1 Week Out

This was my last training week prior to competition, next week I’ll be resting up good and then Sunday I plan on fucking up some shit (and hopefully lifting some weights in the process).

I plan on opening my Squat with 505, and having something around 550 as my 2nd attempt. I’ll open my bench with 300 and see where it goes from there, my bench plans are kinda vague since I’m not used to the bench shirt just yet. For deadlift I’ll open up with 505 too, depending on where my energy levels are. Definitely plan on hitting PRs on all my lifts.

I always get these wicked bruises on me arm after chest day.

Tomorrow Feb 18th

Got a killer squat routine in my mind to try out tomorrow. I’m gonna be in my squat suit straps up, and what I have in mind is 8-10 sets of about 400lbs + 150lbs in chain weight off of a low box. 

I’m pondering if to do touch and go or pause on the box, I’ll see how my warmups feel and act accordingly.

Won’t be wearing dem knee wraps either.

Dat Slingshot

Mark Bell’s Slingshot is insane, I ordered myself the reactive slingshot (which is the weakest one meant for working reps instead of overload), and today was the first time using it, benched 275x3x3 no problem, no shoulder or elbow pains. After doing that I overloaded using 3 boards and 315lbs for 2 sets of singles.

Order yourself a slingshot NOW. The wristwraps are also fucking incredible.

4 weeks out

Man 4 weeks out to my first competition. 3 weeks left of actual training. Last week went relatively well, I deadlifted 500x2setsx3reps pretty easily. 

The best part about training for competition is that your weaknesses are brought into the light. My bench is weakest at the bottom, my squat’s weakness is speed, and my deadlift’s weakness is breaking inertia. 

Really excited to work on that after competition, but for now my eyes are focused on March 10th. 

Monday I squatted with my straps down, did 455x4reps, wanted to do 5, but man the fucking suit was so tight, almost passed out, my muscles weren’t fatigued, just my breath was gone and the tightness of the suit didn’t help. The funny thing is that I can probably do 455x4 easily raw, I just can’t use gear for shit.

Squat Day

Gonna go for a 465x5 today, straps down w/ belt and wraps. Hope I don’t break anything.
