Paul Oneid – End of Off-Season SQ/DL

I am at the tail end of a long off-season.  Things have gone perfectly to plan.  A lot of weak links have been improved and I am feeling stronger than ever.  I am still working with Byrd for my training and Tucker for my diet. My next meet will be the EPC (IPL) Finals December 10, 2017 up here in my hometown of Ottawa, ON. I’ll be lifting at 220lbs and coming home with a nice $2500 cheque.

To say that I am excited to be done this off-season is an understatement.  The improvements that Byrd, Tucker and I have made to my training and nutrition have yielded some pretty incredible dividends.  I don’t think I have ever been this confident in my abilities.  Deciding to do a meet in sleeves was the best choice I could have made for my continued progress as a lifter.  I always used them as a crutch because of my previous surgeries and told myself that I needed them.  Well, guess what, I don’t.  All I needed was to swallow my pride and take the time needed to build myself up.  I’m incredibly excited to display the strength I have built over the last +20 weeks.

The goal on this day was to work within an RPE 7 for triples.  Last week wasn’t great because of handling multiple lifters the day before, so I knew today would be better.  I stayed conservative and focused on staying tall and keeping my lats down on the squat.  On the deadlift, my focus was on getting the bar off the blocks as fast as possible without losing position.  We had a great crew in the gym, with some of my clients coming to train with me and the energy was awesome.  Most of them will be competing in the same meet as me in December, so peaking alongside them will hopefully motivate everyone.
