    On paper, having 80%+ of your training time doing the competition lifts makes sense if improving them is your goal... but if you're not mentally engaged, at some point, you're just going through the motions, and not getting what you should out of them anyway. You'll probably be fine, unless your technique in the competition lifts is awful. By awful, I mean they won't pass the judging criteria, not that the bar path could be better, or your mechanics could be more efficient. In that case, more good practice could probably help.

    For what it's worth, I'm enjoying the heck out of DoggCrapp, which is way different than the very PL-focused training I've been doing for years. So I definitely feel you on the change of pace.

    I was going to train outdoors at my house tonight but I believe I may have dug myself a CNS recovery debt that I haven't felt in years from deadlifts

    the plan is to rest up as best I can and do the damn program and try as hard as I can to at least attempt the meet in May

    Bench
    220x8x3

    Light press
    115x12,9,8

    Dips
    14,11,8

    Definitely didnít puke after so thatís a good sign although I did feel really sluggish and not much pop in my movements

    Going to try deadlift day Friday as per Andy Iíll just do one too set and some really light squatting and continue to see if my physiology improves.

    I went through your last few posts, but don't see anything catastrophic. What happened?

    sorry I haven't been updating.....long story short I programmed the deadlift poorly and got overtrained

    I lifted today and it went pretty good

    im doing Andys 5x5 program up until meet day so I dont think im going to log it but im still training lost a little bit of strength with the time off but it'll come back
