My new squat suit came in on thursday (metal v-type) and I gave it a go on friday. I started out by working to a high box, straps down, then went lower and lower, then put straps up and did the same thing, then finally took the box away. I worked up to it like this. I'm freakin PUMPED!!!!
*add v-type squatter, 14'' box*
335x1 +10lb PR all time
*straps up*, 12.25'' box*
385x0 - lost groove
*no box, add wraps*
385x1 ++60lb PR all time!!
Deadlift sumo - straps up + wraps
365x1 absolutely smoked
405x1 +25lb PR smokeshow
I'm really happy that I pulled 4pps, and hit a total of 1020.
I have a meet on May 4th that ive been training for. I'm going to squat 3-4 more times in the suit, hitting my opener on the 3rd session, then either doing 1 more light session with straps down, or just going raw before the meet. I'm not benching in a shirt since I didnt have the money to buy it at the time but I plan on getting one after the meet (just got a new job) and maybe competing again in december in full gear. I met Louis Levesque today at the CPU Nationals and he took all my measurements and stuff for an F6 or Fury.
I have a couple questions about when it comes to meet day. When i'm warming up, how should I do it? If I plan to open with a geared 345 squat, raw 205 bench, geared 385 deadlift, what should I be warming up with in the back?
Btw, i'll be competing at 82.5kg, sub-junior
Anyways, thanks in advance.
