Solid pulls, hope them elbows shape up for you this week! My right hip is hanging on by a thread but the hard work is over so I may just survive.  :S

Taking Wed. off of bench was a good idea, elbows felt good through my session today and bench was stronk AF, could have probably knocked out 270 x 6.



squats

blah blah blah

280 x 2, 4 sets

bench

blah blah blah

270 x 2, 4 sets

4 sets GM's, 3 sets flyes

This.

Two more sessions until the meet, I'll actually be a little sore on Saturday but trusting in Boris until the bitter end.

Great looking session Anthony, squats are looking dialed as did the paused deads. Paused deads are my favorite variation by far, was doing double paused a bit earlier in the prep....ya they sucked lol

Strong benching Rich! That really came together for you.
Well that squat session certainly went pretty good. That 315 flew up buddy, you may have a PR in there next week still. Odd how it got better with more weight but fukkit, thatís a good problem to have!
That second rep of 405 looked like the bar, so fast!

Strong looking session there Shawn. :)  Your slacker session looks pretty damn good to me.  Nice job hitting 3 at 270 on the bench and 455 on the deads.  A few days of rest will do you good and I'm sure you'll have a killer session on Friday.
Thanks Greg, ya I went into that session knowing it wasnít going to be very good, l also wasnít interested in pushing too hard as getting injured would have been real possible. All good, good finish today and looking forward to some more days off.

I wish my good sessions looked like your slacker ones. Nice work. It sucks when you have to cram stuff in because of life, but it happens. Rest up and come back strong. 
Thanks Rich, ya life is gonna life. We went to Toronto Wednesday night for my 6 year old to have eye surgery at sick kids Thursday morning so it was a busy couple days. His surgery went great and now the hard part of trying to keep him calm and relatively still  ::)

Whatever happens happens at this point :)  Enjoy the last week of training and do what you can.


Thanks Dave. I'm not expecting too much this year. Just not working out right this time. I'm sure I'll do okay but go in with low expectations and hope for the best.

I squatted today to give things a go and see where I stand. It was better today but I could still feel the loss of strength once things got going. Oddly enough once the weight got heavier the problem got better although not gone completely. Wraps really helped. I'm guessing wraps change angles slightly and obviously help out of the hole. Either way I'll take what I can get


JC week 4 day 4

warm ups

squat

bar x 10 no weakness felt
135 x 8 starting to feel it
185 x 2 really feeling it now. stopped at 2
225 x 1 still hear. Really had to concentrate to get it
245 x 1 a little better
265 x 1 still there but got the rep
285 x 1 better yet again. Just weird

wrapped

295 x 1 went fine
315 x 1 good here too. Thought about more but stopped while I was ahead


Deadlift

390 x 3 vid
405 x 2 (1-2) vid

Tried hook grip for the first time on warm ups. NO THANKS. I know you get used to it but I like my opposable appendages. First rep of 405 felt off but 2nd went fine.

That's it. I'll hit the other lifts but I probably wont squat again till the meet now.
