Here's a quick update on training as I am headed out in 10 minutes to go to my good friend Lance Wood's wedding in Tucson, AZ!
Yesterday I went back to the Burlingame High School track to get some running in. Got a mile in 6:10 (really want to gt sub-6 soon!). The ran four long 100 meters, and four 50 meters. Times felt pretty good, and I felt fresh, which was real nice.
Lindsey got back later in the day from work, and we went down to the garage to get our strength work in. 5, 3, 1+ of squats and bench. I was able to get 7 easy reps at 330# on the squat. Like last friday, I am not totally sure why I stopped, I had juice to get at least two more, and I'll tell you what, my squats are feeling so good! Bench was fine, got 7 reps at 250# and felt very strong.
Next week is de-loading in terms of strength, then I am going to switch up my strength training approach. I am knocking out bench press all together to focus more on my shoulders, and I am taking heavy deadlifts out until I can feel comfortable with my form. Squats and strict presses will stay as the staples of my lifts, and I am messing around with how to put them together in terms of rep schemes. Olympic lifts will be more of a focus for the month f October for me as well.
More on all this later.
Never Stop, GET FIT.
