Last real workout of this prep. Went amazing

Squats:
1x1 192,5kg Rpe 9. If i had spotters i could have done 1 more rep for sure. Maybe even 2 if pushed hard enough lol. Promising for the meet…
4x2 170kg @ rpe joke

Bench
4x4 95kg
moving really nice, no problems Elbow feeling pretty ok.
I guess im just gonna see how it feels on the day for deciding attempts/openers. If it feels good i think theres gonna be a PR. If bad probably just minimum to get a decent total. Well see!

Deadlift:
Talked to coach, and since my deadlift is a mental thing for me decided to let her decide the 2nd/3rd attempts for competition and not tell me so i’m just pulling weight that ill know later.
Tried that out today by having someone load the bar for me on my last warm up.
1x1 180kg @ rpe why didnt i try more?

This moved so easy… Really promising for the upcoming meet. I think i might be getting a decent deadlift lol
4x3 160kg

Rows 4x12
Facepulls 4x12

All warmup stuff before ofc,
squat: 160kg x1
not even gonna rate this as an rpe, it didnt feel heavy, it didnt look heavy. Looked like the start of a set of 10 maybe lol

Bench:
95kg x 1
Moving solid. Maybe bench will come together this saturday to…

Deadlift
150kg x 1
Easy. I’m really happy with the deadlift these past 3 months, dumb excited to see what i’ll pull this saturday

Meet went aight, went 7/9 with a PR total.

Squat:
1st attempt: 185kg
Moved like nothing. Coach and me decided to up the weight to 192,5kg.

2nd attempt
Missed. Idk what happened, according to coach i went down way slower than usual and lost my tightness. I guess i misgrooved…

3rd attempt:
Retook 192,5kg but lost a bit of self confidence, and missed it 3/4th through…

Bench
1st attempt
100kg, moved so easy even judges where like wow that was light for him. So thats good…

2nd attempt:
107,5kg (3rd attempt 3 months back.) Flew up to.

3rd attempt:
110kg. Grinder but got it up! Matching my all-time best gym PR, and finally getting back on track with tittie press.

Deadlift:
1st attempt
180kg.
Moving really easy, liked i mentioned earlier coach wasnt gonna tell me 2nd/3rd attempts, so i didnt know what i was pulling till after the attempt.

2nd attempt
187,5kg All time PR. Moved pretty good.

3rd attempt
192,5kg
Real grinder, everyone was cheering me on though so i couldnt drop it, and finished it.

487,5kg total

So, i didnt hit my goal of 200kg squat, but iknow i can squat more than 185kg (and 192,5kg)
so im not to fussed over it. I’ve got 9 long months of offseason/training coming up till the next competition, in which im intending on adding allot of KG to this total, and my general lifts.

ill try and get video’s up of highest succesfull attempts asap


#789

extra;
thanks for goodluck wishes guys.


#790

Awesome! 200kg squat incoming for sure. How heavy are you?


#791

Nice your coach likes those 7.5kg jumps a lot


#792

i weighed in at 80,2kg. Compete in the -83kg class


#793

Yeah haha… I’ve had my share of competing for this year. Next time i compete i wanna improve a whole fuck ton more…


#794

We’ll see how we match up next year. What kind of things are planned for the off season to come? How about bodyweight wise? 90kg?


#795

Coach and me had a little talk after the meet about this, but the general idea is to do allot of volume for now. Get bigger/stronger, aka the usual offseason stuff. (probably bulk up some to.)
meet i wanna do is sometime around next june, so i’ve got loads of time to improve my lifts.

I think max weight ill gain is 85/86kg. above that becomes to big of a hassle to cut down to -83kgs. Maybe once i’m not a junior anymore i’ll go up to the -93kgs, but thats still 4 years…


#796

first real workout back

squat
160kg x 8
140kg x 7
100kg x 7
Pretty proud of 160kg x 8, when conditioning is up again in some time i wanna do more of these amrap type stuff. This week is just random training.

Overhead press
3x5 40kg just some light ohp to have the elbow work.

Dumbell rows 3x20


#797

170kg x 5 squat
Moving easy, had 2 more reps in me. But put a cap of 5 on it… Really enjoying this week of programming and just kind off doing what i want. Obviously not maxing out. But also excited to start programming next week…

Wide grip benchpress
First time benching with a wide grip in 9+ months
Felt pretty good, went up to a single of 100kg. Moved as easy as my opener last saturday so idk. Might have to do some wide grip benching here and there, was also bothering the elbow less.

Some pull ups
