28 Jul Chris Bartl Training Log 7/26/14
Today was the start of my 10-week prep to get ready for my upcoming meet in October. It’s a USPA multi-ply meet which I have not done before. I used to compete single ply when I first started and did exclusively all USPA meets since they are based in Cali and it was easy to get around to some of the smaller local ones. To say I am interested to see how they judge the multi-ply is an understatement.
Brian is programming for me again for this meet and he has delivered again. Looking at this program I can only think of one thing: what the fuck did I do to piss him off. A long time ago, Brian asked if he could “try some stuff out” on me which I of course agreed to. I was not expecting this. Needless to say when he sent me day 1, all I could do was shake my head.
Below is what I put myself through:
McGill Three 3x lots
band shoulder warm up
add metal briefs
briefs plus suit, straps down
525 – 3×4
315×4 – 3 board
add jack bench shirt
395 – 3×4
add jack sumo deadlift suit
455 – 3×4
10 – 40 yard sprints. Yes you are reading that correctly, I had to do 10 – 40 yard sprints. I do actually enjoy sprinting, just not after a 3 hour lifting session. I really ended up doing more like 20 sprints because I did 10 build up sprints to make sure I remembered how to run. It was a shock to my system to say the least but did feel good to run. Something must have worked because I jumped on the scale at 244 this morning. So far that makes 10 pounds in about 5 weeks and that does not upset me at all. I feel better, I’m moving better, my body doesn’t hurt and I haven’t lost any strength or at least I don’t feel like I have. Will have to keep the eye’s open on that one.
