    NZ Nationals is the 4th of August! (Well 3rd to the 5th but I compete on the 4th). So I have 3 weeks (2 training and one deload) I will be competing raw against the equipped guys so it should be fun. All about practice with the strict judging that will be also most definitely be occurring at the Oceania's in December.

    Thanks Luna! Yeah figured theres no harm. Bench has been average at best so a quick smash followed by rest may help!

    19 Days out from Nats...

    Deadlifts
    60kg * 5
    100kg * 2
    140kg * 2
    180kg * 1
    220kg * 1 - B from here.
    Work Sets
    250kg (550lbs) * 1 - not as fast as was hoping...
    260kg (573lbs) * 1 - tough rep so left it there, no point failing this close to comp
    240kg (529lbs) * 1 - drop set to work on speed/technique

    Bench Press - W1D2 Smolov Jr
    20kg * 10
    60kg * 5
    80kg * 3
    Work Sets - added WW
    100kg (220lbs) * 5 - 7 sets

    Notes/Thoughts:
    Odd day as deadlifts were tough and bench was fast as (far better than the 95's from Saturday). Figured it'd go the other way as the weight dropped, maybe not aye...

    Not long to go. One more heavy dead session left (next Mon or Tues), and two of squats (thurs or fridays). Still unsure if the bodyweight dropping is making me weaker, think strength is holding pretty well to be honest.

    Thanks Tom! BW is sitting at about 87.0kg (191.8lbs) - clothed before training - so I have practically lost more than I have to lose which is a nice way of looking at it.
