So, I just began prepping for my next mee in November. Won't go into to much detail, but I am running a full 14 week old school western priodisation program for squat and dead, and I will begin benching per the 14 week cycle in week 5 once the program goes to sets of 5. For now I am doing a modified extended Smolov for bench which has added some much needed poundage very quickly to a hilariously low bench.
Squat, depth a little inconsistent, been a while since I've squatted without knee wraps so this felt a little weird. Fuck 10 reps.
Also going back to flat soled shoes instead of the heeled shoes. Just got the metal shoes and they shit all over any other flat soled shoe I have ever used.
Bench... oh bench. I am the worlds worst bencher. Pull 717. Bench 292. Yeaaaah.
Con deads... Been a damn long time since I've done these in a serious fashion. You can see years of ingrained Oly lifting habits in this pull. Ignore retarded head movements, I was experimenting with where I looked.
Sumo deads, I really need to get my hips down. I have a very distinct pulling style, but even though I have a huge deadlift, it hasn't been moving. So I'm going to break my deadlift back down and spend the next 17 or so weeks building it back up to 700+ by pulling the bar instead of the ballistic style I have been doing. I am aware I need to get my hips lower to drive the bar off the ground. Need much stronger hamstrings.
any thoughts appreciated.
Prescribed numbers for anyone interested.
