Comments: Had a deep tissue massage the day before. I try to get these the week of the contest but scheduling wasn’t going to work this time. Felt good and got a lot of tension out of my upper back and neck. Right side (leg and hip) were really tight. Warmed up on the AMT. Heart rate only up to 148bpm. Calf raise work after that. Tight but felt good. I was expecting them to be not so good with how tight the calves felt. Box touches with both styles felt good as well. On to squat therapy. Sucked for my knees. But a lot better compared to the previous session this week. Hip airplanes were pretty good. No clicking with the right knee this time. I think the massage helped with that. Band rows and biceps stretch followed. Trying to get the biceps to relax. Rows I got to feel better than last session. Then on to the weights. Essentially the same setup as last cycle of training for box squats. Work up to 50% for five sets of three with two minutes rest. My squat was stronger so the weight went up this time. Knees were achy on the unracking of weights but felt good doing the actual squat. No support gear on these. Got my upper body tight (actively rather than passively) on the last two sets. Then on to log quarter squats. Same idea as last week, working up in big jumps to a top set with a hold on the last rep. 10lbs more over last week. This time, felt in between of the first and second week of these as far as feel. Knees didn’t feel so crappy but didn’t feel super-duper awesome. Trying to be consistent and methodical with these and get the first rep just right so that the other reps are crisp. Definitely feeling the weight on the top two sets. Upper abdominals on the right side were cramping up right before the second to last set. Didn’t lose my air like last week and feel pass-outty this time. Hard to stay stable and upright with this kind of weight. I pretty much stopped at 30 seconds as I didn’t want to have this be an all-out set and I was struggling to keep tight. Home to stretch and eat. One and done.
