31 Jan Zane Geeting, Friday night squat deload
I’m currently training to make my comeback to the platform for the XPC finals at the Arnold Classic, this March. Its been two years since I’ve posted a total, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what I can do again.
We had a fun crew last night, several of the guys came up from the Lansing area to train, a few of whom I haven’t seen in quite some time. Its good to catch up with the guys, especially when its a deload night and you don’t have to be quite as focused as you are in a heavy session. My plan for the night was to work some light singles in a different pair of briefs than the ones I had been using which are giving me next to zero carry-over. They’re briefs I was wearing when I was in the 240’s and my BW yesterday was 227. Here’s how things went:
Fat man rows and push ups
warmed up to 330×3
Added older, tighter briefs
510x a few singles.
– These briefs are still too loose, lol. But they’re definitely better than what I was using. These are the briefs that I used to use under my canvas back around 2010-2011. I was able to hit good depth on all the singles with 510.
3 sets of 15 at 300 lbs.
100 total reps with 300 lbs.
McGill curl ups
2 sets ea side, around 45 seconds ea.
– I called it good there. My left hip/glute was feeling really beat up from squatting last week, so I kept everything light, and low volume. Normally I would have done some extra squatting after the briefs work, maybe some light sets of 5-6 raw, but it wasn’t worth it as I want to be fresh going into next weeks squats. After this week, I move into the heaviest part of my training cycle, and will be handling weights in the 100% range for a couple weeks. I need to be as mentally and physically prepared for that as possible. This is what determines whether or not I peak properly for the meet, and also where I pick my attempts, etc. Stay tuned for that, its bound to get interesting, lol.
