Switching days

Switching days

Sep 8, 2013

I started my day switch to better fit my training for the Arnold. This year the Pro Raw challenge will be on Friday, Feb 28th. Usually I lift on Sunday, so my training split of Monday Squat, Wed Bench, Friday DL, Saturday Shoulders is now pushed back 2 days. Now Sat is Squat, Monday is Bench, Wednesday is DL and Thursday is shoulders. I decided to do this for the simple reason that the amount of rest that  I get prior to a meet has worked best. If it aint broke don’t fix it. I haven’t switched days in 3 years so it took its toll on my training numbers  to say the least. I knew not to expect any PRs or even close to them but I still get mad if I can’t lift the most weight possible. I hate feeling weak. It makes me want to stab someone in the face with an old taco. I don’t expect next week to go well either but I will push just as hard as I usually do and get what I can.

Saturday 9/7/13 *new training day

SQUAT

  1. 495×1 @10 * really tired.
  2. 495×2 @8.5* got mad
  3. 530×2 @9 *still really pissed even tho I knew this was going to happen. Started looking for that taco at this point

* Because I was as tired as I was I decided to call off the rest of the work except Abs. My heart wanted to keep going but my coach mind was saying just rest up.

Thanks to Iron Authority for allowing me to have a platform to post up my training and help people.
