Monday I practised what I had planned for my squat opener. It felt heavier than I would have liked, but I know it’s because I was really slacking last week due to some personal reasons, I was happy that I was able to do it 3X without it being too hard but it should have definitely moved faster than it did, I may open slightly lighter depending how I’m feeling next week. I also walked out what I’m planning to squat at the meet, it didn’t crush me so that was a bonus. It was definitely heavy but I know I will have it in me! I’m looking forward to stepping on the platform next weekend!
Tuesday I practised my planned bench opener. My groove felt off today most likely due to being sore as hell from squatting yesterday; I was feeling physically beat up this morning. Everything went okay once I got to my working weight but once again it wasn’t as speedy as I would have liked. I know the day of I will move it much faster. I need to rest, be mobile and I will be ready come game day.
Wednesday I was still sore as hell from squatting on Monday. Luckily, I did my last heavy deadlift workout two weeks ago. 415X3X3 felt fast and easy, everything felt smooth even though I was incredibly sore. Looking forward to competing next weekend!
Thursday was a quick and easy day. All reps felt fast and easy and I aimed to get blood flow in my upper half while getting a mini pump on. Feeling pretty good!
Friday, I died a little doing cardio and managed to feel much more mobile after a relatively grueling week. 1 week until Provincial’s, feeling excited!
