LCS Week 1, Session 1

Due to the Revenant Rising meet in Wilmington, NC being cancelled we’ve had to switch gears.  For the group of guys that were going to compete we are testing a few select lifts and seeing how the training cycle stacked up.


For myself, it’s a blessing in disguise.  This was probably my 2nd worst training cycle in ten years.  I fiddled with too many equipment changes, lots of changes family wise (new baby, new sleep or lack thereof), and lots of sickness floating through the house as our oldest started school.  I’m happy to shut it down, switch gears and move on to off season.  I’m not sure what I’m going to be doing any time soon.  I know I’ve got a lot to work on and a few goals for later in 2018 but nothing pressing.  Time to get things under control and ride out the year.  With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, training is always hectic through the holidays.
