hey!! thanks for checking in Commander!!! I have been superbusy at school for the Army, and didnt even have a computer...I tried updating from my phone, but it got old..fast!!

I am still running a version of that explosive/heavy hybrid i talked with you about,and seeing great results. I have been slow to up my working weights..but still seeing payoff. I have also added in power cleans..which are awesome!! I am now able to rep 225 from the floor, catch it in a full front squat and fininsh the lift. i have gained weight, but appear slimmer and more defined, my wife says I look wide..which i guess is a good thing!! strenght is going up as well for example

today i pulled 525x1, 5 sets on deads...easily

earlier this week I was able to squat 315x5, 5 sets relatively easily..315 itself isnt much..but the volume was pretty killer!


i have basically ditched traditional bench training..after squatting i go into an upper body cirucit that focuses on usually db bench or explosive bb press with pullups, some abs, pushups, etc..i still press heavy, only once in a whle for variation

some exp squat days i even superset squats with bench and dont set a rep or set limit..i just say i will superset these as much as i can in xxx amount of time...then leave!! haha

so everything is going well!! thanks for asking!!

i will be taking a week off now, time to take the kids on a well deserved summer vacation to Disney World! (summer with me in school and moving sucked for them)

I am glad things are going to great.

Power cleans are awesome, that is some impressive weight to be cleaning, great job. Most I have cleaned is 200, but I suck at the catch, I don't know how to catch in a full front squat position.

If you have the opportunity, try hang snatchs, pretty awesome as well. They are like a total body exercise if you ask me.

I love the squat/bench superset workout. It feels very effective and takes little time to get in a good workout.

Have fun on vacation!

Yeah, it is effective! Thanks for the to on snatch...i used to incorporate kettle bells, but don't have access any more, those may be a great substitute!!

I have my best lifting at lunch time as well. I think being awake for a few hours prior to the workout is definitely best.

How long do you have between PT and the workout? I can see some benefit in terms of the body being activated, getting blood flow with the early workout. But you also say you are "beat down" which doesn't seem conducive to helping the lunch workout. That is very interesting.

general fatigue, commander..for instance, the second day I did PT with my new Unit we ran 5 miles..a feat not done by me for quite some time..hahaha..still held my own, actually beat everyone back! I generally have about 3 hrs between workouts, so like you said, my body is probably primed since I am getting a larger breakfast, and there is not enough time for DOMS or anything to set in.
