Ever get that feeling like you wanted to take up Yoga full time??

That was last week for me. I didn’t write a training log because I wanted to destroy the earth with a blowtorch one piece at a time, that is how annoyed last week’s training was for me.

What happened?

Hips hurt like hell, shoulder felt like shit and my gear isn’t fitted 100% correctly to protect those areas for me.

So what did I do? I talked with my training partner and formulated a plan for the next couple weeks so I can progress until I figure out how I am going to approach Relentless in November.

Two things will happen… either I do push/pull raw and work on rehabbing all the bullshit in the offseason. That means I will take a full year off of any competitions and get my ass back to full strength the RIGHT way, or I get gear that fits me correctly and take my chances.

The asshole in me wants to take chances, the logical side of me says I know what I have to do.

This week, logic wins out and I stayed raw and worked around my hip bullshit while I try to make it right.

** SSB Pin Squats With Bands **

Started out right at parallel with heavy bands. Been a while since I did these, in the past they have helped my deadlift tremendously and I expect the same result.

– 250.0 lbs x 12 reps
– 250.0 lbs x 12 reps
