IrishHitman Gets BIG for March
 
March 1 will tentatively be my first meet here in Tuscaloosa and I will be running BIG (with a couple tweaks) in preparation for it. I've had really good success with it and see no reason to stray from it! I'll be adding more rows and back work so that I can get a little thicker and stronger and bring up my deadlift a little. I'm looking for a 1600 total (650 squat, 350 bench, 600 deadlift), but will really be happy with anything :) I might be trying to cut a bit of weight before then and may compete around 250. Here goes, y'all!

Week 1 Bench
 
Working sets: 225x8, 245x3x8
Close-grip Bench: 185x3x10, x8
DB skullcrushers (from floor): 25x10, 30x10, 25x10, 25x10
Hammer Strength Iso Row: 1PPSx10, 1PPS+1Qx10, 2PPSx12, 2PPS+1Qx10, x8

Replaced the Kaz presses with the rows. I'll be either replacing or adding on a couple sets of something to bring up my back to every workout.

Good stuff IH! If your going to cut down weight, think you'd want to get to 242 correct? 250 will just have you being light in the 275 class, not that it's a horrible thing ;)! Know you'll put up big numbers!

I'm actually just wanting to be a bit lighter just in general. I'm probably gonna be throwing in cardio a lot more in order to help with this. If things go well, I may continue on down to 245 and maybe less! Who knows!

Solid working sets.

11/26/2013 Back Wk 1
 
Had to change things a little as the power rack was taken up by guys squatting (which I will never interfere with!). Pulled from rubber 45s which put me in about the same starting position as low pin pulls.

Working sets (Versa-Gripps for all): 405x8, 415x8, 425x7, add belt: 455x5

Power Shrugs: 315x10, 365x2x10

BB Rows: 235x8, 195x2x8

Pretty good work today. I'm focusing on quality reps and not necessarily muscling up the weight on everything; squats, bench, pulls. If I feel form break, I'll lower the weight. I need to prevent injury and undue stress.

OHP
Working sets: 135x8, 155x2x8, 155x5, 135x6

Arnold Presses
45x8, 50x8, 55x8, 60x7

Decline situps w/ twist at top
10# medicine ball: 2 sets of 10 (After Thanksgiving, not the best idea. Haha)

DB Rows
70x10

Pretty good day and I was really just looking for a quick session to get the blood moving after mostly being inactive yesterday. Pretty solid day with improvements after last time I did this workout!
