I had a so so workouts to end the week. But nonetheless got the work done. I finished off this week off with more bench, shoulder as well as core work. I found that as the week went on that my strength continue to sap.
5×2 Bench (Heavy)
5×10 pull ups
5×10 band pull aparts
5×10 dumb bell OHP
3×10 Barbell Sit-ups
3×10 Leg Raises
3×100 Jump Ropes
15 min Bag Work (Boxing)
I got a huge amount of volume on my Bench Press. I have never moved 315 more in a week than I have. As my training week progressed I began to grow more and more sore, but I still pushed through. I had planned to get 10×3 on 315 for my last workout before I noticed that I was just too sore to push that kind of weight for that many reps. Hopefully this weekend gives me the type of rest I need to recover and hit it hard again next week. I have 20 days until Meet day and I am still feeling confident. Not my best week, not my worst week but there is up and downs on the path to where you want to get to.
I plan on entering squats again in to my programming next week again to see if it my hip is still tender. If not I will hit squats hard again and continue what I had planned for this week. I want to shoot some videos of my training, so you guys can see what I am doing and how I am progressing.
P.S: Any questions on weight loss, adding mass, strength and athleticism to your body let me know in the comment section below and I will do my best to answer them!
P.S.S: I will let you know this upcoming week why I am doing bag work for cardio and minimizing traditional HIIT and ditching treadmill cardio.
