Breck Gault, beast from Washington

Hey guys, been some time since posting, still lifting heavy. Nothing big to report. Been really busy with my internship at school. Its an acute care setting in a hospital. Exciting and challenging. 4 weeks in and 2 more to go. I'll try and recap the past week of training.


Dynamic Warmup + Shoulder prehab

Log clean and press each rep.
90 x 5
140 x 5
190 x 5
220 x 6 - right around 1 minute. PR. Felt I could do more with more time but boy is this exhausting.

Viper press, start each rep from the floor.
140 x 5
180 x 10 in 1:30 seconds. Man thats good conditioning.

Incline Bench (maxed around 220 x 7?)

Ring pushups 5 x 6-8 @ 25lbs


Dynamic warmup + hip/core prehab

180lbs x 50'
270 x 50'
360 x 50'
450 x 50'
540 x 50'
650 x 50'
750 x 100' PR - had the first 85' or so under 3o seconds. Took a little over a minute to finish. 1 drop to 80ish, 3-4 drops total. I was spent after this.

Sand Bag shoulder
220lbs x 8 in 60 seconds - last 2 shoulders didn't really fully make it up there but I'm going to stroke my ego and say I did 8.

Tire flip / Arm over arm sled pull
700lbs x 5 / 400lbs x 50'
750lbs x 5 / 400lbs x 50' - didn't stop watch it. I wasn't burning through these, pretty beat after this.

Load 1000lbs of weights back through the woods and into the shed...

Friday (today) - extremely beat after yoke from earlier and just an exhausting week of work.

Dynamic warmup + shoulder prehab

Axle Jerk from Rack - leg drive was not there today.
85 x 3
125 x 3
175 x 3
215 x 3
245 x 3
255 x 8 - missed the 9th. Not bad considering how torn up my back from feeling from yoke earlier in the week. Excited to see what i can hit here when it isn't the last day of the training week.

Axle Push Press - wanted to go heavy here and make up for the push jerk but it wasn't happening today. Better rest up!
125 x 3
175 x 3
215 x 3
175 x 12 - Maybe a PR. Definitely would have been better fresh.

Weighted ring dips and Tricep extensions.

Here's my eating routine for the past few weeks

1 bar of 88% chocolate (375 calories or so)
1/3 of beefcake shake

Salad with vegetables, olive oil and some type of meat/fish/bacon/eggs with more vegetables. Sometimes throw some grassfed cheese in there as well.

4-5:00pm - 1/3 of shake

6-7 training, lots of water

Meat and starch heavy meal. Usually potatos and vegetables

10:00pm - finish the shake off

Finish each day with 4500-5000 calories. I weighed 189 today at the end of the day. probably closer to 185 when I wake up.
