13 Sep MDLP: Event Day 9/9/18
Sunday was the worst of it, and although every ounce of my body screamed at me to stay home, there was major work to be done. With so many limited training days left due to travel, I really do not have the luxury of taking a single event day off. That does not mean I did not take my bodies current situation into consideration. Something I have learned over the years is that training while sick is always a gamble. Sometimes you absolutely smash it and other times you dance too long with the devil and you end up crashing really hard after training, or worse, you get even more sick. I took this day as a way of polishing off 2 weeks of no events and testing my backs ability to do a decent log press and yoke back to back. I stayed within my lanes with a 285 log and a 600 pound yoke. Both light numbers for there given events but not so light It did not bring perspective. The log is merely a matter of rust but the yoke will be a series of Tetris style problem solving going forward as we creep closer to 850 pounds with a sassy spine and knee. Enjoying every day of this prep and forever grateful to be forging my skill set for the sport I love so dearly.
- Log press: work up to a heavy double, number pre set at 285 but hit 225,255,265,275 during build up
- Yoke: 3 x 50ft at 600ft
- Stir the Pot 1×50/50
Never Stray from The Way
