Danny Bellmore – Week 7 Off Season

I was just off a deload week and I felt very flat pretty much for most of the week. Nothing moved well at all in the past week. In the past I would tend to over think things, now I just shrug it off as a bad week. We all have them, and I am quite sure this will not be my last one. Even Clark Kent didn’t wear that S on his chest every day. I began the process of breaking in a new Inzer SDP that Brian had sent to me. This shirt will take a while to break in since it is fairly tight.

Everything I handled on this night felt heavy as hell.
Bench Press
10 Min Walk
McGill Big 3
Bench Top Set of 3
Shirt work triples to 4 boards (Break In)
2 brd Reg Grip 6×2
Dumbell Tricep Ext 4×10
Dumbell Cleans 4×12

As I was warming up, I felt it was not going to be a great night. I focused on proper body position while opening my hips up very hard. The form felt great just didn’t have the strength to back it up on this night.
10 min walk
McGill Big 3
Light belt squats
Deadlift top set of 3 Raw
4-inch Block Pulls Conventional 4×6
Bent Over Rows 3×10
DB Shrugs 3×12
Lat Pull Down’s to The Forehead 4×10

After the week I had with the other two lifts I didn’t expect much from my squats. Ironically things moved well, and I had much more in the tank. Next week the plan is to hit another week of 3’s but with wraps. I will be trying the new 4X4 wraps from Inzer.
McGill Big 3
Goblet Squats
Top set of 3
Box Squat close stance just above parallel 4×6 (365×6)
Belt Squat Marches 3×60 seconds
Ham Glute Raise 3×10

Danny Bellmore

Danny has been involved in powerlifting since 1994. The first swing at a career was short lived due to a major back injury in 1999 that resulted in a 3-level spinal (lumbar) fusion. At that point, he took a 10-year break. Avoiding the gym all together because his body, and back, just never felt right. In 2010, Danny went to handle a good friend at a local meet. That experience re-ignited the fire within and he was back under the bar, never looking back. Danny established an elite total at my first meet back in 2010 and then accomplished a win at the 2012 APF Masters Nationals. Through his win at the APF Masters, he was training using the Conjugate Method, but he wanted a change. He needed a change. Danny reached out to a friend who stated that Brian and the Samson Barbell crew had it going on. In the process of connecting with Brian, he has endured a few setbacks. During our initial discussions, he had torn my rotator cuff and labrum, along with a separated AC joint. The surgery did not "take" and just nine months later, he was back under the knife for a "do-over." During the healing process, he had lost feeling and strength in my right arm. Being pig headed, he waited and waited. My choice to remain stubborn backfired, and I was back in the OR for another spinal (cervical) fusion. Now healed, and a few years under Brian, Danny’s total has moved to 1871 @ 165. He doesn’t like to predict or talk about goals, but he wants more, and feels like he has more. Plans now are to compete at the Senior Nationals in Jacksonville, Florida this June.
