Last week was kinda messed up due to travel I had to turn around and squat on Wed after benching monday and squatting and pulling on Saturday. I know 100% that going back to back meets and moving training down is NOT ideal. Well aware of this, just doing my best to make things happen.

Normal warm-up as usual
KB Swings
McGill Big 3
Band shoulder dislocations/goblets
Empty bar

Bench * new SDP
added shirt at 405 – 5bd
500×3 – 4bd
605×2 -3bd/2bd
700×1 – 1bd – arms were toast.

Incline DB press: 3×15
Bench dip: 3×15
Hex DB hold: 5 sets 10sec hold
Hammer curl: 3×15

Lots of Motion Medicine on my forearms and biceps. I feel great minus my arms hurting from time to time. I had a phone call with Dr. Stu Mcgill and told him this about my arms and how I feel 100% and the only complaint I had. I haven’t ever heard him laugh so hard. hahahah

The shirt is breaking in nicely. Excited for this.


Wed I had to get my squat and dead session in before leaving town. Not ideal, again.

700×1 – briefs
820×1 – suit
930×1 – last warm-up
1020 – opener RB

625 – couple of singles

Stir the pot: 100.

Feeling quite sick during this session as I was coming down with some flu like crap. I made it through, just barely haha. Thanks to the guys for coming out and helping on an odd day.

I have one more session left in both the squat, dead and bench. I need to survive this for another few days and then I can rest! whew.
