Speed n stuff...
Having dropped a quantity of carbs from my diet, smaller portions etc... bodyweight is down 800grams but also my training performance is down.
Felt lethargic this week and even a break from the diet mid week to demolish a Lindt bunny didnt help. Something is lacking or maybe my body just needs to adapt.
Tuesday: An accessory session 45 mins of stretching, then lat pulldown and lat rows, band resisted good mornings and reverse hyper.
Wednesday: Speed bench - 30kg with purple bands. Measured velocity with the gymaware device. 30kg was good, 40 kgs still good, 50kg a marked degradation in speed. Very interesting tool tho'.
Wednesday Eve: Dropped into my old haunt Definition 352 for an accessory squat session - nothing spectacular - 2x3 @ 60kg and 6x2 @80kg (knee sleeves - no belt)
Thursday - sleep in - yay`!! Real estate agent came to give me a valuation and, well, house is on the market....
Friday - Speed box squat- Saftey bar and deloaded chains. 80kg +3 chains aside 8x2
Conv deadlift against minibands - worked up triples increasing bands until 3x1 (with 3 bands)
Cable pull thrus 120
Cable abs (40kg)
Side raises 4x8
Heading in extra early tomorrow 5.30am for shirted bench - down to the two board.
