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.
Today I've included a video of my extra training day I do every week - also known as "Stupid, Random S**t Day."
Between moving to a new gym facility and squatting heavy - 800lbs, to be exact - for the first time in months, I think 2014 is off to a good start.
I finished off the year with some heavy 665lb speed squats and my last week training at our old gym location before we move to our new facilities. A good way to wrap up the year!
I missed Monday’s work due to some offsite training for work. So no bench press for the week. I went straight into squats on Wednesday for a short workout.
Last week I did some decent benching, so I decided to bump up the volume this week before the holiday craziness kicks in.
This week was Thanksgiving, so I put all those extra calories and carbs to good use during my holiday training.
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.
A lot of this week was devoted to wrapping up some volume work from last week. Check out the video for some tips on pause squats and the sumo pulls.
