Ok so I have decided to push out and do the meet on January 29th In Minnesota (UPA).
There are a few reasons for this.
Financially with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up and my wife closing her business, it doesn't work right now. That's the number 1 reason. My training has gone good enough to show up and total something like 1650. Which is still shit, but it's not complete shit.
I have probably over done it a little bit. As I have written about many times, I do better squatting and pulling in the same workout, once a week. I thought coming off my injury that I would benefit by pulling on a separate day, but as my lifts climbed back up, I didn't do the smart thing by reducing training volume or frequency.
I will deload this week and then go back to my two days a week plan with 2-3 days of conditioning. I also think having another 9 weeks to train will put me over the 1700 mark. I think that 650-450-650 is very doable with another 2 months of training.
My plan is very simple - get stronger. I will train twice a week. Squat one week and pull the other. I will bench one week and incline the next. Followed up by some rows or chins and some light shoulder/arm work.
That's it. I am going to take off between now and next Tuesday more than likely to foam roll, heal up, and mentally get ready again.
