08 Sep Getting a plan
I have 3 rules at my gym. #1 and most important, don’t be stupid. Pretty self explanatory. Don’t be an idiot. Rule #2 is to have a plan. If I don’t have a plan, inevitably rule #1 tends to get bent and broken. My original plan had been to compete in Atlantic City with the rest of the team. A series of unfortunate events made that impossible. So my competition plans were screwed. Which screws up my off season. Which screwed up the rest of my year. So for a couple weeks I’ve been training as if I had competed (and qualified for the Arnold). Well, qualifying for the Arnold is the main goal, so all other side ideas have been pushed to the side until that happens. The plan now is a meet in December to qualify. My training will take a different direction but currently I’m still in the off season even for a December meet.
The crew of lifters I have preparing for the Oct 3rd meet in Rock Hill are all looking good. They’re taking opener-ish (or slightly less than that) for doubles all this week. Should have some good videos to post up soon. Both raw and geared folks are all looking good. I’m excited to see what they’ll be hitting in a few weeks.
