Bodybuilder Friday

Friday was my last day in the gym before the meet.  I just wanted to get some blood moving around and do some stretching, but nearly died instead...

Wide grip lat pulldowns: 5 sets of 10
Incline DB Press: 4 sets of 15
One arm overhead press: 2 sets of 20 each arm
Front Raise: 2 sets of 20
Side Raise: 2 sets of 20
Lying plate ext: 3 or 4 sets of 20
External Rotator work: 3 sets of 15 each arm
Green band standing crunch: 2.5 sets of 10.  I got 2 sets in and about 5 reps into my third set when POW, I am on the ground.  The band had made a clean break while I was in the very bottom of the crunch sending me to the floor.  Luckily I was able to break my fall with an elbow instead of my face....

Everything is starting to heal up a bit and I am stating to feel antsy without training for a few days (which will get worse as the week goes).  My openers for the meet are around these numbers.  I say "around" because I think they are using Kilo's so who knows what the actual number will be.
Squat: 950ish
Bench: 715ish
Dead: 650ish

The plan is to hit these conservative openers and go from there.  I am looking forward to a good meet and week end with PR's for myself, Barry, and the Dez.
