    So, I've got a meet in 12 weeks on the 18th of September. I'd like to squat 300kg in wraps.

    Had a recent meet where I did this:



    After about 3 weeks of actual training.

    Let's do this.

    I think I just got a glimpse into what training will be like when I'm 60 and have picked up a few actual injuries.

    It's fucking terrible. I think I'm just not going to get older, that should sort it.

    Everything hurts. My knees and hips, elbows and shoulders. In particular my right knee and left hips and adductor.

    Squat
    20kgx2x10
    60kgx2x5
    80kgx2x5
    100kgx2x3
    120kg 3/2

    Gave it a rest there. Every rep felt terrible.

    Bench
    20x2x10
    60x5x5

    Not terrible, but I couldn't really arch because my hips hurt too much.

    Press
    2x2x10
    40x5x5

    Felt decent.

    Deadlift
    70x5x5

    Actually felt good.

    Banded Chins 5x5
    Hammer Curl 10x3x10

    Should probably note that all weights will be in kilograms, and I probably won't bother to note that most of the time.

    Worked up to a 200kg single in the deadlift. Hips and knees didn't hurt, so that was good. Felt slow, but that should be expected.

    My face hurts. Still not recovered from being sick last week.
    Been working on my bridge. I like them, think I'll keep working on it.

    Squat
    25kgx2x10
    75kgx10
    105kgx3x5
    Feels better than last time. Hips don't hurt so much.

    Deadlift
    60x5
    100x3
    Low back was way too fried.

    Press 40kgx5x10
    Easy. Tried a new grip.

    Hammmer 15x5x10
    BB Curl 30x3x10

    Think I'm going to give it a week or two and see how I feel. If I'm still too wrecked and can't squat I'll have to pull out of the comp.

    My face hurts.

    Bench
    20x2x10
    60x10
    80x5
    90x3x10

    Easy. This is the start of my bench cycle. Aiming for a 150kg bench. Might actually get it this time. Felt like nothing, which is good.

    Press
    20x10
    45x5x10
    Still easy.

    Banded Chinups 3x10
    Trying new things.

    Also did some concentric only work for my elbow tendinitis. We'll see if it works or not.

    SQUATS FOR THE SQUAT GOD! GLUTES FOR THE GLUTE THRONE!

    Definitely not used to actual training, these kicked my ass. Also too way too long.

    Deadlift
    60x5
    100x5
    140x3
    162.5 8/8/9/1/1

    Used straps. Was being pretty lazy with my setup, so I did a few singles to work on it.

    Close Grip
    20x2x10
    60x10
    80x3x10

    Press
    20x10
    40x5
    60x5x3

    Hammer Curls.

    Looking forward to 120kg --> 300kg in under 12 weeks. You should pretend you never squatted before and write an e-book afterwards.
