I will look up Nsuns. 531 also keeps track of your days off and starts you back where you leave off. At 5'11" I have a long femur, so I don't have the ideal proportions for squats but I love squats. Bench on the other hand has always been tough for me and I have not made alot of progress on bench over the years.

I do take fats but I don't track my macros. My guess is I take about 140 g of protein, but carbs, and fats I am not so sure of.

I used to do JKD so I am quite familiar with the concepts of boxing, and few other styles. Never competed though but I wasn't that great anyways. I gave it up when I seriously hurt my back after a Thai Boxing sparring session.

I must have the shittiest genetics as I trained for years, and spent countless hours reading and researching on what exercises, and what supplements worked and still didn't get massive. And for years I worked out 5 days a week religiously. Now I am lucky if I get my 4 days in.

My PC considers my levels on the low end of the normal range. After years of keeping an eye on my t-levels he has finally agreed to start me on trt, albeit at 50 mg/week. But that's very low....

On JM 531 your main lifts combined with BB were a killer. I made so much progress even with slow recovery that I hated to give it up. NSuns sounds like it would be a ticket for me.

Any of you guys familiar with Triphasic training? Book/Program by Carl Dietz.

It focuses on the 3 types of movement
Eccentric
Isometric
Concentric

It can be applied to various training methods. I am considering giving it a go.

Combat vet, lower back and leg injury! Instead of making such a bone head reply ask! I served in OEF 1 and had lower body injuries. I still think a 525 deadlift and 495 raw lift is good for 51 year old! I will post my last Raw bench if I can find a way to post it! Donít hate just congratulate 1 MoreMod!

No you said "I'm going to call Bullshit!" was your reply. I have a video, but it's a mov. clip from phone so when I try to post it, it say invalid attachment. I tried to convert, but cannot. Do you have a way I can convert to JPEG? Send your email and I will send clip to you.

So this week is de-load week for me. So humiliating!

In the grand scheme of things, I know it's good for me and prepares me for my next round of programmed lifts....but it really hurts your ego when you are using weights that are about 60%-70% less than what you normally do.

Had some new guys show up in the gym this morning while doing my bench de-load set. 155lbs of AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible).

I stopped at rep #28 just because I ran out of steam and was getting bored...right at the same time they came in the back room to see me finish maybe the last 6 reps at that weight and struggling a little.

Bet they were thinking...man that old man is weak!

My training partner that I have spoken off is kind of in the same situation. In one way....it actually helps him competitively.

He got in the way of a lawn mower when he was around 4 years old, and really chewed his leg up. Multiple surgeries throughout the years, and he has one leg that has a steel rod that runs the length of it as they never could repair his knee.

So since he can't train legs, he always done upper body. Now I have mentioned to you about his genetics. even without training legs a day in his life, his legs are bigger and more muscular than most people in the gym squatting each week. He typically walks around at 210-220 and ripped, but drops down to 198 for his weight class. He then usually enters his weight class and the two weight classes above him as he can move up...just not down.

He learned a long time ago that he could score a much higher payday that way as he pretty much dominates his weight class and the others above it.

But if he could train his legs and had full function, he would be 240+ easily. I am talking one in a million type of genetics.

But he currently has an unofficial best bench of 540lbs. I was there and spotted him. When you can routinely rep 4 plates on the bench, you are an elite in my book.

Guy has 22" upper arms, 18.5" forearms,...hell his wrist is probably 9" around. And his hands are big enough to palm the 8lb medicine ball in our gym. But the kicker...a 30" waist.

I will crop out his face and post a pic just to show you what genetics (this is 98% of it) and very hard work will do for you. Guy trains with an intensity like you have never seen, and consistently for over 25 years. He's our age and still considered the "King of the Hill" in his sport that everyone is trying to knock off.

And before anyone thinks the wrong thing....he is "Natural". His sport is nationally tested by all the doping agencies and he has never failed once even though he gets accused all of the time.

No...I don't have a "man crush" on him......but if you are serious about working out and just getting started, get with a guy like this like I was fortunate enough to do. Been training with him for a long time, and he always comes up with ways to kill me in the gym.

Did 1105 total tonight after doing 3x10 pretty heavy before each lift. Kind of random workout but think I'm close to 1200 with that.

Nice!

1200 is a short term goal for you know as you probably already hit it. Time to start thinking about the next goal!

You're tougher than that.

Although I know the feeling. Never really suffered a serious injury aside from Tennis Elbow.

Plus the program we are running has me doing plenty of "warm-up" and Working sets to get "in the groove" before the heavy stuff starts.

SO....now I hope I haven't jinxed myself!!!

Well my goal is still 1200 then stay there or move up slowly. I just dont wanna fall.off and need to get it back. I've already been thru torn ACL and MCL and have no meniscus so glad to be back from that alright but will have some gnarly arthritis at some point probably.

Sorry to hear that man....That sucks. I didn't know that.

Hell...that makes the 1200 all the more impressive.

Maybe once you hit your goal...you can change gears a little. Replace your deadlifts with Rack-Pulls. Pull from as low a level as you can that minimizes knee involvement, and still get the benefit of strengthening all of the upper back musculature that deadlifts give.

Plus since you are pulling from a higher position, you get to "stroke" your ego as the weight you use tends to go up pretty quickly.
