Squat / Deadlift – Saturday 1/23/16

Coming off a deload everything felt great.  McGill Big 3 for a few rounds and a more than normal amount of sets with the bar were used to warm up.

Squats (low box, buffalo bar)

  • 2 x 5 w/ 150
  • 240 x 5
  • 290 x 5
  • 330 x 5
  • 360 x 5
  • 370 x 5

Sumo Deadlift (2″ blocks)

  • 225 x 5
  • 315 x 5
  • 405 x 5
  • 2 x 5 w/ 425

Deadlift felt a little sluggish, nothing to be concerned with.

Bench – Monday 1/25/16

Once my raw offseason work was completed I jumped into Byrd’s Inzer Bench Shirt to assist with the break in.  Warmup consisted of rotator work.

Bench

  • 2 x 8 w/ 140
  • 230 x 5 (1 board from here up)
  • 280 x 5
  • 320 x 5
  • 350 x 5

Top set felt great, a little more weight than I planned on taking but it moved easy.  I’ll adjust the rest of the weeks based on this one.

Added Inzer Shirt

  • 430 x 3 (3board)
  • 520 for a couple doubles off a 2 board
  • 520 for a couple singles off a 1 board

Bench Dips – 50 reps

Squat / Deadlift Accessory Work – Wednesday 1/27/16

McGill Big 3

McGill chins (alternating grip) – 14

D/B row – 3 x 15

Barbell Shrug – 8 reps of 315, 365, 405, 435

Pause squat (cambered bar) – 3 x 5 w/ 295

Single leg deadlift – 3 x 10

Jason Kowalewski

Jason Kowalewski is an up and coming raw powerlifter residing in Jacksonville, Florida where he trains with Team Samson. In his younger years he was a “gear head” who built his first drag car before obtaining a driver’s license. Within the last 6 years his primary focus has shifted from motorsports to powerlifting. Jason began training under Brian’s tutelage in February 2013. He was actually one of the initial test subjects, hence the name Lab Rat. Since then he has seen significant improvements on all lifts with his commitment to Brian and the 10/20/Life methodology. To date his best total is 1653.4lbs via 633.8lb squat, 435.4lb bench and 584.9lb deadlift at 242lbs.
