Ok thanks guys, so the strategy is new belt and more food. To hell with the weight classes, I'll just hit the sauna before the meet.

Max effort lower:

Raw squat down to pins (at parallel):
135 x 5
225 x 3
275 x 2
315 x 2
335 x 1 (PR)
335 + 60 pds chains x 1 (PR)
225 + 60 pds chains x 7 (drop set)

Squat lockouts: (heavier sets are paused 10 sec at the top)
225 x 5
315 x 5
405 x 3
495 x 2

GHRs:
10 x 3 sets

Calve raises, 3 sets.

More food usually equals PRs for me. You just keep rolling out the PRs.

Thinking about competing again soon? Don't think I asked you that recently...

Thanks guys. Been a rough week. My 7 year-old daughter got admitted to the hospital with a serious infection and nearly lost her left arm. My wife and I have been spending days and nights by her side. This is the first time I get a chance to do a workout in quite a while.

The next meet is in July - we'll see how things go.

Dynamic bench:
135 x 8
185 x 3 x 3 sets (2 boards)
205 x 3 x 3 sets (2 boards)
225 x 3 x 2 sets (2 boards)
135 x 20

Sitting DB shoulder press:
50 x 12 x 3 sets superset lateral raises 25 x 8

Rotator cuff rotations.

Hope she's doing good. Didn't know you had a daughter that age. Can I ask how she picked up the infection?

it's a strep A infection. likely got it from a bad fall at school where she sprained her wrist. Her arm got badly swollen and she ran a fever of 106. Things are better now, but damn, we all got scared.

With everything that happened this year, I don't know if I can get my head in the game for doing a meet this summer. I would rather not decide right now, and see how the training is going. I finished teaching my last class today, so if nothing bad happens, I should resume a 4-day/week workout schedule.

I understand about the meet. Live is more important. I have an 8 year old daughter and I can't imagine going through that.
