Jonathan Byrd- "Powerlifting Graveyard"

My schedule is crazy, but I have never done more than 4 days a week in my 20 years of powerlifting.

Right now it looks like this:
Day 1: squat, deadlift, 1-2 aux
day 2: bench, 2 aux
day 3: accessory day: leg work, back work, arm work.

Deload Squat/Dead

After benching heavy Sunday, then push mowing my grass I was a little worn down. I played it smart and deloaded this week.

Squat: 3x1 at 505 with briefs
deadlift 3x1 at 495 with briefs
heavy reverse sled drags 4 trips

My glutes are trashed today from the drags, they are diff a weak point still.

JB welcome back!!!

I wouldn’t say “back” but im trying haha.

4/1

Rack pulls from bottom pin

Worked up to 765x1

3x8 hamstring curls
3x8 band pull aparts

4/4
couldn’t bench due to shoulder pain

seated military press behind the neck
3x5 top set 205

3x15 hammer curls
3x15 tri push downs

Rack pulls sounded fun on the first :stuck_out_tongue: hope all the recovery is coming well

Well turns out the shoulder issue is a separated AC joint from deadlifting. It is feeling a little better though, so hopefully can bench next week. Have to squat heavy Thursday.

Next week I am heading down to SC to squat with Donnie Thompson and Dave Hoff. Im sure I will get my ass kicked.
