Default Journal leading up to PL competition

I have a competition coming up on July 31st in Bristol, VA. I'm going to keep a journal so I can look at what I'm doing. I've not been following a specific template or program. Hopefully I'll be able to get my training sorted out by doing this.

Squats - 1X5, 3X3, 1X2, 1X3
RDLs - 1X12, 2X8, 2X5 w/ a 10 second hold at the top to finish

That's all I did tonight. I'm training in a barn at the house I'm renting. It has shaky floors, gaps in every piece of siding, no heat, no a/c, it's dusty... And it was windy, in the 40's, and raining like hell when I lifted this evening (7:30-9:00). The shitty training facility will be my most frequently used excuse for my lackluster training up until the meet.

Good luck.

What numbers are you planing on hitting ? I am assuming it's PL'ng and not strongman.

I'm doing one on the 31st also

Thanks guys. I'll go out on a limb and list my openers...I should be completely comfortable with these weights by the time the meet rolls around. I'm not sure about bench, but I can take a wild guess. There's no telling where I'll be with my bad shoulder 2 months from now though. Oh, and I'll be lifting raw of course.

bench - 250 to...275?
squat - 415
dl - 505

No, that would be too much like cardio. I just sit in an old rocking chair between sets.

Push press - 1X8, 3X5, 1X4
Bench press w/ swiss bar + chains (1-2 sec pause on the chest) - 3X5
BB rows - 1X8, RP set w/ 4 iterations

Looks like my volume is perpetually low. I need to add in more accessory work. :-/
