Training Week of February 11, 2018


This has been a very long week as the indoor season came to a head for my athletes, with championships and last chance meets. Overall, my athletes competed well and I think we have a good base heading into outdoor.   My personal training this week was not ideal, but I was able to get most of my training completed this week including two short throwing sessions. Training this week broke down like this:

Training Week of February 11, 2018/Week 3 of Windler’s Cycle
Sunday 02/11 Monday 02/12 Tuesday 02/13 Wednesday 02/14 Thursday 02/15 Friday 02/16 Saturday 02/17
Squat/ Power Clean Workout Shot Put Sessions Bench Workout   Deadlift/ Snatch Workout, Shot Put Session    
1 hours .75 Hours 1 Hours   1.75 Hour    
Total Hours 4.5 Hours          


As one can see I did not get my 4th lifting day in this week. Due to time constraints and my left elbow still giving me problems I did not get my incline workout in this week.  During the de-load week this coming week I am really going to need to work on some of these areas that have been causing issues. Despite being pretty beat-up I was able to post some good numbers on my AMRAP sets.

AMRAP Sets Week of February 11, 2018
Exercise Squat Bench Deadlift Incline
Weight 290 240 335 0
Reps 7 5 9 0


At this point I can definitely say I am in uncharted water, in that I have never done this kind of weight for the amount of reps I have been recently.  This is the strongest I have ever felt, I just need to take care of myself a little better, so I can continue to keep making progress. I still have a long ways to go in the weight room to gain the strength to compete at the national level in the shot put.

I am looking forward to next week. I should have some more free time and hopefully be able to get outside and throw several times next week in preparation for my meet on Sunday.  I am not sure how I will do at the meet, because I haven’t been able to throw much the past couple months. However, I am excited to see where I am at and it will be nice to get in the ring and have some fun after a long couple months.


Not Great but Getting Better
