2017-12-21 training log

Every time I have a session with this RP template, I think of something new, something to continue evolving my perspective.

Today was pretty simple. Already it’s evident the general approach is a full-body upper/lower split with A/B days. The A days tend to be harder, heavier, more compound; the B days are harder but in a different way with maybe more isolation. Some could argue it’s a heavy day then a light day, but it’s not quite that simple.

What I really felt today isn’t a breakthrough, just acknowledgement, of how of the 2 upper days, today is actually more back/pull and the other day is more chest/push. Both days have some of each, but there is a little more stress/focus flip-flop. So it’s not really heavy/light per se, but yet it is in a way.

I’m really looking forward to how things come out in the end — is all of this going to be good.

I’ve also been thinking about the level of volume and what would actually be sustainable for me. Because all this 6-set stuff is for sure too much, but good for a short bit of over-reach. Which then makes me think about deloads and that whole debate. Like I said at the start, evolving perspective.

Anyways, as for the session itself, it was fine. I did skip the ab work today because I had to get out of there to make a meeting. I am so hoping the next mesocycle will allow me to get in and out of the gym faster. 🙂
