2014 USAPL Raw Nationals Meet Report

2014 USAPL Raw Nationals Meet Report

Jul 25, 2014

So it took me a bit longer to get this out than I intended but there was a mess of work waiting for me when I got back that had to get done first.  But here it is, my meet report from 2014 USAPL Raw Nationals. Pre-Meet Shenanigans Of course before I left, we had some things we needed to take care of.  Like making the traditional iced cream cupcake sacrifice to...

2014 USAPL Raw Nationals Weeks 17 and 18- Dramatic Dogs, Body Weird, SHOES! and The End

Jul 16, 2014

So here we are and the last two weeks have been a blur.  They’ve also been kind of hit and miss.  This isn’t really that uncommon for this stage of my training cycle. 18 weeks of training without a break is catching up with me a bit and it’s making recovery between workouts kind of dicey.   And since I’m still swamped at work and trying...

Jul 1, 2014

I knew going in that this week was going to be weird.  Too much stuff to do and not really enough days.  So compressed training and not a lot of sleep which is just exactly what you want when you’re in the middle of meet prep and recovery is supposed to be your primary goal.  Yeah…….. that was totally going to work out. Monday What’s the...

And just like that I’m behind again.  Again.  I’ve had a couple of really busy weeks (I know, like that’s new….) and just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write anything up.   Luckily, there isn’t as much training as usual to type up.  Partly, that’s because of my meet prep.  But it’s also partly because...

Jun 16, 2014

I’ve been lied to.   I thought this week I would be starting a taper and then I got this week’s programming.  Turns out “taper” might not actually be the right word.  Seems I should have just been calling it meet prep.  There’s quite a bit less in my programming but at least this week, there’s still a pretty decent amount of...

Jun 9, 2014

So here we are…….  6 weeks of training left before Nats.  And the point in my training where I start to just kind of be done with things.  I’m close enough to the meet to start thinking about it and considering what my attempts might be but still too far out to make any real plans.  I’m a little bored with my program (which has nothing...

Tuesday Squats for the day were 6 x 2 with a minute rest starting at 285. A. squat 6×2 285 305 325 345 355 365 Then I hit 3 x 5 paused squats at 335.  I got busted last week for my pauses looking more like a California stop so I tried to make sure they were actually totally and completely paused.  I think I succeeded because there were a few too many...

2014 USAPL Raw National Weeks 9 and 10 –  PRs, Donuts and Changes

May 19, 2014

Week 9 So contrary to the last couple of weeks, this week was pretty quiet.  No big drama at work or in the gym.  No more large acts of clumsiness (the little ones are so common they aren’t even noteworthy at this point.) Tuesday Squats were 1 x 8+ at 305 with a cap of 12.  They felt good and fast and I was very glad for the cap even though I felt like I...
