13 Jul LCS Vacation Training
Lowcountry Strength is moving into our off season after coming off a recent meet. The plan is to find a meet in the later part of the fall or early winter. I have no desire to get back into the gear while the gym temperature is above 85degrees. Haha!
Check out my latest article on Power Rack Strength about trying to Learn to Suffer.
I’m just coming back from spending a fablous week at the beach doing absolutely nothing. Twice a year, I take a full week off from everything. No training, no work, no diet. Just friends and family and no real regulations. I find that these times are way too few and far between. I’m spending a lot of time at work and despite not training for a meet, work has picked up so what I thought would be an easy summer hasn’t been. Don’t get me wrong, when work is busy, I’m happy. But I do need my family time and my family needs me. This week of vacation was an absolute blessing.
My girls are growing up real fast and I’m growing old way too quick. Priorities rotate through the year and after coming off a meet (despite not doing well) I have to take time to put my efforts back into work and family. This was an amazing time and I’m grateful for every day that I get with my girls (2 daughters and an amazing wife).
I’ve been taking the time to put into place my next training cycle. For now, it’s off season work and to correct a few issues that I have been doing my best to ignore. My right hip has some dysfunction that has started (continued) to aggravate my right knee. I’ve reached out to Paul Oneid to help me with it and he’s been gracious and patient enough to do so. My area of expertise is working with healthy individuals that don’t have problems. I will always reach out to get help in those areas where I’m not so versed. This happens to be one of those areas.
I’ll detail my long range plans in an upcoming log post but I’m excited to get back to normal training for a while and stay out of the gear for a bit. Plus it’s hot as hell in the gym during the summer so getting wrapped up in layers of polyster is not high on my priority list. Neither is heat stroke, so it serves a dual purpose to change training at the moment.
