Byrd: Week 1 Offseason

With about 20 weeks from now until the XPC Finals, its time to focus on some weak points and to add some size. I am currently weighing into the 260s, and that is way to light to compete at a high level in the 275 class. Right now I am trying to work my way up to about 285-290. All my gear should still fit fine, as its pretty big in general. I am starting off pretty slow leaving the RPE’s low and just working on some volume and adjusting back to a majority of raw work.


Bench Aux day 10/19

mid grip bench 3×10 @ 255
incline dumbbell press 3×10
standing dumbbell ohp 3×10
band fly 3×10
100 band push downs

Squat/Dead Aux
piston squat 4×5
rows 4×5
kb swings 4×8
single leg deads 3×8
band leg extension 3×10
