- I am no longer increasing the weight and working on building muscle within my supersets - rather, I am doing more movement with squat jumps, hopping, wood chopping, push ups, lunges, pull ups and improving on my fast twitch muscles.
- The pinnacle set is now just one move per day - Mondays I have squat to toes but not lifting as heavy as I was when I was doing the 6RM. So instead of squatting with 65kg, I am doing squat to toes with 50kg. However, deadlifts on Wednesdays remain the same but as I am on 8RM, I will be going back to the weight I was lifting at those reps.
- Core work remains the same but introducing more stability and flexibility/strength in the ankles.
I am in Sydney today and tomorrow but will utilise the facilities here for my training. As I am feeling a bit sick, sore and sorry for myself, I will do some recovery running on the treadmill tonight and will head to the gym in the morning for Day 2 of my strength program. I decided to not stress about swimming here in Sydney as I would have to being my bathers etc.
