Due to life getting in the way this week, it ended up being an unplanned deload week of sorts. Despite this, I did manage good results in the squat and bench.
This week was Thanksgiving, so I put all those extra calories and carbs to good use during my holiday training.
Good solid week this week, with good results in the low bar squat, deadlift, and tactical pull ups. Today I'll discuss how I determine my objectives each week.
Despite spending half the week cramped up in little aircrafts, I was able to get most of my training in. On Thursday I did some SSB work and am still feeling the burn almost a week later.
In addition to my powerlifting schedule, I’ve decided to compete in Strong First’s Tactical Strength Challenge on April 12th, so I've added a few things to my training.
A lot of this week was devoted to wrapping up some volume work from last week. Check out the video for some tips on pause squats and the sumo pulls.
Some weeks you just have to make the training brief, and this was one of those times. It was a light week due to work and travel, but I'll be back full swing next week.
A very solid week of training with heavy bar speed work mixed with some heavy volume work. I was also able to put together a couple extra coaching videos for the week.
I'm continuing to use the GymAware unit to measure speed on my lifts, and noticed a few improvements this week.
This week I continued working on speed and explosiveness, without going to failure on any of my core lifts. I also included video of some of the assistance work I do on a weekly basis.
Considering I was recovering from a heavy volume workout last week and fighting off a cold, I spent most of this week in recovery mode, but still got in some training.
There are just two weeks left until Worlds, and this week's training was encouraging. I set new PRs in the cambered bar squat, which has become one of my new mainstay exercises for squat training.
