    Well, its kindve a mystery since I was told on 3 different occassions it was in the mail. Very disappointed with her. Thank God I found a borrowed shirt that works or Id be pulling out of the meet because of her. Even if I get it back in time, im staying with the borrowed one.

    4/25 ME Squat Deload

    Supposed to be a total deload this week, but due to the screwed up training cycle, I decided to pull heavy today since I havent got that much in lately.

    Raw Squats
    145x5
    235x5
    325x5 x2

    Pin 1 Rack Pulls
    225x3
    315x3
    405x3
    Suit Bottoms
    495x2
    585x2
    Straps up
    635x1
    675x1

    About 3 inches off the ground. Tough spot to pull from for me. So im happy pulling this weight.

    4/28 ME Bench

    135x5
    225x5
    315x1
    365x1
    Slingshot
    405x1
    Shirt
    495x1 3brd
    545x1 2brd
    600x1 full (slow)
    625x0 x2

    Benched again tonight trying to get work in the shirt. Was a rough night and felt totally off. 600 took forever to touch and was a slow press. So added more weight to get it down quicker, and both attempts had to be bailed on at the chest. After reviewing the vid of tonights presses and the 635 press from Thursday, plus the pressure/pain that caused me to bail, I found that Im trying to touch too low. My hands are forward of my elbows at chest level, almost to the dumping point. Its putting way too much stress on my forearms. So, im giving it another go Thursday to try a correct the problem.

    Good to get this bench sorted out before hitting the platform. You will dial it in.

    BW this morning is 210, right on track. In other news, I picked up a sponsor this week. Primal Nutrition, The#1 Sorts Nutrition Shop in the Philly area. Very happy to represent their company. Almost time to go to work.

    RPS South Jersey Rumble

    After one of the craziest training cycles, wasnt really sure what to expect this meet. If you follow my log, I only had 3 weeks training in a borrowed shirt due to some issues. Made a 19lb cut which was my biggest yet. Woke up the morning if the meet and my legs felt weak. But after I got in and started to warm up, it all came back quick. Squats went off perfect and went 3/3 with 805,845,875. Definitely had 900 but didnt want to chance missing and having to make up those lbs later. Bench had me nervous all day, but opener of 585 was a smokeshow. Took 605 on second and was just as easy, but got reds for butt lift. Third took it again but got out of groove and my left elbow couldnt lock out. Pulls opened and easy 600 620 for second to secure the #1 spot, but missed 650 due to a small hitch. Really great weekend for the whole Jersey Iron Crew.

    5/24

    Its been a quiet week training this week after the meet. Actually got fairly sick and my BW has been sitting around 208-210. Went in Monday and did some real light upper movements. Today went in and squatted up to 325x5 for 2 sets. Still feeling weak from being sick, so just hung out and helped the team.

    Had a few callouts already since taking the #1 spot lol. Im thinking about doing the WestSide Pro Invitational August 16th which is only 12 weeks away. If So, ill figure out a 10 week cycle and get right back to it. 2150 will be the mark.

    235x5
    325x5
    415x3
    505x2

    225x3
    315x1
    405x1
    495x1
    495x3
    495x5 rep pr

    Cable Ab Pulldowns
    130x12 x4

    Stayed raw today. Was going to work up heavy, but my right groin was giving me problems and I was wobbly from it in the hole. Most likely from the lack of raw work due to the geared cycle. Shit just got a little weak. So I dropped the weight and repped out. Conv pull feels real good and continuing with the beltless work. Ill take a little pr this early.
