Paul Oneid – Starting my off-season!

I competed November 24th, 2018 after a year break. It was a big momentum boost and I am 100% healthy and looking forward to a productive off-season.  I’ll be looking to compete at some point in the summer, but haven’t decided when or where.  In the short-term, work and my family will be my number 1 priority with the launch of a long awaited project and a cross-country move to Calgary, Alberta with my wife Pam and our pups Meatloaf and Beefcake.

This session went really well.  It’s funny – I was starting to think I got slower, but the reality is that it is tough to exert force when you’re in pain.  I definitely haven’t slowed down.  The goal for today was to work on stability in my squat with the tempo work and then reinforce the pattern with some CAT work.  The plan is to increase the volume here before increasing the load.  This strategy has been used by Jay Nera for years and with his suggestion, I have incorporated it.  I followed that up with some stiff leg deadlifts, which felt good, but I overshot the RPE by a wee bit.  Not a problem, but I need to temper my expectations this soon after a meet.  Finished off with some rows and leg accessories.  As the off-season unrolls, I will expand more on the big picture plan, but for now I am just happy to be back under a bar and rebuilding instead of rehabbing as I was in the habit of for the last 4 years.
