16 Weeks to APF TX Challenge

  1. 7/15 Upper

    OHP
    135x5
    145x5
    155x5
    135x10x2

    HS Rows (neutral grip)
    170x10x4

    Dips
    BWx15
    BW+25x10x3

    Prone Incline DB Shrugs/Band Facepulls (light)
    80x15x3/15x3

    Got a hell of an upper back, rear delt pump from the lat and trap work. It took me awhile to get my right shoulder warmed up (impingement is slightly acting up), but I got it there after a lot of band traction. I'm starting the taper and coasting into the meet at this point. I have two more bench sessions and one more of each squat and deadlift (geared) with the plan to hit my opener to a 1-board this week and then probably my second attempt to a 2-board the following week.

  2. I don't know if its the angle, or my eyes lol, but it looked like your left leg may have been out further than your right.

    Still looked good to me though!

    I played around with my foot angle and it obviously didn't work out. It forced too much of the weight slightly forward. I had to rack it and take again right before this attempt.

  5. 7/17 Deads

    580x1
    605 Tech Fail (fell forward)

    I had some great energy and focus this day, which is why I went a lot heavier than I planned. I went full gear and straps up on my heaviest attempts and the 580 is very smooth with good speed. This is going to be my second attempt at the meet. On the 605, the straps were cranked down. I mean freaking cranked to the point were I could barely breathe. I didn't get into the proper position and fell forward about 1/3 of the way up.

    7/19 Bench



    Ignore my idiot training partner in the background. I can confidently say that I will hit this at the meet, which is crazy to me because I didn't expect solid progress on bench. Before this, I took my opener (425) to a 1-board and smoked the weight, which is why I went ahead and did this final set. I'm done benching and pulling until the meet with one more squat session. I'm feeling great on bench and deads, but only moderate on squat. **** it...I'll just slam some torque and smoke my attempts. Every now and then, you're lucky enough to get a fresh breath of inspiration and I've gotten that this week. I can't say I want to be a good example and let my apprehension hold me back.

  6. ****ing smoked! You're staring a HUGE PR right in the face! I'm sure the squat will come together, I'm saying 3 or 4 PRs this meet.

    I plan to PR on all three. I know I can hit a 661 squat if I can get my damn head together, a 451-473 bench, and a 601 pull.

    Me too.

    About the PRs, not those numbers.

  9. 7/21 Lower

    I had a very rough session today, fellas. I hit my opener in full gear (barely), but that wasn't the bad part. While I was looking at the video, I noticed that my right knee came in and I was going over everything in my head. While mimicking the squat motion that I did in the video, my right knee, once again, slightly dislocated. There was a slight pop in the joint and I immediately collapsed onto the ground. It's too early to assess the potential damage to the knee, but, unless it's really bad, I'm still doing the meet. I will not be doing any lower body work until the meet and I probably won't be taking my warm-up bench on Friday since there is a lot of torque on my knee from my style of benching.

    I'm not going to lie: I'm pretty shaken up and my confidence is even lower going into this meet.

  10. I was thinking about your last video thinking about how that leg looked like it was too mobile/flexible in the hole.

    That really sucks, but just don't hurt yourself worse. Get that bad boy healed up! Hopefully it's good for you on meet day.

  11. Stick with it, man. Don't spend too much time in your head. We know you're the thinking man's powerlifter through and through, but don't let your mind psych yourself out. Use common sense and see how you feel. Stay safe.

    I want a bigger belt for mine. Maybe a girdle and then a belt. Or if I wear a t-shirt and suck the belt even tighter?
