Brief description of my 2014 XPC training cycle:

I wanted to put out a brief description of the program I am putting together for the XPC Finals in March 2014. I haven’t finalized anything, and this is without detail. I guess it’s just a chance for me to put up the idea and get some feedback.

I have had a good time training raw over the last few months. I took that into consideration when I was thinking about gearing up for the meet. I want to keep some moderate raw weight in my program, so what I have come up with will be a basic 3 week wave.

Week 1: Raw
Week 2: Medium Gear
Week 3: Full Gear

I’ll do this for all three lifts, but stagger the lifts so I’m not going all out on the same week for all three lifts. I think that is best for my joint health.

I am planning on a four month training cycle. That will give me only 6 times in my squat suit. That may change if the first time or two really suck. Same for all the gear. I need to make sure I still feel right in it and will be able to hit the platform and perform properly with so few geared sessions. But if it works I think this will allow my back to readjust to the heavy weight without overtaxing it and setting myself up for further injury.

So what do you think? Let me know.

Pushing forward.,
Adam Driggers
