It's easy to get caught up in the desire to make gains and forget about rest.
Having a day to blow off some steam and do things you don't always do in the gym can have profound effects on your training and performance. Try it.
After a few days of struggling to make it up the stairs, I figured it was time to make some revisions to my training plan.
I’ll be training four times per week and dramatically increasing my volume for the six weeks before my next powerlifting meet.
I had been lifting heavy for a few years, but never had a goal to work towards. I decided it was time to compete.
To be successful in lifting, you have to use the greatest amount of intensity that you can sustain long-term.
Chris Duffin is a really strong guy, and his training logs provide a lot of insight for anyone who wants to get stronger.
If you’re a competitive athlete, the time for testing your maximum capacity is in competition, not in training.
I hit some pretty high volume at the beginning of this week. I continued doing the SSB squats with chains and have also started using the ab wheel on my days off.
After the last couple weeks of heavy volume it was time to cycle it down a little. The timing worked well as I had to take a day off from training anyway.
I've been coming off a cold this last week, but nevertheless I hit some epic lifts on my squat and deadlift, as well as some awesome volume on benching.
I managed to get in a heavy squat workout this week before I got hit with the nasty bug that's been going around in my house.
