    Fourth Cycle Week Three - reps/sets

    Squat 2 Box (18") - 120kg 5*2
    3 Count Bench - 75kg 4*2
    Belt Squat - 60kg 5*3
    IYT - 6kg 10*3
    Neutral Grip Pulldown - 120lbs 12*3
    Leg Extensions - 60kg 15*4

    120kg felt good, no pain, good positioning.

    Needed a day like today to help get my head right. It's nice to feel good, and somewhat strong under the bar going into meet prep.

    Four weeks out!

    ...oh yeah, I forgot: I am going to Daytona, flights are booked and room is reserved!

    Meet Prep - Four Weeks Out reps/sets

    Squat - 60kg 5*3, 80kg 3*3, 100kg 2*3, 110 / 120 / 130 / 140kg *1
    Squat 2 Box - 125kg 1*3
    Kettlebell Squats - 36kg 10*2
    Wide Grip Pulldown - 110lbs 12*3
    Palof Holds - 60sec *3
    Leg Extn - 60kg 20*3

    Progressing without the box on the main work. For the first Squats without a box, the depth was OK. 140kg moved nicely.

    Got to get used to the decreased work load...again. It gets me every time. I don't know what to do with all the extra time available during a peaking cycle...#firstworldproblems !

    Meet Prep - Four Weeks Out reps/sets

    Bench - 50kg 3*5, 60kg 3*3, 70kg 2*3, 77.5kg *2, 85kg 1*2, 92.5kg x/*1
    Overload Single - 102.5kg *1
    Down Sets 82.5kg 1*3
    Larsen Bench - 70kg 5*3
    Single Arm Incline Dumbbell - 50lbs 12*2
    LTE - 35kg *15, 40kg *10
    Curlz - 35/40kg *15
    Overhead Tri Extension - 20kg 15*2
    Curlz 40kg 15*2

    Way too hot and humid today...right from Winter to Summer, with no Spring to speak of...grrrrrrrr.

    Missed at 92.5 the first time, and hit it on the second, but it was ugly. I'm blaming the heat and the fact that I'm sitting at 196lbs at the moment. I'm eating "well", I just can't eat enough at a sitting to make up for the increased "cardio" I'm doing these days.

    I'm trying out the overload single to see if I can get over my being so damn uncomfortable with a heavy weight in my hands. There really is no excuse for being stuck in the mid 90's for this long (don't ask, it can be measured in dog years).

    I hear you. Over the weekend was summer, which made Monday's H day particularly brutal. Thankfully Spring broke overnight, so today's L day is pretty nice. Winter returns tomorrow and hopefully holds on for Friday's M day.

    But I'm going to have to make some modifications to my normal mid-afternoon training session based on Monday's experience. Thankfully, not much humidity.

    Meet Prep - Four Weeks Out reps/sets

    Deadlift - 70kg 5*3, 120kg 3*3, 150kg 2*3, 175kg 1*2, 187.5kg *1
    Big Wheel Pulls - 203.5kg *1, 188kg 2*3
    Kettlebell Trap Bar Squats (I don't know what the fuck to call it, it's a strange exercise) 160lbs 12*3
    Single Leg Hip Thrusts - 50lbs 12*3
    Kroc Rows - 80lbs 10*3
    Leg Extensions - 70kg 20*3

    Pulls from the floor moved smoothly. I forgot to push through the floor to initiate the pull at 187.5kg. I need to be better about that.

    Got a single in at 203kg on the Big Wheels and then dropped it to 188kg to finish the proscribed sets. No sense being really stupid this close to Natls.

    The Kettlebell work is supposed to mimic a trap bar movement, but using Kettlebells instead of a Trap Bar. So it ends up being sort of a Squat...I have no idea what the training effect is supposed to be, but if coach puts it in the program, it get's done...
