2018-01-11 training log

I can say, there’s a lot of volume going on. Hopefully as I get to week 4 it will be death-by-volume: both per-session volume and per-week volume. 🙂

That said, I look forward to getting back to lifting heavy. Sure there’s some wicked burn, and maybe next week when I can go 2/fail instead of 3/fail I’ll feel a little better about all of this. I have been thinking about “what next” and I fluctuate between a few things. Like doing the full suite of RP powerlifting templates, or doing a round of old-school-ish training, or going back to a 5/3/1 base but “smarter”. I don’t know. I think what would be wise for me to do is the full-suite of RP powerlifting templates, just to acquire some more knowledge. Main thing is I’m itching to get back to some heavier lifting.

Today otherwise was uneventful. Push push push. It’s really a blow to the ego to have to use such light weights, but with so much work and so little rest, it’s how it goes. I do get a little sore later on, so I reckon there’s some good going on. I just want to push, that’s all. 🙂
