I've had people ask were i keep my training log, so i've decided to post one here as well. Besides, all the cool kids are doing it.
For those that don't know me, my name is Christopher Drummond. I'm a competitive powerlifter in the 259 and 275lb weight classes. I'm sponsored by Charles Staley- Staley Training Systems. I'm currently training for a push/pull meet at the end of Feb.
Here are my last two training sessions- ME bench and ME deadlift.
i took this past week off from training. i was feeling a little beat up. my left forearm was hurting and my right shoulder was tweaked.
tonight went well but i felt some tightness in my right shoulder on the heavy set of board presses. i decided to drop back in weight and hit some reps to play it safe.
decided to hit a heavy paused single tonight. 495 or 500 will probably be my second attempt in my upcoming comp.
i still don't have my belt repaired. i had to use the ol' valeo. i didn't realize how much my belt helps. it actually keeps me up in my arch. i found that with the piece o shit valeo i collapsed out of my arch when i got my liftoff.
ME bench- full ROM touch and go
4 board press
565x3- 20lb PR from last session- shoulder tight so i dropped the weight
pin lockouts- middle of bench stroke
tonight was a good night for the entire crew. i decided that we would all work up to a heavy single tonight. I got vids of all our attempts. i worked up to 615 for two. the weight felt light but on my second rep i got back on my heals and had to regroup.
jowee hit his 550 and i have an awesome video of it. Dave hit a really smooth 555 as well.
