USPA Powerlifting Meet Prep – 5 weeks out


hey guys welcome back to my channel
remember if you like it subscribe give me a thumbs up and tell your friends its Brie OCD time baby day one of peaking and I flopped not quite
squats I did really really good she had me hitting 205 for three I’ve
never done that before this is low bar but I’ve never even hit 205 for three
before because my one rep is 215 remember this folks so I hit that Depth
was good I’ve been trying to shorten shorten it a little bit because I go way
too low so I’m wasting extra energy so the goal is just to break parallel I
backed off I did three sets of five at 175 and those felt pretty good
especially because my front hip is a little cranky I’m going for a massage
after this and then the flop was bench I had ten minutes I only had ten minutes
to get up to 120 for two and dude this ish felt heavy like heavy so I only did 120 for
one and I’m like no way I can’t do another one there’s no freaking way and
then I was supposed to back down to 110 by 4 no freakin way I couldn’t I
couldn’t do it I think I did two and so then she had me back down 95 for 4 and I
did a few sets at that and that I could do but even that felt heavy so I can’t
be discouraged because it’s kind of comical how heavy all this stuff felt so
day 1 in the books I’m going for a massage after this I’m going for an hour
cuz I need my back my hip my neck and my back I need the whole body so day one
in the books let’s goooohooo day two of peeking in the books it was
all upper body today and after I flopped on bench yesterday I was a little
nervous but team three of day no drinking and I did spoto press i don’t know if thats how you say it s-p-o-t-o which is where you stop one to two
inches off of your chest which is hard to do when you used to putting it all
the way to your chest and pausing for 15 seconds no not 15 2 to 3 but I did spoto press and surprisingly it was flying 105 was flying so I did that for 4 sets
of 5 then I went down two feet up paused you know regular old feet up paused
bench and I did that for four sets of seven at 85 and then the last said I
went down to 75 because it was supposed to be you know RPE 7 and it was not
getting to be an RPE7 so I switched that up then I went over to these Easy
Bar reverse curls idea couldn’t use the EZ bar because the EZ bar is like 45
pounds of 35 pounds I don’t know way too heavy for me so I did 25 pounds with the
EZ bar for 3 sets of 12 on all good day confidence back up again and I’m ready
to crush this week let’s gohooo so I stepped on the scale this morning I
was 107.5 what was ever gonna have I don’t know what’s up with this
scale you saw me go last week i validated it it was on point and I’m
going the wrong way I felt heavy before you stepped on the
scale I don’t look at me I don’t look a lb and a half heavier I don’t know what’s
going on so I’m going the wrong way we are five weeks out four and a half weeks out by this point and I need to get my act together people so stay tuned for
all the food for this week I’m eating a bunch of leftovers from last week still
I don’t know why we didn’t go through the food but I also making buffalo chicken
stuffed sweet potatoes which are my favorite I eat my yogurt parfait every
morning every single morning I made avocados
egg burgers with sweet potato fries in the airfryer five weeks out weight AHHHH
but we’ll get back on it day three in the books it is only 6:30 in the morning and I’m
already done I woke up at 350 this morning I set my alarm because I’m
presenting at plobra today for my notary business and I had to get up that early
to get my ish done so for everybody this is they don’t have time you do have time
it’s just not a priority and that’s fine other things take priority but you can’t
say you don’t have time to work I’ll get healthy or get fit because you do you’re
just placing other things above that like sleep like your children like
errands any other thing that life happens but if you want to do it you
will do it so like do you think I want to get up at 350 in the morning no I
don’t but it’s a priority for me so I do it I did all the things today I squatted
I did 1×4 pause squats at 155 my left hip feels there’s like like a cramp in
the front of it and I’ve been working on it I went for a massage went to the
chiropractor I’ve been putting the lidocaine patches on it but when I do squat
I can feel it again so I gotta be careful with that
and then I went down at four by four at 1:40 so I did pause squats at that
weight then I went over to bench and it was weight by two so eight sets of two
reps and I did a couple sets at 105 and I realized this isn’t really RPE8 I
mean I could have but I am supposed to bench heavy on Saturday so I want to
save myself so I did that and then I went down to 100 for the next six sets
and with a pause of three seconds at the bottom it’s like eating lunch down there
then I went over to deadlifts and I did twelve by one so just one rep at 185 I’m
thankful because of my hip I just want to you know not be going all heavy
especially at 24 hour where I don’t have chalk yada yada same old story but I
twelve by one at that and then some accessory work hammer curls love working
on my biceps get jacked 3×10 ab rollouts ive been doing ab rollouts a good amount now that my abs abs in quotation marks stomach does not even
get sore really so all in all a good day gotta go crush this notary presentation
to make that money day 3 in the box let’s go whoo day four in the books yeah whoo I
squatted I was in my head today I don’t know why I think cuz that little quad
thing that’s going on I was in my head but I squatted 210 by 2
it’s the shakiest look you know I got my chicken wing on shakiest I’ve been up
as of recently but I did it I tried I thought to shorten my depth
but I didn’t then I went down to 185 4×4 which fell okay the little heavy felt
heavy for what it was and then I went over the bench and again I was
scared cuz I failed the 120 by 2 on Monday again cuz I didn’t have enough
time but I did it 120 by 2 im not sure if my little buns came up I had a bad angle so
I don’t know if some of my peaches were still on the bench so I definitely work
on that and make sure I push backwards and not up and then I back down to 110
4×4 open gym was awesome today there was just a small little crew we had little
jenn and Gina for a little bit we had Sheraacchhaa
we had small fry both of them were PR’ing there back squats I mean it was
just off the chain so much fun so nice little Saturday it’s raining out I gotta
go do a notary signing later this afternoon and then back at it baby
hopefully I get a little downtime today that’s it gotta get er done happy
Saturday peace five weeks out in the books I am
technically less than a month away for my meet this week was all about recovery
I had you know that little quad issue that’s still not a hundred percent but
it’s getting so much better I went to the chiropractor as I go every week I
went for massage I put the lidocaine patches on at night
links to that is down in the description below on my recovery tools I’ve been
heating it with the rice sock and I just make my own heating pad cheap easy and
it lasts forever I’ll put a card up at the top for that blog on how you do that
and now put a link below as well acupuncture I went for and I’m feeling a
hell of a lot better and especially after squat yesterday so today was just
upper body I did bench I did a hundred and forty five pound hold for 15 seconds
at first it was fine then it felt super super heavy I don’t know how I ever
benched 138 and to me I have no idea 145 was heavy then I went down and I was
so do five by five at rp8 for bench and I thought I had a hundred pounds on the
bar and I really had 110 cuz I don’t know how to count because the red bar
and the blue bar are 10 pounds off and I’ll go yanked up but I did 110 5×5 then
I went down to a hundred where I wanted to be hancy was working out with me
because it’s Sunday and all at all just a good day this week was a lot of
recovery I need to start stretching more I’ve been foam rolling every single
night while I watch TV and trying to do yoga in the morning again all my
recovery tools will be in the description below less than a month out
