Anvil or Hammer

Light Day(s)

Felt really beat up yesterday so I took it easy. Went with the wife to Gold’s and just did some like Hang Cleans, did some situps from the the back hyper machine, so I was bent over backward, those felt great. Then I hopped on the treadmill at 3mph and upped it by 0.5 mph every five minutes for 25 minutes. Just a rehab workout basically.

It could be because I ‘m still feeling beat down by the heavy weights of Sunday but I am thinking about doing a higher rep/lower weight program after the contest is over. Something using a lot of kettlebell work and circuits. Nothing is really solid in my mind at the moment but I’m thinking something like this.

biweekly strongman
biweekly weekend off (active rest)
2 olympic days (hang clean, clean, snatch and KB)
2 weightroom days (speed squat, pull up, dips, curls, rows)
kb workout 3x weekly

Of course this program leaves no room for my beloved tire dragging that I have done all of once right now. I haven’t figured out where that will fit in future progams I just know I want it in there. I also know that as much as I love moving heavy weights, I’m feeling some love for the outdoor type workouts (tires, sledge, stone, KB). The weather is nice this time of year and I need to enjoy it.
I’m thinking about trying to do something like the above from mid may through the end of June, then maybe try to go real heavy for 6 weeks or so. Then go back to a mixed workout. Nothing is decided and I’m feeling pretty exhausted (part Sunday’s workout, part recent insomnnia, part road noise in my apartment) today so I’m sure that is effecting my thinking.
