Week of January 28, 2018


I had another good week of training this week with the start of a new Windler’s 531 cycle. Training this week broke down like this:

Weight 260 215 300 155
Reps 9 9 11 9


I was pleasantly surprised with the state of my shot put technique after taking over a month off of throwing shot.  I am basically picking up where I left off, which is good because I am planning on competing February 25th at the Boston University Last Chance Qualifier. I am going to be going into this meet with limited time in the ring, but I am encouraged by practice on Sunday and by how I have been feeling in the weight room. The week leading up to the meet happens to be a deload week based on my plan, which is great because I can train through the meet while still being fresh and ready to compete. Overall, I am excited about how training has been going, and I am looking forward to competing in a couple weeks.

Not Great but Getting Better
