    Overhead

    Seated military press
    Bar x warm ups
    135 x 5
    185 x 2
    205 x 2
    215 x 2
    225 x 2

    Db mil press
    60 x rest pause
    20, 12, 8

    Press downs
    120 x rest pause

    Short one again. Felt strong on state mil always feel strong after trying to do them standing. Also thinking might have to try lifting outside of work due to constantly being on tight schedule.

    Brian Carroll wrote an article on cutting a few weeks ago and Dan Green did a video on it. 7lbs shouldn't be too bad. Kill this meet! I've been silently following.

    Went in to the gym an hit all my openers 425, 335, 455. Then after some low intensity cardio weighs in at 246.5. Think I can make t without cutting. Here is vid of the lift too late for form check (bad angles anyways). But let me know if you think weight is moving at right speed for openers. Thx

    Well good day for me overall went 7/7 for a total of 1333.2 meet pr'ed every lift and total.

    Of anyone had been reading this before ham my main goal is a worlds meet in Vegas in November . So going in to this one I really just wanted to try and do the minimum better from my last meet and keep it positive so really did not want to miss any lifts so this is how it went.

    Squat opened with 429.7 really easy so jumped to 468.2 got more in me but 6 pounds better than last meet so passed on 3rd wanted to stay with game plan no misses.

    Bench opened with 336 fairly easy so jumped to 358 which was about 6 pounds better than last meet. So passed on 3rd sticking to game plan.

    Deadlift opened with 457.2 easy pull so jumped to 479.5 also fairly easy and same 6 pounds better. Ok so finally I said screw gameplay thought I got screwed on last lift at last meet so took a third at 507 and nailed it.

    Like I said 7/7 and 21 white lights I was happy with it now two months of training or a competition and fun weekend in Vegas.

    Squat
    429.7

    If I were you I would drop the seated shoulder presses and replace them with standing overheads and make sure you finish over your head like an Olympic lift. Looking at the dates of your posts you did seated shoulder two days before push presses. This is counterproductive to your bench imo. I would work on stricts or pushes for a while and rotate. I think the stricts have much more carry over to shoulder health and raw benching though.

    I would basically agree with you. But this template was wrote by Corey Hayes so I am following it as written for this cycle. Appreciate the advice I know somewhere around nothing when it comes to powerlifting cycles so I'll take any advice. Thx
