lot food to offset this. I remember 2 years ago when I got Malaria when I was back home in Bombay I overate (and by overate I mean like 6000-7000 calories) for 3 days and I didn't lose a pound and I got over Malaria within those 3 days. I hope this does the trick this time as well.
Workout:
Elastic Band Punches:
12 reps x 3 sets

Press Singles:
165 lbs x 1 rep
170 lbs x 1 rep
175 lbs x 1 rep
175 lbs x fail
175 lbs x fail
175 lbs x 1 rep
Called it a day. I was feeling very weak. I wanted to hit 9 singles but this was out of the question today. So I decided to try my luck on pull-ups...

Special Bar Pull-ups:
BW x 8 reps x 3 sets
Fucking yeah!!! Weighing over 200 lbs I am damn pleased I got all these reps!

Push-ups:
BW x 15 reps x 3 sets

Inverted Rows:
BW x 12 reps x 3 sets

Elastic Band Punches:
12 reps x 3 sets
Videos:
Press, Paul's Bench Press and my Pull-ups:
Diet:
Protein = 397.1 grams = 42%
Fat = 137.8 grams = 32%
Carbohydrates = 254.2 grams = 26%
TOTAL = 4,000 Calories
Overall Impression:
I hope I don't get the flu.....

Wow, he would be a LOT stronger if he got his legs tucked back & was able to generate some leg drive coming out of the bottom when he benches. The way he benches now restricts his arch & probably stability also.

Do you mean he should tuck his legs back so his is sort of driving off his toes/top of his feet? Or what?

Nice workout Anuj. Stay healthy.

Well, I hate to show a Joey Smith video, but it's the best I could find on short notice.
He gets his legs tucked under him. When he's all the way at the bottom and starts to press, watch his feet. It helps to keep him tight & maintain his leverage. And he gets a little drive out of it. He's just forcing his heels down towards the ground.

If you watch Paul, he doesn't have much arch in his back. He arches up at the very bottom...he's basically flat before he gets there. His legs are so far out that he can't get much arch even when he does try at the bottom. If he got his legs tucked & a good arch BEFORE the lift off, then he would be able to stay tight and maintain better leverage. If he improved his setup, then he would definitely be putting up much better numbers. I'm not saying he should lift like Joey (which would mean dumping on most of his attempts at meets & being arrogant as hell), but he could change a couple of small things and it would help him out.
