Time to start logging again at good ole T-Nation, I said I would and it’ll help me find the strength I’ve misplaced in the past 2 months.
April 2009 I competed at the Canadian Nationals with friends from Montreal and Ontario and finished with a respectable total of 292.5 kg (665 lbs) just missing Class 1 by a few kg. I should have had them and was pretty much set on getting it this July at the Ottawa Bench Freak, but some big time life and shit got in the way. I finally decided rather than going to the meet with my head half not there that I will put off competing until the fall, when I hope we will have a small qualifier in Levis for the QC provincials. We are hosting the Nationals in 2010, and I want to be there.
My first goal is to get my squat back to where it needs to be without gear. I put a lot of focus on learning to squat in a suit since December of last year and once I took the damn thing off I found I had to start at the beginning again. That combined with some muscle loss from my legs has really set me back on this lift. I also don’t have the hours needed to follow Sheiko anymore, so my training has become more intuitive and has to revolve around my life, rather then the other way around LOL.
So onto some training, June 8, women’s gym, while I was “working” (hey, I’m setting an example right)
bar x 8
OK, so I felt like pressing some LOL, I get like that with bench
Flat DB Press 5x10x25lbs DBs
DB Row 5x10x30lbs DBs
Little bit of squattin just because I can
Need to work back up to the good depth.
Here are some vids, since my camera now FINALLY works. If there is no sound, I’m going hunting for some Japanese JVC executives. This is a double for 105 on the bench
