This week I reflected on my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats after my last powerlifting meet.
My last meet of the year was full of ups and downs, but overall I'm happy with how things went.
This was my last week of training, and the focus was on hitting my commands and picking out my attempts.
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.
