Thanks joejoe22   for the support.

110223 First time giving Russian Squat routine a try(in powerlifting club) :ibsquatting:
Target Set: 160-166 @ 6 X 2
60kg 1x5
90kg 1x5
115kg 1x5
135kg 1x2
155kg 1x1.7
165kg failed
Set 1 - 165kg 1x2 (Use knee wrap)
Set 2 - 165kg 1x2 (felt better)
Set 3 - 165kg 1x2 (Pok Sir is spoting me, low enough for 2nd rep)
Set 4 - 165kg 1x1 (barely made it
Set 5 - 160kg 1x2
Set 6 - 160kg 1x2

I spend so much time on the squat rank, I don think i can repeat this in a regular public gym...
and after discussing with adarq, i am goign to give smolov jr waveloading routine a try.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iod2t6ZQjTk
April 2nd is the competition, the question  now is, I own a Superior squat suit Size 40, Coach think that i max out at 200kg only.
To break Hong Kong record, i need to squat 210kg. Coach suggested me to try Super Centurion advance squat suit.  I have tough time fitting myself in a size 40, Coach found me a size 42 borrwed some another lifter.  I squated twice in that suit, very tough and very strong.  I probably do not have enough time to order a size 42 from USA.  After some internet searching, i found a place with size 42 in WA state. Able to Ship to NYC (My friend) in 3 days, and my friend able to ship to me in another 2 days.

Option:
1. Size 40, tight tight fit, avaliable in Lifting club
2. Size 42, more lose, risking shipping oversea with expected delay.
3. Squat with what i have and try my best to get over 207kg.

I still have to Bench with Suit, and I still have to Deadlift, I tried Wide stane last week and It felt great even when i am Deadlifitng raw with 361lbs.  I need to Train more.... NO time....

Stupid Shanhai businese trip on march 15-17.

Coach/Dr.Yip is teaching me how to Warm up for the Powerlifting competition!

After spending like 15 min trying to Squez myself in the size 40 Super Centurion suit. It fit like Mad tight Fit. All the meat in my leg is squzzed out like an Egg attached to my thigh.  At the end, I am not able to squat in the size 40, it is just too strong and tight for me.
I end up squating in size 42.  Confirmed and I placed order of the size 42 on the same night.

110322 Stupid Gym at Shang Hai Hotel (four points by sheraton shanghai pudong)
So i brought my belt my wrist guard, and my Suit in my tiny luggage.
Thinking that a hotel gym must have some Barbell and plates... (beside the evil smith machine that I expected)

End up the gym is crap, the max dumbell they have is 20lbs.  :pissed:
I am suppose to be Deadlifting.... wtf....

I end up doing
- arm curl 20lbs lol
- Front arm raise 15lbs
- Fly 15lbs
- Bench press with smith machine... 135lbs.
- Squat with smith machine... 165lbs

What a waste... of effort carrying that heavy belt. :pissed:

110401 Story Typing and English Translation Test

The following is a sharing I typed and posted in the local basketball/sneaker fans site  as well as my facebook.  I guess will translate it and include it in my Journal also.

????????????? 2011-03-31, 03:21 PM
 My Basketball Training Transformation Story 2011-03-31, 03:21 PM


Basketball is definitely one of my best friend; although often, I leave basketball behind for various reasons, reason like too busy with university, too busy with girl etc... Anyhow, whenever I got dejected in life... usually from a bad relationship breakup, I will dig out my basketball and play as hard as possible (due to too much spare time)


A day in 2006, I suddenly felt that basketball is so hard to master, and I suddenly remember my childhood dream, Slamdunk!


From there on, non stop web research, training and attempt to find method to train vertical...
The world wide web allow me to meet up with all kind of vertical interested people, young kid, 35yrs old middle age, professional trainer, I had meet them all...


Over the years, I had seen young kid going from barely rim touching to slamming the ball; I had seen middle age dude quit training due to new born baby, and of cause many many others who just quit in between...


Vertical Jump, is quite a complicated subject, especially to those who genetically lacking the ability.  How to train for power, at the same time train for explosiveness?  With torque of a truck and also the quickness of a sportcar...


From a book named Vertical Jump Bible, I learnt about Plyometric and Powerlifting; Training and researching day by day, even though I had make progress here and there, but I usually reach a plateau very soon...


Self research training is like a guy trying to find an exit in a dark room; the goal is clear, but lack of clear direction.  Although not sure if training method is most efficient; some time performance even decrease during training; the progress is just like using your own body as test subject in a lab...


Anyhow, I can only believe that I am moving forward... and continue to train!


Gradually, I am getting stronger and stronger, the weight in Powerlifting keep increasing to a caution point.  Since muscle developing speed is much faster the joint, it is relatively easy to get injury, and of cause I had injured myself before.  Out of the blue, I discovered a government registered powerlifting club .  Give them a call, and an old grandpa with a loud voice suggested me to give them a try.  Went there and only a few dudes show up, powerlifting is not a popular sport to begin with.  I told him my goal: jump higher, I am here to squat and Deadlift.


Just like that, my journey in powerlifting begins.  Honestly, the coach here is experienced, international standard, although this sport lack of popularity and not many athletes involve, I still believe, it is not easy to be No. 1...

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Non stop training, Non stop learning, Non stop improving, I am starting to be a Squat specialist.  One day. I suddenly reach new height in my squat stat - I am able to squat 2x bodyweight!

??????????????????????????????????????????????
From the web, athletes able to squat 2x BW  are not really not that special, I suppose it still can be consider as a standard for entry level professional athletes.

?????????
Am I an Athlete?


I started to think, could I leave my name in the local Powerlifting record book? I really did squat day and night!  Although I love basketball a great deal, but it is definitely impossible for me to get respected from the basketball community, but with powerlifting, it is possible.  I check the local record, my category's record is 207kg (455lbs)! Good god, that is mad, like I said before, it is not easy being no.1... (My record at that time is 382lbs)


The above was about one and a half years ago; although I felt that the local record is so far away and hard to reach, but inside my heart... a little bit of me still believe that it is possible....


Non stop training, non stop learning, non stop improvement.. is all because I want to Dunk...

????????????????????????????????????????!
A year pass, I got higher in vert, but is still far from dunking... instead, I am squating at a new level again!


I decided to join the local powerlifting competition this year. ( I joined for fun 2 years ago)


Day by day, time passes so fast, I train so hard as if I am going against the clock.  The life of a athlete is short, I know if I have a chance to break the record this year, next year will be a whole different story.  The competition day is getting close, but my improvement rate is slowing down... I am stressed and I can not take my mind off training ...


On my last week of training (it is actually 2 week before the meet, as the last week is meant for rest), because I still got a business trip to go, I know I don't have much time left, I give it all out that night and attempt the record breaking lift...


It is this day, I made history...I break the local record!


Since that, I had 2 other training attempt at that weight, once failed and once successful...

?????????????????????????????????????...
There are still 2 days left before the meet, and many friends of mine know about me trying to break some record, and my family...they all support me...

?????????....??????
?????????10???????????????????Believe in yourself?
???????????????????????????????????
Because today is the 2nd last day before the meet (full rest day), so I spend my time documenting this story for myself.


Bad Grammar indeed, if you actually read up to this point, I did really appreciate your time...

P.S. ????????????????????????????????
P.S. At the point, I want to thanks my wife for her support, Training day by day take up so much time which I could had be spending it with her instead...

?????????????:
At last, here attached a video clips about my final test ,1 week before the meet:
