I just wanted to post a mini pseudoexperiment I did last week. Beginning on Sunday, I trained the entire body every day. Now, the reason I call it a pseudoexperiment is because it was very much by the seat of my pants. I sort of did what I felt like and what I was motivated to every day. I didn’t keep a log or record exactly what I did. I relied on how I felt and what I remembered I did earlier in the week to determine what I did and how I did it. I’ll try to give a rough breakdown of what I did:
Weighted chins for singles and dips for triples, then heavy snatches from the floor for singles with hack squats or jerks mixed in just for fun.
5x5, hack squats (playing around with them on Sunday motivated me to do them) and power jerks antagonistic superset
2x15, back squats and leg curls, decline bench and barbell rows
3x3, squats and deadlifts, weighted chins and tricep lock outs
12 sets of light snatches done as explosively as possible for three reps
4x6 zercher squats and pull throughs
3x8 front squats and RDL’s, bench press and low cable row
Then that night, tire flips. We flipped the tire next to a railroad right of way and I found a railroad tie which I also flipped end for end and if that isn’t a sumbitch…
I’m not sure, it seems like I didn’t include all the upper body pressing/pulling work I did, but as I generally hate horizontal pressing movements, it stands to reason that they just didn’t register in my mind. Rest assured I did do horizontal pushes and pulls, with enough pushes to balance my pulls.
Today I’m not sure I’ll do any strength training, I did 20 minutes on the erg just to get loosened up this afternoon. Or maybe I’ll go in and do some moderately heavy singles in the power clean. Who knows…
Anyway, I just thought I would share, as this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and it just sort of came to fruition last week. I guess I’d like to do it again this week and then cut back to three sessions only next week to recover, but as always I’ll just fly by the seat of my pants.
