A general training update;
I’m pretty sure that I have decided what the next four or so months of training are going to look like;
For the next two (1.5 really) weeks I’ll be continuing with my current program. After that I’ll take a day off and do somewhat of a mock push-pull meet. If my quad is still bad I’ll just go for a bench single. No front squats cause I know there’s not going to be anything mind-blowing with the way things are now. I’m not competing anywhere so I don’t really see a reason to peak. After testing the max I’ll have another day off before going on a three or four week mini-diet. (The whole timing thing is still bit of a mystery, I heard that there are some holidays to work around with)
After the mini-diet is over I’m most likely just starting with school, so I’m going to let someone else do the thinking for me I’m terms of training; for the first time ever I’ve bought a program. (I’m pretty sure I’ve never actually followed a program written by someone else for more than a few weeks. And no, DC is not a program, it’s a template)
For anyone wondering, I got CT’s program for 1As on sale today. Crazy, I know. My main interest was to see how he put it together, and while it’s quite different from the way I’ve been training, it’s not too far from what I imagined it’d be.
Gotta say, the frequency on that thing seems a bit low compared to what I’m used.
Also, reading through it really reminded me of how poorly my gym is equipped. The program doesn’t have anything really fancy but I’ve still got to find a substitute for quite a lot of exercises.
It’ll be a fun experience, or at least I hope so. If it isn’t I’m probably going to go back to something like what I’ve been doing thus far.
So this also serves as a warning two months in advance; I won’t be logging a single workout from the time I’ll be running CT’s program. I’ll try to make some observations without revealing too much of the program though. (That’s not a promise, it’s a guess)
