This week of training went really well. I started a new training program that includes lifting 6 days per week. I will talk more about the specifics of this lifting plan in a post in The Throwing Experiment section on Wednesday.
I am taking a few weeks off of throwing to reset and start thinking about outdoors, so I only lifted this week. The timing of this break works well, because it allows me a couple weeks to get used to my new lifting schedule, before I add back in the fatigue of throwing.
A couple highlights from this week include a 5 rep max at 280lbs on Safety Squat Bar Box Squats, and 5 rep max at 255lbs on bench with a total of 4 sets over 225lbs. Overall, I felt like I went pretty conservative the first week, and I look forward to pushing myself more in the coming weeks.
I have included a screenshot of my main lifts this week below. One aspect to note is that I did complete 1-2 accessory movements after each main movement I just didn’t do a good job recording these movements. I plan to keep better track of accessories in the future.
