22 Aug Lab Rat – Mini Meet – Pre Contest Week 4
I’m training to compete in the RPS Chalk & Iron September 30th. I competed in the APF Equipped Nationals (June 17th) where I totaled 1631lbs (squat – 606.X lbs, bench press 418.X lbs, deadlift 606.X lbs) at a body weight of 239.9lbs.
Those that followed my training for the APF Equipped Nationals a few months back will be all too familiar with the training log featured below. For those that are just tuning in several trips to London forced me into doing mini meets several times throughout the training cycle. The idea of this came from the jumbo days commonly found in offseason training. I was hopeful this wouldn’t be the case this time around but work had other ideas.
Squat / Bench / Deadlift – Saturday July 12, 2017
Having just come off a deload week I was ready to get back into wraps and see a slight increase in the percentages. Like always, the day started with the McGill Big three followed by some goblet squats then a few sets with an empty bar.
Squat (Buffalo Bar)
- 2 x 5 w/ 145
- 2 x 4 w/ 235
- 325 x 2
- 415 x 2
- 465 x 1 (light wrap)
- 2 x 1 w/ 535 (medium wrap)
- 545 x 1 (medium wrap)
After a short break and a peanut butter sandwich I got in gear as I still had a long day ahead.
- 2 x 5 w/ 145
- 2 x 3 w/ 235
- 325 x 1
- 3 x 1 w/ 345
- 2 x 1 w/ 365 (1 board)
The tank started running dry towards the end of the day. I usually run an expedited pace on days like this as I try to get all my work done in a similar time to others training.
- 2 x 3 w/ 315
- 405 x 2
- 495 x 1
- 3 x 1 w/ 535
