Training update – Vegas/Key West and what’s up going forward


What a blur the last few weeks have been. I was in Key West, followed by Vegas the week after. Some business, some pleasure.

The plan was to take a total deload Key West week, and recover as I had 5 weeks in a row heavy. That worked fine, and I got a bunch of much needed R&R and came back ready to train and got a decent session in.

Then to Vegas. Anthony Pastoralla arranged a training session in his gym in Vegas for me and that was very cool. As luck would have it, the gym has a water main bust as we were walking up, so no training! Unfortunately, I’d arranged to have spotters there – JJ/beth and Mick/Mandy, Ria and others and when this fell through, that was my window of opportunity.

So here I am. About 4 weeks out from the meet so I have to put something together over the next 3 weeks. This weekend (tomorrow) I’ll take something like this.

NOTE: overtraining is not going to be a factor. I’m def on the side of UNDER-training haha.

9/27 – Squat: about 1000, then 1080-1100 and Dead: 700 then 730-750
9/29 – bench: about 750 then around 780 full range
Seminar weekend 10/4: 1100 squat/ 800 bench and around 800 dead. Note: you can come hang out with us this weekend. Hang with the pro’s on Saturday(10/4) then “strength for a lifetime” seminar on Sunday (10/5).

Register here:

As you can see, I have some big sessions ahead of me, but one at a time and that starts with flipping the switch tomorrow.

Lets see what happens. [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]
