Creatine for the win. Between the twice daily red meat I've been eating for the last ten days and 5gms of creatine I've been taking for the last three my short term power endurance seems to be better. Today was not hard at all, and solo at that.
That active warmup hot bath I started taking too makes short work of the meatlocker I train in. I start sweating just a few sets in now. It makes all the difference. I just suck in the cold, til I get fully warmed up, it's just how it is.
Also found a seriously good groove on my swings today and it really served me well. Allowed me to 'hit the hole' better than ever and get perhaps the best stretch reflex hinge I've ever gotten. If I can maintain this it will really make a huge difference in my swing and my test
24 kg speed swings
15:15 x 10
No double breathing at all. Crazy good. solid power throughout too. Didn't even think about the clock at all even though I had to constantly look to see the go time but my mind was as solid as it's been in years with this.These long sessions are necessary for many reasons it seems but training the mind to be strong and relaxed at the same time seem to be at the top of the list
BW walking lunges
4 laps, these were hard, legs just pumped up. which is a good thing
started way strong and I had visions of 3 sets of 17 but not to be. great pump though
3 sets of 12 with 15
slow and strict
1 pm post bath
W 59 !!!! best numbers in forever
ruck tomorrow but we'll see what I carry. It might just a no ruck ruck if this crazy rain keeps up. Just a fast walk might be interesting. Don't want to wait four days for my ruck to dry out again,
