Video x Flexing - The Conjugate Method (Westside Barbell) Training Log Week 5

Powerlifter Deadlifting Raw Powerlifting Training Log

Raw powerlifting. Max effort and accessory days from June 17 - 21. I started a new diet geared towards maximum performance during training. These were some of my best training days in months. I had a lot more energy with no supplement usage and did not have to combat lethargy or itis. Carbohydrate timing and loading really works for me.

I've cut out dynamic effort days because I looked at old training logs when I was at my strongest on the Westside Barbell Method, and I never did speed days. I would just do my warm-ups and reps explosively. I was also training in a powerlifting garage gym which helps but after this weeks training, I think it'll work out the same if not better because I've learned quite a bit over the past 5 years and train smarter these days.

Here's a post workout / training meal this past week. Two cheeseburgers with spinach and spicy lime mayo dip.
