Rant and Tip for July 25, 2011

Today I will send in my registration form for the USAPL Bench Press Nationals. I am so looking forward to this event. The USAPL streamed live their Full Power National meet which was an event where the lifters are allowed to where equipment which can assist the lifter push even greater amounts of weight. The USAPL is also having their Raw Nationals in the month of August. This event I did not get to qualify for. I do hope to do that event next year in Killeen TX. I have to start planning now so I can qualify. Anyway if I find they are going to stream the event live I will put the link here. I will be lifting on Saturday September 3rd, sometime around noontime. My flight will be booked today as well. The only factor that is up in the air that I will have to decide also depends on the flight. I want to get there early enough on Friday, to possibly weigh in on their scales. Just to make sure I am set the 163-pound weight class. I am 167.6 right now and hope to hit 165 by Friday. Then maintain that through mid August.

Workout today will consist of benching and trying to hit my personal best numbers with a pause. I really want to go in knowing what I am going to hit. I really want 315 with a pause. I plan on doing doubles for the next to weeks. Hitting it on Monday and Wednesday. I will have to work hard and smart. The week before the event I will not lift but may do cardio just to keep the weight where it needs to be.

Well off to work my friends and then to my workout at noon and back to work. Keep cool everyone!

Have a great workout!


Exercise can and is a great stress reliever. If you are looking for that little bit of motivation to get you going for the day look no further. As you exercise you will find you relieve the stress that you encounter through out your day. Your body will release endorphins. Keep in mind the harder you work-it the better the benefit of exercise.

So go relieve some stress today.
