Workout #62 – Fri, 12/6/13

I’ve noticed two trends with this program:

  1. If I have a great day, it is usually followed by a lackluster one.  This is especially evident with pressing.  Lately I’ve been doing great with my push presses and then having mediocre bench days.  I think I may go very light tomorrow on push press and see what happens on Sunday when I close-grip bench.  Or not.  If I feel great, it will be hard to resist taking a crack at 250.
  2. If I have less than 24 hours of rest, my performance really suffers.  Today I was back 10 hours after my last workout and today was even worse than yesterday.  Still, I got something out of it.

    • it seems that after 24 hours, I can set PRs. Optimal? Before a meet I of course get more rest, up to a week can help. (specifically i have performed best with about 7 days rest for squat and dl, and 5 for bench) So that is optimal for competition, but would not be enough training if I only lifted once per week regularly. For my meet in april, I plan to lift up to the day prior – but reduce volume and intensity significantly!
