    heavy doubles! First set at 497 was smoooth. Second at 501.5 I lost my core tightness and let out the slack. Was a much harder slog. Please overall though.

    Monday, Oct 11 heavy squat day.
    went for 475 for a couple singles... weight actually felt like it moved real well and I was happy with it. Looking at the recording it looks like I didn't quite hit depth which was frustrating. Gotta work on sinking them all the way.

    Thursday, Oct 7 deadlift day

    OH HELL YEAH!!! goal was heavy singles today so I approached it like the deadlift part of meet day with warmups etc. Did my last 'warmup' at 440, then my 'first' single at 485. Felt real good, went to 512, which moved very fast, so went for a PR at 529 and got it! Feeling good for the meet in a few weeks.

    Monday, Oct 18 heavy squat day.
    Progressed to 485 yesterday - pretty excited to get the weight and I'm pretty sure my depth was good to. Tweaked feet to point out a little more with heels in a little more, forcing my knees out just a little bit. Feels good.

    Monday, Oct 26 heavy squat day. Last week of meet prep!
    Progressed to a new PR yesterday - depth felt good! Keeping the slight stance tweak to point my toes out more and force the knees a bit wider. Focusing on sitting down instead of back. Balance feels better and I think my quads are activating better. I will certainly be very happy if I can hit all these lifts in the comp in less than two weeks.

    Monday, Nov 1 MEET PREP DAY!
    Last workout before heading to IPL tested worlds. I just warmed up and did my openers, which went plenty smooth.
    Doing my best to keep all my lessons learned from the last meet and perform as well as I can this time around. Excited and looking forward to it!
    Openers felt really easy, which is exciting because my opener total is almost identical to my meet PRs from Feb.

    split squats:4x6
    SSB (actually, just backdown regular squats): 3x4 @ 264

    Tuesday, Nov 23 bench day.
    Lots of volume and tempo bench which my coach loves. I think I went a bit heavy on my early working sets and had to drop some weight on each, but at least I did push myself!

    Tempo bench: 4x4 @ 253
    Bench hold: 380; unrack and hold for 5 sec x 2
    Wide grip bench: 3x8 @ 205
    DB OHP single hands: 2x10 @ 30
    Tricep press downs: 3x20 black band
    Bicep BB curls: 2x20 @ 45
