GBPF Masters March 2014

Sorry for the lateness off blogging about the masters but now I have finally sorted the video from the lifting out and will get the blog updated now.
Firstly it was not a great outing and with weighing in very light (not even 73Kgs) I was not feeling my best on the day of the comp. The lifting was ok under the poor build up but I was surprised that my bench felt good on the day. Coming close to a 220Kg bench I was surprised considering I had jumped from 200 to 220 for my last attempt.
The breakdown of the lifts were Squat 285, Bench 200, Deadlift 237,5. Like I said not my best day by far but now things are better I am able to get focused towards the next event. Next up is going to be the World Masters Bench Press in England next month. I am going to get some videos sorted now in the next few weeks towards the Bench press. Here is the Video from the Comp

Some other good news is that NRG Fuel have renewed my contract with the company so that’s great for me. They really are a top company with some great products out there so check them out and for anyone interested the ones I am currently using are
Anabolic Whey, BCCA and Glutamine Mix . 100% Whey and ZMA to sleep. Now for you guys who have used ZMA talk about wild dreams, Mine are really crazy on times

Man Flu

I have been really slow of late doing the Blog updates, however here we go the last few weeks I was hit with some Man Flu virus and it has knocked me a bit in the last few weeks training. In the last heavy squats I did 210 for 3 sets of 3 in a belt and sleeves. Bench well my raw strength has taken a bit of a hammering and only managed 150 for a few sets of 3s the deadlift was going good though and I worked up to 210 for 4 sets of 3 with ease and that was done totally raw.
Now I have shaken this bug off I am going to sort of suck it and see how the last few weeks go towards the Masters, I may use some loose kit this week and see how it goes. My build up is a bit down now because off the illness but I have time to get some strength back before the comp. It has been good to get some raw training in and work on my base strength. On the weight side my bodyweight is also down and I am well under the class limit for a change.
Not long after the masters is the World Bench Press in England, this is something I have never done at an international level before so it will defiantly be different and a new experience for me.
