2017-12-19 training log

Today again was an exercise in just being in the moment. Don’t worry about the next set, or even the next rep – just worry about the rep I’m doing now.

I’m learning that this level of volume is something I can do, but not for long. I couldn’t see doing this for weeks on end. But I think 1 week of some good overreach? It’s perfect.

I’m learning that high bar and front squats are something I should do more often. They are hitting things that don’t normally get hit, and I will benefit from them long term.

I really really love the seated leg curl machine – it works my hamstrings like never before.

On the pushdowns, my right elbow has been feeling irritated so I switched from the straight bar to ropes. This allowed my hands to be in a neutral position and put less stress on the elbow. Not going to sweat the details here too much.

This was a tough day tho. Pushing to 1/fail, upping the weights, the reps, everything. I’m beat. 🙂

I will say that’s something mighty important here: rest and recovery. Gotta be on-point on this.
