I’ve been training hard but distracted with other things but finally registered for another meet. About 11 weeks and going to start logging to keep things on track.
Everything is going well. I just finished a deadlift cycle and peaked a bit so I’m backing off on deadlift work. Squat is where it needs to be so I’m going to do a bit lower volume / intensity while I start accumulating volume for deadlift again. About 5 weeks out I’ll start trying to peak for squat. Bench volume has been steady but that is getting more specific as well.
Last tested maxes were squat 465 on a 1 hole box, bench 325 with a 3000 count pause, and deadlift was 510x5 with some left in the tank.
Meet goals are 465, 345, and 605 which I think are attainable. I’m sitting about 190-194 right now with the most muscle I’ve held. I’m going to start cleaning things up to move back into 181 territory. The weight loss is the only thing that has me nervous, but as long as I eat clean it shouldn’t be too bad. I threw in some AM cardio a few weeks ago and I’ll add maybe 2-3 days when I get back from travel.

…Travelling until Friday then I compress a deadlift and speed bench workout into one then back on schedule. Have more travel scheduled which will end up screwing with diet. I need to be 100% when I’m home.
