10-ish weeks until the Arnold, which is March 7, 2015.
Week 1 of precontest starts this weekend and I’m excited.
Notice the title of the log.
This is NO DISRESPECT to lifters like current and former 242 greats Juha, Panora, Hoff or ANYONE at all. It’s in reach and I want the total record, especially since I was pretty close a few months back. I’ve actually chased it on and off for the better part of 10 years.
I’m not predicting shit, calling my shot or anything like that. The fact is that I’m pushing that 2700+ at 242. Will I get it? Let’s see. I’ve hit it quite a few times at 275 while not being 100%. Either way, I’m on the path toward it, I just hope I get there, and will log pretty much everything about the process. This will also keep my accountable to make sure I’m doing what I need to be doing.
Happy new year!
I’m still heavier than I want to be and ate much more than I should have! This will settle down over the next couple of weeks!

Very light and easy day. I start my precontest week 1 tonight. This will give me about 8 training weeks to get ready for the Arnold.
Tonight is around 770 on the squat for doubles and 560 on the dead for the same. Bench is the same as dead 560.
Really looking forward to getting some work in.
Body feels pretty crappy right now. I don’t know why, probably because I’ve slapped on about 12lb! That’s probably it!
