The road to 500
 
what up. since im still doing rehab work with my legs im not doing anything special with them so i figured hey i just got back in business with my shoulder so why not start a short term journal. i will dedicate this journal strictly to getting up 500. i think i am honestly there but i have to get my shit straight.

so for now here is the vid i took today. 475 and i failed




now take heed that last week was my first time getting heavy on the flat bench in months.

also yesterday i tried 500 twice and i got it up to the same point i got that 475. but i only got a few hours sleep the night before and i really didnt eat to much all day.


so this is the plan. i will be doing other work with OH press, back and leg stuff but i will dedicate this to all bench work. i will post flat bench, incline and push up work in here. i will try to get all freeweight work on camera so you guys can check it out.


normally i would have been upset since i didnt get it up but as you can see im knockin on the door and maybe if i played my cards right i might have even gotten it all the way.

so now i have a reason to post a little more and i hoe you guys enjoy

Good work with what you were able to do. Same for the other vids. You're gonna get there, man, I know it, and even go beyond it. I couldn't do 225 on bench 6 mos. ago, and I do it 4 times now. You just gotta stick with it. You know how the game goes. Best of luck!

thanks i knwo how it is. the thing is i feel like i can do it now. just not preparing myself right thats all. usually when people want to do shit they get themselves together. i just up and say "hey im gonna do this today". so it will all fall together.

MONSTAFACE 09-17-2008 06:11 PM

oh and joker im pretty sure you can get it if you worked at it. your a string dude yourself

Thats crazy man. What are your stats?

MONSTAFACE 09-17-2008 07:17 PM

5'7 290 to 300. i would say my normal weight is lik 270. picked up some weight when i had a few injuries.

have no clue what my squat max is but i know at one point in time i could squat 315 15 to 20 times.

deadlift i have no clue. not where it needs to be by no means, but that was due to not having a gym and going through injuries. i huge one not being my fault and the rest are from me being an asshole :)

EDIT: my OH press is 315 and up. i probably can do more but i havent tried more yet. depending on the day and what i have done suring the week dicttes how many reps i can do

in the avatar pic i am around 280
