Stronger. And More Powerful.
I've been using Jim Wendler's 531 template since last August/September, with good results. However, I am going to make some changes to my training, basically going heavier than the program recommends. I am doing this in preparation for a PL meet on June 27. It will be my first.
I have been lifting seriously, pushing myself, for about a year. Before that, I lifted weights, played lots of basketball, ran, rode my bike, but it was, more or less, simply to keep my weight down. It was when I noticed that I was struggling to stay lean that I started pushing myself in the weight room, and soon became interested in powerlifting.
This is not the first time I've followed powerlifting. At 19 (currently 33), I was doing a PL program and had the intention to compete, but hitched a big deadlift, wrecked my back, and soon stopped training.
Yesterday, April 14, was the beginning of a deload for me. However, this Saturday, at my gym, there is a bench press competition that I plan on participating in. That will make the deload tolerable. My attempts will go like this:
My best gym lift was 325x1, so I thought I would set myself up with 315 to hit the 5lb PR.
That passed the time, I was time, I devoured the world. Not now, any more. A man changes. As he gets on.--Samuel Beckett
