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

Wanted to work up to an RPE 7 with briefs then add wraps for another set or 2 with an RPE of 8. Deads – more singles. I was on travel, and in Detroit seeing some good friends and putting together some VERY cool things! Seminars to come, and they will be HUGE. Stay tuned.

Squat:
465×1
Brief
625×1
715×1
805×1 – Overkill wraps
905×1 – Overkill wraps

Deads:
315×1 – 2 sets
405×1 – 2 sets
500×1 – 2 sets
605×1

All felt really good. Haven’t taken over 800 since March at Arnie, and 905 was good. Briefs are broken in, but are a bit loose now as I’m lighter. BW down to 267 and moving nicely.

Dead felt good too. Nice progress, no back pain. Very happy, for just starting to move weight again.

Will continue the path and keep the reps LOW, to ensure pristine form.

I squatted with JJ and Beth Thomas. Clay along with the whole rest of crew was in full force, nailing it.

I got to chat with eric and ryan DeCaires quite a bit. Two VERY cool guys that I’ve never really spent time with and talk shop.

Very cool gym with EVERYTHING one would need. Thanks to DBB for having me out.

I’ll add more about the trip later, but here’s a few videos
