2018-06-29 training log

My knees continue to feel better, but I’m not pushing it — still not going to do leg work on my upper-body days. The addition of the PT work plus stationary biking afterwards is enough for now.

So – more back work!

Pressing itself is good. I have long struggled with a good setup that enables me to stay tight but also manage dizzy/pressure. I think I’m getting it. Basically after unracking I can hold body position but just let air out and take a breath in. Yes, that risks losing tightness and position, but I’m willing to trade-off for not passing out. 🙂 So far tho I’ve been able to manage it well, and I look at it this way. If I am weak in my ability to hold it, I’ll just keep working on it and get stronger — even if I have to take a few steps back to get me there.

Everything else tho went well and groovy today. Nothing exciting.

12 minutes on the bike afterwards. Each session I’m trying a slightly lower seat position to see what affect that has on my VMO and so far it seems to be a positive affect (hits it harder, feel more burn/tired in the VMO than anywhere else). So this is good.
