Lab Rat Pre Contest Week 8 Day 2 & 3

I’m training for the XPC Finals at the Arnold Sports Festival® March, 7, 2015.  I’ll be competing as a 242lb raw lifter looking to improve my best meet lifts of 575, 430 and 600.

Monday was the last heavy day leading into the XPC, I worked up to my planned opener then a second attempt give or take off a two board and shut it down.  All sets from 135 and up were done as singles with a rack and reset.

  • Bar 3 x 8
  • 135 x 5
  • 245 x 3
  • 335 x 2
  • 365 x 1
  • 405 x 1
  • 430 x 1 (2 board)

Day 3 consisted of a little bit of everything.  A few rounds of the McGill Big 3 was used as a warm up then I started moving through exercises.

  •  McGill Chins – 20 (alternating grip)
  • Band fly – 50
  • Band skull – 50
  • Side lateral – 3 x 8
  • Hammer curl – 3 x 10
  • D/B shrug – 3 x 12
  • Rolling plank – a bunch

Jason began training under Brian’s tutelage in February 2013. He was actually one of the initial test subjects, hence the name Lab Rat.
