12 Nov LCS 5 Weeks Out of RPS Holiday Havoc, Session 1
I’m currently training for the Holiday Havoc RPS meet on 12-12-2015. I’ve been a 220lbs lifter for 10+years, but I’ll be making my way down to 198lbs for this competition.
Monday was back in the shirt for me. I’ve been a feet tucked under guy ever since I’ve been benching. Moving my feet out has changed things but for the better. Much more stability and a lot more leg drive. My timing needs work but I’m finally getting things closer to dialed in.
Warmed up and put the shirt of for 455 to a 3board. Training called for 6 doubles around 85-ish% to a 2board.

Finished out benching with some close grip stuff and a long set of tricep death (4 reps at touch, 1board, 2board, 3board and 4board). In hindsight, wished I’d gone a little heavier. I was surprised how good I felt after all the shirted benching.
50 pullups, seated laterals and pushdowns to round out the workout.
Surprisingly enough, lats were pretty sore the next day. Lots of pull ups along with the shirt work and the back was tired. Bench feels good. Looking forward to cranking it down a bit and pushing things next week.
