This is my cousins husband.  We have always just called him "Big Jim".   Keep in mind he is 50yrs old.  He competes in world competitions for his age group and has won championships.  He was invited to a Redskins camp and was cut.

Thanks man, i've been trying hard for the past month and a half to get after it. The consistency is great! And I feel twice as strong as I have in the past. I have been greasing the groove when it comes to proper form, But my upper-middle back strength seems to allude me as my form breaks when I hit the concentric portion of my back squat. So to remedy it, i've been killing the rows and the "good mornings" 

 

form is important, but when you're going heavy, sometimes form goes out the window.  i focus more on form during warmup sets and cooldown sets

 

you are probably way farther along than me, so take that advice for what its worth

Sage advice! Thats how it seems to go anyway haha. Thanks for the advice though, I take it where I can get it. For me, my form is what keeps my joints healthy, I used to sling the steel, but it took a toll out on my elbow and my right knee. So, I cleaned up my form, worked the assistance work hard, and supplemented my diet with Omegas and vitamins/ glucosamine & condroitin and, Viola, joint pain gone! I'm going to invest in some knee wraps very soon.

those are timed lifts.   2 count lift, 4 count lower, or 4 count lift, 4 count lower, or 4 count lift, 2 count lower.

From what i've experienced, that explosion is hard to train. The elastic rebound that you have to teach the body just plain sucks. It just wrecks my triceps.

I was using T-bar rows for my back. I bulked up there quick.

Hey guys, I have a website that I frequent. Heres a link, it goes into detail about high intensity training in Powerlifting. I'm going to start implementing it after the rotation is up. http://www.lift.net/...r-powerlifting/
