Decent week of training. Everything got pushed back a day... it's the offseason... I like being a little more flexible with my life and the Labor Day weekend called for some family time.
Tuesday hit my heavy upper work and all went well. Staying with some triple "max effort" (ME) work.
Wednesday was super fast paced and got through all that speed stuff in an hour... phew! After that, did a podcast with Tony Montgomery for "Beyond the Platform" so keep an eye out for that.
Friday, Ange and I (my new training partner), hit some shoulder work. Changed things last minute and did some overhead work... wanted to see how it would do giving my wrist a break from benching... and then of course lotta accessory volume. We were both a little chatty that day, BUT it was much needed.
Saturday hit some solid SSB squats, which I LOVE. Felt really good that day. Again, stuck with a heavy triple. I've been trying to back off some volume in my lower body to see if I can recover a little better. But those upper days just call to me, so I'm fighting the urge to do more.
Overall a great week. Managing to keep my head on straight lately, which makes me know that everything is gonna be alright. Still got my eye on some things in the future and I think it's important to keep those things in sight and work toward them, but yet not lose the importance of the here and now.
