    I can't sleep either. My mind is running like crazy!!!
    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

    Thanks toro, 5 weeks to go brother. I'm supposed to deload this week buy my back feels better than it has in a month so the plan is to work up to 355-360 tomorrow because of my crappy squats last week. My opener is going to be 350, which I did a couple weeks ago. I'll prolly do 355. After that, rodjas buddy - who's going too, wants me to unrack around what my max will be to get used to the weight on my back. I gotta deadlift at least one more time, I'd like to pull an opener, but that's how I screwed up my back so I gotta be careful...

    So this is the plan 5 weeks out: this week is deload week, so I plan on hitting openers. Next week is a new cycle, so I'll put the work in next week and the week after. The week after that I'll prolly hit openers again then shut it down for about 10 days before heading to Prague.

    I know that's not typical heading into a meet, but it's similar to what I did going into nationals and it worked out well.

    The wild card here is the deadlift of course. I might try an opener on Friday depending on how the back feels.

    squat

    warmup
    hip circles, hip flexor stretching, calf stretching
    bar
    95x1
    135x1
    185x2x3
    225x3
    275x1
    315x1
    335x1
    355x1, here it is:


    unrack 405: 3 singles

    thoughts:
    rodjas buddy wanted me to unrack my max a few times to get me used to the weight on my back and let me tell you...holy shyt was it heavy. i tried a one step walkout - really shaky, a half step walkout that felt a little better so i did it twice. heavier than i expected. that said, i think the 355x1 was pretty smooth. i got to the bottom and didn't tear up my back or oblique. kept my chest up better than usual too. I'm happy with it. i really don't know if i'll go any higher than 355, that's 87% for me and i don't know if there's value in hitting my second, which will be 378.4 - stupid kilograms.

    what do you guys think?

    Good looking plan. I think at most do the the second with reverse bands, if not the walk outs and openers should do it. I agree, wouldn't risk it just to hit 380 in the gym.

    Well done, under control and smacked! 407 will be there on meet day, I'm sure of it. Definitely a good idea to get some heavy unracks going, unracking a max always scares me.

    Will there be a mono lift? If so would you still walk out? I know it's all preference and all.

    Yes, and by no means am I good at it. I have trouble setting up with my feet in the correct position. At nationals I did a 1/2 step walkout. TBH, I'm not sure I should do that w 407. It was really heavy. I'm gonna have Alex w me for warmups, so he'll assess my set up and get me to where my feet are correct.

    Good point. I'm gonna have to start adding walkouts in the coming weeks as I never touched what I want to squat...well the range.

    I hear you on the foot thing. I still love squatting out of a mono though because you can always shuffle your feet wider or narrower without having to step back, which can throw your foot positioning off a little in its own right. Well, it does mine, because I havent' squatted long enough to ingrain the same pattern I guess.

    I hear you on the foot thing. I still love squatting out of a mono though because you can always shuffle your feet wider or narrower without having to step back, which can throw your foot positioning off a little in its own right. Well, it does mine, because I havent' squatted long enough to ingrain the same pattern I guess.
    Yep, IMO the unrack is so important that it would be silly of me not to devote some time to it over the next month...

    I did walkout with 405 before the meet and it felt heavy as ****.

    Unracked 402 at the meet and it felt like a feather.

    Love the shirt!!!!!!
    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-
