Dain Soppelsa Contest Prep 5 Weeks Out-8/9/17 & 8/11/17

I am currently 5 weeks out as of today. I am going on vacation for a week during which, I will deload. The week I come back, things ramp up and get really heavy. I’m excited to peak and do this RPS competition on September 16th in Indiana.

Shirt Work 

-585 x 1 x 2 sets 1 board, last warm-up

-655 x 1 2 board, opener

I was happy with the way the weights moved considering I haven’t had more than 585 in my hands in several months. I don’t to work on my feet. They need to be further back, my heels need to be further out and  down, and my knees need to be out, so they don’t come forward away from the bar.
