I only lasted 15mins on the treadmill though, I probably should have just stayed in bed !!

Anyhow I'm just back from the gym, got a quick early-evening session in as I'm feeling a lot better now.

Really happy with how my bench is coming up, last set I got an easy triple with 187 and a good pause between each rep; I'll be starting to train paused bench a lot more now. Will type it up later, gotta go and pick up the kids from the in-laws now.

Great couple of training sessions (will type them up soon).

Hit 192.5 for an easy triple on the bench this afternoon, that was completely raw as well. Followed it up with 352 for another easy triple on deficit deadlifts, and then worked my way up to some heavy leg pressing.

Image

Still got 10 reps for the heaviest last set. I'm going into my 12 week prep with some pretty decent strength, possibly better than when I've trained for previous meets. That's encouraging :D

You prefer opposite grips for your deadlifts?

Gives me more power and stability ~ underhand/overhand grip is actually heaps more common in powerlifting than a standard grip. Take a look at some photos or videos of people deadlifting and you'll see what I mean.

Couple of training sessions to log, both of them kicked butt (without particularly kicking my butt). I'm recovered from them and ready to hit legs tonight, first day of my 12 week prep. FOCUS.

so are you marathoning at all now? I did sooo many Half's , I lost count (I live in So Cal...they have one at least every month somewhere, and so for years (1993 - 2009) I did like 4 - 8 per year minimum...crazy fun and that doesn't count training runs)...but only four full's, and at 23miles my right hip gives out...all 4--and then in 2009...my insides just up and quit on me- after like 27 years of running-Its why I love the stairmill so much..its the only thing that even comes close to replicating a good, long, hard run ( gawsh, that sounds kind of naughty) saw you were at Kyles thread....I am trying to get him to not focus on the form and instead just enjoy the run-- (he's here in San Diego so I see him and his mom frequently)...he isn't there...yet. ..not logging my own workouts on here anymore...but back in the gym with 45 - 1 hr cardio sessions and 30 -40 minutes of 5 day body work out..man, getting injured at 50 sucked rear end. Don't do it.Still tiny and in shape, but up 5 lbs and a few BF% 's, but all good...part of the crazy ride known as life Tell me you are one of the dads that pushed his kids in a baby runner when they were babies!!!
Thanks for always being so inspiring and motivating!

Any suggestions for a light exercise for the back of the shoulder? I'm thinking the crackling back there when I roll my shoulders is more than just my body being weird..lol

Reverse pec deck flyes and rotator cuff work with dumbbells should help out :)
