My name is Ben Seath. I am a 21 year old Raw Powerlifter who is sponsored by AnimalPak. I am have been using the 5/3/1 since January 2010 almost 2 full years now and my lifts are still going up! I just recently hit the best meet of my life!
Squat 859.7 Bench 485 Dead 655.7 ( Yeah not a very big dead just a bad day. Next meet I want 725) Total 2000.4 Video of that meet:
My Next Meet will be December 10th 2011 West Coast Open Powerlifting Championships in Newport Oregon. It will be my first Money Meet. I will be giving my Goals for this meet in 2-3 weeks going to see how training goes.
I will be posting my training on these days Sunday: Standing Military Press Monday: Deadlift Wednesday: Bench Friday: Squat
Right now I am still doing Heavy low rep not back on the 5/3/1 just yet.
This Workout I switched up my form on the deads as you see in my meet video I am very stiff legged type deadlifter witch prevents me for getting a solid lockout. I did not expect to pull 675 like I did!! Eric Lilliebridge gave me some pointers on the deadlift and it helped alot!

This Quote has been posted on my wall , in my car and on my Gym bag "When you are willing to sacrifice anything...the sky is the limit."
Seated DB Shoulder Press Sets and Reps 3 X 12 or 5 X 6
Tricep pushdowns: Form is Crucial on these I was doing the all wrong for years and didn't even know it until I trained with my buddy Justin Randle and he tweaked my form. I'll post a video on how I do them with my Bench Press Video on Wednesday.
