Lab Rat Offseason Week 3 Day 2 & 3

I’m currently in a short offseason training cycle after competing in the XPC Finals at the Arnold Sports Festival® March, 7th.  An entry form was recently submitted for the RPS Redemption Meet in Ft. Myers May 30th.  Goals for this meet are to improve my 242 w/wraps total of 1550 via 550, 425, 575

Offseason training is officially over, all 3 weeks of it.  I must admit it was refreshing to train without much concern for hitting specific numbers or percentages.  Next week calls for a trip to Charlotte for work and a deload.  One would think I plan my work travel around deload weeks.  Monday’s training kicked off with the usual rotator work and a couple sets with the bar.
