This week was Thanksgiving, so I put all those extra calories and carbs to good use during my holiday training.
Despite spending half the week cramped up in little aircrafts, I was able to get most of my training in. On Thursday I did some SSB work and am still feeling the burn almost a week later.
A lot of this week was devoted to wrapping up some volume work from last week. Check out the video for some tips on pause squats and the sumo pulls.
Breathing and abdominal bracing are probably the most important aspects of successful lifts. This video will show you how to breathe properly so you can pick up heavy stuff.
A very solid week of training with heavy bar speed work mixed with some heavy volume work. I was also able to put together a couple extra coaching videos for the week.
I'm continuing to use the GymAware unit to measure speed on my lifts, and noticed a few improvements this week.
This week I continued working on speed and explosiveness, without going to failure on any of my core lifts. I also included video of some of the assistance work I do on a weekly basis.
Considering I was recovering from a heavy volume workout last week and fighting off a cold, I spent most of this week in recovery mode, but still got in some training.
I picked up a new GymAware data collection toy, which will be a big help in my training. I also included my first video on misunderstood cues.
Technically this wasn't a deload week, but we'll just call it that. Aside from hitting a few PRs I took the week off, but I'm excited about some new training tools and videos I have in the works.
This week was a straightforward week working on some of the key movements I've been focusing on in my training. I also hosted a powerlifting meet at the gym.
This was a lighter week because I was fighting off a cold, so I've included a video explaining my perspective on abdominal exercises.
