    I currently work out 3-4 days a week and train Brazilian Jiu-jitsu 2-4 days a week. I'm also training and compete in Scottish Highland Games. Before starting a legit strength program in May 2010, I had not really lifted weights for close to 20 years.

    In May 2010, I tested my 5 rep max:

    Bench: 205
    Squat: 225
    Deadlift: 255
    SOHP: 125

    I've made huge gains since starting:

    Current PR's:
    Bench: 1x315 - 2/8/2012 - Bench Press 1x315.MOV - YouTube
    Low Bar Squats: 1x405 - 12/23/2011 - Squat 1x405 - YouTube
    Deadlift: 1x475 - 2/20/2012 - Deadlift 1x475 - YouTube
    SOHP: 1x205 - 12/27/2011 - Strict Overhead Press - 1x205 - YouTube
    Push Press: 1x245 - 12/29/2011 - Push Press 1x245 - YouTube
    Weighted Chins: 1xBW+115 (336 lb Total) - 5/2/2011 - Chinup BW+115 lbs (337 lbs Total).avi - YouTube

    GOALS FOR 2013
    Paused Bench Press: 300
    Deadlift: 500
    Squat: 440

    I competed in my 1st Powerlifting meet in September 2012. Totaled 1158 @ 215. Here's the vid:


    I competed in my 2nd Powerlifting meet in January 2013. Went 9 for 9 & totaled 1223 @ 215 (430,297,496). Here's the vid:

    Good luck in 2013 buddy. Unless your plane goes down on the way to Hawaii you'll nail all of those goals.

    Good stuff today - this is my last heavy deadlift day before the meet on 1/12. Felt great to set a PR! This is my 1st Deadlift PR since February 2012! Only 5 pounds, but I'll take it.

    Felt even better because a month ago I did 0x475, 1x475, 0x475...

    That red lighted 419 looked right on the border to me. Looked easy too.

    And congrats on the PR

    It was a good experience though, I know I need to be conscious of my depth & not get lazy. Hopefully its not an issue next time.

    I've been doing basic 5/3/1 for the last 6 months for deadlift but really focusing on squats, to be honest. I'm going to make some changes soon to my deadlift programming, but haven't decided what exactly. I want more volume, so either 5/3/1 + singles or speed DLs or deficits.... OR I'll do some type of more direct progression.

    Thanks miaou!

    Also here's some programming thoughts I wanted to jot down....

    Here are the next competitions I have coming up. Not confirmed yet, probably won't do some of these, but this is the tentative calendar for the 1st half of the year:

    1/12 - PL Meet, Camp Pendleton
    2/16 - Queen Mary Highland Games, Long Beach, CA
    3/21 - PanAmerican BJJ Championships
    5/25 - ScotsFest Highland Games US Championships, Costa Mesa, CA
    6/22 - Vista Highland Games, San Diego, CA

    So with this in mind, I have a couple of goals that I'll implement after the PL Meet, which will help with Highland Games, BJJ & regular GPP:

    1) Make BJJ a priority. OK, Maybe this won't help too much with Highland Games, but I'm going to try to start privates & training at some different gyms. Need 4x or more sessions each week. If I don't do this I won't be able to compete in March.

    2) More Speed - I'm going to switch from SOHP to Push Press. Going to switch from Paused bench to TnG. Also going to implement more jumping, sprinting & plyos.

    3) Diet - Working on eating smarter & tracking macros with consistency. Ideally I'd like to be able to compete in Heavyweight (207.5 lb with the gi) in March. This means I need to lose about 12 pounds over the next 3 months.

    BJJ - 1 Hour "Special Guard Class"


    Great class tonight. Instructor has added a "special guard class" to the schedule. We'll focus on a specific guard for a month, class is 3x a week with 1 technique or concept a week. This month is Open Guard, which is great for me, because mine needs a ton of work.

    I would think open gaurd would suit you. Once you get use to giving up that sense of control a closed guard offers I think you'll love it. Let that hip strength you work so hard pay off.

    It takes a lot.more out of you though.

    Well I think my plan is to work as much open guard as I can for now & maybe I'll learn something...
