Press Wednesday: Promising Numbers

VERY HAPPY with tonight’s training. Also glad that the tendinitis was minor and, when it did surface, it was in the final set of inclines… and it didn’t prevent me from hitting a new personal best there, either. This constant calorie saturation is paying dividends, and as I’m doing heavy singles instead of volume work it isn’t knocking my CNS around at all. So I’m going to do one last week of this before starting my program for CAPO states.

Realistically, I should be able to hit a 172.5 kilo bench next week, along with either a 330 or possibly 340 deadlift. I am still having trouble accepting that I am nearly at 350 – it’s like a 6 year dream about to be realised – and I’m excited as hell to give it a final go on Thursday. Squats… well, they are what they are. If everything holds together long enough, I will attempt 250 on Monday. But I won’t sacrifice the rest of the training week to get it: if it’s not feeling good, it’s not happening.

Ultimately, I’d like to go 250/175/3-and-something-fucking-big. Maybe even more on bench, if I can get it on the day.
