What a boring ole week! Leading up to my mock meet on Saturday, there isn’t a lot planned weight training wise this week.
Monday I went in and did 3 sets of 8 reps @30% for squat, deadlift and bench press, then a little bit of foam rolling and stretching.
The plan for Wednesday was put off due to me not wanting to walk in torrential rain so I added what I’d planned to today (Thursday). This was a repeat of 3sets 8reps @30% for all lifts, plus 3 70% bench press singles. And more foam rolling and stretching.
I ordered a new Zuluglove Belt (makers of my current belt) at the beginning of the week as I’m on the last hole of my current one and its way too big a squeeze to get into it! It hasn’t arrived yet so hopefully I get get some of the stiffness out before Saturday when it does.
After this weekend, I haven’t decided where to go with my training next. I’ve enjoyed The Cube but it does feel a little slow sometimes, but conversely I also don’t feel too beat up. One suggestion has been to run the cube again, but miss off the first wave.
Another run of 531 could work too, maybe missing off OHP days and being a bit more sensible with the accessory work.
I think that top of the list could be The Lilliebridge Method however.
Obviously, I realise that the work you put in to the programme is what makes the difference, but I think that finding the programming that fits into my style of training is equally important.
Also swapping up methods keeps it interesting, and as long as there’s always that progressive overload then changing programme shouldn’t be detrimental.
Keeps me busy building spreadsheets too
