Push/Pull meet, Feb 24th 2012

#1 Postby Mini Forklift Ⓥ » Thu Feb 16, 2012 3:49 pm

One week to go, feeling great.

Found out they're doing Wilkes formula instead of weight classes, so I'll drop a little and will probably be somewhere around 142lb.

Goals are a 236.5 bench and a 429 deadlift, looking forward to it. Last heavy bench and DL session this afternoon, cheers MF.

Thank you !!

This is from my last heavy bench session a few days ago, I'm now a little under a week away from my push/pull meet. Should give me a good indicator of how I'm tracking towards the Canterbury Champs which are in mid-April 8)



I decided to include all of the 10 sets on the bench, worked up to 236.5. I also spent a little time talking you through my pre & post WO meals.

I also did 6 sets of conventional deadlifts after the benching (didn't video these), worked up to a comfortable 418lb. Goal for the meet is 429.

I love to watch the powerlifters at the gym. It doesn't look like anything I want to do but it is interesting to watch

Will drop a little weight over these last few days, was 147 this morning (and that was after I'd been to the toilet). Planning to compete this Friday at about 142-143. My support guy will video it, I'll edit it all together over the weekend and post it up for you guys.

Looking forward to it !!

Thanks, I'd like to better my DL and bench from my last meet.

Image

So that's my goal for this one ~ I'd be pretty happy with a 107.5kg/236.5lb bench and a 195kg/429lb DL. One day to go...

Didn't go the way I wanted, I wasn't feeling 100% all day yesterday and felt flat and light-headed come the evening.

Had to fight for a 105kg/236.5lb bench (missed 107.5) then couldn't hit any of my DL's (even warming up with them felt rough). Just one of those nights ~ never expected to struggle with the DL's as they're usually my strongest ?!

Will put the bench videos up over the weekend sometime, I can focus on the Canterbury Champs in April now. Chur bro's, MF.
