    Meet Prep - Three Weeks Out reps/sets

    Squat - 60kg 5*3, 80kg 3*3, 100kg 2*3, 120kg *2, 130 / 140 / 147.5kg *1
    Squat 2 Box - 130kg 1*3
    Kettlebell Goblet Squat - 40kg 10*2
    wide Grip Pulldown - 120lbs 12*3
    Leg Extension - 80kg 10*3

    Good Singles: to depth, and well under control. Nice to be able to hit 147.5kg with no hype, just taking care of business / another day at the office.

    Knee continues to feel good coming into, and out of these sessions

    Meet Prep - Three Weeks Out reps/sets

    Bench - 50kg 5*3, 60kg 4*3, 70kg 3*2, 77.5kg 2*2, 85kg 1*2, 93kg *1
    Assisted Overload Single - 108kg *1
    Down Sets - 85kg 1*3
    Larsen - 72.5kg 5*3
    Single Arm Dumbbell Incline Bench - 60lbs *10, 5*2
    LTE - 35/37.5kg 15*2
    Overhead Tri Extension - 20kg 15*2
    Hammer Curls - 70lbs 10*4

    Good day on the Bench. Got some acupuncture work done on my right shoulder, and it feels much better. Additionally, I've broken down and purchased some "weight gainer" from Optimum Nutrition...the extra easy calories and carbs are already making a difference as my weight is finally back over 200lbs for the first time in months after hovering around 195/6.

    Eat your way to a bigger Bench...who knew?!?!

    Meet Prep - Three Weeks Out reps/sets

    Deadlift - 70kg 5*3, 120kg 4*3, 145kg 3*3, 165kg *2
    Below Knee Pulls - 153kg 3*5
    Kroc Rows - 70lbs 10*3
    Leg Extension - 60kg 20*3
    Belt Squat - 65kg 5*5

    QL flared up again...grumble, grumble, grumble...

    No injury incurred, just very tight. Pulling anything higher the 165kg from the floor would have been imprudent.

    Meet Prep - Three Weeks Out reps/sets

    Bench - 80 /82.5 / 85kg *3
    Squat 2 Box - 120kg 1*3
    Belt Squats - 72.5kg 10*3
    Cable Hi Row - 40kg 10*5
    Leg Extn - 70kg 10*5
    Paused Leg Extn - 70kg 10*3

    My QL is extremely stiff, not painful...just stiff.

    Made Squats interesting, but 120 was a manageable rpe7.

    I forgot to pause the Bench, but it felt strong at rpe8.

    I figure if I can get inn this kinda work being somewhat compromised, I'm doing OK.

    Do you plan a short light week before the meet? Maybe some of the little tweaks will heal up. Good luck!

    Indeed, it's the normal progression.

    This coming week will be the last "heavy" week, and then the following week will feature openers only and light assistance work.

    Under normal circumstances, by the time the meet comes around, your body feels like ass to begin with. This QL issue is all pat of the left knee issue putting me in bad positions to pull. So it's something that I'll need to address post meet.

    The rest of me feels pretty good...

    Cranky knee today, plus being a little tired made the the squat at 150kg tough...thanks to the spotter for the assist.

    Meet Prep - Two Weeks Out reps/sets

    Competition Bench - 50kg 5*3, 65kg 3*3, 75kg 2*3, 82.5kg *2, 90kg 1*2, 95kg *1
    Down Sets - 85kg 1*3
    Larsen Bench - 75kg 5*3
    Single Arm Dumbbell Incline - 45kg 10*2
    LTE - 30kg 15*2
    EZ Bar Curls - 30kg 15*2
    Overhead Tri Extn. - 16kg 15*2
    EZ Bar Curls - 30kg 15*2

    95kg moved really nicely...unfortunately my ass came of the Bench ever so slightly. That said, I got this lift, with commands, and it wasn't even hard.

    Dialing back the assistance work as we start the taper.
