17 Jan Byrd: Offseason Week 2
After some recent injuries and pneumonia, I have no meets in sight. I am going into an offseason with some goals of getting healthy, fixing some specific weak areas, and trust me there are a few!
I’m currently working an off-season program I wrote to help keep myself a little more honest. I am also going to the local commercial gym 1-2 days a week to just get in a little cardio and do some stuff on machines. I don’t fit in, and hate it, but it needs to be done.
This week with squats I moved to the straight bar. Similar rep set up of 3s going up then a few moderate singles. It was really cold for Florida so I ended up throwing wraps on the last set. Wasnt so much for the weight as I could never get my knees “warm” or feeling comfortable.
1×3@ 2 plates, 3 plates, then 4 plates
1×1@ 515 with wraps
3×8 belt squat working up to 7 plates. This is the most I have done on this machine, and it was a bitch!
3×8 Bulgarian squats
Bench- My pec is still currently giving me fits, the damn thing just doesnt want to fire. It is what it is, we will keep moving forward and working on it.
incline dumbell press 3×8
100 band push downs.
Slowly I am getting back into shape and getting stronger. I am working on cleaning up my diet and hope to bring my weight back down to a good offseason weight.
