    Well I'm 8wks out now, strength is on the increase and it's this next month that I need to dig in and up the game.

    Tomorrow will be a big session, training with the PL'ing crew at Eastside. Hoping to try for a 400 DL which will be my first time since February. We're also hitting bench so I'll be looking for at least a solid 220. Keen to better my meet PB of 232 this time around, I think I can.

    Yeah Jim, training with Paul was a nice change of pace for sure!

    Do you tend to get in more volume when you are further out from the meet? I know I do. Then I cut back a bit as it gets closer.

    Yeah I do, although thinking about it I don't know if that's a conscious thing... just seems to happen that way for some reason lol.

    Here's where I'm at now at 8 weeks out. Pre-WO nutrition (my infamous oats), deficit DL's and then my final set of max deadlifts from last night with big jim from this forum...

    ok so today was great for me.
    I killed a 500 triple on squats tonight and was only going for 2. But when I did 315 warming up I just knew it would be a good day.

    and where the F is Austin??

    Paid for the meet today!

    Paused 385 on bench...that was big...missed 415...nothing heavy from here on out.

    Scared about squats and deads because my glute is pulled...

    Well 385 x 2 squat felt like I could have done 8-10 reps....so Im not worried...getting a PVC pipe and rolling this shit everyday.

    Will get vidz, dont know how many people will turn up. my fam lives far away but my one friend is coming to spot, guess I could ask someone in the crowd.\

    Lets get more in depth....

    What should I eat the day prior, heard lots of high sodium foods?

    Should I stick to shakes or whole foods day of, I remember you guys said nothing that makes you full and bloated.

    Easy 335 x 2 cgbp today

    not doing a ton of sets though....

    Need some help...my glute hurts after deads.

    Worked up to an easy 545 which I might open with if not more.

    However, glute feels like shit...

    I got 11 days out....was thinking not doing dead until meet day.

    Opinions?

    NO MORE DEADS!
    Eat what works for you. I used to try and do weird shit but anything out of the ordinary just seems to screw with me. I do love some sodium so if there are higher sodium things you like go for it. DRINK plenty the day before and day of!

    Impressive Joe, loved your face at the end when you turned to face the camera. Strong stuff.

    Your training is all on track?

    seems to be on track I think.
    I am VERY sore today from my squats on Tuesday though.
    I will NOT deadlift this friday, and honestly I think I will skip squats next Tuesday and do both moves on Friday Oct 26th. Probably a pretty brutal day. Then the following Friday Nov 2nd i will just do my SQ and DL openers.

    Hows your training going?

    Austin, you ready?
