Been slacking so here’s a few days of updates

Pretty much tired of thinking about my programming, so I am going on a more instinctive approach and going to lift 6 days a week up until the week before the meet where I will rest up.

Its not total chaos, there is a method to my madness….

Today was fun. To be honest I miss this stuff. I love working on getting my explosiveness back as it will only help me in the long run. I haven’t done any sort of olympic style lift in ages so its a process.

Big PR on the rack pulls, the even better news is that my lower back felt fine.

02-05-2012

Squats
135 x 3
225 x 2
315 x 2

495 x 1
585 x 1

Just about shit my pants on the partial dead stops. On another note I feel I need to do more of these because they are just that goddamn hard.

On a closing note….. Tiocfaidh ar la.
