The running was actually pretty brutal. I can tell that my cardio is no where near what it was when I was playing racquetball.
Well due to the CONTINUOUS back injuries I’ve decided to drastically change training up. I’ve decided to follow the new program by Eric Cressey, of whom I am such a huge fanboi. The product is called Show and Go and it will be quite the change for me. A lot of focus on mobility, soft tissue work(which I do just not enough of I think), single leg/arm work and just good stuff that I know I should be doing but don’t. This will be my experiment and I say now that I will stick with it for all four phases(16 weeks in total) and I will see where I land around mid January. If all goes to plan I should be healthy and ready to put together a program for nationals.
I do plan to do bench only at Provincials in mid October as my shoulder has come around quite a bit.
Anyway onto Day 1:
