Speed & Assistance Work

For the first time in weeks, I was really not feeling like training today.  I think this is due to increasing my overall volume of work since I am finally adding "cardio" back into my training, so I'm doing a lot more work per week.  Side note: I have done more cardio sessions in the past 2 weeks than I had in the past 3 months prior to that.  This is a large part of why I am currently fat and gross.  But I'm working on it.  I managed to get myself out in the garage (thank goodness I didn't have to go any further than that) and do most of my programmed training, but I did knock down/out a little bit of work from the tail end today because everything felt so wretched.

Single Leg Box Jumps

5ea x BW to 12"

3ea x BW to 15"

3ea x BW to 18"

2x3ea x BW to 19.5"

3ea x BW to 21"

3ea x BW to 22.5"

Left leg is DEFINITELY crappi(er) than right leg at these.

Hang Power Snatches

Supinated Grip Lat Pulldowns/Lateral Raises/Toes to Bar



Toes to bar was much easier this week in terms of reps and actually touching the bar.  I repeated my weights from last week rather than make my planned increases and scratched bis and tris at the end.  Glad I trained and also glad I shortened it.  If I keep feeling blah about training I will examine my nutrition more closely, but right now I think I just need another week or so to adapt to the increased exercises frequency and load.
