Incline Bench Press
Fat Gripz Rows
As of next week, I'll be training Tue/Wed/Fri/Sat, on account of uni taking up all my time on Mon. I spoke to Nick about this today, and asked for his opinions regarding which days I should do each lift on. I've been concerned about pull ups and rows interfering with deadlifts the following day, so I've been considering changing the days to DL/BP/SQ/IBP, as oppose to the current schedule of BP/DL/IBP/SQ. Nick feels that deadlifts the day before would cause more hassles for bench the day after, than pull ups and rows the day before would cause hassles for deadlift the day after, so he recommends that I keep to the same schedule, just moving BP to Tue. I'll let him be the coach, and go with his recommendation, and see how things play out.
I'm also experimenting with a water cut right now. This shouldn't have much (if any) impact on actual body composition, but it will let me know how my body responds to it. Much better that I trial this now and have things go badly next week than that I use competition as my first trial of this and have a bad meet because of it. I'd rather weigh in heavier and perform well than to weigh in lighter and perform poorly, which is one major thing to consider when doing a water cut. Another factor to consider is that I may not lose as much water weight as predicted, and consequently it may be a lot of trouble for not a lot of reward.
