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.

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.
