  • USPA Worlds

    After talking with the wife, it seems that I will compete in the USPA WORLD's held this November in Las Vegas.

    My last meet (USPA NATIONALS) I hit a 1,234 total (165 lbs.). I am hoping to hit 1,300 at worlds in November. Doing so means lifts as follows:

    Squat:460
    Bench:320
    Dead:520

    This means a lot of hard work and getting out of my comfort zone. But let's do it.

    I am sitting at about a fat 172 right now.

    Here is a pic from tonight.

          Thanks V1 and Heckman.

          Nexa, I am so heavy now that I may have a slight case of sleep apnea. My wife says I stop breathing and that she panics waiting for me to take in air. I told her to let go of my neck. Lol

          Okay here is the plan. 18 weeks till World's. I will run Wendler's 5/3/1 for 6 weeks starting Monday. The last 12 weeks will be the BJ Whitehead routine from Josh Bryant's Metroflex Power-building E-book.

            When you say get out of your comfort zone, are you referring to putting on a lot of weight or just being so beat up from the training? (or anything else you don't mind sharing...mental aspects,etc)

              All of the above actually. I thought I always wanted to be 180 or close to. But, I notice once I get above 170 I have trouble breathing when laying down. I get tired quickly and sweat like a pig. Remember, I am only 5'-3".

              The heavy weights are physically exhausting and I am sore all the time.

              Mentally, getting under heavy weight is sometimes difficult. I wonder to myself, "am I going to be able to come out of the hole on this sqaut. And if not, how am I going to dump the weight safely." My goal weights for the last meet are going to be working set weights on this routines when I get to heavy singles. So I need to get past the I hope I can, and get to I KNOW I can.

                  During training? I received a red light on my first 2 squats at nationals. And I was way below parallel.

                    I really appreciate that you posted so honestly. It makes me feel normal and encouraged to get out of my comfort zone too. You've got my vote.

                          Alright, this week was used for setting my 1 RM's to start 5/3/1 on Monday.

                          Squat- 430 Hit this on Tuesday
                          Bench- 295 Hit this on Monday
                          Dead- 495- Hit this Today
                          OHP- I am going to do volume shoulder work. For some reason OHP's are hard on my back. Probably bad form. But to be honest, I just don't like 'em. To me they are like the cousin that comes to visit and wants to stay at your place. It's hard to say no for the first couple of times, but then you just say, "Get a Hotel! I don't like you!".

                            Damn. I felt the same way being on the upper end of 150. Maybe it *is* time to cut down on the nighttime leftover splurge, eh?



                            Yeah the squat judging was kind of crappy, to say the least.

                              By far the most inconsistent judging I have ever seen. It differed from one lifter to the next, from one platform compared to the other, and one judge to the next. Had judges making calls that they couldn't even explain the rule as to why it was red lighted, then on the next lift say it was perfect even though it was identical to the last lift.

                              I really like Steve Dennison, but he needs to do a major overhaul with finding quality judges for big meets like this.
