TRAINING UPDATE: 02-10-2017

Greetings from the hill country of Texas!  Finished up week 9 of Smolov Jr. bench adaptation today.  This has been one crazy rough week.  Since I’m pushing alone I’ve added heavy load rated cargo tie downs to my rack so if I miss a push I’ve got a spot.  This was a good move because I missed at 285lbs and the straps saved me from having to dump the weight on the floor and possible injury.

Training:

This week’s workouts included at least 1 – 2 drop sets per session due to failure.  I also learned a valuable lesson: I should not run and lift within the same 4 hour block.  As I gradually increase my runs I’m completed tapped within 2 hours of completing my runs.  I’ve decided not to run on days where I lift and it worked out well for me today.

Throws:

My intention was to do some drills during the week but alas that did not happen.  Saturday morning I’m going to go for a run in the early morning followed by a quick shot put session.  Going to work the deconstructed progression followed by some full standing throws.  I may mark off 40 feet to gauge where I am this early in the year and then compare later on in December.  I may do some wind sprints following shot put just to wrap the week up nicely.

Diet:

Food.  I’m sick of food.  I’m sick of preparing it and sick of eating it.  I joked with my buddy Mike that if I could just drink isopure  I think I would.  He said I should add some simple greens to the mix. HA!  I’m going to reach out to my friend Teresa and see if I can get some fresh insight and food ideas.
