I’m now finished with my offseason work as this was my last training session.
Normal warm-up: Always McGill big 3
1-arm KB swing
Mcgill chin: 25 singles
Rack row: up to 315×5
DOH shrug: 3×10 315
1-arm KB swing: 3×12
KB Goblet: 3×10
Piston squat: 3×5
Hammer curl: 3×10
1-Leg GM: 3×10
Bird dog: few sets
This wraps up the final week of offseason. I have not started (or will be) a precontest cycle in this good of shape, level of health, focus or strength level in a long time. Don’t confuse ‘strength level’ with me saying i’m stronger than ever but more so starting a peaking cycle this physically ready.
I’ll be taking this Saturday off from weight training and will be walking hills and doing some core work. Monday will be light bench assistance and then some light Squat/DL assistance on Wed. The precontest cycle will start the following weekend (in one week) with around 70% in gear.
all you need to know about the universe and the little “dipster” and the 100’s of starts in the universe!
I’m looking forward to pushing toward the Arnold. It will be March before we know it!
