Paul Oneid – 3wks Out | Last Heavy Squat

November 24, 2018, I will be competing in the EPC Finals in Guelph, ON. This was the meet where I tore my quad in 2017. I have 2 goals:

  • Get to the meet healthy
  • Build momentum for the future


If there is a PR there, I will take it, but I am playing the long game from here on out.

I honestly did not know what to think heading into this session.  I had to delay it 2 days due to some hip tightness, but I resolved it and decided when I woke up on Monday it was time to let it fly.  My previous heavy session was rough and the thought of adding about 20lbs to that was a bit daunting. The goal was to work up to a single between a second and a third attempt. I had been practicing visualizing my squats since that session and it paid off big time.  This was the BEST squats have felt all prep!  Things are lining up at the right time.  Old me would have finished this session and said, “Fuck it, we’re going 804lbs on the third.”  New me is saying, “That felt great.  I am on pace for a 3/3 day and positive momentum heading into the bench.”  Playing the long game is A LOT less stressful lemme tell ya!
