I’m about 3.5 weeks out from the Arnold & 10.5 out from the RPS US Open and am knee-deep in peaking phase.

With a big week coming up, I elected to deload on Monday for bench.

Nothing special —

Normal warm-up which you can read about HERE McGill Big 3

Floor press: 225 – few sets of 3
Flat DB press: 3×10
Band fly: 3×15
Band skull: 3×15
Bench dip: 3×15

DONE. I had to hold back a little bit to not do too much. Easy day but it serves a purpose. Healing up and resting. I’ve been diligent about seeing my buddy Adam at LEAST once per week for ART, Graston and some adjustments here and there. I’ve also been good about getting body work (massage) every week too.

Wednesday – Squat and DL day Assistance

Normal warm-up

Then moved a bunch of gym equipment for a couple of hours to prep for this weekends SWOT. Keep an eye out for the lives stream on facebook as teamPRS preps for the Arnold! My plan is to take over 1100, bench some and pull around 800. I’m excited.
