Epic's Natural Training Towards New All-Time Heights. (Or Lows...)


#1

Hi i am Fireball, well actually i’m not. I am a human truth be told. But that kinda is my nic so it has some truth in it. I am 31 years old all-natural lifter. I pretend to powerlift but In my opinnion lately I have just been lifting things. I have quite busy life of late. Gf trains and I train and we have 1,5 year old boy. So training happens just 2x week nowadays at least the little man is 3 years of age. So, at least for the next 1,5 years I will be tesing how far reasonable 2x week training will take me.

Anyway here is my last workout in shortened mode:

Deadlift: 1x2@190, 1x1@190, 1x1@190kg. Did pyramids till 190kg.
Benchpress: 1x1@140kg and then 1x5@120kg. (pyramid too)
BB rows: worked till 2x8@90kg, 1x6@90kg. Then some backdown sets.
Press: 4x6@60kg. + Kloklov pressing.
Then biceps triceps and few more rows.

There we go, training log has been opened.

On saturnday I went to Finnish climbing park Huippu. I kinda didin’t know how to break during the 40 feet slide (Actually it was 60feet just checked.) slidedown so I might have crashed against the ground back first. It sure efficiently knocked the breath hell away from me. After 3h of climbing, we got some subway food from the drive-in. I took gf to my siter’s place, and went myself to my parents place to take their dogs out for a walk. After I had retrieved gf and little man, went to the gym somewhere around 8pm.

Training:
Squat: 15@80kg, 10@100kg, 8@110. 6@130, 3@150, 6@160kg. ( I went light, my knees weren´t feeling all that hot. Hadn’t prolly been eating, or drinking enough throughout the day.)
Bench press: just rep training at relatively light weigts from 60 to 90kg. Can’t really go full force with bp so soon after the maxing out day .
Lat pulldowns: 3x8@70kg, 4x6@70kg, 8@60kg, 2x6@60kg. Then did some hold at chest, superslow pulldowns.
DB rows: 2x8@32,5kg.
French press: 15,12,10,10,10@40kg.
Biceps: 15,12,10,8@35. 3x6@30kg.

Perhaps next week, I will change the pallet a bit to squeeze few more kilograms out to my bench max.
Not sure right now should I go with: Sheiko + RPE regime. (It seemed to work rather well the last year.) Cube + RPE was great too. I also concider should I just modify my own BPT: with RPE progression.

The thing is: 2x week training boosts recovery to new heights and I can pretty much pummel the body as much as I desire every single time, provided that the two are spaced far enough away from each others. I also have taken this time to clean my eats and lower my calories a bit for steady fat-loss.

Let´s see what this week brings… I Hope some relief at least for my stiff, pained back… I also could use a week’s worth of shuteye…

Yesterday’s training:

Squat: 20@bar, 15@50, 10@90, 8@110, 5@130, 3@150, 3@160, 3@170, 6@180kg. OH YEAH!
Bench press: 20@bar, 15@50, 12@70, 8@80, 8@90, 6@100kg, 3@110, 1@120, 1@130, 1@135, 5@120kg. (Guess I can soon do the 150kg bench.
BB rows: 8@50,60,70,80. 6@90,100,80,80,80,70,70,70kg.
Tricep cable pulls: 4-5@10@ various weights.
DB rows: 2x8@30kg.
Biceps: regular curls 9@17,5kg, 12@15kg. Then isolation curls: 8@15kg, 2x8@12,5kg

Then foamrolling, shower and home.


#4

Last friday´s midnight special. I slept 4 hours that day, felt tired, irritated and a bit down. However that didin´t seem to effect me much once i starterd moving.

Deadlift: 5s till 150kg, then: 3@160,170. 1x@180,190,205! (That 205 being the highest DL I have done in 2 years.)
Bench press: 20@50kg, 15@70kg, 10@80kg, 6@100kg, 3@110, 1@120, 135, 140 145kg then I did 6@110kg. ( the 145kg being the biggest bp i have done in 2 years.)
DB rows: lots, lots, lots and lots more reps.
Lat pulldowns: lots, lots and lots more.
Triceps: with french press.
Biceps: Not all that many… arms felt like super bloated macaroni, equally in performance, just pumped big…

Then shower, while having those really horrible jokes that come only after tired can´t even to begin to coup with the state of being. Those jokes likely disgusted, hurt many feelings and seemed insane to any outlooker that were not sharing the same “lose” state of mind…
Went to bed around 3am and woke at 08:00am… Such a great quality sleep!


#5

Yesterday´s night train(ing):

Squat: 20@bar. 15@60, 12@80, 8@100, 3@110, 3@140, 1@150,160,170,180,190,200,210kg! (My old PR! I´m so happiehhh! Everybody said that the depth was fine. But I know I could done a bit lower at that weight.
Bench press: 12-8 rep sets with 10kg increases in increments until 100kg. Then totall of 32 reps at 100kg. Kept around 4-6 reps per set.
Machine rows: KA-KA-BA-TON/S"`#¤ load.
triceps: Cable stuff.
Biceps: Cable stuff.

I truly do like repetition quota training. As in: set heavy enough weights that you can´t do more than 6 reps in the begining and fill that quota no mater how many sets it takes. Then again i like lots of different kinds of training.

Some Meatlosophy & meatculation:
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

  • Albert Einstein
    Intresting fact: There are more than twice as many quotes and proverbs about value, than there are about worth. And there is over ten times many quotes about success than there is about value or worth.

It´s actually rather Mind–boggling, when you really start to think about the requirements of becoming a man of substance and of value versus that of success.


#6

For the past two weeks, I have gotten my ballz groped by more males, than would had ever wanted. :sob: I was happy with just me doing that… (Well this is a one way to start a new entry…)… Good side: they found nothing a miss. Bad side: they found no reason for the pain either…I been working at hospital doing AP installations. I guess i caught something from somewhere. First came the typical flue: nose running, sore throat, the works. Then came the pain: intestines became inflamed, feaver and the works. What worries me that my right ball began hurtting… still kinda does… . Then kid got sick, then my fiancee… And this week I been doing on-call work. which means I been pretty much working 14h per day. I haven´t got around to the gym. Hopefully tomorrow.

Just a Few updates: I have upgraded bench to 145kg, deadlift to 210 and squat to 210kg.
Those above mentioned lifts are remarkable, since they have been achieved with 8kg/17,6lbs lower bodyweight than the orginal records. Now just need my bench to 150-155kg, squat to 215kg, deadlift to 215kg and i can call this year a success.


#7

And another small update:

Squat upgraded to 215kg/473lbs. (I was alone so no video.:frowning: but took a picture anyhow.) And yes, I am stupid, squated without safety bars outside the rack. It was DO OR DIE. (Or at least shame myself badly by dropping)


Attempted to realize 215kg deadlift but couldn’t straighten out it just yet.
Attempted 150kg bench but couldn’t get the few last centimeters to clear it.
Now I must move my goals to this year. It´s probably good since I was starting to feel overtrained :frowning:

Just a quick copy of my latest workouts Above.

Current stats:
Weight 119kg. I art so heavy…
Lifts: Let’s not go there.
I have 2 kids now. (Basically I have now material evidence of me getting laid at least twice in my life. Or more exactly, that my wife has gotten laid at least twice)
A lot has changed in my life. Most on that fundamental level, that makes personalities. I’m much more me. Lucid, relaxed, calm, focused, positive. My diet has been cleaned up, all things that don’t fit me have gone. That includes smoking, added sugar.

I´m currently doing comprehensive work on finding the right diet. I am a absolute standing evidence that minus calories do not work to reduce weight if the diet: Irritate digestion, cause too much stress, or mess up hormone production too much. Choices of food substance seems to matter more, than the calorie amount. I suspect that the reason might be metabolic damage or simply the food’s bowel optimisation. Eitherway, to get my hormones to optimal level and keeping overall health, a diet must be found that fits me perfectly. ( I am already eating, rather optimally. in modern sense of bodybuilding spots. But it doesn´t seem to fit me at all.) Even with this un-optimal digestion, I have been always been able to build tons of muscle. It would be intresting to see, just how much more slabs of muscle I can toss up with a custom diet.

Aaanyway, my future goals include:

  • Lose 15kg fat weight.
  • Find optimal diet so my stomach works perfectly.
  • Overall health increases.
  • Gain high strength levels.

Exercises:
Flat Bench Press:1x5@100,100,100, 100, 100kg.
3x5@105kg. (next time do all 5 sets)

Barbell Curls:5x5@37,5kg. Or 42,5kg depending on the bar weight.
Abs. As Pullovers: 3x10@91kg (my new favorite

All in all, rather low energy workout today but it has been like 3 months when I last went light. I suppose I take 3 days off.

Anyway on the side note: I just finished up with rather decent classic bodybuilding nutrition plan. If you want a diet plan for 2600kcal. Please ask and I’ll post it here including proteins, carbs, fibers and fats. However it’s just a single day’s meals. Free of charge. I also Realized a few days ago that I have never actually written to my mother other than texts so I decided to write her an epic letter to thank her for making me so awesome! I finished the rough draft now it’s time to write it on paper. With my calligrapher skills it will look like it was written by an 8-year old. Anyway, I have a great feeling about upcoming days and weeks.

War on Dem barbells!!!

First gratitude letter was well received. I believe, that I’ve made the world a little better place.

I will edit some days on the LFGB (my current program.) It actually could be a bit better balanced. I will also substitute some exercises in it with more suited ones.

What comes to food allergies: I’m still looking.

Currently not eating:
Any grains.
Any milk produce.
No beef. (without beef it seems that the stuff that comes out becomes more solid.)

What had no effect:
Tomatoes.

This is a bit tormenting without cheese and beef…

Other than that I’m maintaining muscle well and losing fat fast. By the next week I should be wiser.

The allergy test is concluded and result is a rather significant one. And something very interesting for all you with odd food allergies that don’t seem to get discovered: I’m allergic to lactose, been so for something like the last 18-20 years. So no news there, I’m same with 50 to 60 million Americans.

So for years I have eaten lactose free products. Such products are made lactose free by adding enzyme called the lactase. It works by splitting lactose to glucose and galactose sugars. But I’ve had lots of lactose alike and worse symtoms for years. So it’s been a while since I produced anything solid in the toilet. I put the symptoms to various things such as possible other allergies. I thought it was milk allergy. Or allergy to all beef based proteins. I do eat very healthy and balanced food pretty much always. I was ready to hand my gloves and to give up all produce coming from cows.

However I had to make a business trip to good old England. So at England due to extreme schedule I didn’t have many restaurant choices so I ate at, the hotel each morning the English breakfast. There was no lactose free choices. so I just went with regular lactose products. I ate cheddar and other hard cheeses due to their high fat content, reasoning that the lactose will affect slower with tighter molecyle layout. I was sure that I’d have horrible time flying back. But nothing, trip was great and I felt awesome. Then back at home and in few days problems started again. So with that data I began vigorous self-study. So what I found was mind boggling to me.

Here is what I learned: In the end I’m not sure if I’m allergic to lactase, or milk based glucose or galactose and of course lactose or what. I can however eat long matured cheeses and milk produces with 0g of carbs without any problems. And anything with zero milk sugars. Also the higher the fat content less the lactose seems to affect.

So if you too have such problems or even issues with a milk allergy just try eating long matured cheese and see if there is issues or not.

Currently I’m healthier than in years and packing up muscle hard! Free of certain uncomfortable lactose and allergy issues.
