Holy pancake Batman
Just went a bit back on your log 510 lbs SGDL is awesome Cam
Great pr’s now on variations — PR’s gonna rain over you the next week.


#324

Awesome! I’ve got 6 workouts left in my program. 2 this week and then next week. Deload and test.

How will you set up your testing? All in one day? One week? Multiple weeks? You gonna take a week of recovery before starting a new program?


#325

Gonna do it next week, Tuesday I’m gonna do bench/deadlift and either Thursday or Friday(depending on how I’m feeling) I’m gonna do overhead/squat. No other lifts, just testing maxes those days. So my competition is one August 11th, which buts me in a weird spot cause I want to deload after I test my maxes. But then I have this awkward gap week between my deload and the competition. May just fuck around that week.


#326

With a comp that close I wouldn’t go all out on test week. Leave some in the tank…


#327

I usually go all out about two weeks before a comp anyway. Called peak week, most powerlifters do it, granted it’s not 100%, but since im giving myself 3 weeks I’ll be all good. Plus it’ll be a huge confidence boost for me before my competition.

Notes

  • Last day of the conjugate program, bittersweet. Had a great workout today, sad that its finally over.
  • Only thing to report today is that some bimbo hoarded all the mini bands I used for deadlifts so I had to use the dinky chains we had. Oh well, still fast.
  • Looking forward to the test week next week, gonna do a full write up of the program afterwords, see how well it worked.

INSPIRATIONAL SONG OF THE DAY


#329

Sad to be completing a program you liked! Looking forward to seeing your numbers next week though!!

What made the girl a bimbo??? I have not heard that word in forever!! Made me giggle.


#330

She’s one of the trainers at the gym, was using all the bands for one of her classes. Super attractive, but not too bright and lacks basic common sense.


#331

Can’t wait to see the write up…

My left hammy is not wanting to finish this program. Gonna limp it to the finish line

Test Day 1(7/23) Bench/Squat

  1. Bench:
    1x5(135lbs), 1x5(185lbs), 1x3(225lbs), 1x1(275lbs), 1x1(315lbs), 1x1(335lbs), 1x1(345lbs)15lb PR, 1x0(350lbs)

  2. Squat:
    1x5(135lbs), 1x5(185lbs), 1x3(225lbs), 1x1(275lbs), 1x1(315lbs), 1x1(365lbs), 1x1(405lbs), 1x1(455lbs), 1x1(465lbs)10lb PR, 1x0(475lbs)

Notes:

  • Didn’t hit all the numbers I was hoping for, but I still got some decent PRs on both lifts.
  • squat did feel off in general, 405lbs felt like 500 on my back. Maybe should have deloaded before testing. Oh well.
  • gonna do deads and overhead on Thursday probably.

#333

Nice PR’s!!!


#334

Nice work man!


#335

Prs!! Nice


#336

Well done Cam :slight_smile:
I must say those are some impressive PR’s not doing any deload before.


#337

A deload would have helped those numbers 10-20lbs man…nice work!


#338
