26 Jun Training week 4, day 2: Bench
I’m currently in an off-season training mode, and I’m looking to do a meet in the fall. Bodyweight is currently down to 270 from 293 and I want to continue becoming more healthy and active (walking a mile per day) and eventually get back into a precontest prep by August 2014. Best official equipped lifts in competition are 1185 squat, 825 bench, 800 deadlift with a 2730 total.
McGill Big 3
Goal for the day:
I took this day a sort of a deload. I needed a week to back off before turning it on. More than anything I’m knocking some more rust off and getting in the groove.
=Floor press with 8,000lb of Chains
225×3 – 5 sets
Incline DB press W/Light band
Light band Piston press-down
3 sets to near failure
I’m ready to crank things up. Saturday will start the real offseason work, and I’ll be getting into briefs IF I can get into them. I’m looking at competing in Oct-Nov or so. I have a few things in the works as far as potential meet, but I don’t want to say yet.
Bodyweight is back up to 271. I want to be closer to 265, but I have to be patient.
I’m still walking about a 1 mile per day. Great for my back. And heart!If you have nagging back issues, walk daily. First thing in the morning is best.
