What in the fuck?! Training update: 1/03/14

4 Jan

Wow, so the last few weeks have been crazonkulous.

I am behind on two blog posts that still need editing, and am also working on a guest post for Bret Contreras, which should all hopefully be coming together within the next week. Just been crazy busy, and even a lot of my training has been a bit rushed this week.

I am going to be starting my new program with Brian Schwab hopefully by the 10th of this month, so I’m excited for that! I have just been trying to keep up with my volume and getting some heavy work in as well. I am feeling good though, no tendon issues and form is running smoothly.

Back update: Feeling MUCH better, especially since I switched to sumo pulling. Only obstacle I am facing right now is a weak left hip, which tends to get a bit painful after heavy pulls since I’m not used to the form yet. But I am hoping that with my slow weight increases it will get used to it and the pain will lessen.

Oh, I’ve also cut the fish out of my diet again. Not going to go into a lengthy explanation of why for now, but just so it’s clear which route I’ve taken with my diet. I am happy with my decision.

    Ooh I’m interested in hearing about the fish thing. I’ve been vegan almost two years and have thought a couple of times about eating fish but I just can’t do it. Going this long without meat has ruined it for me.

    Anyways, just wanted to ask about the medicine ball slams. Do you find that to be an efficiency cardio workout? I’ve never done them but they sound interesting.

    You are very much so an inspiration of mine right now. I love that you are a vegan and lifting heavy – bucking the usual school of thoughts. I’m transitioning back to veganism so it’s great to see. Keep up the great work 🙂
