    SUNDAY - Competition Preparation - Deload

    Deadlift: 250x4 x4 sets
    Squat: 165x4 x4 sets
    Bench Press: 120x4 x4 sets (with pause at bottom)

    Bodyweight Assistance Work (1-2 reps shy of failure)
    Pull-Ups, 15, 10, 8

    Push-Ups Tabata, 10, 10, 10
    Ab Work

    I’m feeling pretty ready. I would fell totally ready if this pesky finger injury would just heal up. It sort of affects my grip on deads, but no excuses. I just have to pull heavy *kitten* weight three times.

    6 days until meet (March 15 - Flat Rock, MI)

    Bodyweight: 122.4 … I’m glad that I’m at my competition weight. That means I can eat normally, with an emphasis on protein. And with just the water drop the day before, I anticipate my weigh-in will be somewhere around 120 pounds.


    If anyone is interested, here are some micro-tasks related to preparing for the meet that I do as well. It probably doesn’t/won’t have any impact on anything, just a preference thing really.

    Last Friday: Stopped Taking Creatine - this should help me drop a bit of water weight. I’ll start taking it again after weigh-in on Friday.

    Sunday: Deload Day

    Monday: Increase water consumption by about 25%, add BCAAs (10-15g); Massage/Mobility/Stretching appointment (60 minutes)

    Tuesday: Increase water consumption another 25%, add BCAAs (15-20g)

    Wednesday: Increase water consumption another 25%, add BCAAs (20-25g)

    Thursday: Cut off water consumption at 1:00pm (3-4 ozs with dinner in evening), limit sodium intake during this time as well

    Friday: Weigh-In at 10pm; Water back in, big *kitten* breakfast, big *kitten* lunch, big *kitten* dinner

    Saturday: Decent Breakfast, Meet, Beer-fueled big *kitten* dinner after the Meet

    In all honesty, it’s not the type of thing that I would tell other people to do, but it worked well for me last time, so I figure I would do it again
