Monster Garage Gym/Maroscher Coaching Log: By MGG owner, 2-Time WPC World Powerlifting Champion, Eric Maroscher. (Log number XXXVI).
The MONSTER GARAGE GYM has had its fourth expansion since 2006-2007. On Saturday, August 1st, the team all pitched in and helped move 85,000LBS of weights and equipment from MGG 3.0 to MGG 4.0 giving us the much needed training space as the team continues to grow and our equipment continues to multiply. The next day after the move, Sunday, with pallets still piled high with plates, dumbbells and the like, the team continued training, unpacking, training, moving things around, training, etc. This Coaching Log takes place on our fourth day at MGG 4.0. Some 28 powerlifters in total trained on Wednesday and we had four deadlift areas going at once as Wednesday is one of the two deadlift days at the MONSTER GARAGE GYM. While we trained the process of bolting some of our EliteFTS power racks and EliteFTS deluxe benches was being done by MGG’s, Dr. Al. So, please pardon our mess as we unpack and begin to Monsterize our new digs. Ever Onward, Eric Maroscher: Owner, Monster Garage Gym.
This log features a contrast for you to note. A contrast between a RAW max effort day and an equipped day utilizing 60% bar weight and adding chains each set until failure. Two very different training approaches to the same end goal….pulling more!!! This log features AAPF National Junior RAW Powerlifting Champion, Justin Norman. Justin currently owns the squat, bench press, deadlift and total AAPF RAW National powerlifting records in the Junior 125KG class. This log also features Mike Strom who is coming off of his 2nd APF Senior Nationals win (1962LBS at 181LBS) and is in the Top 50 ALL TIME list of American benchers in two weight categories.

Mike’s Log:
“We basically did our warm-ups, then worked roughly up to 60% bar weight and just kept adding chain and pulling singles. I ended up with 11 pairs of chains with one set being the extra heavy set so approximately 500LBS of chain weight in total added on to the weight on the bar.”
Justin’s Log:
“A couple of times this summer I had a heat stroke as I work outside. So today was my first day getting to go a little heavier. I did my normal warm-up to 5 plates then went 585LBS x 1 and 635LBS x 2 then a max effort 675LBS triple, all were RAW sets. My back was too stiff to go on from there so I moved to accessories.”
