My name is Ryan Pelletier, and I live in Alberta, Canada and compete in the CPU (Canadian IPF affalite). I did my first meet in July where I went 9/9 for 172.5kg/120kg/190kg for a 482.5kg total. I recently finish my second meet a couple a weeks ago where I went 9/9 with 202.5kg/140kg/220kg for a 562.5kg total. I've been training for about 11 months now and I have mainly trained in a sheiko style which has left me with a severly underdeveloped back. The week after the meet I strained my piraformis in training and cannot pull much over 405lbs currently. With switching to the cube method I hope to be able to train around the injury while still developing my lifts.
RE Bench Day
This was a hell of a lot harder than I wanted it to be. less then one minute between sets gave me a good pump in my triceps and low bar from arching. Wasn't happy that I missed my 5th rep.
Got a good pump in my lats although I think it would have been more effective to do 20x5 instead of the way that I did it.
Did one to many sets as it was and I didn't even get a pump in my shoulders, the pump was in my triceps, so we now know where my problem lies
Overall good workout hit a good 225 rep PR I had never done anything more than 5 reps with it so I was happy. With all the rep work with the shoulders and lat work today my shoulder deel better then they have been. Hopefully I'll correct my douchebags shoulder. Tomorrow is a Arms and cardio day (Yes, You read that right) to bring up some of the weaknesses, back work will also be in order

Didn't really get a pump anywhere from these. 1 minute rest, I needed to concentrate on pulling shoulder blades together
Rolling Tricep Extensions
Good pump in my triceps. Harder than I thought but then again I haven't done any sort of rep work in the while.
Extremely hard. Biceps have terrible conditioning. Pump in both bi's and tri's was fucking terrible couldn't move my arms.
