Cool song ^^[wa-wps]
Buy some swag^^
I just finished competing in the XPC Arnold Finals where I didn’t have a great showing and missed a few lifts. This left me in Second place overall.
I’ll be going head to head for 5K against Jimmie P, Tory P and Hopefully Matt M. Not sure if he can make it though.
BTW – I don’t suggest jumping right back into training after a tough meet BUT I needed to get to work on a few things named below.
To be honest, I’m a little beat up feeling. I slept on my neck wrong a few weeks ago after I noticed my subscap, lat, trap and rhomboid tightening up on me – then BAM. Gridlock – my neck and whole chicken wing area is messed up. Luckily, I have a great team of Dr’s, Chiro and such that can give me the therapy and drugs needed to get past this. lol Thanks all.
I got through the first few training sessions, so now I’m going to deload for a week and let this loosen up then I have 2 nice and heavy training weeks before going to SD to battle.
Monday, I benched and it was a rough one…
Here’s what I did:
3bd lockout work: 410×3 – 3bd, 460×3 – 3bd
Shirt on doubles:
720x2x2 all 3bd
Son of a bitch. I didn’t realize how beat up I was nor did want to. I was cussing, yelling, yelling-cussing and anything i could muster to get me fired up for the lifts. These are the days that SUCK.
I got what I needed done, but I have work to do. Deload and get to it!
I’ve been doing a lot of fishing lately and this has been super fun. It helps keep me sane. Our neighbors have been kind enough to let us use their dock as ours is getting built!
As a kid I always wanted good brackish (salt and fresh) water to fish on behind my house and we have been fortunate enough to make it happen!
