30 Aug LCS deload week, 9 weeks out
Sometimes family just takes priority. It’s pretty nice when it falls in line with a deload week.
There’s a small group of us that’ll be competing Oct 28th at the RPS Revenant Rising in Wilmington, NC.
As always, a big thanks to Inzer Advance Designs and Captain Jacked for their continued support of TeamPRS.
Normally I don’t look forward to deloads, but only from the stand point that going light isn’t any fun. I do look forward to feeling better and spending more time out of the gym. After 2 decades of going to the gym, a little less time is really more beneficial. This week was no exception. My oldest daughter turned 3 and started school.
Most deload weeks are structured the same as my normal training weeks. I train 4 days a week, but just scale back the volume and intensity. This week however, I ended up only training 2 days. The tendonitis in my right forearm was flared up, so I completely skipped barbell bench all together. Really just ended up with a upper body fluff and buff day. I will typically train squat and deads on separate days but put them together this week to smash the week up and get out of the gym to spend some time with family.
Overall, it was a great week. It’s refreshing to come out of the deload week feeling eager and ready to get after it. No aches or pains and with a fire to actually train heavy.
