Anvil or Hammer

Take it apart to put it together

I took a couple days off from the gym and I’m glad I did. I needed to get myself back together. Up until today I kept a slow downward push of weight but today was cheat day so I’ll probably tack on half a pound, no big deal, it’s back to the groove, I’ll be down overall for the week.
Tomorrow I have to work at the gym but I can’t work too hard because the tactical challenge is on Saturday. We’ll see how that goes. It’ll be an interesting.

In all the spare time I’ve spent some time thinking about my training. It’s hard for me to not overtrain, I have a lot of things I want to do. I need to continue to hit max weights at least once a week. I need to get in strongman when I can but my schedule is killing that right now.  Tuesdays are a good day for double kettlebell action,but more on that in a sec. I want to work a single bell once a week. I ordered the Providence DVD from AOS and will try to do that on that day. I need to bring back the tire and sandbags and I’d like to do Olympic lifting. Oly, power, Strong, heavy kettlbell, light kettlebell, dinosar. That comes out to six days. So something is gonna have to be combined. Well see how I mix and match.
The real thing I have been thinking about though is how I organize my programs. I tend to do one thing then the other, then the other, with large pauses in between. I lift like a powerlifter. That needs to change. I need to start making something a little more dense. for example, in my kettlebell workout last Tuesday, it was a few swings, take a breather. Get soem cleans and presses and take a break. So on. They used to call it circuits, now people are throwing around the term turbulence training. It adds up about the same in the end.

I dunno, it sounded better in my head.
