2015 Starting Strength Pro Raw Challenge – Braving the Storm and Funky Gravity

2015 Starting Strength Pro Raw Challenge – Braving the Storm and Funky Gravity

Mar 9, 2015

Ten weeks went by ridiculously fast and the next thing I knew I was at the Arnolds. A couple of things before we get to the actual meet. We had the traditional sacrifices to the strength gods.  Meaning I fed Cold Stone cupcakes to all the people I train with. I spent all of Wednesday watching the forecasts and hoping this was going to be one of the times when...

Before we get into the meet stuff, let’s catch up a bit from the last two weeks of training.

SSP Nutrition Raw Bench Challenge @ The Arnold

Ususally when I bench raw I tend to touch a big higher than my...

Pushing it to the Limit 12/30/14

Training has been going very well. I am satisfied with the progress I made so far but I think its time for a deload or week off next week. I am trying my hardest to push my body to the limit but avoid injury at the same time. I think I am at the point now where a week of very high reps next week will be huge chance for me to recover. So with that being said...

It wasn’t that bad, just didn’t want to lift on it after that. I was hoping for 570x 3 on squat a few days later but my back said ” Go F^&K...
