Wanted to take and easy week and ease back into benching to see how the shoulder handles it and so far so good! Next step will be to start incorporating the kettlebell competition lifts next week and see how the shoulder handles the overhead work in the clean & jerk. Did some light snatches this week and it was ok so we’ll see. Friday 8/1/14: DE Bench 1. speed bench press w/ chains: 95x3 / 8 sets (3 different grips) 2. 3-board press: 95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 155x5 / 2 sets 3. chins x 30 reps 4. pushdown: 3x15 5. pulldowns: 3x12 6. laterals: 3x12 7. barbell curl: 3x8 8. med ball abs: 3 circuits Thursday 7/31/14: DE Squat 1. box squat w/ chains: 185x2 / 2 sets; 205x2 / 2 sets, 225x2 2. GHR: 3x10 3. pulldown abs: 3x15-20 4. kettlebell snatches: 16kg x 10+10 / 3 sets Tuesday 7/29/14: ME Bench 1. floor press w/ chains: barx10, barx5, 65x5, 95x3, 115x3, 135x1, 155x1, 135x1 / 2 sets 2. db bench press: 3x12 3. pushdowns: 3x15 4. chins x 30 reps 5. 1-arm row: 3x8 6. lateral raise: 3x8 7. hammer curls: 3x9-12 8. ab wheel: 3x10 Monday 7/28/14: No training - I travelled back from Austin today. Today would be DE Squats, since I’m taking it light this week I will skip ME squat work and just do DE on Thursday.
  11. Last workout of the final taper week for next weekend's meet in Austin, TX w/ Team Plantbuilt. Plan now is a very light squat / ab workout on Monday, and a very light upper body workout on Thursday in TX with the team. Generally I would not lift two days before a powerlifting meet, but since I'm doing deadlift only I will be able to get away with a light upper body session on Thursday. Friday, 7/18/14 - upper body accessory 1. close grip bench press: worked up to 95 x8 / 3 sets *chins x 12 reps 2a. db shoulder press: 3x8 2b. pulldown: 3x10 3a. pushdown: 3x12-15 3b. db curl: 3x8-10 3c. lateral raise: 3x10-12
  12. Thursday, 7/17/14 - deadlift 1. deadlift: 135x5, 185x3, 225x2, 275x1, 315x1, → opener of 385x1 *I’m changing my opener, see below 2. lat pulldown: 3x10 3. reverse hyper: 3x10 4. weighted abs: 3x20 *So today is the last taper workout going into the 7/26 meet. Originally I planned my attempts to be: opener x 385, 2nd x 410, 3rd x 435-445 depending on how the 410 went. I pulled the 385 and 410 last week and did 440 x 2 with reverse bands and things went well. Today the 385 felt heavier than if should have. First I jumped from 315 to 385 which could have something to do with it, but I wanted to see how it felt without taking 355 between them and saving some energy. I know I can hit the 410 so, to me it makes sense to take 365 as an opener, that way it’s not as big of a jump from 315 and I don’t have to waste energy on 355 to make the 385 feel lighter. This should set me up in a better position to make my 3rd attempt. We’ll see, but it sounds good!
  13. Week 12 of 12 week Team Plantbuilt - Naturally Fit Super Show Powerlifting Meet Prep Last week of taper. This is my last taper week going into the 7/26 meet, basically in the deadlift I will just do my warm-ups and take my opener. All the other training is just moderate effort so that I don’t negatively affect my deadlift. Plan for next week is very light squats and abs on Monday, then a very light upper body workout on Thursday after I get to Texas, weigh-in on Friday 7/25, pig out with my teammates all day, then kill the deads on Saturday, 7/26! Probably - 385 / 410 / 435-445 will be the attempts. Tuesday, 7/15/14 - bench 1. bench press: barx8, 65x5, 80x5, 95x5, 115x5 / 2 sets 2. pull-ups x 12 reps 3a. incline db bench: 3x10 3b. pulldown: 3x10 4a. pushdown: 3x10 4b. db. curls: 3x10 4c. laterals: 3x10 Monday, 7/14/14 - squat 1. squat: barx5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 155x5 2. deadlift: 155 x 3 / 3 sets 3. chins x 10 reps 4a.

  16. Sorry I haven't posted in a while! Since 6/6/14 I've turned 39 and also been SUPER busy with work and projects, but I've been getting my training in! I've had some shoulder issues with benching, so I've decided to do the deadlift-only event at the Naturally Fit Games with my Plantbuilt powerlifting team. It's kind of a bummer not doing the full meet but my shoulder can't handle the bench load and I've had an issue with it this past training cycle. I've backed off and it's feeling pretty good. So I'm just going to focus on my deadlift for this meet and bringing the shoulder strength back up slowly. As of now I'm competing in the deadlift-only 198lb class, submaster's division. My meet attempts will most likely be: opener - 385 2nd attempt - 410 3rd attempt - 435-445 (based on how the 410 goes; right now I have a current training max of 425, so these numbers should be do-able!) Here's my past month's training: Week 11 of 12 week Team Plantbuilt - Naturally Fit Super Show Powerlifting Meet Prep This week starts my taper into the meet on July 26! Deadlift-only, 198 lb. sub-masters class -- here we go!

Monday, 7/7/14 - squat 1. squat: barx5, 95x5, 115x3, 135x3, 155x3, 185x3 → I plan to keep squats and accessory work light so I can put the most emphasis on my deadlifting. 2. deadlift: 185 x 2 / 5 sets 3. chins x 12 reps 4a. GHR: 3x10 4b. ab bench: 3x25 Week 10 of 12 week Team Plantbuilt - Naturally Fit Super Show Powerlifting Meet Prep Deload week! Last deload before the taper into the meet.

  21. I used to wear Chucks for squatting when I used a very wide stance - I also pull in a sumo stance so the chucks worked well. Recently I've brought my stance in some and have been squatting in the Adidas Ironworks 2's and like them a lot. I still deadlift sumo and have been using a minimal shoe - a Merrell Trail shoe, and want to get a pair of New Balance Minimus cross training shoes as the soles are very thin and flat. Regarding deadlifting, some people who use a conventional stance like the weightlifting-elevated heel-shoes, but these would not be good for a sumo stance, for sumo deadlifts a thin, hard flat-sole or slipper is what most use. Good luck!
