It’s been awhile. Perhaps too long… and now its time to pick things back up and get back on track. Some things have changed. The training, for starters, has become far more specific to powerlifting. The diet has been changed to where I am actually keeping track of what I’m eating. The supplements have also changed… as in there is hardly any (and this will be a topic I will cover much later). But the goals… they have gotten GREATER.
GOALS FOR 2016
1) Bench over 300lbs
2) Squat over 405lbs (425lbs sounds nice)
3) Deadlift over 500lbs
4) Compete again (and destroy previous total of 1070)
Bodyweight: Fluctuating around 242lbs
Those training numbers have all come up from as far as two weeks ago and they are still in process. And it’s just about to turn March… so I have a lot of time to work with.
PRE: None… just some water with a squirt of Mio Energy for a little kick
BAR x 5
135 x 5
185 x 4
235 x 3
285 x 2,2,2,2,2
320 x 1
OLYMPIC STANCE DEEP PAUSE SQUATS
155 x 5,5,5,5,5 (paused in the hole for a 3 count)
283 x 8
513 x 15,15,15,15 (whoops… meant to only do 12 reps!)
I was supposed to do some light good mornings and some kettlebell work but I ran out of time and had to get home to cook dinner. I’ll throw both of those onto my 4th day for BB work. Considering I had not taken a preworkout the pumps (particularly after leg press) were absolutely ridiculous. Like couldn’t walk right ridiculous. Which is strange because even on days where I’ve taken a pre+ARA+GMS I didn’t get anywhere near the level of pumps I had today!
