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 with your training for your comp!

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 :)

What you been up to TALO?

How is your training going and what happened to your journal!?

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. :)

Ross86 05-12-2010 06:03 PM

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. :-/
