Some of you have asked about my planning towards my training. I have a pretty good idea on how hard to push my body and when to ease back. I also know what my weakness are and where I need improvements. In saying that I have a basic template that I follow and listen to my body on a daily basis. This is all on top of my daily run.
Monday – squat variation / arms
Tuesday – chin ups / clean+jerk
Wednesday – bench / Sled
Thursday – deadlift / chin ups
Friday – shoulder press / arms
Saturday – lunges / sled
Sunday – chin ups / cleans or snatches
I also try and do 2-3 sets of upper back each day and single leg/core work alternating days. I try and row and use kettlebell swings 3-5 days a week as well.
If I feel good I push hard, if I’m feeling abit flat I will take that day easier. It’s all about listening to your body!
