Arnold Strongman Prep Deadlift PR w/VIDEO

I am currently training for The 2014 Arnold Amateur Strongman Fitness World Championships. This will be held at The Arnold Sports Festival Feb. 28th through March 2nd in Columbus, Ohio. I’ll be competing in the Lightweight 185# division.


Going into training today I wasn't feeling it. I didn't sleep well last night and was up early to work. After some caffeine and my first few warm up sets things started to feel better. I ended up hitting an all time Rep PR on deadlifts at 16 pounds lighter than I was when I pulled my previous 5RM.

I weighed in at 203 this morning which is actually up a pound. But comparing photos from last week I can see I'm still getting leaner. I expect to be 201-202 on Friday as that's typically my lightest day of the week.

I'm definitely looking leaner than last weeks pic. I'm looking a little depleted as well.


We are expecting a big ice/snow storm here over night Thursday into Friday. So I went to the market again today to stock up on beef and chicken. I plan to go ahead and pre-cook my meals for quite a few days just incase it gets bad. We had an ice storm in '09 and I had no power for over 20 days. I'm hoping this isn't as bad, but preparing the best I can. I'll still get my training in though. In '09 I was squatting in a gym with no power and it was 17 degrees.
