My last log went to hell; injuries, nagging issues, etc. I took a couple months off completely, started back up with 5/3/1. Lifted kind of off the cuff at an unsanctioned local comp for charity at the end of February.
Of course, since I wasn't entirely ready, the wheels came off and it was a pretty poor showing. I have been reworking my squat form for MONTHS since a back surgery, and on my 2nd squat attempt @ 440 I didn't sit back, I made depth but launched my freakin hips up HARD and immediately was damn near incapacitated from back pain.
Passed on 3rd, did a sorry 363 in bench and somehow managed to squirm my way to a 440 sumo pull for a 1243 total.
I should've pulled out after my squat, because I was in bed for 3 days, and it was a full 7 before I could dress myself.
I spent 6 solid weeks doing chiro, mobility, core, contrast baths, hot tub, etc. and I hit it fairly heavy last week.
So, following that diatribe; my next comp is 7/20 in Dubuque, IA. I'm a raw guy that's lucky my knees are quite healthy, but I might add sleeves. We'll see.
I bought Lilly's Cube Method, and I'm going to run that for 10 weeks, then maybe one last 3 week run before meet week, not sure.
Diet; I'm ~280 on any given day, so I'm just going to eat. I'll track macros a bit, but I'm not going to be anal about it. If I get hit with the need for Cold Stone some sat, bet I'm eating it.
Cube tomorrow-Deads, bitches!
