Paul Oneid – 9weeks Out | Bench and Squat

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.

Benching and squatting this week went well.  Bench is a solid starting point and I am looking forward to seeing how I can progress it over the next few weeks.  The squat was a grind.  I got to the gym late because of work and didn’t have any desire to be there.  This is an instant where you need to remind yourself of the goal.  During meet prep, you do the work, or you don’t achieve the end goal – end of story.  I got the work done and managed to do it well, but it was sloooooow.  Check it off the list and move on.
