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.[column type=”one-half”][image type=”none” float=”none” src=”https://www.powerrackstrength.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/UltimateBack-e1450193297843.jpg” link=”true” href=”https://www.powerrackstrength.com/product/ultimate-back-fitness-and-performance-5th-edition-2014/” title=”Ultimate Back Fitness” target=”blank” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover”][/column] [column type=”one-half” last=”true”][image type=”none” float=”none” src=”https://www.powerrackstrength.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Back-Mechanic.png” link=”true” href=”https://www.powerrackstrength.com/product/back-mechanic-the-step-by-step-mcgill-method-to-fix-back-pain/” target=”blank” info=”tooltip” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”Sample”][/column]
Normal warm-up which you can read about HERE McGill Big 3
Little bit of a different and moderate approach to this day. The way the weeks fell I had to take a little bit of a lighter week as I’m having some of the team over to train heavy this weekend. This coming weekend marks 3 weeks out and where I usually peak, then taper down the training intensities.
So only last warm-ups today!
Predator Brief: 650, 750
Added LUP and full gear: 850
935 ish – last warmup – this moved well but never fast enough.
Added Fusion Dler
635 – last warm-up. Moved well, but to me this can’t move fast enough.
I did a little more core work and called it a day.
Things went pretty much to plan. I plan on deloading today (I made this decision earlier today) for bench and will take some benches Saturday with the team if I feel good. Big week coming up, so I will be taking it easy as much as possible.
This diss is always a good reminder: Someone else is always getting kicked harder than you are currently.
