    Head is a bit messed up today for some reason, torn in 2 directions:
    -Time to hammer it because there are only 2 training weeks left
    -Time to ease up because there are only 2 training weeks left
    Lol
    I know the answer though. Time to ease up. My body hurts and it's telling me so. I need rest, especially since I am "dieting".

    Going to write up my last few weeks of training and figure out what days to put what lifts and start tapering down to the meet.

    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?
    Well I have 9 days to go...

    Lifting light is a mind fuck, like I feel unproductive not going balls to the wall, but I guess it'll pay off.

    Glute feels solid...gunna do some pump shit today...

    And keep everything down for the next 9 days. Maybe openers 5-7 days out and then take off until the meet.

    How heavy will you go these last 2 weeks?

    Have to write some stuff up to keep myself on track but i will do some pretty heavy sq and dl next week (maybe all out doubles triples or even singles, depends on how I feel) and then the following week i will only work up to a single at 90% (which would be my openers). I will also be squatting and deadlifting on the same day so that my pc has more time to rest and heal. My bench opener will most likely be on Monday or Tuesday the week prior to my meet.

    Joe - you open at 90% ?! That's pretty gutsy man.

    lol, 90% is kinda standard over here. What do you open with?
    Typically 90% is a weight that you could hit for a triple.
    My deadlift will actually be slightly lower since it's at the end of the meet I figure i will open that one just a touch easier.

    unless something goes very wrong, this is what I am thinking (In kilos):
    sq - 217.5
    b - 157.5
    dl - 265.0

    Yea dude. Will do.

    Hit my bench and squat openers with ease today. 340 and 405.

    Glute is still feeling funky so I'll be rolling it out with a PVC pipe and then resting it up all week. Icing too.

    Was very happy with the squat though. Felt like warm up weight.

    See if you can get some voltarin. It's a strong anti inflamm and will help it heal quicker.

    You either get it with a script from a doc or you find it online. I get a bunch every time I go overseas b/c I don't need a script when I'm overseas.

    You could also get some screaming toast. It's an ointment that causes localized inflammation which rushes blood to the area making it more mobile. It also makes the area VERY hot b/c of the ingredients. Most lifters I know use it and it helps a great deal.

    Feel like I am getting there, got a tough 253 squat and a very easy 220 paused bench over the weekend.

    good work Jim.

    I have to bench tomorrow and I am thinking about working up through some doubles til I fail...
    From that point on, I have my numbers planned out up to the meet.
