Speed Deadlift Day!!!!


1" deficit pull:

370 - 3 x 2
         1 x 3


2" block snatch grip deadlift:

250 x 15
315 x 15


Shrugs:

190 x 25
280 - 2 x 20


Band pull aparts:

3 x 15


Lat pulldowns:

3 x 15


Core work:

200 reps



Cardio for the day:

Stone carries:

2 x 250yds (rest paused)




Nothing special today, just laid some solid ground work. The high rep snatch grips absolutely hammers my glutes and hamstrings! Next week will be heavy bench day working with 90%+ of my 1RM, considering nailing a small PR (5lbs or so) then waiting until max week to attempt 405+ at this point in time I feel I am truly ready to cross this threshold so lets see what happens in 2 weeks.


Accessory day tomorrow!!!!!

Light rep deadlift day!

Deadlift:

225 x 5
315 x 3
405 x 2

Shut down deadlifts here, max day is next week and recovery is top priority. Next training cycle is already mapped out and ready to begin in 2 weeks.


Shrugs/pull aparts/core tri set:

230 - 3 x 25 (4th set was AMRAP)

Pull aparts - 3 x 25 (4th set was AMRAP)

Crunches - 200 reps



Right now I'm feeling great, going to hit the nutrition hard these next 4-5 days and see how max day goes. Also considering committing to a meet in Fairmont, WV that will take place on October 25th. So I'm approx 12 weeks out.

Update:

Testing new maxes on Tuesday, I'm very confident in saying I have a PR sitting in the tank on each lift!!!


For now my YouTube channel is updated with 4 new videos. Ill also be introducing a new style of training for next training cycle, this will allow me to still train and compete as well as spending time with my son and focus on my schooling.


Following changes are as follows:

Consolidating Squat and Deadlift day, one being heavy other speed this day will only have 4 movements. (Squat/1 squat accessory, DL/1 DL accessory) followed by core work and cardio.

Cardio will take place 3 days a week ( 2 days being at work, 1 day at home)

Training in my home gym will be on Tuesday/Thursday/Friday (Squat and deadlift/ Bench and bench accessories/Squat and Deadlift accessory work). Monday and Wednesday will be a upper body/extra bench accessory day and wenesday a lower body accessory day.

why the changes?

Well this type of template is something I adopted from Brian Carroll's 10/20/life book. Main reason for the changes is I'm starting college again (this time I'm graduating god willing). And I want to be able to balance school, raising my son, and training. Cutting back to 3 days in my home gym will allow me an extra day to spend extra time with my son, don't let this template fool ya though I still plan on getting stronger lol!

Any slack I feel on the three main days will be addressed on the two accessory days.

Max day!!!!

525/405/535

1,465lb total


Squat:

480 - went up like speed work, decided to jump to a small PR!

525 - 25lb gym PR! And 18lb PR as opposed to my competition squat, this weight moved smooth decided to take it and save energy for the 405 bench attempt. (545 was in the cards)


Bench:

370 - moved swiftly decided for a very small PR next.

390 - locked it out for a 5lb gym PR!

405 - missed first attempt, decided to take a second and correct some bench positioning, nailed it on the second attempt!!! Big lifetime PR!!!! (I will pause bench 405+ in my meet in October).


Deadlift:

495 - flew up!

535 - stayed tight gripped and ripped and went up smooth, maybe had 15-20lbs left in the tank. This is a 20lb gym PR! And 3lb over my competition PR!



Thing about deadlift the circumference of my plates are much smaller than most barbell and competition plates so I'm pulling at a 1" deficit even thought its from the floor

Wowee! Great stuff.

I cannot even relate to the weights you're talking about here.

Overall very solid, I feel more explosive so I believe before the next training cycle starts ill get a jump video up. My diet keeps my BW in check so I'm able to reap the benefits of squatting in a positive manner when it comes to running and jumping.
