My old log was tracking my journey to winning the IPF Master’s Worlds…well since that journey has ended, successfully, I thought it best to start a new log.
Last time I listed some goals - some I met and some I did not. This time will be no different and some of the goals are the same.
Goals for Nationals:
- Squat 202.5 kg (445.5lbs)
- Bench 115 kg (253lbs)
- Dead lift 210 kg (462 lbs)
- Total 527.5 kg (1160.5)
- Decrease Body fat and maintain a bodyweight of 170-175
- Earn a spot on World Masters, Open World team and North American team
Power lifting meets for the year:
- Nationals February 15-17th
- North American Championships June
- Firefighter Olympics July 15th (Possible Raw meet)
- Masters Worlds October
- Open Worlds November
Goals for Year
- to increase my total each meet by no less than 5%
- maintain bodyweight of 170-175 while still decreasing body fat
- improve form both in and out of gear
- improve base strength
- Improve my mental game
- maintain a clean nutritional habit with bi-weekly cheat meals
- Learn to listen to my body, not forcing weights it is not ready for and at the same time not falling it to the “it is too heavy attitude” either.
Resting when my body tells me to and pushing harder when it is ready. This is a difficult area for me as I tend to push even when my body says it is not ready.( I think I have done better with this one this past year – but still not always there)
I will be using the AD/NHE eating style this year, starting on Friday! Hopefully I will post video’s of workouts monthly and take bf measurements once a month as well. I would(will) like to get down in the middle of my weight class and stay there, so as not to have to worry about making weight at any meet.
I carry way to much bodyfat in the abdominal region. Conditioning will also be an inbetween meet emphasis. Logging of daily workouts will be somewhat generic as I will be working with a trainer for the forseeable future, but I will still post a very general idea of what I am doing and the weights used. Like only if it was a squat day or such and the amount of weight. It is only fair to the trainer that his program remain his.
So here we go again! On the road to defending my titles and improving myself along the way.
