As of right now, no. But I plan on getting my training sessions taped in the comming weeks. When my name gets put up on our wall in the weight room for achieving Ultimate Iron Man I will take a picture of that and put it up on here.

Basically at my school Iron Man works like this. There are four types of Iron Men, Iron Man, Super Iron Man, Ultimate Iron Man and Atlas Iron Worker.

For Iron Man, you multiply your body weight by 6 and then you have to reach that number with your four core lifts. Upon completion of this, you are rewarded the opportunity to buy a shirt.

Super Iron Man works a little differently. There is a set weight for each lift that you need to achieve (they are currently slipping my memory) Upon completion of this, they again reward you the opportunity to buy a shirt.

Ultimate Iron Man is where the good rewards come into play. For this, You must bench 240 one time. Power Clean 220 one time. Deadlift 450 one time and Parallel Squat 330 one time. After completion of this, your name gets put up on the wall with all the other great lifters of the school's past. T

he names start back in 72 or 73, when the school was founded and continue up trhough now 09. Sicne I was the first to achieve Ultimate Iron Man in 09, my name will be the first under the new banner.

As for Atlas Iron Worker...No one has ever accomplished it. You must bench 350. Squat 500. Deadlift 575 and Power Clean 275. As I said, no one ahs gotten it yet. Some have come close, but they havn't gotten all four of the lifts.

PL? What does that stand for? And the 155 for 12 is for the straight leg deadlift. It encorporates different leg muscles than the regular deadlift.

For my regular core workouts I alternate between two charts, a power chart and a endurance chart. As you would guess, each chart contains a different workout for your max (the chart ranges from 100-600 pounds) and each chart focuses on either power or endurance. The power chart for my deadlift looks like this

300lbs 6 times
400lbs 8 times
450lbs 2 times
400lbs 6 times
350lbs 8 times

And then upon completion of that section of the chart you move to the next max. It is a very good workout for your core because it allows you to focus on building your endurance and power and it has signifficantly incresed how much weight I can push around.

Powerlifting.

Fair enough, I thought you just meant that that was your regular workout you did all the time.

Antway I'll keep an eye to this

Thanks, I figured I should share my dedication with the world. Hopefully I end up somewhere after it is all said and done

Whats with the rep scheme? That seems kind of odd with your goals in mind. With a 500 lb squat you should just work on explosive stuff because your legs are strong enough to get a takedown on just about anyone. 200 calf raises? It just seems like your workout does no match your goal. But those numbers are insane man, good work. a 500 lb squat and 600 lb deadlift at 184 is pretty elite, you should get out there and compete

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Keep up the good work. You have set a standard after the first post.

I've never heard of a belt-system MMA class. Which is actually a good idea, now that more and more people are joining the beloved sport. We have a Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert class, however its very subjective and some people will get promoted to the next class, and won't fare well so its a tough decision. However, belt system would help out with set protocol/standards for such levels. Best of luck to you.

I really need to be more faithful with posting. I feel like I'm letting you guys down.

Anyways, I should have a video up soon of deadlifting. I have a competition tommorrow at school. In our weight training class, we have a different competition about every other week and this week happens to be the deadlift.

Since I weighed in at 180 I figured I would do around 500 lbs since you have to do the lift for 5 reps for the lift to count and then whoever has the best positive ratio (take the wight your doing for the comp and subtract it by your weight) and that is your "score". So, I was warming up with about 350 and then just decided to throw on four fourty-five pound plates on each side on a seventy-five pound hex bar totaling 525.

So for the comp I'm going to 525 X 5 for a +345.. solid enough for first place. I will find out tommorrow what second place is but my friend says he is going to record me doing the lift so as soon as he does I will post it
