Week 4
Weight: 224.5lbs

Tuesday(4/10) Day 1(Squat/Deadlift)

  1. Deadlift:
    1x5(135lbs), 1x5(225lbs), 1x5(315lbs), 1x3(405lbs), 1x3(455lbs), 1x1(500lbs), 1x2(545lbs)

    1x5(335lbs), 1x3(385lbs), 1xAMRAP(405lbs, 12 reps)
  3. SSB Squat:
    1x5(275lbs), 1x3(315lbs), 1x1(345lbs)
  4. GHR 5x10(BW)
    Reverse Sled Drag 5x15yards(405lbs)
    Valslide Body Saw 5x10(BW)

Notes

  • Deadlifts went very well today, worked up to a solid 545lbsx2, went smooth and fast. Slight rounding on the second rep cause I some of my brace, nothing major.
  • Before the last set I wanted to see if I could do 500lbs double overhand(no hook grip, thats for weenies), cause I wasnt able to do it a month ago and I was able to get it! Grip wasnt even close to failing at the top. Grip gainz are real.
  • Further grip gainz proven by the axle amrap set at 405lbs, got 12 reps, but I probably could have only gotten 1 more after.
  • Worked up to a single on the SSB Squat, was probably an RPE 8.5, could have possibly gotten 2 more reps. But for now, 345 is a PR.
  • Same density circuit at the end, only able to get 5 rounds cause this one really kills me.

    Band Face Pulls 5x12(Medium/Heavy Resistance)

Notes

  • Felt kinda sluggish today during this training session, went latter than usual so Im gonna use that excuse.
  • 8 Strict and 2 Push for the AP Bar press, wasnt happy with this considering I got 10 reps with this at 155lbs last week.
  • Got 8 Reps with the 1 Arm press, so that was better than last week which was good, then proceeded to get 2 with the 120lbs. Dumbell was really loose so it kept rolling off my shoulder, could have gotten more.
  • 45 total reps for the pull ups
  • Only got 5 rounds this week with the density set, like I said I was feeling really sluggish so this cooked me.
  • Gotta get my game right for my second overhead day on Sunday. Gonna make up for this average session.

Notes

  • Was busy yesterday so I wasnt able to update, combining the past two workouts in this one post
  • Last heavy workouts before my competition, both day went really well.
  • Was able to clean the 275lbs pretty easily, which is above competition weight, helps with my confidence. Both the farmers and husafell were 10lbs above the comp weight so Im happy with how they turned out.
  • Last carry was more for speed than distance
  • Got a PR on the overhead press with 195lbs for one strict
  • rest of the workout went per usual, bench went alright, was worn out from the heavy overhead so it wasnt as great as past attempts.
  • Gonna be doing 2 small workouts next week before my comp saturday.

Another deload day, 2 days out from the comp. Just did some 3x3’s for the Ap bar press and dumbell at 70%, along with a 3x8 super set of pullups and dips. Still got 2lbs to lose before the comp, shouldnt be too bad.

Weighed in at 220lbs exactly about an hour ago. No shoes, clothes on. So as Long as I dont have a crisis today and eat like shit I should be fine. Due to anxiety about making weight I dont think this should be a problem.
