    The Road Back rep/sets
    Cycle Four - Week Four

    SBD Saturday

    Squat - 120kg 4*2
    Bench - 82.5/80/77.5kg *4
    Paused Deadlift - 140kg 8*2
    Pendlay Row - 75kg 10*3
    Shoulder Cluster - 15lbs 10*3

    Rare to do a Deadlift session and and SBD Saturday back to back, but I wanted to see where I was from a "conditionaling" standpoint...I think I did OK!

    De-load coming up.

    Looks like I'll start a new training block with hypertrophy cycles, even though I'm going to do a local meet in January. The meet is a local event, and I'll be using it to get used to being on the platform again - without worrying about numbers.
    I think if I had a gun to my head I could go 155/95/205 today...

    Anyway, onwards!

    Singles felt great. My balky knee finally decided to stabilize, and I was able to get in a better position because of that fact.

    It's been an "interesting" last twelve months.

    starting strength coach development program
    10/19/20

    Cycle 5 reps/sets

    LBS - 120kg *7
    LBS - 107.5kg 7*2
    Tempo Pause LBS - 90kg 6*3
    Tempo 2 Tempo BSS - bw 10*3
    Wide Grip Pulldown - 85lbs 15*3
    Leg Lifts - 20*3

    Real training load. No concessions to age or infirmities. Conditioning is better than I thought. That Tempo Pause work is BRUTAL.

    Our gym is holding a meet in January, so I'm signing up - #thereturnofgymdad

    Not going to run a peaking program, we're going to train for Raw Natls as the ultimate goal, and this is just an opportunity to get back on the platform, and have "fun".

    Must say, I'm looking forward to the opportunity.

    We've got a number of people who are heading down to Virginia to compete in a few weeks. The atmosphere in the gym is always fun when a meet is around the corner, and folks are moving some solid weights!
