Since I've competed I haven't hit any true max effort lower work. I will probably get back in to it next week. I have been keeping up on my speed work and continuing to hit my weak points pretty hard. Over the next month or so, I will decide if I am going to do the Deadlift only at the Arnold Classic, like last year. Or, compete in the XPC Meet at The Arnold, like the two years before that.

8x2 With probably a little more rest than I should have taken between sets.
on my dynamic effort days my main focus right now is consistently getting a good set up and unrack. As well as focusing on my breathing and bracing. For years I would take a big breath into my lungs and my shoulders would rise and my midsection would shrink, giving me less stability. Now, thanks to the coaching I get on a regular basis at elitefts, I am breath into my belly making my midsection as thick as possible, giving me a lot more stability.
