if you could somehow know, with certainly, what the fully-realized you looked, felt, and performed like, how different would that be from the current you?
The high-rep kettlebell work I've been doing to prepare for the Tactical Strength Challenge has lowered my overall volume, so I plan to bring it back up in coming weeks.
Despite a few days off, my training went well this week, with some progress in my back squat and front squat. My overall fitness also seems to be improving.
Today I'll discuss two important principles that inform my training, especially in my recent programming.
This week I entered a high-volume phase in hopes I can maintain or increase maximal strength and also improve body composition.
This week was a testing week and also turned out to be a recovery week. Check out the videos I've included this week to see some of the results!
I woke up on Thursday morning with a swollen knee, so I was cautious with my workouts for the second part of the week to avoid aggravating the problem.
This week was short due to professional obligations, but I included some video of the kettlebell snatch work I did. Next week is test time for powerlifts!
This week I started using a new method for my deadlifts and also set yet another 10-rep personal record in the kettlebell snatch.
This week I set a new 5-minute snatch PR. My job now is to gradually increase both quantitative and qualitative measures of progress from week to week.
This was week two of phase three. I trained for six days of the week and my legs were fried by the end, but hopefully it will all be worth it after my upcoming meet.
With New Year’s in sight and competitions looming, I’m starting to bear down on my workouts a bit more after a few weeks of abbreviated and low-effort sessions.
