Paul Oneid – Bench Accessories

I am currently in a VERY long off-season.  Mentally and physically, I need a break.  I’ll have lots on the go the next few months business wise, not to mention that I will be getting married, so this is the perfect time to enjoy an off-season.  I am still working with Jon Byrd for my training and Tucker for my diet and feel stronger than ever.  My next meet will be the EPC (IPL) Finals December 9, 2017 up here in Montreal, QC. I’ll be lifting knee sleeves only at 220lbs.

Didn’t go to the commercial gym today, as I had a couple clients in town who wanted to get some training in.  Cody and Keegan Webber drove down from Kirkland Lake, ON to visit the big city.  These dudes are young, strong and work hard.  They train out of a small community gym in northern Ontario, with a couple of their own bars and a bunch of home made equipment.  They do what they need to to get shit done!  It was a pleasure to have them at Dynamo and hopefully they took home a few coaching points.


I was not programmed to bench press on this day, but with the technique inconsistencies I have been having week to week, and the fact that I wanted to demo the cues I wanted my guys to implement, I did some form work.  It felt really solid and exactly the way I wanted it to.  Hopefully this carries through the deload week and I can build on things.

The rest of the workout was fun and I got a gnarly pump.  This off-season, Tucker has been programming this day and he is really channelling my inner bodybuilder.  I try to do my best to feel the movements and focus on the muscles being worked.  This has forced me to use much lighter weights and has made a huge difference in my physique.  It has also saved my joints big time!  You’d be surprised how sore you get using “baby weights.”
