    2017-10-19 - Thurs (Bench emphasis)

    Time: 80-mins

    BW: 213.6

    Feelz: Good, just tired from too much work.

    Just over a week left, no more volume after this.

    C. Bench: 45x8, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 245x1, 265x1, 287.5x1 @8.5-9, 230x5 x 6-sets
    - Thinking 130/132.5kg (287/292lbs) will be a good safe second attempt. Posted video below in case anyone ever sees this and has opinions...

    P. Squat: 45x8, 135x4, 225x4, 335x4 x 6 sets

    OHP: 45x7, 95x7, 120x7x6

    Feelz: was feeling ok, back a bit tight, but had to get my workout in early to go boating with the fam...

    Squat: 45x10, 135x5, 225x5, 315x2, 365x1, 405x1, 425x1, 455x1 @9, 425x3(F)

    Back was tight/sore the entire time, but I basically ignored it, thinking after this session it's all recovery to the finish line. Everything was going well until the 3rd rep of 425, when my lower back just said enough. Unfortunately as it did, I felt a huge pain and lowered the weight. That effin' hurt! I have it on video, but not sure anyone wants to see a grown-ass man crawling around and laying in a fetal position on his platform .

    Spent about an hour on the living room floor, just trying to get any sort of movement, but couldn't despite 4(!!) Ibuprofen. Then just decided to eff it... bit the bullet and try to get SOME type of movement through the pain. Took a bit of time, but was able to start walking, moving around slightly, etc. Went down stairs, did 1 RDL with an empty bar... felt good, but painful.... did a few squats with an empty bar, felt a bit better.

    This sucks, might ruin all the plans for competition. I'm still doing it. If back doesn't recover I'll just squat/DL something really light and concentrate on the bench, since that's really what I've been trying to improve/test.

    Feelz: Back feeling much better; very tight in the morning and after prolonged bouts of inactivity. Didn't know how far I could go with squats... but needed to feel everything out to figure out if I need to lower the opener, etc.

    Comp Squat: 45x8, 135x5, 225x5, 315x2, 365x1, 405x1, 425x1 (192.5kg)
    - Was very careful... took my time, braced longer than usual, etc.

    Comp Bench: 45x10, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 245x1, 265x1 (120kg)

    MEET DAY!!!

    Feelz: Feeling good, slept well. Lower back is still sore, so that was playing on my mind a lot! Had to warm up with kilo's... which I never do, so it threw me in for a loop.

    Didn't cut, just didn't eat/drink anything until after weight-in.

    Weight: 96.36kg (105kg class)

    Squat: 3 for 3
    1st: 192.5kg/424.4lbs - Easy opener
    2nd: 207.5kg/457.5lbs [Meet PR] - I've done this several times in training @ 9, so knew it wouldn't be a problem
    3rd: 215kg/474lbs [Meet PR] - Based on how the 2nd attempt moved, I was certain I'd get it, was just really worried about the back. That's all I thought about!

    Bench: 3 for 3
    1st: 120kg/264.6lbs - Very happy I chose a low opener because the rack height was incorrect and threw me off
    2nd: 130kg/286.6lbs [Meet PR] - I've done this several times in training @8.5 - 9, so I knew I would have it
    3rd: 137.5/303.1 [Meet PR] - Was debating between 135 and 137.5, but based on training RPE I thought I'd be able to do 305@10, so decided to just go for it... yay!

    Deadlift: 2 for 3
    1st: 210kg/463lbs - Nice light opener. Forgot to wait for the down command... made for a funny situation.. thankfully with light weight!
    2nd: 225kg/496lbs [Meet PR] - I've done it at home, it moved quickly... didn't think there'd be an issue, despite the fail on opener
    3rd: 240kg/529lbs [Meet PR] - Was initially planning on doing 235/518, but since I rarely 'test' DL, I wanted to see what my limit is. 240 felt like an @9 at most! Damn...!!!

    Total: 592.5kg/1306.2lbs

    Previous total in Feb: 525kg
