Last week I did some decent benching, so I decided to bump up the volume this week before the holiday craziness kicks in.
Week two of phase two was a success. The chubby guy in the mirror is fading away, I’m starting to see abs again, and although my nutrition isn't quite perfect, I'm getting there.
Finals are right around the corner, but I've still managed to get in my training. The schedule at Scranton MMA finally changed, so I can teach and train every day.
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.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about staying where things are safe - in love, in life, and in fitness. Change is hard, but embracing it can take you places you never thought you could go.
This week was Thanksgiving, so I put all those extra calories and carbs to good use during my holiday training.
This was the first week of my next training phase. Next week, the weights will move up in intensity and things will get interesting.
This week I had a few reminders that I need to make sure my basic techniques and self-defense are on point, including the seminar with Royce Gracie at our school.
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.
Rest week, the necessary evil. I’ve just begun the kick-start process, and took some time this week to evaluate the first phase so I can be better in the next.
I always envied people on the West Coast because I thought they had more competitions, seminars, and open mats, but this week I found out I might have been looking in the wrong places.
