I wouldn't pay a huge deal of attention to any benching on MT! If your bench is the same as your squat you have problems! More likly you engage in 'team' benching or use leg ext as your main lower body training!

Good work Neil.

Deadlift- 220x1, 230x1, 240x1, 250x1, 255x1 (gym pb)
Squat- 120x2x2, 130x2x2, 140x2x3
Rolling thunder- 40x5, 50x3, RH-60/LH-55x1x2, 50x1x3 (5s holds)

Very cool session. It was an important one too. It will be the last time I max pull of the floor before my nxt comp and the 1st time I have pulled heavy of the floor since changing my stance 4 weeks ago. It didn't start out well as I had left my belt at home so did everything RRAAWW! So all in all very happy with the new gym pb. Havn't actually pulled more than 240 in a gym since dec'05 (Ho Chi Min City, Vietnam). The closer stance felt good with nice feeling of power of the floor and still the 2nd gear to lockout anything close to my knees. Bring on 600lbs!!!

Squats were nice. Don't mind pulling heavy without a belt but wouldn't like to squat heavy. Finished with some good support grip work on the RT.

Plenty of meets within traveling distance of your local. Where are you based? I live in center of Southampton. BPFPA runs meets in southampton.

Don't say it pal! Rest and rest. Take it easy, keep the engine ticking over and you'll still be good. May not gain any strength over next few weeks but you can keep what you got?

Am sure you'll do you best pal. Put your feet up when you can!

Not a problem pal!

Every 4th week I take it easy. This could mean very very easy (light curcuits) or still work hard but using higher rep ranges and no big 3 lifting. If I don't I'll just burn out and any niggles I have will get worse. I can no longer go balls to wall every week basically and expect to get stronger. Particluary as my main training is based on heavy max effort work, tough on the CNS. Its made a big difference to my progress adding the rest.

Of course there are other ways to control intensity, ie perodization, but this is one that works for me and is simple.

Medicine ball throws (chest pass)- 10x6 (pass-jog-pass, 2 min rest between sets)
MB chest pass into a wall- 5x2
Pulldowns- 10x2
Bent over raises- 10x3
Barbell curl- 5x4 (light weight despite reps)
Mobility work for shoulders.

Cool session. Finally go the MB out for some GPP style work. Verdict I need to do more! Out of breath and got a stitch by 3rd set lol! Plus I can work on my tan outside! Job's a good un.

LOL! Good ol' RnR!

Well the wraps give me about 10-15kg carryover. I am therefore going to use them as a tool to do some supra-maximal squat work. Same idea as doing a partial squat, ie more weight, but I get the benefit of doing a full ROM and use the same tech as I would normally squat with. In the past I would use a high box squat for the same purpose. Have only used them once so far!

I squat heavy ever other week and do speed/light work in the other week. I will rotate 3 lifts on my heavy sqaut days; squat, low box and squat with wraps, performing mostly singles and doubles.

I will not use them as a tool to protect my knees. Some people do, whilst some people claim prolonged use can actually damage the knees. Go figure!

Be carful as IP said. If you take more than your used to it may be okay to begin with but then you'll probably crash later on in the day. Not what you want before pulling! Maybe just have a good coffee before warming up for each lift?

As for eating try and get a nice amount down you in between each lift. It does depend how many flights there are though? If there's 3 then should be no probs.

I didn't heed any of my own advice at my last comp and had too much caffiene and now way near enough food over an 8 hour comp and bombed on the deadlift. It wasn't fun!

Lesson learnt; eat even if you don't have an appettite!!!!!

Good squating. 300 must be on the cards!

Bugger about the suit. Was it a size 40 titan? If so I can send you mine? Call it a long term loan till you get yourself sorted.

If you want me too I can PM me your details
