I’ve been sabotaging myself by focusing on trying to attain strength and body composition goals simultaneously
My number 1 goal this year is to join the Strong First family.
Therefore Strength IS the only goal.
Quick Notes on what I’m playing around with
I’ve been breaking up my workouts into multiple Blocks and I’ve found this to be the most effective for me. Two workouts a day allows me to keep my training stress low and helps keep me focused on the task at hand.
Currently my Blocks are looking like this:
If Training 2 times per day
Block 1: Strength/Tension Focused Workout. Pull-Push-Pull
Block 2: Kettlebell Specific
In a perfect world when doing 2 Blocks I train at 6am and 1pm or 10pm and 4pm
If Training 3 times during the day
Block 1: Strength/Tension Focused (Pull-Push-Pull)
Block 2: Kettlebell Pressing Strength (Pressing Ladder)
Block 3: Snatch Specific Work
Ideal training times being 5am 12pm 6pm
Training 3 times daily is my preference but my schedule simply doesn’t allow for it.
On another note… Dan John recently made an update to his Strength Standards. I’ll write more on how they affect my goals later on.
