Here is me smashing an easy 150 pr. squat. It was a piece of cake that I felt like I could do a little more but I thought I would end my squat session right there so I won’t hog the squat rack, lol.
This time I smartened up and learned how to properly warm up before I max out. It felt great and it was easy lifting a 150 lb. squat. Ya know, if I started off the sets heavy and doing multiple reps, I wouldn’t have been able to lift that 150 lbs. So glad I smartened up and learned how to warm up better. Before maxing out the heavy ones, that’s what you want to do… lift light weights to semi-heavy but only doing a few reps so you won’t fatigue yourself. You want to save yourself ’til the very end.
I’m planning on doing the same when I max out on deadlift this weekend so I can hopefully smash a 300 lb. deadlift that I want to get.
I think the squat form in this video looks pretty good, though. I think the depth is good enough to get 3 white lights. I won’t max out on squats again for a long while. Not until meet day on March 30th but I’m thinking of challenging myself and plan on giving 155 or 160 a try. I probably will. That’s what powerlifting is all about is being able to challenge yourself. If you miss a lift, who cares. Not the end of the world. I’ll probably end up giving 160 lb. squat a try and I’m still going to do strength training up until meet day so I can hopefully hit that number.
I know I’m going to do real great on March 30th powerlifting meet at Albany Strength and can’t freakin’ wait! I really am working hard for that one!
The nice compliments on my bodybuilding physique just keeps coming as I just got another one earlier today at the gym. I was in the locker room standing on the weight scale with my shirt off and some dude was looking at me and he simply said, “I don’t mean to bother you but you’re getting huge. You get huge each time I see you in here”. I just responded back with a simple, “Thank you. I work really hard”.
These are complete strangers giving me random compliments on my physique. These are the kind of people you want to get bodybuilding feedback from. You want to get feedback by people you don’t know. You don’t want to get feedback from family and friends about bodybuilding ’cause all they’re gonna do is give you positive feedback no matter what. If you want honest and true feedback, get them from complete strangers. When you’re getting a lot of compliments from complete strangers at random places, that’s when you know you’re getting successful in bodybuilding.
My whole goal in bodybuilding is to get huge as possible. Not overweight huge but muscular huge if you know what I mean by that. I want to look like those guys you see in the action movies and in pro wrestling. Yeah, I know people are going to start screaming “steroids” just like they accuse ALL successful bodybuilders of steroids but I really do believe it’s possible to get huge without juicing up. To get huge in bodybuilding, all it pretty much takes is working hard, staying consistent and eating clean most of the time. Do all three of those and YOU WILL get huge. If you want to look like a young Arnold Schwarzenegger back in his Olympia days, you can get there. If you want to look like guys such as Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth, Jason Momoa and guys such as those, you can.
I keep getting compliments on my body all the time and it feels good, really. That’s what keeps motivated to keep going in the gym. When you get a lot of compliments everywhere you go, it means that people are giving you respect. If you want respect around people in bodybuilding and weightlifting, it is not begged for. It is earned. Keep working hard, don’t give up. The more you keep working, the more people will be proud of ya and everybody around you will give you respect. Hard work in the weight room after all these years is definitely paying off for sure.
I love weightlifting. It’s a huge passion of mine. Before I started bodybuilding, I used to be scared to take my shirt off in front of everyone but now I’m not anymore. Bodybuilding taught me to love my body more. Like always, I don’t think you’ll ever see me on a bodybuilding stage… I just want the look is all. I want to look huge and nasty. Look intimidating to everyone. Having a muscular body is awesome and I’m loving it. It is definitely a life changer for sure!
