    RPS Meet 11/3/12. 13 - Weeks Out
    Week 1 (Box Squat/Briefs/2 Blue Bands)
    Barx10
    145x5
    235x5
    145 & Added 1st Band x 3
    145 & Added 2nd Band x 3
    All sets w/ 2 Blues
    235x2
    325/2x2
    375/2x2
    425x2

    Deadlift (85% for 5 sets of 3)
    315x3
    405x3
    505x3
    585x3
    640x3
    640x2 (Plates began sliding and messed with my grip on the right.)
    640x6 When I went to pull the next set my plan was to do 4 to make up for the miss. However, it went really easy and I decided to keep going. Stopped with 1 or 2 left in me. Should have pushed for 1 more rep. Would've been a Rep PR. My best pull is 770. Best reps I've done is 700x3 which is 769.93. 640x6 is 767.87. Hindsight is 20/20.

    Did alot of introspection in the last month. Opened myself up to my training partners and asked them to rate me on a few things. As I expected, my ratings coincided with theirs. My strength and technique are great. My head, at least on the squat, is what fails me every time. I can hold 850 over my face without blinking an eye. Put it on my back and I panic. Unfortunately for me, mental is the hardest weakness to have. So this cycle I setup with alot of challenges. Achievable challenges that I can hit and build confidence on going into the meet. I will do this meet come hell or high water even if it means totaling 1000.

    Tone, I am the same way on the squat buddy. It's weird if ya think about it, your weight is secure on the back not in just your hands and the legs, back and all the posterior chain are MUCH MORE MASSIVE, but I get under the mono and freak too with big weights, that I will take any day on the bench, so it's not just you buddy! Training looks great I didn't know you had a huge pull like this that's awesome!

    Mindset is crucial indeed, but at your level, you can almost go autopilot and not even think about it.

    Stay confident throughout Tone.

    750xmiss. Shirt just can't take that weight. Need to get it sent to Ame and have her restitch it. Overall weight felt fine though. Plenty of time to get under weight before the 11/3 meet.

    Can be hard to make the mind come round. A focus on it and knowing its there are key. I am sure you will train the mind well too bro - increase that confidence

    Stopped here because I felt it alot in the adductor I tore a couple of months ago. This movement should definitely help me strengthen the insides of my thighs.

    Overall really happy with the progress on new accessory days. I feel better, my joints feel better, I'm slowly getting in better shape, and I'm definitely stronger.

    It's all good, I totally understand. Everything on my end is great. Our newbie will be 3 weeks tomorrow and she's already changing and growing. Training is going pretty good, this Florida heat is kicking my ass. Best of luck with everything!

    Looking strong Tone.

    Fifteen days until we see the results of your programming. All the work is pretty much wrapped up. Im fu*king ready.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    RPS Meet 11/3/12. 12 - Weeks Out
    Week 2 (Box Squat/Briefs/2 Blue Bands & Green Band)
    Barx10
    145x5
    Bar & Blue Band x 5 (About 240 at top)
    2 Blue Bands x 2 (About 480 at top)
    2 Blues Bands & Green Band x2 (About 600 at top)
    145x2
    255/2x2
    285/3x2

    That was it. I was supposed to pull 50% for 8x2 but didn't have it in me. It's been a long time since I've been under band tension like that and I wore me down to the bone. I've really enjoyed pulling lately so it was hard for me to pull back. Crew had a great day overall with 5 guys hitting openers for the 9/8 meet. It's going to be a good year for the Jersey Iron crew. Everyone is excited to put our name on the map. We're not BIG, we're not Westside, but we'll build our name off our numbers and be proud.

    Absolutely Tone and I had planned to anyway. I have a few things already but I will wait until after the meet and compile a full report. I have loved it. I hope I do it/you justice.

    Doing your best does everything justice. Kick ass JM. I hope you made the gains you were looking for! If you decide to go with it again I promise to be around more this time to bounce questions and things off of. Looking forward to seeing what you've built!
