T Nation

Road to Out Totaling Dave Forner in the Summer of 2013

My name is Ryan Pelletier. I Used to post under Prodiboy but I no longer play video games so I’ve deciede that I no long want to use that name.

I’m a 105/120/120+kg lifter in the CPU which is the Canadian affalite of the IPF. My last meet was in July at Alberta Provincals in Medicine Hat where I totaled 482.5 kg and had a spread of 182.5/120/190 kg which I personally looking back am not happy with, but it was a good place to start with for my first meet. I’m Currently prepping for the Calgary Festival of Strength on October 13 where I’m hoping for a 200/140/215 kg spread for a 555kg total. My training leading up to the meet with be Sheiko based with running #32 for the last 4 Weeks running into the meet.

Deadlift

135x3
185x3
225x4
275x3x2
315x2x2
335x2x2
365x2x2
405x2x2
455x1(30lb pr)

Session felt extremely good. First time I’ve pushed my deadlift in a while. The 30lb pr felt easy I feel like it would have been easier If my hips hadn’t had shot up right away. Looking forward to hitting a big fat meet PR in 4 weeks the taper off is coming and my body wants it.

Bench
Bar x 10
95x5
135x5
155x5
185x4
225x3x2
245x2x2
265x2x2
275x2x1

Bench Felt slow but I’m pretty sure my body was done after the dead lifts since I hadn’t really had anything in my system all day.

Nice lifts!! Quick question, why don’t you play video games any more? That’s crazy talk!

I played CSS EXTREMELY competitively up until a year ago, I decided that playing video games for 12 hours at a time or getting up a 3am to play in some match wasn’t worth it anymore. Also as a full time student that works a full time job and trains like I do, I had to make a decision. And well I chose to be the educated meathead instead of the jacked gamer

Squats

135x5
185x3
225x5
275x4
315x3x2
345x3x2
365x3x2
385x2x2
405x2 (20lb over my belted pr and a rep)

The squats felt slow though out the workout but 385 had nothing really wrong with it besides it moving slow. My upper back stayed tight and I didn’t feel like a fishing pole. They were done beltless and without a heel.

Bench
Bar x a few
95x10
135x5
155x5
185x4
225x3x2
245x3x2
265x4(rep pr)

I was very very surprised I was able to hit a bench pr today considering my triceps were cramping and I couldn’t really get a solid arch and I had Gay wrists for most of the training session after about 225.

Overall extremely easy session. There was some nice scenery in the gym today. As alway I took the middle play form and it just some happened that the girls hockey team had to use the squat racks around me so I was pleased. I also got a 4th request to for a strength club at the university so I think I’m going to do it and we’ll see what happens since we got some strong a fuck bobsleighers in during the day. Ordered a 45lb bag of protein for myself today. Also my Vastus Lateralis is starting to look like a wing on the side of my leg + 1 for Sheiko

[quote]Squat 195kg-200kg
I think this is attainable. I felt as though I was good for atleast 180 at the meet. I’m more then likely going to open with 175kgs at the meet In october so it wont be such a big jump for my thrid attempt. Also I’m still getting stronger. I hit 165kgx3 for a triple and I hadn’t hit that since the last time I ran Smolov over a year ago before blowing my knee out. It’s also 7.5kgs less than my squat at the meet So the numbers are coming.

Bench 135kg-140kg
This is a little bit of a stretch but I think if training goes well and I learn to eat somewhat properly the progress should continue. It’s weird to think that I was a 110kg bencher not even 6 weeks ago and I’m already hitting 120kg for a double. It’s definatly the Ice Cream sandwhichs that the secret about 24/week with cake a 2weeks out of a meet. I all seriousness this would be a nice PR.

Deadlift 210kg
The deadlift Oh the deadlift where to start other than It’s by far given me the most problems. It seems the more I train the further away a feel I am from where I want to be 140kgs feels heavy in training but come meet time I was still able to pull 190kgs. This one I definately a shot in the dark it’s not so far off that I dont think I’ll get it but it’s far enough that I’m going to have to work to get it.

Total:560kg or 1232
This seems so far away considering I totaled 482.5kg or 1063lbs at my last meet I think I’m going to do a skills eval when I get back from holidays at about 7 Weeks out I’ll pick my openers there then It’s guns a blazing into the meet with the last week of Sheiko 32 leading into the meet. [/quote]

I posted this just after my meet about 9 weeks ago about what I wanted to hit in this meet coming in. Since I have a few minutes i figured I might as well post my thoughts on it.

I think that everything that I thought I was going to is about accurate I plan on squatting 205kg but other than that its about right. I plan on opening light with 175/120/190. Which will reach my goal for the meet and qualify for nationals in April. A 560kg total will allow me to choose If I want to compete in gear or not at nationals since the qualifying total is 555kg for the 120kg. Second attempts are going to be 190/130/205 and thirds at 200/135-140/210-215. I’m excited for the meet at least this time I’ll be better prepared for the meet not like last time a 1 week deload before and go. I still need a handler so If your not competing and would like to give me a hand fire me a PM or just post

Looks like some solid goals. I’ll be envious of that 140 bench. Legit.

I really have no idea its supposed to run from 5-11. Weigh ins starting 3pm which fuckin blows but oh well. I still haven’t figured out who is going to handle me at this meet.
