    RTS site for training log still isnt giving me access...I think they may have made it private. Not a big deal so I just have to type it out.

    On a side note, I can feel my work capacity is getting better. I am not as fatigued from set to set. Im attributing this to the past 3 weeks (volume phase) which was at a lower intensity and higher volume than the previous meet prep cycle.

    Saturday's training:

    1. CG Bench

    15x12 7
    25x12 8
    25x12 9
    20x12 8.5
    20x12 10

    Wide Grip Seated Rows (90 sec rests) - 4 sets of 10 with 11plates

    Upright Rows/DB Curls (60 sec rest) - 2 sets of 10/8 with 55/15lbs, 1 set of 12/8

    ER/IR - 2 sets of 14/16

    1. Reverse Light Band Squat
    295x3 7
    330x3 8
    365x3 9
    355x3 8.5

    Upright Row/Fat DB Curl (60 sec rest) - 3 sets of 12/8 with 55lb straight bar/15lb DBs

    Getting stronger for sure. Next week is the last week for the first part of the cycle for Ill reach for some PRs before the deload.

    W6D4 (MI/LS)

    1. Reverse Light Band Squats
    295x1 7
    335x1 7.5
    370x1 8
    405x1 9 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqKdRHdJ1ik
    395x1 9.5

    Pretty good PR on these. Nice way to end the cycle.

    295x5 8
    325x5 9

    175x7 8.5
    170x7 8.5

    HLR (60 sec rest) - 2 sets of 8, 1 set of 7, 1 set of 6
    Hips with Monster Mini - 1 set of 10 4-ways
    ER/IR - 1 set of 14/16

    This is the end of the first 6 week cycle...meaning next week is followed by a deload. This seems like good timing as sleep has been a bit rough lately and just feeling a bit fatigued in general.

    I feel like these last 6 weeks were a success. Everything has gone up and I did a good job handling the volume phase by keeping the RPEs <9. Weight this morning was 159.5 on my scale, which means 164 on the meet scale, so everything is fine.

    Time to take this deload week to make sure everything is planned out fully leading up to the meet.
