10/15- Single Ply Squats w/video, 7 Weeks out from the APF Gulf Coast Winter Bash

I have been competitively powerlifting for over 20 years. Within that time I have competed raw, single ply and multi ply. I hold the highest all time total of 1930 at 148, the third highest total of 2045 at 165 and have broken over 35 world records, over 25 of which I still hold. Through the years in this sport I have learned a great deal from various training methods, met and formed long lasting friends, as well as learned the importance of balancing life, work, and training.

Elitefts accepted me as a team member over ten years ago and I am currently the longest standing still competing powerlifter on the site. I appreciate Dave Tate and Elitefts for giving me the opportunity to learn from and teach others through the Q&A and my training log.

In 2005 I opened Orlando Barbell – a 24 hour powerlifting friendly gym. As well as running Orlando Barbell I designed and sell the Home GHR and Doorway Home Gym, wrote the 12 Weeks to a Bigger Bench EBook, and produced the 12Weeks to a Bigger Bench DVD.

My latest contribution was writing the M2 Method EBook, designed to be the quintessential Raw Powerlifting training manual for beginners to advanced lifters looking to get stronger and prevent injury while incorporating the powerlifts.

I'm currently in off season training and plan to compete in the single ply division in the APF Gulf Coast Winter Bash on December 5th.

I apologize for being way, way behind on my training log. We hosted the APF Southern States last weekend which monopolized a lot of my time. I also didn’t want to post my log until I posted the results, but am getting too far behind now. We did back and bis or some form of accessory last Wednesday, but I don’t even remember what we did now. Here’s how Thursday’s squats went.

Standard warm up:

5 mins. Treadmill

Prehab
PVC rolled on:
Lower back, shifted to right and left
Upper back, shifted to right and left scapula w/hips up
Armpits
Hamstrings
Glutes
Adductors

Buffalo Bar Squats-
145x5
235x3
325x2
w/Metal single ply M briefs-
415x1
w/Metal single ply M suit, straps down-
505x1
w/reverse light bands-
595x1
w/Metal black knee wraps-
645x1
Straps up-
675x1


I need to have someone start calling my depth from here on. The Metal M suit is super supportive, but I may actually try the King again next week since I seem to have better control in a slightly looser suit.
