Git- Thank you, glad to have the ghost of 405 behind me. Really getting into LOG, didn’t care for them at first but they’ve become one of my favorite bands. Go get some 405!!
Snap, Matty, bulldog, DK, Elaikases - thank guys, I’ve only got 45 pages to reach my goals, better get at it.
Fisher- The plan will be 5/3/1 nothing special. Ideally I want to remain around the same weight 230lbs no more than 240lbs. I don’t lose weight very easily anymore so the less weight gained the better.
Awww, I would have rather heard your profanity. I admire people who can get themselves that fired up because I’m unable to do it.
Great effort on the deads. You seem to be on quite a roll lately. Long may it continue.
Keep smashing those PRs.
The original video had an NC-17 rating, it had to be edited. Been taking Rhodiola for the last few months, it works exceptionally well to reduce stress however it also makes it pretty impossible to have any kind of fire for big lifts. Once I figured that out and stopped taking it prior to lifting anything heavy PR’s have been coming again.
CT mentioned that getting fired up while training may be a bad thing for competitive lifters, since I don’t compete it should be cool. Just get mad at it!!

Interesting on the rhodiola, i have just started taking it and don’t seem to be having that problem with it so far.
However i am nowhere near ‘heavy’ lifting .
Getting really riled and rired up last week did shake things up a bit though so its not always wrong to get mad !![/quote]
That’s good that Rhodiola doesn’t effect you, it’s almost like valium to me.
Just remember heavy is relative. It’s easy around here to forget that more than likely you’re stronger than most folks your age in your gym.
What ever works man, just move more weight.
Its funny about the getting mad at the weight I watch tons of video of lifters yelling, getting slapped and what not…and thats just not my style, I guess Im more internal and cerebral.
If someone slapped me on my back before a lift, I probably would be like “OUCH, dick WTF you do that for!?” You ruined my concentration…lol.[/quote]
I’m not down with someone slapping me either, never understood that but to each their own.
Used to be the same way Matty, I’m kind of a go with the flow type but realized I was leaving weight on the bar. Starting to develop that me v. the weight attitude, seems to work.
