Default Road to 2013 CPU Nationals - 105kg Junior

Hey folks,

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:

105kg Junior
Weighed in at 101.7kg

Squats
Warmups:
Everything was in fucking lbs in the warmup room, so
135
185
225
275
315
365
405
Opener: 200kg
Smoked it, 2:1 pass
Second 215kg
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.

Bench
Warmups:
95
115
135
155
185
205
225
235
Opener: 115kg
Easy as fuck
Second: 125kg
Easy as fuck,2. 5kg PB
Third: 130kg
Also suuppper easy. 7.5kg PB, easily left 10-15kg on the platform again, very pleased with this
Deads:
Warmups felt shitty as fuck, warmed up to like 405.
Opener
200kg
Easy
220kg
Easy
240kg
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-

Squat
170kg x 5 x 5 sets

Front squat
95kg x 3 x 6 sets

Bench
100kg x 3 x 2 sets
105kg x 3 x 5 sets

I'll post some meet videos as friends get them up.
