    Thursday

    Deadlift
    2x3 @ 385
    3x3 @ 365

    Woke up 30 minutes earlier than I normally do since I had to be at work early. I had meant to get up an hour early, but I overslept and was in a bit of a rush. It was cold as fuck out and I didn't get my normal pre-lift coffee so the day did not start off well. Weights felt slow as shit and I wasn't too happy with my performance today

    Squat
    3x5 @ 275

    High Bar Squat + TKE
    4x8 @ 225 + EFS Light Band

    These continue to suck balls, but can't beat the quad pump

    Friday

    It was still cold as balls today, but I managed to find a small heater to bring into the garage with me. It didn't do much to keep me warm, but did let me unfreeze my hands between sets.


    Bench Press (no feet)
    305x1



    My goal is to hit 315 without my feet on the ground before my competition prep ends. It's a bit of a lofty goal and I won't be crushed if I don't hit it. I just think it would be a cool accomplishment

    Competition Bench
    5x5 @ 235

    Close Grip Bench
    3x7 @ 215
    2x7 @ 205

    BB Incline Chest Supported Row
    4x10 @ 205

    Band Facepull
    3x12 @ EFS Average Band

    305 with no leg drive is no joke, I'd probably fall off my shitty bench if I tried that.

    It's funny because I've only benched 300+ 5 times in my life. The first time is when I put 300 on the bar just to break through that barrier. The second time was the first time I benched 315. The third time was when I benched 320 in competition. The other 2 times were this week and last week when I hit 300 and 305 without leg drive. By the end of this cycle I'll have benched 300+ with my feet off the ground more times than I've bench it with my feet on the ground.

    Not sure why, but my bench exploded these past few months. I think it's partially learning how to bench correctly and use my t-rex arms to their fullest potential. It's fun being able to take weights you used to get pinned by and crush them.

    315x1



    Was gonna go for 310, but I'm deloading next week so I decided to go for broke. Might have had a few more pounds in me, but called it there

    Competition Bench
    275x5
    2x5 @ 255
    255x3
    245x5



    Probably should have started a bit lighter. Was wiped after my no feet benching.

    Close Grip Bench
    2x7 @ 205
    205x6
    2x7 @ 185

    The rest of my pressing work was pretty much downhill after missing 2 reps on my 3rd set of competition bench

    BB Incline Chest Supported Row
    4x10 @ 225

    What do you think you're good for on competition bench? 335?

    I'd say around there give or take 5 pounds based on the velocities I've been hitting in training.

    I had no business going for a second set of 405, but I did anyway. Got all 3 reps, but I definitely cut the 3rd rep a bit high

    I wanted some redemption for cutting my last rep of the 2nd set high two weeks back. Made sure I sunk the 3rd rep of the second set this week.

    Thanks. I've been working on my consistency a lot since last meet. Every meet I've done I've ended up missing my 3rd squat attempt because I get nervous of getting called for depth, go too low, lose my tightness, and get set stuck on the way back up. So I want to make sure I'm confident knowing where my depth is.
