    Nice plan with the bench opener. Better to be smart about it.

    I went last week and he used the Graston technique on it. It feels pretty good and I was able to work up to 385x1.

    I had to look that up to see what it was. Looks pretty interesting. Sounds like you'll get at least 405 on bench at the meet.

    It is and it can get pretty painful. I'm actually hoping to go for more on my second attempt. But I'll see how my opener goes.

    Just tried a little on my arm with a butter knife... not the same thing, but hey, it was something. Gotta say, almost all the muscles have the nasty, gritty feeling. Last time I had a massage, the therapist was asking if I had messed up my triceps. Each time he ran his thumb over, it sounded like popcorn. That is some gritty muscle!

    Haha, I've never thought about trying it myself. I should because I'm having some other issues that could use some work.

    That's it! This completes my training cycle for RUM6. I did all that I could do. I tried alot of new things and trained with some injuries. I hope I made the right choices in the way I setup my meet prep. This morning I weighed 250 and that was after eating a bunch of crap during the day. Now it's time to rest up and work on my mobility and some stretches. A big thanks to everyone who has supported me during this cycle and thanks to Chris and AtLarge Nutrition for their AWESOMe supplements!!!! I believe without them, this training cycle would of beat me down.

    I'm actually really excited to compete. I'm more excited to just compete and witness some huge lifts then anything else. RUM6 is going to have some big totals!
