On a side note, if you happen to come across a copy of the February issue of Boomers News Magazine, be sure to grab a copy as I wrote a fat loss article that is published in the issue.
Training has been going great lately; feeling strong and moving well. I've been getting some good soft tissue treatment done lately to hopefully finally get the tissue in my back that was torn back to 100%. I've been feeling pretty good as of late. I had a good workout today. It looked something like this. This is an intro week for this cycle, so I kept weights pretty moderate for the most part.
Soft tissue work, mobility drills
Overhead squat warmup
1) Reverse Lunge worked up to 205lbsx5 (kept it moderate with these, felt good)
2) 2bar Rack Pull worked up to 95lbseach 3x5 (I hold a bar on each side of my body like a suitcase deadlift, oblique killer, kept it moderate)
3) One leg short strap reverse hyper 3x8 w/ pause
Long strap reverse hyper 2x20
4a) Half kneeling cable hold 3x5 (1 extra w/ left leg down)
4b)Offset farmers carry 3 trips each side
5) Hip flexor sled drag 3 trips/Kb swings 52lbsx20/squatsx10-20 3rds (conditioning)
6) Low to high cable chop 2x5, 1 extra twd right w/ 35lbs
One leg calf raise, one leg dorsiflexions 3x5-8
I'm really working on quality hip movement, glute strength and optimal development of stability and endurance in my obliques and low back extensors. Tomorrow I'm going to do some heavy overhead pressing (going to focus on getting my overhead strength up for a little while and see how it affects my bench) and db work. Saturday I will do some speed/technique work with squats and continue to hammer out the glutes and obliques. Intense single leg work has been a focus over the course of the past year and I think I've made some good improvements there. Til next time, train hard!
