Not much to report in this week as far as training goes. Caught a cold last week which took it's toll this week, but I was still able to get in all my main training sessions.
I tried Zercher squats on Wednesday and I don't think I'll be sticking with it. It's a pain in the
ass arms. I'll reincorporate paused squats on recovery day instead.
I missed a 360 lb bench press on Friday, probably due to my back slipping on the bench again. Try again next week!
Lastly, I've been using a slow cooker for a couple of years, and have recently upgraded to a programmable pressure cooker. It's like a super fast version of a slow cooker (cooking in ~1 hour instead of 9 hours), and moonlights as a rice cooker, slow cooker along with a few other functions as well. Solid investment to save time and cook large quantities of delicious food.
Anyway, here are a couple of must read articles to check out:
- "Mikhail Koklyaev Interview on Olympics, Breaking Plateaus and Recovering from Inflamed Elbows" at All Things Gym
- A lot of real world wisdom from one of the strongest men on the planet.
- "The Detox Delusion" by Scott Gavura
- I've heard the word "detox" used for a lot of snake oil treatments. Don't be fooled!
