athlete journals

These were my last few weeks of training before the Worlds Masters Weightlifting Championships.
Charles Staley has shared his journals so you can see how to optimize your training at any age.
I’ll be training four times per week and dramatically increasing my volume for the six weeks before my next powerlifting meet.
Last week I had the chance to learn from BJJ athlete Rafael Mendes. I even got to roll with him and ask him questions over a sushi dinner.
Your mental climate during workouts is one of the most significant factors for success. Here's how to optimize it.
Between a hectic work, school, and home schedule and a long break before my next competition, I'm having a hard time staying focused in my training lately.
My groin and elbow were much better this week. I'm starting to feel like I might have a fighting chance.
I had been lifting heavy for a few years, but never had a goal to work towards. I decided it was time to compete.
This past week has definitely been a burner for me. We’ve been drilling and rolling nonstop, and I’m making sure every minute of training counts.
Specificity is both necessary and problematic. Not enough and you don’t make progress. Too much and you’ll fall prey to stagnation.
I'm just not able to get any quality work in, and fooling around in the gym with light weights is incredibly aggravating.
Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been making a conscious effort to be less of a negative Nancy about things. I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.
I often wonder: If my sole or primary objective was to feel as good as possible at age eighty, would I still lift as hard as I do?
Competition forces you to take a look at your game and actually think about what caused your bad position or loss.
I finally got in to see the physio about my wrist. Unfortunately the day after the visit, my hand was even worse.
When I feel good about school, my training is good, and when my training is good I feel like the happiest person on Earth.
“My trainer says that if you eat too much protein, it’ll turn to fat.” What's wrong with this statement?
