LCS May6Wk3 Deload, Session 1

This will start our heaviest prep for our in-house meet.  Being that this isn’t a full meet we’re only doing a short 8 week cycle with limited gear.

Lowcountry Strength is currently training for an in-house mock meet.  This is an open day to anybody interested in powerlifting.  It’s a free event to come out, ask questions, hang out and get a lift in.  We won’t turn anybody away.  Come ask your questions about powerlifting or just lifting in general.

Here’s the Facebook event’s page:

Lowcountry Strength’s In-House Fun Day

[wa-wps] Training notes:

I hate deloads.  I always have and always will.  BUT!  I will do them religiously.  I need that structured down time to get things realigned.  Doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate what a deload does or that I don’t think it works.  I just simply like lifting heavy.  I hate being hurt and/or missing workouts more than deloads.  So there is that lesser of 2 evils thing.


While intensity (and for the most part, volume) is low on these deloads, I do like variety of exercises and for higher reps that I would normally do, and especially this far into a training cycle.

farmers walk 2 30 yard
bird dogs 3 5
