    Days like that can be so frustrating. I'll hit a big PR one day, then the next everything feels heavy as shit for no reason.

The only problem is that I hate going so slow and sometimes I just get lazy and skip them.
    I don't do them on a regular like I should. It seems like I only do them when my shoulder acts up. But that's going to change

    I'm on my second week of Cube training... way too early to tell a whole lot, but I do feel fresher for my workouts following the Max-Rep-Speed strategy.
    Feeling fresh for a workout is a good thing. I'm looking forward to it!

    I think so to, and I'm super excited to start it. I need a break from what I'm doing and this is the direction I was wanting to take. I decided to start it early and I just added 3 light weeks to front of the original program.

    Yes they can, and it sucks! Hopefully things will get better as I start to prepare for my meet.

    What's up April, glad to have you back. Everything is going pretty good on my end. What's going on with you? I'm doing a USPA meet the same weekend as yours.

    BW+10x10
    BW+10x10

    Done....Today I decided to start my training for my meet in August because I needed the change. So not a bad start, the 730 pull was a little harder then I expected, but I still got it. My goals have changed a little bit for this meet. I was wanting to compete at 242 so I can attempt to break the USPA 242 raw total record. But, now I'm going to decided the week of the meet whether or not I'll cut, depending on how much I weigh. It seems like lately, this sport isn't fun to me anymore. The training and dieting has become so hard for me. I think its because I put a lot of pressure on me. I tried to diet so I can get my weight down, but, I love food and I love to eat what I want when I want. So, I stopped doing it. I'm still going to eat clean, but if I want junk food, I'm going to eat it. I woke up today @ 247, and I ate like shit all weekend and drank a lot of soda, lol. So we'll see what happens the week of the meet. I love powerlifting, and I love to train. So now my main goal is to bring the fun back into it, so I can enjoy doing what I do.

    I've found coaching to be immensely rewarding. Helping someone achieve their goals, hit PRs, and succeed is more fun than I ever thought. Speaking of which, thank you again for helping my hit that bench PR on the platform!

    Dropping some of the pressure off yourself is key. I know you're never going to be the type that accepts less than the best on the platform. Not worrying about weight classes will help put the fun back into the meets.

    Hell, go up to 275 and bust 500 on bench!

    Not a problem, I enjoyed helping you out! I'm fortunate enough to have Tone helping me out again. As far as the weight class goes, it all depends on where my weight is at. So far it's looking pretty good. But we'll see! A 500 bench sounds amazing

    Thursday
    05.23.13
    Squat
    Jersey Iron
    WK1D3-Speed

    Squat vs. average bands
    Worked up to 300lbs of bar weight for 10 sets of 3

    Front squats w/SSB
    150x8
    200x8
    240x8
    240x8

    Lunges
    95x8
    145x8
    145x8

    Tri-plane squats
    BWx8
    BWx8

    Leg extensions
    35x15
    35x15
    35x15

    Leg curls
    35x15
    35x15
    35x15


    Done...Today was a pretty good day. My knee has been bothering me a little, so I put on my Chuck Taylors. My speed was on point and so was my form. With the Chucks on, I was able to open my stance up a little. I also moved my grip out and lowered the bar. This allowed me to sit back better. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks as the weight gets heavier.

    FYI, I wore my belt for the 10 working sets. I started to get a back pump around 235, so I figured it would be best to put it on.
