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.
A very solid week of training with heavy bar speed work mixed with some heavy volume work. I was also able to put together a couple extra coaching videos for the week.
I'm continuing to use the GymAware unit to measure speed on my lifts, and noticed a few improvements this week.
This week I continued working on speed and explosiveness, without going to failure on any of my core lifts. I also included video of some of the assistance work I do on a weekly basis.
Considering I was recovering from a heavy volume workout last week and fighting off a cold, I spent most of this week in recovery mode, but still got in some training.
I picked up a new GymAware data collection toy, which will be a big help in my training. I also included my first video on misunderstood cues.
This week was a straightforward week working on some of the key movements I've been focusing on in my training. I also hosted a powerlifting meet at the gym.
This was a lighter week because I was fighting off a cold, so I've included a video explaining my perspective on abdominal exercises.
I'm moving into a speed and volume period. I'm going to try and get my work capacity up and my bar speed up.
Sometimes, things just don’t work as planned. At this point I think I need to wrap up my competitive season, even though I never competed.
