Chaos And Bang- Injuries, Training For Meets, And Sundry Bullshit

Last weekend, Paul Carter from Lift-Run-Bang and I discussed a bunch of bullshit on the phone.  Thereafter, I flew to Utah, broke into the NSA's new, highly illegal, bullshit, shitting-on-the-Constitution spy supercomputer and stole the record of our conversation after teabagging every one of the soulless, freedom-hating motherfuckers who work there.  Paul uploaded it right after my return, but I was busy fighting ninjas sent by Rick Santorum to prevent me from buttfucking my girlfriend, so I added an intro to one up him.  You can listen to it if you're bored or curious.  Enjoy.


We cover:


  • RUM5 and shit I would have done differently in training for it
  • How I changed his training after the meet
  • Injuries Paul and I have been battling through
  • Going with instinct in both eating and training
  • Balancing training intensity with training frequency and volume 
  • How to get women with dark chocolate and fried chicken.  Literally.






Why would anyone want this to be illegal? This gif is the greatest thing since WWII.  The Christian right is worse than black metal.


Incidentally, we're thinking about doing a recorded weekly show that will likely cover more porn, books/movies/gaming, and politics than training.  Let me know in the comments if it's worth doing, and what you'd like us to discuss.  This one was pretty catch as catch can, but we're thinking of making them a bit more structured.

  1. Good shit, Jamie.
    Definetely keep on recording.

    You mention you´ve been focusing a lot on your squats. Have you considered a Smolov-ish approach to training it? I know you despise percentages and pre-determined WOs, but I mean squatting heavy as fuck in a variety of rep ranges with high volume 4x a week.

  2. I've considered it, but the volume on Smolov's actually lower than what I'm already doing. I am toying with the idea, however.

  3. Now that´s interesting. Mind sharing how a week of squatting is looking like?

    1. Since I figured out how to train around my patellofemoral tendonitis, it's:
      Mon: Partial squats from various heights for about 45 mins of 5-1 reps
      Tues: Low box squats 5-10 sets of 1-15 reps (I've been repping out a bit with 315, and I sit into it fully and rock back before ascending to slacken my legs)
      Thurs: Partial squats from a different height
      Sat: Low Box squats

  4. I am a big smolov fan (when the time is right). My advice is only run the base cycle use a very slightly inflated 1rm. Be sure you bury the squat depth and do zero/light single leg for acc. Eat tons of pizza. Just my 2c (i squat a lot too, not a random jerk off). Love the blog, cheers.

    1. Why do you suggest running the base only?

  5. Go for it. I'd listen to something every week.

    1. Looks like we'll record the first one this weekend. I'm reviewing the Raid, we're discussing some questions he's gotten on his site, and will probably discuss porn at some length.

  7. Jamie I have a question that might spur a nice discussion, if you guys are up for it, it might turn out to be some good shit, or maybe I'm just opening up a can of worms (haha):

    You once posted an old squat workout in reference to how your training evolved to your now general guidelines. You explained you weighed a buck 32 but still managed to squat triple bodyweight for a double (according to that particular post, although you explained it wouldn't always be the exact same weights every time). Is there a correlation to how much weight you're actually lifting, and muscle and strength gains?

    Formulated differantly: Does a triple bodyweight squat at for example 132, build strength/mass as optimal at say 200 (same structure/bodyfat)?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Interesting question. We'll work that in.

  9. Fuck yes to the weekly show!

  10. Jamie, in the show can you discuss your favourite cod game?

    1. Definitely- Paul plays as well, so we can make something out of that.

  11. Definitely in for a weekly show (I'd prefer something I can read, but talking is good, too). Also in for the source of that gif...anyone?

    1. The opening song is Dukes of the Kumatai- Balls Deep in that Turtle, and the closing song is Cuz 7 Ate 9... I think the song is Titties Make It Awkward.

  14. Should you do a weekly show? FUCK YEAH! Probably the best idea you've had and here's why:

    1) I don't know how badly I'm being fucked over by people ranging from the government to dumb ass guru internet warriors that try to tell me that doing high bar squats are bad for your knees until I see a pornographic picture of 3 women fucking over a bar stool and 3 well worded paragraphs by possibly one of the smartest people whose ever blogged on the internet. Run on sentence? Who gives a fuck

    2) The very thought of CnP making a live show pumps enough blood and testosterone to give me an erection so hard that I could go out into the wild and kill a caribou from it due to blunt force trauma. So much testosterone that I would in fact go to the gym and squat 50 lbs more then my PR squat. Would you deprive your fellow man of a 50 lbs increase squat? I think not! Do the show.

    3) You enlighten the average dumb ass garbage eating American such as myself and make us do something that is scorned by society and government alike: Think. Ever since I've been reading your blogs I've decided to break away from the muscle magazines and actually invest my time into reading books and actually learning how my body works. Not how Jay Cutler or Ed Coan do it -- how I do it. The results from me experimenting with different training concepts and diets have brought me from 294 lbs to 239.5 lbs and a bench press of 330 (I lifted weights like the average ass hole bodybuilder) to 415. There are 7 billion people on this planet and if half of them were as awesome as Jamie Lewis I say this planet wouldn't be as fucked as it is now.

    It is your civil obligation to spread your views like a catholic rabbit hopped up on enough coke to support a village of columbian coco farmers spreads it's sperm. Maybe that way you can impregnate the readers brain and maybe that brain will give birth to the idea to stop being a fuck hole. Who knew that the smartest American would come in the form of a 180 lbs gym rat who out squats a good 85% of the population on Earth? Weird how life works lmao.

    P.S. -- Never stop posting porn.

    4. 85% of the population on Earth? That's not saying anything at all. That's saying there's still over a billion people that can squat more than Jamie.

    5. @ Alexandro -- Bite me.

      @ Walter J White -- I've learned more from this blog then I have the 800 pages of bullshit that is Arnold Schwarzenegger's encyclopedia to modern day bodybuilding or w/e (Learned a little bit but nothing special. Learning is learning, Walter. It doesn't matter if you get the information from middle school or Harvard, 2+2=4. This blog just sheds some light on what to look for. I just got a lot out of the blog. No need to get butt hurt.

      @ Imperator -- Is it possible that I just picked a random number in my head? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw! I'm sure that 85% was supposed to be taken literally. I thought I wrote 95 but ahhh well.

      Delete
    6. Hey, Walter -- I'm just saying his advice worked well for me. I'm not trying to suck up or anything of the sort. I'm just saying I've appreciated what he's done, mmmkay? judging by that picture on your page you've been squatting big numbers. You have a teacher that helped put you on the right path? Well that's just what Jamie did for me. He just says to experiment and don't be a pussy and that's what I did so I just wanted to say thanks.

      If it came off as me sucking up then that wasn't my intent.

    7. I'm still fairly uncomfortable with the idea of having fans, haha. In any event, Paul and I are on for tomorrow night. It won't be a livestream, but if there's enough interest we might try that. I've no idea how we'll do it, but given the fact that we're both intelligent people, I'm sure we'll figure it out.

    8. I'd just like to add to the observation that this guy is a cock sucker. And so is his mother.

    9. Oh hey, Rant -- Do me a favor (though you'd probably do it anyways)? Fuck yourself slowly. In case you're looking for something to fuck yourself with I bet you could just go into one of your two dad's rooms and use one of their butt plugs. Or you can just go do your midnight ritual which is shoving a cucumber up your ass while attaching a high powered vacuum cleaner to your scrotum.

      Oh and by the way -- Fuck you! I own your sorry ass you Skankosaures-rex. Feel free to jerk off with industrial sand paper while your boyfriend Charlie slips his dick in and out of your mouth.

    10. If your mother isn;t a cock-sucker then you're lucky to have been born.

      But Big E is just trolling and making faux-freudian slips in the hope someone will bring them up directly.

      Delete
    11. Let me get this straight...I'm telling Jamie Lewis that I'm appreciative of what he does and then there is a horde of dipshit E-Warriors telling me that my mother sucks cock (seriously? Are you people in the 6th grade or something?) and I'm the troll? Lmao. I can't help but to laugh at you. It's dumb ass comments like this that start my day off on a good note hahaha. It is ALWAYS nice to see another human being that is much much dumber then I am.

      Blobb I bet you're the kind of social reject on planet Earth that finds a person like Jamie Lewis and tries to fondle his balls in hopes that he'll respond back to you. Something tells me that when CnP responds to your post that you get all giddy inside and think of yourself as 'one swell guy'! I assure you that you are an idiot. You may not be an idiot, but you sure as hell are fooling me. Seems like people are just mad because I actually used his advice in the weight room and it paid off instead of just jack off to the gifs and porn he posts lmao. Ahh well.

      Alright -- I'm done here. No need to bang my head up against the wall when the quality of human being that comments back is perhaps a 9th grade child who plays to much X-Box. Jamie, do the show and I will watch it. As for everyone else! Please feel free to go fuck yourselves.

  15. Its worth your while, I hope you can source the porno i watched the other day and discuss the direction etc. This lad performed a duck and dip from one girls ass to another girls mouth while the other girls head was buried in the other other girls cunt.

  16. Any chance of some porn audio on the show? Just listening to you talk about it is rather like you posing pictures of yourself mimicking Alexia Cage's actions instead of a photo of her.

  18. Maybe discuss the use of performance enhancing drugs in strengths sports - like why it's accepted in some sports and not in others. For example in weightlifting where it's not possible to medal at the Olympics without drug use, even though it's forbidden.
    Also, do you get high right before you write?

    1. Ah, we'll actually cover that because Mendes, fucktard that he is, is banned.

      In re the second bit, nope. I'm not much of a fan of weed.

    2. Woah, Pat Mendes caught a ban? Well, fuck all...

    3. You think he's a fucktard for using or for getting caught?

    4. Getting caught. If you think any of the top guys in Oly aren't using, you're either insane or incredibly naiive.
