Paul Oneid – Benching and a new Gameplan

Due to personal and professional commitments, I have decided not to compete until 2019.  I am currently rehabbing a torn quad I suffered in my most recent meet and getting back into the groove of training.  So far, I am having a lot of fun and feel like good things are coming.

Due to the quad injury, I haven’t really been able to train the way I want to train and that has been frustrating.  I found myself dreading training because I knew I wouldn’t feel as though I was pushing as hard as I could and was constantly reminded how weak I am right now.  So, I am taking my own advice and setting some goals.  I have reached out to Tucker and we are going to be working really diligently on my diet and we are also going to be focusing more on bodybuilding style hypertrophy work.  By focusing on the diet and the new style of training, I will be distracted from the injury and find some new motivation.  On the rehab side, I have opted to start walking more, as opposed to the biking I was doing.  The bike seemed to bother my hip because of the lack of full hip extension and really tightened up the quad.  I will either walk on the treadmill first thing in the morning, or post workout, but I will do it daily for about 20-40 minutes.  It is way to cold and way too dangerous for me to risk tearing my quad again on the ice and walking with poor gait because of boots.  It’s annoying, but it has to be done.

Training will be split into a Sq/DL focused day, a Bench focused day and a hypertrophy day for both (Fluff and Buff style) with Tucker’s own twist.  Yesterday was the first session and even though it was just the bench day, I had a new focus and intensity to my training that has been lacking since meet prep.  One thing I will be doing on the powerlifting focused days is staying away from the exact competition movement and opting for variations that attack my weak points.  This way I won’t actually know strong, or weak I am.  If the variation moves up, it should mean I am getting stronger because they are lifts that I am weak at.
