Zane Geeting, Tuesday night deload before the meet

I’m currently training to make my comeback to the platform for the XPC finals at the Arnold Classic. I’ll be doing Dan Dalenberg’s meet, here in MI this weekend as a tune-up. As of right now it looks like I’ll be doing raw deadlift only.


This was to be my deadlift accessory week. Since I’ll be pulling heavy this weekend, I kept things really light. As of right now I’m worried about how this weekend will go, as my lower back all jammed up and causing all kinds of issues with my right glute and leg. I’ll be going to get adjusted tonight, then resting ’til the meet comes. Hopefully that will do the trick.

Here’s what I did last night:

A few light sets of all the following movements:

Bird dogs


Glute bridges

BW squat


Rack rows

DB shrugs

Neck machine

DB curls


– These were all done very light, just to get some blood flowing and aid in recovery. Tonight (Wed) I’ll be going to the chiro to get stretched out and adjusted. Hopefully that does the trick for me. I’ll throw in an update about how I’m feeling before the meet rolls around this weekend.

Zane Geeting is a pro multi-ply powerlifter with best lifts of a 935 squat, 625 bench, and 765 deadlift. He is coming back to competitive PL after a year and a half layoff that was a result of several serious injuries including a severe rupture of the right pec that could not be repaired. Zane has an extremely busy schedule that would make most people quit before Friday. He works 55+ hours a week as a finance manager. As a renaissance man, he is also currently restoring a 140 year-old farmhouse and maintaining a hobby farm. Despite all this, Zane still finds time to train 2-3 times per week, as well as coach other lifters.
