High volume in Olympic weight lifting...

During this training cycle we are having much higher volume. Needless to say it is destroying everyone who is lifting. What I mean by that is it is taking everyone to finish longer. It's almost like doing cardio but in weightlifting format. I personally love it because it pushed me past a lot of limits and makes me focus even more on technique. To everyone out there doing high volume or high number of reps. Is it be careful and focus on technique or you will injure yourself. Good luck to those who are training!

First day of school...

WEll I have a chance here to start over. When I say that I mean been a little more dedicated to my school work. I am going to try and be more goal orientated and make sure I stay ahead of the game. This will be a little more challenging but I am sure I can easily get it done if I stuck to it. Here we go!

Amazing Workout, And eating better.

Today was amazing this training cycle is going to kick my butt. But its making me such a better lifter. I am making the corrections and getting great feedback from my coach. He doesn't like telling me but he knows i have potential in this sport. Having him say that to me is the greatest compliment i can get from him.

Back to my dieting. I am eating better then i have in a couple of months. It feels great to do it and be conscious of what i am eating. I do not always eat the best but when i do i feel amazing. I am also trying to get my sleeping patterns back to normal because i have school coming up next week and that will be loads of fun! *sarcasm*

Day one of No fast food...

So here we go.. that journey we all take during the New Year or when we look at ourselves and flinch at our reflection. No fast food for a month... and maybe a little more than that. Going to take a closer look at all of the calories i am taking and trying to keep everything under 2.5k or less. Going by my daily activities we will see how things go. If i do eat anything fast food since i am forced to then i will make sure i have extremely small portions.

Lets try and keep this up!

Getting sick, Recovery, Motivation.

So i was fighting getting sick for about a good 5 days then it hit me on the weekend.. What a waste i know! So stayed home and tried to rest up and sleep most of it off as possibly. Now that was Saturday and Sunday felt crummy for about 85% of the day and now feel a lot better. Now thinking about some of the projects i want to take on that i been putting off for awhile.

Such as learning more about making Applications for the Android and Apple I phone. I think self teaching will help me stay motivated and keep me on the right course that can only help better my self in the future.

Working hard and taking one step at a time.

To be honest i didn't eat 100% healthy today. But i did get away with it because i worked out. And Going to run again tomorrow. After i rolled out my legs with my foam roller they felt a lot better! Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Edit: Did lightly job/ speed walk for a mile and a half. Just to test the knees and see if it wasn't going to affect them. It didn't so maybe some sprints tomorrow?

Cardiovascular training

Well had a good talk with one of my friends who is very informative about training a athlete and training all together. Says it be a good idea to start getting in some cardio training  during the week. I mean it will take more work and dedication but i will think it will be a lot of fun pushing my limits and seeing how my body adapts. But we will see how this works and affects my lifting and my body weight.

Week 2: Weight 210.5

So i am back to my normal weight i been consistently at. Will try to keep that at least below that. Will also do measurements next week. no point to do one every week lol.
