    every few weeks i get something - a tweaked muscles, a niggling joint, whatever. some small, avoidable thing. and to make sure it doesn’t get worse i stop doing the squat or the deadlift or the sprint, whatever caused it. and i spend all this time not doing things i want to be doing. well, this last month is the final straw.

    i’m starting from the bottom. i’m nixing my current program and regressing back to the start.

    at least two weeks of foundational bodyweight work. mobility WODs. stretching, gotta focus on conditioning too so hill sprints, tabata on foot and on the bike, short and hard sessions.

    then i’ll start my lifts again, but i’m dialling it back to minimum weight. 20kgs. probably do some high volume work, slowly add the plates back on. the focus will be form, though.

    i don’t know what my rate of return will be. maybe ii’ll add 2.5kg a session, something like that. i’ll build up again. but.. form, form„ form. i won’t sacrifice form for weight. i had my eye on the wrong targets, i guess. gotta take it back to the form.

    the other thing i realised during my off-month was that my current goals, the pressing ones, the professional ones.. they require a little less time lifting and a little more time getting my sprints up, getting my endurance up. so i’m rolling it back from 3+ weight sessions a week to 2 sessions a week, in terms of ‘must do’ training. i can always add another lifting session once the other stuff is done - if i have the time or the energy. i’ll see how that goes. 

    anyway, just thinking out loud here. gotta write this shit down or in the morning i will pretend i never thought it.

  8. "I weigh myself every morning and record the results. I write in how many meals I ate that day, how much sleep I got last night and if I was able to nap. I check off every supplement I’ve taken, write down my best lift if I trained that day and on and on. I do this because I know that my success is entirely within my control and if I do everything I’m supposed to do, I will succeed."
