Training for the XPC/RPS Atlantic City meet on August 29th. I will be lifting raw with wraps at 242.
Good squat and pull night with 8 of us lifting. Two monolifts running side by side, it was a good time. I was deloading so not exactly the most exciting training but fun to see the new, bigger group working together.
Squat- 50% x 3 x 1
420 for 3 singles
Deads- 50% x 3 x 1
405 x 3 x 1. Yes it was more than 50 percent. The point was to pull something light for 3 singles. 405 fit the bill.
Finished with leg extensions and McGill work.
MEAT write up
One of my main training partners, Kelly Parker, lifted at APF Raw nationals this weekend. Kelly has been a gym rat forever, over 20 years. After constant badgering he finally entered a meet in January and caught the bug. He just benched and pulled, still working on getting him to squat more consistently.
Bench- Opened with 424, went 446 and finished 463. 61 pound PR from the January meet. 23 pound life time PR.
Deads- Opened with 565, went 606 and finished with 645. 17 pound PR both lifetime and meet conditions.
GOOD STUFF. Kelly is 45 years old and just now really getting into competing. I introduced him to 10/20/Life about a year ago and just provide a little guidance. He writes his own training cycles, I just answer questions from time to time. Pretty sweet to see a 45 year old gym rat still setting new PRs and making progress.
