27 May Zane Geeting, Tuesday night tuggin’… Not the best session
I’m currently in an off-season training block, working on bringing up work capacity, and some weak areas. The weights are relatively sight, and the reps higher than usual. I don’t have a meet picked out yet, but the plan is to hit something in the late fall/early winter, then the XPC finals again.
This week was my deadlift week. I was feeling pretty good about it early in the day, and had the plan of pulling 635 for a belt only rep PR. As the day progressed, work got busy, and I wound up way behind schedule on everything. I wound up leaving work about 45 minutes late, and getting to the gym just as far behind, despite rushing to get there. As a result I rushed my warm up in order not to hold up Dirk, as most of the crew was done training when I got there. Needless to say, things did not go the way I had planned…
Bird dogs, McGill’s, Cat/Camel’s, Fat man rows and push ups
Belt only, sumo deadlift
Warmed up to 585×1, then loaded the 635 I had planned on pulling for a rep PR. To this point everything was heavy and I could not get into a good position. I kept getting forward, and pulling weights much slower than usual. I tried getting a little psyched up, which I normally don’t really do in the off season, thinking it was all in my head. I tried to get into position with the 635 and just couldn’t do it. I decided there was no reason to try to pull it with shitty form and risk an injury or even just a junk set. I called it good and moved on.
Circuit of 1. DB shrugs 2. Neck machine 3. DB curls
3 sets of: 20/20/15
Wrist roller work
3 sets up and down with 25 lbs.
– That was it. Basically just some fluff and buff stuff since I knew I was in no shape for a good session. There was no reason to try to make something out of nothing here. I decided to keep it light and focus on getting in a good session this Friday night.[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”]
