Coming up Milhouse!!! YEA BABY
Life Wifey and I still on that fun time high…although she still needs a job and we still need a house but life is simpler living with the parents and we are going to enjoy it as long as we can. My work has picked up though so that is a large amount of stress off my back.
Training Clicking along. I tweaked a butt muscle so I took the opportunity to completely recover from my 3x/week frequency that ended 4 weeks ago. I still hadnt fully recovered in my delts. I feel good now though and Bench strength is coming back.
Dec 8th Regionals The more I think about it the less I want to compete. I should be ready but I just dont want to travel 3 hours and pay for hotels and all that crap to deal with another shittily ran comp. Also I am having a ton of fun BBing right now, even though that takes nothing away from PLing…probably actually helps it.
BBer AF Experiment I have adjusted my split to be half BBing half PLing. After this cut I will be trying a lean bulk and see what kind of size I can add specifically to my arms, delts and lower lats while keeping my waist as small as possible. I will be monitoring Arms, legs and waist because those are the easiest to objectively monitor. If I stick to it this will be an entire series.
I am backing way off Comp Benching and diverting a lot more energy to delt work (not fully indicated on split).
Raw Natty 83’s Russwole won again with a PR total of 801kg. He also PRed on squat (american record) matched his PR on Bench and came with in 2.5kg of his PR on Deads (which he had but he didnt need it) Something to note is that his last workouts were much closer to the comp and were all heavy singles rather than the 4x4 and 4x5 that he did last time ~10 days out. Who knows all the details surrounding both comps (injuries etc) but kind of cool to see they made the adjustments I thought they should have done. This also might possibly puts him with in striking range of Brett Gibbs (830kg last year)…if something funky happens.
OK, lazy Saturday in my PJs working from the couch…
