Congrats on the new pr's Andrew. It always feels good to hit new territory. Makes the pain seem worthwhile.

Thanks Rich it does feel good. Even though the PR's are small, they are hard to come by these days so i'll take it!

Awesome 415 Andy! Things are coming together perfect, looking forward to the peaking block!

thanks. Me and Ross are getting things dialed in pretty well now.  6 wks out now. Shit is getting real at this point. Peak time

10-3-18

Deadlift (conv) with Belt
455 x 1 @ 5
495 x 1 @ 6
535 x 1 @ 8
465 x 4 @ 8
465 x 4 @ 8
465 x 4 @ 8.5
465 x 4 @ 9
still sick. moved this session to Wednesday so i could rest Tuesday. May have helped some but no appetite today, and fatigued. Happy to get through all these deads without reducing load. Stopped the workout here and skipped the assistance lifts

-------------------
10-4-18

High Bar Squat
275 x 1 @ 6
315 x 1 @ 7
305 x 3 @ 7
225 x 5
reduced intensity due to fatigue/right hamstring tightness

Touch & Go Bench Press
195 x 1
worked up to a single at 195 and stopped. Elbows and pecs were hurting. Didnt make it through warmups

--------------

End of Dev Block. Talked to coach and he said to take Friday off. My fatigue really spiked at the end of this block, i think mostly because of being sick and not sleeping whilst continuing to lift during this last week. All in all, great block, finished with SBD singles @8RPE of 425/250/535

quick update, i started a thread in the nutrition section about the Renaissance Periodization Diet template. I'll be running their template for mass gain for the next 6 wks as i head into the meet. My goal is to dial in my nutrition for performance for the meet. My current BW is 219, putting me in a good spot for mass gain and competing in the 105kg class

It was nice to take yesterday off training, and i'm relaxing today. Feeling better. I finally am getting past this cold. Next week is a pivot block, and then the final peak block begins.

Your deadlifts are impressive Andy. Gives me something to shoot for. Hope the ebola's are done with soon. I'm interested in how your nutrition planning helps with your overall progress. Me thinks you'll have a good meet.
the only easy day was yesterday
