I had another good week of training this week despite having to lift three straight days later in the week. My work schedule was very busy early in the week so I had to adjust my lifting schedule, and I dropped my conditioning session this week. The training week looked like:
|Training Week of January 7, 2018|
|Sunday 12/31||Monday 01/1||Tuesday 01/2||Wednesday 01/3||Thursday 01/4||Friday 01/5||Saturday 01/6|
|Squat/ Power Clean Workout||Bench Workout||Deadlift/ Snatch Workout||Incline Workout|
|1.5 Hours||1 Hour||1.5 Hours||1 Hour|
|Total Hours||5 Hours|
My top set (last and heaviest set) every week is an AMRAP (as many reps as possible/without failing). This week’s AMRAPs I thought went really well and have consistently been getting better. I continue to improve moving more weight for more reps. This week I squatted the same number of reps as I did last week with 250lbs, and deadlifted 15lbs more for an extra 3 reps this week. Below are my AMRAP sets for this week.

Overall, my workouts have been going well and I am feeling stronger. Looking at schedules for the weeks to come it will be difficult to stay on a good routine, but I will find time to get all my workouts in and stay consistent. Consistency is the most important part of getting better, and it will be the only way I will be able to reach my goals.
Not Great but Getting Better
