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.
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.
