Since my post a few weeks ago, I’ve gotten on track. You can read about my come to Jesus here: Last log entry

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

The goal on this squat/DL day for squat was to work up to a little less than a last warmup straight weight and then a band set with less than an opener. For deads, continue working off the blocks belt-less.

Training
Predator Briefs
645×1
735×1 – added Gripper Knee wraps
825×1 – added LUP and wraps
935×1 – same
1025 – same

Dead – 4″ block pull
405×2
500×2
585×2
725×2 – this one got me a little goofy

Form pulls
405×1 – 3 singles

DONE.

Good session but it was time for a deload. I got done what I needed to. HUGE thank you to Keith, Adam and Jason K for their helping dialing me in last weekend! You have to have great people in your corner to do well, and I have just that.

Next squat/DL session will be a very light one and then it’s time for the home stretch. I’ll be pulling from the floor from here on out too and conventional.

Monday – bench day
It was time for some downtime and I took it on Monday…..

Floor press: 225×3 – 5 sets
Incline DB press: 5×10
Bench dip: 4×15
Cable press-down: 3×15
Band fly: 3×12

DONE. Felt good to get a pump and unload the body a little bit. Was much needed! I will be doing all the right thing this week to heal up!

Big weeks are coming, I have to be ready!
