Starting my new training today. I'm working with my friend Brett Somerville. I'm gearing for the Capital Classic the first week of May. Training is going to be little different in that the first half will be working around the back issue while getting my weak points strong, then the second half will bring event specific stuff back in. What have I got to lose?
Close Grip Barbell Bench Presses
Band Face Pulls
Incline Bench Rear Delt Dumbbell Raises
28 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Back to lifting finally. Form felt fine but strength was definitely lacking from time off. Would have liked to have done another 20lbs for a small PR but it wasn't happening today. Face pulls are weird with the higher band tension since it really tries to pull me off balance. I moved these and the rear delt stuff quick as the gym was closing early due to the snow. I've done more than 30's but I felt like going light and going until I couldn't do another without taking a breath. Finished up stretching at home. Hopefully this is just the start of something good.
