Squat - 4100lbs

Squat: 245x1; 225x2x3; 185x5; 165x3; 135x10 the sets under 225 were high bar

Leg ext 5x12
GHR 3x12
Standing calves 3x12

30 min post workout and I’m already sore

First time squatting in almost two weeks. I’ve been under eating because of exams and interviews. I’ll be back at 275 in a couple weeks once I have more food and volume in me.

Total volume 4,365 if I added everything correctly. A little over; but that’s ok.

What I intended to post but my phone didn’t let me…

In the first episode of the 2014 Canadian Universal Nutrition Road Trip, our favourite Animal and Universal nutrition bodybuilders stop at my home base, Torque Barbell Club. Wish I could have been there for filming; but I was competing that weekend at the Toronto Pro SuperShow.

Check out my boys Brett Sanders and Dan Petkovsek (my first powerlifting coach ever) pulling some weight!

Big ups to deadliftdamsel who smoked a 600lb squat this weekend at the Westside Pro meet! Such a huge accomplishment at the age of 21! Congratulations, Anna!

My club hosted it’s very first powerlifting meet. It was speedy, efficient, informal and a whole lot of fun! I even jumped in at the end and deadlifted. After 3 warm up sets I Opened with 255, went to 275 and finished with 320 conventional. Not too shabby for not having eaten much / being busy running the scoring table / already deadlifted heavy this week.

And I don’t feel destroyed so that indicates gains.

That pre-Deadlift pic is awesome. Just power and concentration. None of that breathy models humping a dumbbell nonsense.

Haha, “breathy models humping a dumbbell.” My training is 100% Raw un-sexiness. *farts*

Training to be a better athlete and training for a better career at the same time is the most intense venture I’ve taken on to date. Very crazy-making.

Pick two

Study / interview / job Search / work

I ate probably 1000 calories yesterday and like 30g of protein.

DL 1625lbs

DL 275, 280, 225x2x3 
Fronties 3x3 @ 155lbs

Cut it short. My body felt frazzled from this week’s stress. I don’t need to be snapping my shit up so I hit my main lifts and got out. Not the happiest with my form execution today but at least I showed up.

Ugh. Now that I’ve got this strategic human resources planning research paper out of the way, I can finally start reading and researching about things that really matter- like anabolic signaling.
