Squat /Pull Day With video

333 Week for max reps was the order of the day. In my typical way of bastardizing Jimís 531 I did my usual light warm up with the singles and doubles and then only did the top set of the routine. This has worked well for me in the past so I stick with it. If itís not broken donít fix it!

Warm up

Rumble Roller Entire Back and hips

ELITEFTS roller: Its and Quads

Light stretching for quads and hams.

This was all I had time for warm up wise. I felt extremely tight but I was running late to the gym and had a little over an hour to train then get back home to help the wife out with things.


135 for 8 2 sets
225 for 3
300 for 3
405 for 1
515 for 8

This set wasnít my deepest set of the year but I was happy with the work put into it. I wish I was a hair deeper on a rep or two but over all that was a great set this early in the cycle.

Raw Sumo deadlifts

135 for 3
225 for 3
315 for 2
455 for 1
545 for 8

Another solid set this early in the cycle. Iím definitely a lot more comfortable with sumo this time then I was last cycle. I hope this is the beginning of PR in the making come December.

Block pull

655 for 1

Video of 655 for 1 Sumo off the blocks

I want to start hitting the blocks again. I did sumos followed by RDLs last cycle and want to make sure Iím not missing anything with the blocks. I will still do RDLS but will do them after blocks pulls. I wonít be doing a ton with these but I will start with moderate weight and add weight every other week that I pull on up to the meet.


Iím trying to get back into full stride. Iím not there yet but Iím closer then I was last week.
