WTF? When did this happen?
That's right, I've finally jumped train into the PL world.. Enough dieting down to 10%, I'm finally just going to embrace the fat and see how strong I can get..
I've got a full meet scheduled for 8/1/09, pending my hip issue doesn't set me back on squats, otherwise it'll just be a push/pull.. I'll be competing RAW and hoping for a 1500lb total at approx 260-265lbs.. not the best total, but not totally horrible either..
Once this meet is over, I plan on dropping down to the 242 class and hopefully increasing up to a 1700+ total over the next year.. If I can, I'd love to get down to the 220 class with that total, but I think that might be too much dieting and strength loss.. I'll play it by ear..
I still train with a decently high volume load as I'll probably never be happy with my size, but I've implemented semi-westside by doing DE and ME work, etc etc.. just stay tuned, you'll see what I mean.
I started doing box squats which has really improved my posterior and taken alot of pressure off of my knees so I can go heavy again, Only problem is a ME box squat workout I had 2 weeks ago jacked up my left hip. The highest I had previously gone was DE boxes @ 335lbs and I ramped it up to 495x1 for a ME box which really wasn't even that hard, but I'm thinking my hip issue is because my tendons just weren't ready for that big of a jump, stupid me.. I've been stretching and it seems to feel better.. some days better than others. We'll see how squats feel this week..
Anyways, today is Week 1 back from a deload and today is ME bench/chest.. I'm not going hardcore meet prep because of the sudden decision to enter, I'll just treat it as another ME saturday training day.. Today's workout will be posted in about 5-6 hrs when I get back from lunch/training..
