Worlds Report

Well today went both good an bad.

Opened with 250kg on the squat an was a pretty good rep, was happy with it and played my attempts from here a little as planned, only slightly off to target placings etc. Went to 260kg for the second. It felt better than the first, the set up was spot on an form felt good. Jumped to what I thought was pretty conservative to 267.5kg for the final squat to go for a medal (would have been silver). Really don't know what happened on this final attempt,

HJP Worlds Prep - Saturday 1st June & Monday 3rd June...

by hjpritch on 06-02-2013 at 10:13 PM
Had for some reason been unable to log but its working again now, here is the two most recent sessions...


Not a bad day today. Felt pretty decent given the fact I'd trained yesterday. Have been overestimating myself a bit too much this week though an did it again on the deadlifts. Not accounting for the accumulated fatigue when I think what I should be able to hit. Will focus hard on hitting the target RPE next week.
