My name is Ryan Pelletier, and I live in Alberta, Canada and compete in the CPU (Canadian IPF affalite). I did my first meet in July where I went 9/9 for 172.5kg/120kg/190kg for a 482.5kg total. I recently finish my second meet a couple a weeks ago where I went 9/9 with 202.5kg/140kg/220kg for a 562.5kg total. I've been training for about 11 months now and I have mainly trained in a sheiko style which has left me with a severly underdeveloped back. The week after the meet I strained my piraformis in training and cannot pull much over 405lbs currently. With switching to the cube method I hope to be able to train around the injury while still developing my lifts.

RE Bench Day
Bench
5x1x123
4x1x154
3x1x185
2x1x231
1x1x262
10x1x225
4x1x225

This was a hell of a lot harder than I wanted it to be. less then one minute between sets gave me a good pump in my triceps and low bar from arching. Wasn't happy that I missed my 5th rep.

Lat Pulls
5x1x52
4x1x65
3x1x78
2x1x98
1x1x111
17x1x110
12x1x110

Got a good pump in my lats although I think it would have been more effective to do 20x5 instead of the way that I did it.

OHP
20x4xBar
20x1x55
17x1x70

Did one to many sets as it was and I didn't even get a pump in my shoulders, the pump was in my triceps, so we now know where my problem lies

Overall good workout hit a good 225 rep PR I had never done anything more than 5 reps with it so I was happy. With all the rep work with the shoulders and lat work today my shoulder deel better then they have been. Hopefully I'll correct my douchebags shoulder. Tomorrow is a Arms and cardio day (Yes, You read that right) to bring up some of the weaknesses, back work will also be in order

Barbell Rows
10x8x95

Didn't really get a pump anywhere from these. 1 minute rest, I needed to concentrate on pulling shoulder blades together

Rolling Tricep Extensions
20x5xBar

Good pump in my triceps. Harder than I thought but then again I haven't done any sort of rep work in the while.

Hammer Curls
20x1x20
20x1x12
20x3x10

Extremely hard. Biceps have terrible conditioning. Pump in both bi's and tri's was fucking terrible couldn't move my arms.
