    That's what I'm thinking. Next week I'm probably going to do some chain suspended GM's, and then the following week is meet week. I'm really looking forward to this meet, but I'm also super nervous because of the new things I've been trying.

    Nice way to cap off heavy dead training for RUM. You'll be smashing PRs very soon! At least an 1850 total!

    It actually does, especially since this time last year I've never pulled 700. I was more pleased pulling 705 after all those working sets.

    Tuesday
    02.05.13
    BP-WK6-Last heavy bench session

    3 weeks out from RUM6

    Bench press
    Barx20
    95x10
    135x10
    Working sets
    210x10
    275x5
    340x5-DONE

    Well, it looks like i'll be taking a token bench at the meet. All my sets felt fine with no pain. I just don't think my pec will be fully recovered for me to attempt a PR. I'm pretty upset and bummed out about it. I'm going to make an appointment to have it worked on, and we'll see how it goes. But for now, i'll still do the meet, but just focus on my squat and deadlift.

    Bad news Brian... but on the flip side, it will set you up for a huge PR on deadlift!

    Yeah, this shit sucks. I was actually hoping to get setup for a huge total PR. But, that'll have to wait I guess.

    Pull 750 and to hell with the bench. You have a lot of meets in your future and you'll set a new Total PR pretty damned quick. But I know exactly how you feel. A Total PR is pretty damned sweet.

    Haha, we'll see how my 1st and 2nd attempt go. A 750 pull sounds really good

    I need to take the time to let it heal up. There are plenty of meets I can attempt a PR total.

    Sorry to hear about the pec man, but like you and everyone else said there will be other meets. I'm positive you will smash squat and deadlift PR's at this meet. Get that pec healed up man.

    Awh man, hope the pec heals up quick.

    A 750 pull would be disgusting. Go get it.
    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

    Bet you're pretty miffed about that.

    Hoping it heals up quicker than you think, so at least your 'token' bench can be pretty big still!

    Thanks guys for the comments! I'm pretty sure I'll be ok to bench somewhere in the 3's. But, I'll see how it feels in the warmup room. I do have an appointment tomorrow, so I'll let you guys know what I find out.

    ****************************************
    Well, that's it for all my heavy training. I'm so glad it over, lol. This meet cycle was mentally tough with all the volume I was doing. Next week will be a nice deload week, and I need, I haven't taken a break in about 7 weeks. I'll post a video later of my last two sets.

    I definitely want to give a shout out to Chris Mason and AtLarge Nutrition. With out his supplements, I probably wouldn't of made it through this cycle. With all the heavy volume on the deads and then squatting 2-3 days later, would of killed me. I've been taking ETS, Fish Oils, Multi vitamins, Axcel (pre-workout), Results, and Opticen+ (post workout). All these supplements have been a huge deal for me in my recovery. Thanks Chris!!!

    Agreed. The Results, ETS, and Opticen are must haves. That is the only way my 40 year-old ass is making it through the Cube on a daily basis. I heard Jesus took some Axcel before he carried the cross. (That's gonna get me in trouble.)
