Zane Geeting, Friday night squat and pull training

I am currently training to make a comeback this spring. Between now and then I’ll be doing Dan Dalenberg’s push/pull meet here in MI this January.


So, we’re picking up with me now being on 12 straight days of work. I got to the gym around 8:45 pm, roughly 14 hours into my day. Overall I was feeling good since I got some extra rest when I couldn’t make it in for Tuesday’s session. Because I missed that session, I decided to squat and pull both in this one. Here’s how it went:


General warm up-

Bird dogs


BW squat

Belt only Squat-

warm ups, followed by…





I was a little forward on the set with 530, so I called it good after the double instead of pushing a 3rd rep. This is around the 85% range for me right now, so there is no reason to be pushing reps with poor form.


Belt only Deadlift-

warm ups, followed by…





This would be around 90% of a raw pull for me right now. I pulled these on a fat, stiff bar.


Reverse hyper-

3 sets of 10-12 up to 315


JL planks-

3 sets at 30 seconds each


That was all of it. Dirk, Brandon Crabill and I got in a good session, then hit the road. If all feels well, I’ll go up into the 90% range on the squat next week, and 95% or so on deadlift the following week. Stay tuned for that. Day 13 of work in the morning, then I finally get a day off, to catch up on things around the farm/house. Yeah buddy.
