    Squats - My oldest borrowed my Titan knee sleeves for a comp he had last weekend on Vancouver Island. He still wasn't back yet as he was making a mini holiday out of the trip. I went to put on my old SBD's and found they don't fit anymore?? Apparently my calves have grown over the last 8 months or so since I couldn't slide them over my calves. Since I planned on going heavy I'll push this workout off until he returns.

    265 + 110lbs drop off weights - 1,1,1, - 375lb negative on the 1st rep - since I didn't squat spent a little more time on benching

    75-6,10,5, All over the place rep wise with these. Should have warmed up with a lighter weight first. Ran out of gas last set, but taking short rests.

    Lat cable pull down - super setted these with the OHP
    180-10
    225-10,10,

    155-5
    265-2

    Leg press
    sled-10
    180-5
    360-5 Adding 2 wheels each side at a time so warm ups don't take so long
    430-8 - Thought this was 500 but forgot to load one side - seemed light for 500...
    500-8,8,10, Working for these!

    Close grip bench - super setted with leg press
    Bar-10
    155-5

    288-5,5,5,5,5

    Sitting DB OHP - super setted these with lat pull downs

    65-10,10,10, 1st time doing these this way for many years. Thought it would be harder than standing - might be easier.

    As soon as I started to warm up for squats I knew today would be a tough workout. I pushed pretty hard last week and was probably due for a deload. Today my body said yes, you need a deload.

    I'm trying to stay in competition shape because I may be selected for the Canadian team for Worlds again which is being held in October in South Africa. I'll find out hopefully soon. Regardless this will be my last year of competing. It's too much commitment, and frankly is taking too much out of me. I have a full time job, and a farm on the side, so the energy I spend lifting heavy weights and the recovery process doesn't leave me with enough energy to do everything.

    Squat
    Bar-10
    155-5
    265-5
    375-1
    430-5 - I probably could have cranked out another couple of sets, but felt very burnt out and decided not to push things - Vid of 1st set below


    Calf raise 155-25

    Bench
    Bar-10
    155-5
    265-1 - Similar to squats this just felt too heavy. I stopped here despite having planned to go higher
    155-10,10, - Just did a couple of light sets to keep mobile

    Lat pull down
    135-10,10, these were super easy too.

    Deadlifts on Wednesday will likely be a big deload as well. Might as well maximize recovery.
