I came in feeling refreshed today. I have been eating and drinking all the things, and while my weight reflects that, I have to say I’ve been enjoying it. But, the break is over. It’s time to grind.
I am 11 weeks out from my next competition and 26 weeks out from StrongCorp nationals. I still need to qualify, but that’s where I’m aiming.
The speed squats felt solid, much better than the first week. I misread the program, and did 3 reps per set instead of 2. I’m really ok with that. I’ll probably up the reps before I up the weight on this speed day.
I jumped the log by 10# this cycle. I’ve been pressing well, and I know I was conservative here setting up the program initially. I was very pleased to get 4 reps each set. This is only 5# under the comp weight in July, so I’m feeling good about it.
Walking lunges are getting too easy here and I’ll increase those next time. I super set the lunges and calf raises. My calves are a bit sore form the truck pull, but I managed to get the raises done.
Hit the foam roller a bit and used trigger point ball after I finished. A solid day. Feeling hungry for the weights.
