Thanks puppet guy. He moved in about a month ago and it's been great.
We'll see how I do at the meet. After provincials I changed my training quite a bit. A comment was made that it would be interesting to see how strong I could get when I quit beating the crap out of my body training a shit ton of volume and going heavy as much as I do. With input I created a template in which I was benching, squatting and pulling heavy once each week. I pull Sunday, bench Tuesday and squat Thursday for ME. On bench day, I squatted for speed and squat day I benched for speed. There was other assistance stuff thrown in as well.
I have noticed increases. I was doing zerchers at 225 off the pins for sets of four. I managed to pull 4 plates off boxes from just below my knees. That became more of a grip issue. The weekend we moved Frank down here, I pulled 355 but couldn't get it past my knees. I think I can at a meet with the pure adrenaline plus not having moved shit the day before I haven't tested max squat in a while but I hit 325 in December but it was a but high.
How are you making out with sleep deprivation?
