6/9/12 Squat training

First day back training after competing in the Europa. This was the first time my recovery after a meet lasted a whole week! YAY RAW.


reverse hypers w/ a band (3×10) X rope abs (3×20)

glute-hams (3×10) X land mines (3×10)


Box squat 315 + 1 chain x3, 315+3 chains each side 8 sets of 3

Reverse band deadlift 545×3 (easy), 585×3 (too easy..), 605 5 sets of 3

I really love deadlifting raw, thats my favoritest lift by far 🙂

*Started really light seeing as I wasn’t sure where I would be coming in a Raw since the last time I lifed raw was at Auburn.


Archbacks 495 3 sets of 8

step ups (40lb each hand) x leg curls 3 sets of 8

*Warm down*

Sled Pull

All in all a really succesful first day back. Not hurting bad at all and it wasn’t so gosh awful hot… now time to stretch.


Lucas Irwin – Coan Phillipi Deadlift Routine

I decided to take a step away from physique competitions for a while and dive into deadlifting.  While I certainly love the actual training that is required for physique competitions, I dislike the lack of physical competition on the actual day of the show and cannot stand participating in something that is so subjective.  Therefore, I am moving to a much more cut and dry form of physical competition; the deadlift.  I will be competing in the 220lb weight class (at 6’2”) and competing unequipped with tested organizations.  USAPL will be my first.

I have been using the Coan Phillipi Deadlift Routine in preparation for this first meet.  I am 9 weeks into training at this point and will be restarting the routine in 2 weeks with new a new projected max.  I have had to make a lot of technique adjustments to compensate for my additional height, but I am constantly improving and happy with my progress thus far.  I am hoping to pull around 550 in Feb and be around 600lbs by the end of 2011.

Here is my 500lb pull from yesterdays training.
