Doubles for Worlds

Doubles for Worlds

Sep 12, 2014

Well it is about time I got back to writing. I have been busy with birthdays, meet in San Antonio, college with one son, building a website, and getting ready for this upcoming meet. Anyways to the training.

This article compromises of all 3 lifts that are doubles before doing next week’s openers. However since I just did a bench meet 3 weeks ago I backed off on the bench. I am primed and am cautious about over training. Last year’s World 3 lift meet I remember laboring all 3 attempts (all good lifts) and don’t want to go through that again. I need all the successful attempts I can get considering I will be competing in Czech Republic.

After San Antonio meet my first squat and bench workouts were rough. I went completely raw on the bench and not doing much noteworthy nor did I care. The squat just felt heavy, probably from the extended break I took from before the meet. The crazy thing is my deadlift felt great the week after the meet and this workout I am posting it hit its best double for over 2 years. Yes I am excited. My deadlift was a best 584 at 198 and has plummeted due to a nerve issue. Last two workouts I have taken Naproxen Sodium, 800 mg, before lifting. I split the dose up during the day. I believe this alleviated the pinch and my back felt pain free. 2 workouts in a row with prs, within the last 2 years, is a cause for optimism.

Off to the workouts.
