mature athlete

Ramping up my training volume, especially on weak areas and without sacrificing intensity, is doing me a lot of good.
I've gotten a lot of questions about squat periodization lately. Here's an explanation of what I do and why.
For aesthetic and strength-building reasons, I've been doing higher reps in my training these days.
Most of this week was spent working on mobility and trying to alleviate aches and pains, but it was worth it.
My volume was a lot lower this week, but I still got in some quality work on the squat and bench.
My training volume this week was the highest it's been in a while, so I may have to take a deload week.
I’ve managed much better accumulation of volume this week, and not at the expense of intensity either. I’m happy with everything I’m doing and looking to continue the current trend.
if you could somehow know, with certainly, what the fully-realized you looked, felt, and performed like, how different would that be from the current you?
The high-rep kettlebell work I've been doing to prepare for the Tactical Strength Challenge has lowered my overall volume, so I plan to bring it back up in coming weeks.
My work schedule is getting heavy, so I have to pick and choose my workout scheme carefully to make sure I maintain quality.
I am going to rage against the dying of the light. Pick up the bar. Grab the rings. Squat heavy, and often. Look aging in the face and laugh. I will not go gentle into that dark night.
Today I'll discuss two important principles that inform my training, especially in my recent programming.
This week I entered a high-volume phase in hopes I can maintain or increase maximal strength and also improve body composition.
For the seventh cycle of mature athlete workouts, you will alternate a strength circuit, interval conditioning, an endurance circuit, and continuous conditioning over a 12-week period.
Between two rest days this week and a rough snatch workout, I wasn't at 100 percent. Fortunately a good front squat session on Sunday saved my training week.
This week was a testing week and also turned out to be a recovery week. Check out the videos I've included this week to see some of the results!
I woke up on Thursday morning with a swollen knee, so I was cautious with my workouts for the second part of the week to avoid aggravating the problem.
