Hey everyone! I'm back!!!!
I started school again on the 5th and have been pretty busy since I got back into town. For those of you who don't know I was working out of province for the summer to pay for school.
Before I left I set up meal plans and had made it my goal to hit 200lbs by the end of the summer (or end of September at the very latest). Well, it didn't go so hot. The first month and a half of my summer went AWESOME! I was training hard and eating HUGE! I was up to 187lbs at my peak!
I thought for sure I'd hit 200! Just my luck though, I got put on two jobs where I was staying in Bumfuc|<, Nowhere and had no access to a gym. Pushups, situps, pullups at the playgrounds, etc. I did them almost everyday. But I quickly started putting on lots of fat because I was still eating 3500cals a day.
I'm now 180lbs. Really no big change from the begginning of the summer. Kind of sucks but whatever, I have my whole life ahead of me
I'm doing my first ever powerlifting competition on October 14th. I'll be training like a freaking madman until then. I'm pretty sure I'm going to come in last place though I'm hoping for: Bench - 230lbs, Squat - 250lbs, Deadlift - 400lbs. These might even be a little high. We'll see how the next 4 weeks go though. I'm pretty sure I don't have to set a number until I weigh in. I'll have to check though.
I'm doing a modified version of Korte's 3x3 to get ready for the comp. Basically it's Squat, Bench and Dead Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The program doesn't call for it but I'm adding an upper back/shoulder day on Saturday.
Well here's my workouts so far this week:
Squat – 5x5 160lbs
Bench – 8x6 145lbs
Dead – 6x5 200lbs
Box Sq – 8x5 140
CGB – 6x6 145
Dead – 7x5 232
The weights seemed a little light but I'm going to trust the calculator The volume decreases and the weights go up as the program moves along though so I'm not too worried. I've never squatted and deadlifted on the same day. It's HARD!!!!!!
Well I think that's it for now folks! Just remember, Never insult a popcorn vendor then ask for extra butter...
