    • layne, what i was saying earlier about deadlifts was what is the best way to continually increase poundages and get them high for deads like u did.

      I am currently doing 230 pounds with controlled slow form, i would love one day to deadlift 300 pounds and more but worry about injury.

If you want to go out afterwards and have like some chicken or steak with a potato/rice & a salad then I think that's fine. But if you go off & eat pizza & cookies, you will be in bad shape to try and be ready for your 2nd show.

            what are your plans for competition in the future? Are you doing any guest posings? do you do seminars?
            Not competing until 2009 most likely. Probably no guest posings... not at least until I start prepping. I've had a few offers but I want to come in really really good shape... if you come in not great shape you run the risk of never getting hired again. I will be doing some seminars. Have one tentatively planned for early 2008 in michigan.

              I think wave training is the way to go. For example if you are currently doing 230 you would do this

              week 1: 135
              week 2: 170
              week 3: 200
              week 4: 225
              week 5: 240
              week 6: 245

              then repeat the cycle this time you would do something like
              week 1: 145
              week 2: 180
              week 3: 210
              week 4: 235
              week 5: 250
              week 6: 255

              etc etc etc

              This has always worked for me and kept me maintaining consistant progress

                  Keep us informed, I live in Michigan. It would be great to go to your seminar.

                  • hey layne,

                    been trying your rotating bulk, cut model. my question is how much does your weight fluctuate during the cut phase?

                    the scale doesnt look like its moved during the first week but i think i do see some signs of increased vascularity. i am happy enough with the strength, just not sure if i expected too much out of the cut phase.

                      I don't understand, are you saying you should be able to increase your deadlift poundage by 110 pounds in 6 weeks?

                      • Layne,

                        not sure if asked but what are your thoughts on training logs , do you feel they are a must and should be used regulary, do you use one , or just go by feel and instinct and feel that training logs should be used for beginners and people with bad memory? just curious why people praise them so much , i mean is a workout a year ago going to effect the workout you do today? as far as sets/reps / exercises

                          please read all the posts... he said he was at 230 right now. so in wave training you back off and build up to your max and then over it over 5-6 weeks then back off & do it again.

                          I'm not trying to be a jerk but it's tough enough for me to answer all the quesitons I get via PM & email... I don't mind doing it, but it's nice if people also read all the posts as well

                          thanks

                            I don't think they are a must. I think they can help motivate you some by having your goals on paper; but I can remember most of my maxs for certain rep ranges on various lifts

                              what was your pro/carb fat intake during the bulk and what is it during the cut?
