This week I reflected on my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats after my last powerlifting meet.
Although I had to take it easy this week because of a few injuries, I still learned a lot and taught an advanced class.
After about two years of not doing a snatch, I hit 85% of my all-time best result this week. How is this possible?
My last meet of the year was full of ups and downs, but overall I'm happy with how things went.
I competed at my first tournament as a purple belt on Saturday, and I took second place in the division.
If you aren’t already doing so, start documenting and tracking your daily, weekly, and monthly volume.
This was my last week of training, and the focus was on hitting my commands and picking out my attempts.
This week I took it easy and focused on getting ready for my next tournament this weekend.
Whenever you’re about to perform a difficult physical task, a big part of you will want nothing to do with it.
I am happy with my experience at Worlds, and after competing ten times this past year, it is time to rest and get ready for 2015.
When preparing for competition, simplicity goes a long way. Focus on the big three (bench, squat, deadlift) for effective training.
Every second of every day has been occupied by something I had to do for school or the gym this week, but I'm ready to take on the challenges.
