I’m currently training for the RPS Meet in FT Lauderdale, Oct 25. I’m in offseason training (for another 2 weeks) and will move into precontest at about 10 weeks out. My bodyweight is hovering around 264 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
Push-ups
Band fly

I ate 2 gallons of ice cream over the weekend. Didn’t gain but about a lb or so, thankfully. I love ice cream.

Anyway, didn’t really matter as my shirt still had some room for me to expand, even though I was trying on a new shirt – I’m a little small for the shirt. Notice, it’s not too big!

Training:
Bench
365×2
425×2
Overkill ‘red’
550×3 – 3bd
600×3 – 3bd
655×3 – 2bd
700×1 – 1bd – touched it easy

CG bench
225×8
315×8
365×5
365×8 RPE 7

Band fly
3×15

Band Skull
3×25

Mcgill crunch
10×10 sec hold

Great session. The shirt will need to be taken in on arms and shoulders but I LOVE the groove and feel to this shirt. I can feel the chest plate ‘fan’ out and then contract when it’s time to press. There’s still some things to work out, but this will be the ‘shirt’ to have very soon.

Got some decent assistance in and got out. I’m weak right now, but not too bad considering I’m 30lb lighter. I actually feel fantastic.

I’m looking forward to maximizing the next couple of weeks then going full-bore into some real training.

Thanks for following along!
