i never did the mock meet with my buddy because of the snow here in MD that day, and then i went on vacation and got fatter!
on my lunch break tonight i will be doing a half hour of cardio and some stretching. so hopefully i can stick to that as well.

the 315 was pretty easy. so now the initial 2 weeks of my prep is done. the next 4 weeks will be a little more intense. i have been doing a lot more reps in the warm up than i have in the past. but i am going to start cutting it down a bit and focus more on my main working set. i actually lost weight! i am down to 225. 5 more and i can make the weight class i don't want to be in. well one weight class at a time i suppose Undecided

CG bench

man what a shitty bench day. the guy spotting me on my last set could not keep his hands off of the bar so it was ruining my bar path, then he tried to rack it after one. also i have been taking in less calories, and i am really feeling it this week. i will finish up with some tris in the morning. also i have missed my DE day 2 weeks in a row and i am thinking that is having it effect on my benching.

squat - dead lift, yesterday

squat
worked up to 375 for 1

dead lift
worked up to 405x2


this week has been rough as far as getting in the gym so i did squat and dead lift in 1 day on the 95% wave week so it was a bit taxing. i got into bullshitting with someone about training for my last set and i lost all motivation for the dead lift. i did some interval training or at toyed around with it. some squat pushes and pull ups etc.
on a side note i weighed the weights after my dead lift plus the 5 extra for the bar it was just shy of 430! i just go by 405 because that is what it should weigh.
