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.
This week I set a new PR on my hook grip hold - 500lbs for one minute. I've included a video with tips for improving your hook grip without doing too much damage to your hands.
I had some PRP treatment done on my adductor this week and also cut out carbs, so I lifted less than usual. In the video I've included some footage of the circuit training I do when not competing.
I was traveling this week so I only had a few training sessions. In the video I've shared some advice for organizing your training while focusing on multiple goals at one time.
I haven't worked on my hook grip in a while, so decided to give it a go this week. Check out the video for some helpful stretches to do before squatting sessions as well.
