Coming off my last meet in November
Went 5 for 9. Was hoping to squat around 700 however I took the post weigh-in bloat too far. A mistake I knew not to do but I did it anyhow. Weighed in at 198.3, then went to bed at 220. Woke back up around 216.
When you’re around 10-15lbs over your training weight your gear doesn’t fit right, the grooves all over the place and blood pressure is about over 9000. Bench was okay, but couldn’t get my feet right and then on deadlifts more bloat issues and just generally feeling run down by then.
I took a week off after the meet, then did John Meadows 28 days later program ( pretty awesome ) and polished off around 218. Had been eating everything under the sun during this training.
Now i’m down to about 213 most mornings.
I’m about 21 weeks out from my next meet.
