06 Jan Dan Dalenberg- 5 weeks out bench
Training for RUM 8 on February 8th. I will be lifting on the wrapped/monolift day, hoping to post another 2000+ raw total.
Holy crap the meet is getting close. Thankfully training is going really well. Last two weeks everything has been good. This training session went pretty well too, benched at MBB with a big group.
I knew I would be beat up from squatting so heavy on Friday night. My plan was to do a slight unload anyways so I was in good shape.
Slight unload: Kind of like a deload but not really. My best lifting has come when I follow the 10/20/Life structure of 2 weeks up, 1 down. This time though it wasn’t going to work quite right and I would be deloading one to many times in the last 5 weeks of my training cycle. I knew I would still need a little extra rest so I “unloaded” and just worked up to my last warm up.
Bench- Up to 405 for a single. Easy rep but my body was trashed.
Close Grip Floor Press- 3 x 10 at 225
Band Fly- 100 reps total
That was it! Pretty easy training day. Sets me up nicely for next week.[share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” ][author title=”About the Author”]
