A new direction...

My current thought is that I will try and keep my posts to my personal experiences. I keep trying to write articles that are intelligent and and coherent; while teaching you, the reader about something important. Since my writing skills are neither intelligent nor coherent; I will point you to what I have learned, from were I learned it. Now I listen to a ton of podcasts, A lot of which would probably put the not so interested to sleep, but if you can read my blog without falling asleep you should be okay. My training knowledge, started with CrossFit, but has been evolving with my coaching and my personal training. Most training links I give you will reflect this.

You will notice I posted "nutrition" related links on the right. I think I may also post training related links as well, but one step at a time. Look for those in the next week or so.

Today's ramblings are from my personal training.

 I have been following a novice strength program to get my strength to were is needs to be, but I have been running out of time. I do my workouts on my lunch hour, and as the weights get heavier and recovery time increases I am running out of time. Next week I will change my programming from a three day ABA, BAB workout to a 3 day ABC style workout.  

My current program looks like;

A: Squat, 5 reps x 3 sets; Bench 5 reps x 3 set; Deadlift 5 reps x 1 set.
B: Squat, 5 reps x 3 sets; Press 5 reps x 3 set; Power Clean 3 reps x 5 sets

Next week will look like;

Monday                           Reps                       Sets
Squat                                5                               3
Deadlift                             5                               1

Power Clean                    3                               5      
Bench Press                    5                               3      

Front Squat                      5                               3
Press                                5                               3

Note: These are work sets, always warm up to your work sets. 

This is still a novice training program, I will have to adapt it further once I max out on a novice level. Intermediate programing will be planned on a monthly schedule.

Currently I am listening to presentations on Paleo Summit, which is a Free online event brought to you by Underground Wellness. Check it out, let me know what you think.
