    Journey to the XPC Arnold Bench Qualifier

    Going to be going through PSL for my journey to the XPC Arnold Bench Qualifier... Excited. PSL and I have communicated quite a few times over recent months and I find him to be a stand up guy. I hope this log works out and our adventure together proves to be pleasurable for all the followers.

    This journey will be rough, making it to the Arnold Classic will be one hell of an achievement and one that I for sure can accomplish. I will get to compete with the best. I am not too happy that it will be bench only, but I must be patient. The rest will come with time, dedication, and hard work.

    Speaking of time. Remember that OLD ASS LOG I had in the training section entitled my quest for a 450+lbs bench? It took me 4 years... that is right 4 years to accomplish that... Now I am 470lbs+ bencher.
    Dedicate yourself, find your passion, and WORK.

    Sunday is either speed or volume, decided to do some "heavy" volume today!

    After speed work hit the triceps
    Tate presses
    then pushdowns (drop sets)

    3 sets chest supported rows

    3 sets bicep curls.

    Good afternoon everyone,

    Today was that max effort squat with 100lbs chains. I made it to 385lbs without wraps. From there I jumped to 425lbs with wraps (that is 525lbs at the top).

    Took me two attempts to smash this weight, but I got it. Had to get my head and technique correct !

    Today got some nice lifts in.

    Hit max effort on the bands for bench. used the black mini bands.
    Stopped a bit shy of my max--not allowed to risk missing the set!



    After this I did 3 sets with hanging kettlebells to work on stabilizers

    Then I jumped in on some Push Press.

    Got some nice lift
