Decided I am not going to compete until the summer. I am going to attempt to get strong for once(of course, I could change my mind about 75 times between now and June, so who knows). I have written out a raw bench cycle to try and get my pathetic bench up a bit. I have tentative ideas about my SQ/DL work which I have not completely hammered out yet. I'll work on that more tonight. So, today I started my bench cycle and my damn gym was closed from all the snow. It took like an hour to get my car dug out and I was furious. Called Gold's gym and they were open so I went there. I think I am going to join there soon anyway, much better atmosphere.
CR bench cycle/Week 1 Day 1
V-bar Pushdowns(these cables are real light)
Rear delt laterals
3 sets of 12
3 sets of 12
I will be benching twice per week. I have the whole cycle written out. Today is the lighter day, Thursday will be heavier. Tomorrow I will squat in gear and then do some speed pulls sumo w/chains. I will also be trying to put on a few lbs to fill out the 181's. Hopefully I will be up to 187-188ish in a few months.
