Road to 2013 CPU Nationals - 105kg Junior
I have a log over at t-nation, but it's seemingly dead over there at times. I just saw this site voted as one of the best (maybe the best? I forget) over at powerliftingwatch, so I thought I'd start logging here.
As the title states, I'm prepping for CPU (Canadian Powerlifting Union, an IPF affiliate) Nationals to be held in British Columbia. I'm a raw 105kg Junior, and just had a meet this past Saturday (January 12). Here's a quick write up:
Weighed in at 101.7kg
Everything was in fucking lbs in the warmup room, so
Smoked it, 2:1 pass
Smoked it again, 2:1 pass. Same judge, on depth again
Third: 230kg, National record attempt
National record, obliterated it. 2:1 pass again lol. Apparently one hip is higher than the other
Stoked, my first national record and a 10kg PB. Probably left about 10-15kg on the platform here.
Easy as fuck
Easy as fuck,2. 5kg PB
Also suuppper easy. 7.5kg PB, easily left 10-15kg on the platform again, very pleased with this
Warmups felt shitty as fuck, warmed up to like 405.
Not easy at all. Not even sure I should have gotten it, but 2:1 passed for a 2.5kg PB
Overall, a meet of firsts. My first 600kg total, first 500 lb squat, and first national record.
Saturday night I went into the gym for a bit of biking and foam rolling. Same thing on Sunday, but add a bit of light DB and leg restoration work.
Monday, January 14-
170kg x 5 x 5 sets
95kg x 3 x 6 sets
100kg x 3 x 2 sets
105kg x 3 x 5 sets
I'll post some meet videos as friends get them up.
First welcome to the site! I think you will enjoy it here.
Congrats on the resent meet, very good numbers, I had to get out my calculator though! You crazy people and your metric system! haha
How far out are you from your next meet?
Congrats on your success! Strong stuff! Welcome to MAB!!!:mh:
Thanks for the welcome and congrats. haha I'll try to post things in both kg and lbs. All our plates in the gym are kg's, but I mentally convert to lbs to know how heavy things actually are, if that makes sense. Left over from always training in lbs previously I guess.
I am about 9 weeks out. My day during Nationals (It's about a week long) is March 20.
Thanks! Looking forward to a more active community.
9 weeks is a quick turn around. Make sure you are doing lots of recover stuff. Looking fwd to seeing what your training looks like.
Normally (This makes it sound like I've done a ton of meets, I really haven't) I would never do another meet in 9 weeks. It's just the way it happened to go this time.
I will definitely be doing a ton of recovery stuff. Here's a general guideline:
I train Sheiko. I know Sheiko is a coach and not a program, but I think until I go through the numbered programs once more I'll refrain from programming myself. They've been working wonderfully.
I started Sheiko in May 2012 after going 200/115/220. In September I went 220/122.5/230 (the bench was a weird westside conjugate half sheiko hybrid mess).
For those familiar with the numbered programs, since 9 weeks is a weird number of weeks, I'll be doing the first two weeks of 37, all of 30, and the last three weeks of 32. 37 is somewhat more volume overall, 30 more intensity, and 32 is a peak or realization block. So, training therefore looks like this:
M-Sheiko Day 1
T-Active Recovery Work
W-Sheiko Day 2
Th-Active Recovery Work
F-Sheiko Day 3
Sat-Upper back Accessory
Sun-Off/Extra mobility work
The only deviation I do, currently (I just started this about a month ago), is dropping the squat down sets for front squat down sets. I recently switched from squatting in chucks and sitting back, to lifting in olympic shoes and squatting much more "russian" style. I REALLY need the quad work now.
Solid numbers. Welcome.
Welcome nice numbers. Can't wait to watch your log. I'm somewhat familiar with sheiko not the numbers of them, will be a fun read
