This week I'll share some of the things I'm doing to check my squat for weaknesses and get my leg and glute firing the way they should be.
This week I share a video of the gym co-owner moving some serious weight. There's some funny competition going on at the gym and also some good news about my bicep injury.
I was sick this week but still competed in the Tactical Strength Challenge as I had planned. I have some video from the event plus a bonus video of toddler-assisted mobility work.
This week my journal includes my training summary, plus two videos - one training video and a second with some tips on how to improve your grip.
I realized this week that I've been focusing more on performance than on hard work. I decided to rededicate myself to hard work and adjusted my training a bit to reflect that decision.
My gym has grown rapidly, which is great but also makes it harder to focus on my workouts, so I'll share how I'm counteracting that. This week's training went well and my quad is feeling better.
I had some swelling and pain in my IT band and quad, so I steered clear of squatting and made some modifications. Also some video of the drills I'm doing to get my glute firing right again.
During my training this week I had a few moments where I could have kept going but stopped due to pain or discomfort. The last thing I need after all the rehab work is another injury.
I decided to take a deload week this week so my training was a bit lighter than usual. It was a busy week with travel and running a powerlifting meet on Saturday.
I got in some solid training this week, including some band work that proved to be quite the ass kicker. Next week I'll probably deload judging by how I felt Friday.
It seems my weight loss has not impacted my strength levels. I had some big lifts this week and also started pressing again, since my shoulder hasn't acted up all week.
I didn't get many full sessions in this week, but on the upside I had time to figure out how best to train for the upcoming Tactical Strength Challenge without aggravating my elbows.
