you gotta keep after them to get good, I haven't been doing them and it was a struggle to get 10 yesterday  :(
I didn't do none yesterday  :doh:  Tried after BORs, and nope.  Wasn't gonna happen.  Maybe later tonight.

12 weeks out from meet

Lowbar Squat
   310 x 5 x 5 - Should be able to do 3 plates for 5x5 next week (last week before my meet cycle)
Paused Bench Press
   205 x 5 x 5 - These felt really good.  Last 2 were challenging, but should be able to up the weight next week depending on Friday's set.
BOR
   175 x 5 x 5

Everything felt pretty good today.  This was supposed to happen yesterday, but I had other stuff get in the way.

I'm thinking I'll just stick with 181 this time.  Cut is going way slow and I don't need the added pressure this time since I'll be going it alone again.  After the meet is over, I'll do a hard cut down to 165 and try to hold it close for August so it won't be as difficult.  Dang holidays did a number on me with all the eating and drinking.

Nice quick and dirty accessory day. Is it hard to diet leading into a PL meet? I would imagine it you would need to be pretty careful to keep it gradual so you could continue to train hard up until at least a week before?

Not very good anymore.  Up until a couple of months ago, the squat record for my division at 181 was 430 which I know I can take now.  However, a few months ago some dude squatted 490.  That's not happening at this meet for me.  I was going to aim for 500 in August though.  The bench is 320 and deadlift 515 which I'm far from.  The best I can do is to set regional records which are vacant in RPS for MD.

I think everyone is different, but dieting sucks the life out of my bench.  I was able to progress on squat last year, but I am still new at this stuff so it was likely just newbie gains.  I miss those days :(.  But yes, everything gets tracked.  Calories and macros.  I probably track too much sometimes and let shit get into my head.  I'm still on keto, but lost track over superbowl weekend a bit with the beer.  I'm paying for it still with some bloat and weight gain from last week. :-\

Weight:  189 :o
Light day and some more accessory stuff.  I should get my fat ass on the dreadmill and work off some of my beers from last weekend.

Lowbar squats - no belt, no sleeves.  Just wanted to get them done
   230 x 2 x 5
OHP
   130 x 4 x 5
SS GHRs and Ab roller
   3 sets - GHR x 10 / Ab roller x 15
Pullups
   20 reps spread over multiple sets throughout the workout.  Mostly just sets of 3s.

Off tomorrow, Saturday INTENSITY Day & deadz.  I think I'm going to shoot for a PR and go 345 x 5 on squat. 8)

198 record is 525!  I'd love to get to 5 plates, but I'm a long, long, way off from that level.

That's what I did for my first comp.  Since I turned 45, I couldn't defend the record for 40-44 so I ordered it.  The money goes to a good cause too.

BLk, was curious on why you do paused BP?  That kinda seems like a body building move more than a strength training one.  Are you working a sticking point?

Good luck on your up coming meet.
