Training Updates

It's been awhile since I've talked specifically about any training updates so I thought today would be a good day to do just that! http://distilleryimage5.ak.instagram.com/ada136c239b711e3aeb522000a9f14e4_8.jpg

1. I'm competing in my second Strongman competition (you can read about my first one here) in January! It looks like it's going to be a great event and I can't wait to compete again. A week or so after that, I've got the Lift Big Eat Big strongman seminar - January is going to be full of strongman awesomeness.

2. We had our max-out week last week and I didn't PR any of my olympic lifts. I was really frustrated but at the same time, I can tell I've made progress. None of the weights felt heavy - it was all technique issues. At this point, I'm not going to be doing much olympic lifting technique since I'm training for my strongman competition.

3. I did PR my overhead squat at 128# this morning (after a night of 3 hours of sleep - damn insomnia) - it's a 15# PR from the last time I maxed my OHS which was several months ago.

4. I've been doing some extra pressing work with dumbbells which means my upper body has been sore for a week. Wonderful.

5. I'm so excited to officially be an SR Bar Athlete! I LOVE SR Bars (check out my mini review here) and can't wait to do more things with these great company!

That's it! What is going on in your fitness life?
