Training and Meet Help

Headed out to the compound today to the UGSS. This UGSS was for those competing at the WPC Worlds or Relentless Detroit. It was a great group that included Youngs, Goggins, Kirschen, Schwab, Jordan Johnson, Julia and Matt Ladeski, Holdsworth, Schillero, Williams and Ano and Minna Turtiainen. Even though I wasn’t able to do much I got to meet Ano and Minna for the first time and got to talk with most of the teammates. All in all, while frusterating for me personally, I did have a good time. Hung out with JL while he was pulling and he is always impressive. Also worth mentioning were a huge pull by Ano (who hadn’t even trained if 2 months!), a huge pull by Goggins (hook grip no less), a huge benches (on 10-5-14) by Johnson, Kirschen and Schwab. Jordan and Williams also knocked out some big raw benches. Great to be a part of and I don’t get to see these guys enough. As for me, here is what I did…

Stationary bike – 10 minutes

Foam rolling

Rehab band work with elitefts™ Pro Mini Resistance Band

Leg press

Empty sled for 100
1 plate per side for 100 reps
2 plates per side for 50 reps
3 plates per side for 2 sets of 25 reps

Stiff leg dumbbell deadlifts

30’s for 3 sets of 25 reps

The leg press went surprising well. I kept my feet placement narrow and didn’t go very deep but I got a huge pump in my quads. My bodyweight has been hovering about 215 which just sickens me. I worked hard to get my weight up and now I just feel like its melting off. Sabrina provides a huge amount of support and encouragement every day. She keeps me on the safe side of the guard rails and moving in the right direction. I really don’t know where I’d be without her but I know it wouldn’t be good.
