WARNING: CRITICAL ANALYSIS
You went on and on about how great your diet would be and what a great athletic specimen you’d be at a BW below 100kg but you lost interest and stopped after about a week and a half. I was actually pretty interested in the project and was disappointed to see you fall away from it. Unfortunately, it’s somewhat of a theme. I’ve heard you mention some great plans/projects you think up but they don’t get off the ground coz you lose interest due to a lack of day to day gratification. I’m sure you know this already and I doubt you mind my writing it but if there’s one thing holding you back from “greatness”, it’s this. Patience is a virtue…
Just been reading the comments.
Now you guys have made me feel bad for Hugh(I don’t really…but it makes me sound like a better person than I really am)because I am so much harsher than he is…and that is when I am trying to be nice.
I don’t actually think he’s that far off the mark…not necessarily for the reasons he stated but that really isn’t the issue…the issue is that I said I was going to do something and I didn’t…if I was one of my own athletes I would of kicked the crap out of myself…and all the lads…including Hugh know this.
I know it is a little off topic…but this is one of the reason that I think everyone needs a coach…or should I say does better with a coach…it is very difficult to coach yourself. I won’t go into a rant here and now…but if someone wants to argue with me or set me off feel free to disagree?
Anyway…enough about what a loser I am and back to more interesting topics…training.
When I told Chops that he’d have ‘cutz’ on his abs when he finished his preseason program I’m willing to bet he didn’t think this was what I meant.
Some of the lads have entered the ‘Fat Camp’ stage of their training.
Barnyard doing some circuit work…all he wanted to know was where ‘guns’ fitted in to this.
Basically it boils down to 5 sessions a week. 2 weights/conditioning sessions…2 strength orientated sessions and 1 pure conditioning training session.
Some guys do it for fatness and some for conditioning…I’ll let you guess which camp this lad fits into.
I got so excited this morning even I trained.
The 2 weights/conditioning sessions are essentially 2 15 minute blocks of circuit work with 3 bouts of high intensity intervals at the start, in between and at the end of the circuits.
…and no…before someone comments…that is not how you are allowed to do inverted rows in testing.
The 2 strength sessions are a Squat & Pull Up day and Deadlift & Bench day.
The pure conditioning day will be just that…a tough 45 minutes of ‘work’ of my choosing and design.
