day 2244 – increased volume

the newest squat assignment is increased volume with slightly lowered weight. i went in thinking it’d be okay since the weight went down by ten, but turns out to be really tough. i pushed through and finished it but immediately had regrets. my legs were shaking even before i was done my whole workout. i tried to roll, stretch, roll some more and stretch some more to help my case. right off the bat i knew i was in trouble for tomorrow where i have a fully loaded day of flipping, dodgeball then hockey. all i can do is pray because i’m in for a rough ride tomorrow

i’m not going to lie. i feeling pretty depleted after today’s workout session. for the first time at apex, i failed to hit my pre-programmed weights. i missed a number of snatches and fell short of the weight i was suppose to lift for both my snatches and front squats. i’m not going to lie, i saw the weights set in my program and immediately felt intimidated. of the missed snatches, i didn’t give the effort to fight for the hold. though i was three pounds short of my one forty five squats, i’m still pretty excited to have a small increase from last week

day 1315 – roost
