I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m in offseason training and will move into precontest at about 10 weeks out. My bodyweight is hovering around 270 in the AM, and I will slowly move toward 260 over the next couple of months, where I want it to stay.

NOTE: Team Samson will also be doing a Seminar the following day, stay tuned for details.

I’m going to compete at 242, as I feel better there, overall.

For the full story of why I decided to go 242, read this: A Look in the Mirror, Part 1

Warm-up:
Mcgill Big 3
BW Squat

Got my new Overkill canvas suit from Rudy, and was really excited to throw it on and give it a shot. My weight was quite a bit down on Saturday AM (263), so it wasn’t super tight, but still didn’t attempt to add briefs under it.

Training:
Squat
Straps down
500×2
600×2
750×2
Straps up
800×1
910×1 – video

Dead
Romanians: 3×6 – hard squeeze each rep

Reverse sled drag: 100 yards

Mcgills: 10x10sec hold..

It’s been about 5 years since my last canvas experience. It’s def a change of pace, and I think it will be a good one. Hard to say just yet, especially without briefs underneath. I got a little pitched forward on the way down, and turned it around early.

I plan on putting it on again this weekend, but adding the briefs and doing some more experimenting.

Romanians smoked me. I have NOT done them in a long time. Fun stuff.

About 12 weeks out form the RPS FT Lauderdale meet.
