Rest Day

In my estimation, Andrew is taking part in one of the most important activities an athlete with goals can do. Besides always striving to base one's movement around mechanics, consistency, and then intensity, he or she must also record, daily, the movements used, the load(s) used, the set/rep scheme used, how long it took, and how one felt before, during, and after.

Failing to record is sure to contribute to many things, one of which is mental burnout and/or frustration due to lack of consistent and steady progress. This usually results in blaming the program instead of the individual.

There are many avenues by which a person can log all this information. For example, one can post it to this blog's comments, post it to Logwod, keep a log book and journal everything there, or maybe even having a running Excel spreadsheet at home. Whatever the case may be, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

  2. Made up 3-3-3 front squats today. 225, 245, 255--but only got 2 reps at 255. The second rep was a close call, and I was having trouble keeping my torso upright, so I didn't bother trying for a 3rd rep.

    Then I did 5 sets of 5 strict pullups.

    "There are lots of ways to stop being a pussy. Let me summarize:

    -Buy a Shit-Ton of Gear – I have to say, you look Elite as shit. $100 in Lululemon, $200 in Skins, New Balance Minimus…at just around $500 in attire you have the best looking 8 minute Fran time I have ever seen. Apparently you can shine a turd."
