A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Monday, March 17, 2014


I was concerned about training today as I was sick as a dog yesterday. Nauseated, diarrhea, sore aching joints. I took some meds before bed and after a good night sleep I was ready for battle.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 315lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/2 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with belt and knee sleeves) - 455lbs/1 rep, 466lbs/1 rep, 466lbs/1 rep.

Pump Phase
Squats (with belt and medium bands) - 3 sets/4, 4, 5 reps/315lbs to 405lbs.

Support Work
Lying Leg Curls - 3 sets/12, 8, 8 reps/90, 97.5, 105lbs.
Seated Leg Extensions - 3 sets/12 reps/120, 140, 160lbs.

This is the last heavy day of training before Nationals. I wanted to push myself but with control. I am ready for battle. New personal records will be mine.
