    Volume Block - reps/sets

    Deadlift - 70kg 5*3 / 120kg 3*3 / 140kg 2*2 / 160kg *2 / 180kg *1 rpe8

    Single Leg Hip Thrust - 30lbs 12*3
    Cable Revs Fly - #5 12*3
    Planks - 60 sec *3

    Today was a "hard" session. Volume Deads and eccentric work bordered on CARDIO, especially with my continued focus on short rest intervals. I'm tired...

    Volume Block - reps/sets

    LB Squat 137.5kg *1
    Safety Bar - 85kg 8*3
    Belt Squat - 55kg 15*4

    Cable Hi Row - #9-13 *10
    Cable Mid Row - #13-17 *10

    Side Planks r/l 45 seconds *2

    I don't like Side Planks!

    Survived the first volume day. I like the idea of settling the stage with a "heavy" single, and basing the rest of the work off that.

    My knee is still being a pain in the ass, but it's not hindering training which I find really odd.

    Let's do this!!!

    And I'm officially on record as planning on hitting a 400lbs Squat in a competition by the end of 2022...(it worked with the 500lbs Deadlift, let's see if I can pull this one off as well)

    More De-Load fun and frivolities

    Earlier in the day I sat down with my coach, and recapped the meet. We're both happy with the results, and realize that there was lot's more available.

    With that realization in hand, we set a goal of preparing for Raw Natls in Daytona. Obviously we have to get lucky due to the limited field, and the fact that only the top three from the previous year are guaranteed places. I can't attempt to sign up until March...and then I'll have to have good fortune getting my request in as early as is allowable.

    But we'll plan our training as if I'm going, and if it doesn't pan out, we'll find another meet to go to....but I'd hate to break a three year streak of competing at Raw Natls.

    Lots of fun was had. I was surprised at how well my knee felt, and how it held up throughout the day.

    Yeah, with some good fortune going forward, I'm shooting for that 400lbs Squat!

    Mustache Mayhem 2021 Recap

    For those of you who are following:

    9 for 9

    Squat - 150kg
    Bench - 97.5kg
    Deadlift - 205kg

    I'm calling them all PR's, considering what I've been through the past year plus. Based on prior performances, I'm within 10% of my maxes on Squat and Deadlift, and right on my Bench max.

    For being knicked up, and beat down over the last eight weeks, I had a great day. My anticipated 3rd attempts were 5kg lower across the board, but I moved the openers so easily that my coach changed the 2nds and 3rds to reflect this new found "pop". I attribute the new found "pop" to the two Aleves I took upon waking this morning at 0 Dark Thirty...that and copious amounts of pre-workout.

    Probably had 155 / 157.5kg in me on the Squat. The Bench flew (for me), and 100kg was there for the taking. Might have been able to pull 210kg. But for not touching anything close to these weights since a year ago October 2019, these are numbers that I can appreciate.

    Meet Week rep/sets

    Squat - 100kg 1*3
    Bench - 62.5kg 1*3
    Deadlift - 125kg 1*2

    Everything that happens on Saturday is all dependent on how my knee handles the day.

    Most important item on the agenda: get a total!
