After injury and failure, I need to retool and come back stronger. I will be competing at the RPS Rawdawg Nationals inMyerstown, PA (near Hershey) and I'll be doing so weighing 198. The next three weeks will be dedicated to training in the 10, 12, 20 rep range with a lot of volume and focusing mostly on weak points.
I'll be working with body days 3-4 times a week and starting June 10th I will get back into the Cube with maxes set at 500/360/525. I'll be following the Cube more faithfully, obeying the percentages even if I think they're light, not maxing, and using form that is harder than competiton style. I'll be competing in the Modern Raw division, which allows knee wraps. I will be putting more focus on good mornings, back extensions, pull throughs, unilateral legs, and dumbbell work. I also need to prowl 3x a week at least. I have abandoned dumbells recently, and I don't think that was the best strategy for me.
I really want you guys to hold me accountable for prowling and posterior chain work, as sometimes I get caught up in training the fun lifts.
Lastly, my goal for this meet is to have a 1455 total at 198, with a USPA Junior Master level squat of 535, a Elite Junior bench of 370, and an Elite Junior deadlift of 550. Also, by the end of this, I'd really like it if it looks like I can lift heavy things. These past few months I've gotten damn strong, and damn soft. This all needs to change.
Remember guys, speak up. I don't need praise (maybe sometimes when I'm having a bad day. lol), I need a kick in the ass and pointed in the right direction.
