Here we are the week before the world masters and TBH it has been a hard struggle but things are done and dusted, Training has been ok nothing special and what with the small back issue it has set me back a bit but hey ho and it will be rest and recovery towards the comp. The big plus sides are bodyweight is more or less spot on every morning and my upper body strength has come back and I feel that maybe that big bench needs to come on out to play.
We have done some videos from this week, we have had some new kit from Titan and I have been using it for the last few session, the working weights were, Squat 280Kgs, Bench 210Kgs and a 240Kg deadlift. All these weights I have done many times before but it is good to be on the road back. Although not feeling as strong as I have done I am looking forward to my first World masters Championships.
Here is a list off the lifters for you to see who is doing just what
Also on the you can click on the live link
I will be lifting on Friday in the afternoon and until then it is now rest and try to relax up to the event
Well on to the video you will see my lifts and some off the assistance I have done this week in the final prep towards the big day.
Here is the video guys
Sorry for the lack of blogging guys it has been a manic few weeks and along with a slight back injury it has been not the best few weeks.
A few weeks ago I had a niggle on my lower back and now it looks like it may have been something to do with the sciatic nerve, the good news is that it is now sorted but with some crucial time off I have had to mess my build up around and I have not been able to follow the program I have planned out..
Last week I managed to do some Squats and Deadlifts with some little pain but I did manage to get up to around 80% off my lifts. This week it does feel so much better and that’s a much better feeling with the World Masters a few weeks away. However I do feel confident off still lifting to a tidy standard. The ultimate goal will still be the same but I think it will just have to be put back a bit till I can get a good build up and back to full form. I know this all sounds like a bad excuse but I have never really had a bad injury with all the time I have been lifting. The worse one I have had was the bicep tear and for those of you who did not know that put me out for around 8 months. Being the only real injury I have had in 25 years’ worth of lifting you will understand mentally it is something I have not had to deal with.
Anyways onto some good news Titan have sorted out my new kit for the Worlds and I am as always appreciated to the guys over there for their help and support so here are the new colours for this year’s Worlds and let’s hope that they bring me luck
We will be getting some videos sorted out this week and posted I know there are a few on Facebook already, however I will be hoping to get a full length one with the weeks highlights.
Supplementation wise i am back loaded up with Anabolic Transporter and BCCA and Glutamine all from my Sponsors NRG Fuel.
