I worked on getting my squat a little deeper this week. I also blew my bench press PR out of the water!
My laptop took off last week, but I didn't! So this week you’ll get twice the workouts, including video of a brutal hip thrust rep battle. Enjoy!
I got in some solid training this week, and noted improvement in several areas - the barbell hip thrusts were heavier this week, and a great bench press session on Thursday as well.
I noted improvement in several areas this week, including military presses and hip thrusts. Looking good on my squat and deadlift, with some heavy kettlebell swings and goblet squats in the mix.
My performance at Worlds earned me a first place spot! It also showed me that I have a lot to work on in coming months, as I prepare for my next competition in April.
Tapering things down a bit this week as I prepare for Worlds, but I still managed to get in a solid week of training and also coach a weightlifting clinic.
Had a solid week, with a heavy squat session and my first time swinging with 125 pounds. With just two weeks until Worlds, things are looking good.
Other than lifting barefoot, I kept things simple this week. When you’re close to a meet, there isn’t a lot you can do to improve your fitness, but there IS a lot you can do to screw things up.
Hit some pretty good numbers this week on the dumbbell bench press, hip thrust, squat, and deadlift, and re-introduced military presses as well. Solid week overall.
I did curls in my workout this week. Yes, that's right - curls. I'm starting to rethink their usefulness. I also hit a PR on my weighted chin ups. Check out the video in my journal this week.
Testing out my back this week with moderate weights, after my injury to my low back last week. Things seem to be healing up fine, just taking my time and being careful.
Charles Staley wants you to test out his workout program - four weeks of free training from one of the best coaches on the planet.
