Heading into the final stretch of our strength training program and had a short week this week due to a family vacation.
Two big “Aha” moments of the week:
- I noticed that my food intake wasn’t the best and I was lacking energy on some of the days. This has also been a trend the past week or two especially if I am working out after work. Teh combination of not enough calories along with using my standing desk is making me a bit more fatigued. The key here is I have recognized this pattern early and will take measures to correct it in the coming weeks.
- My strength gains have been solid over these past 10 weeks and nothing shines a light on that more than the fact that I did 13 max rep set @ 245lbs on the DeadLift this week compared to 1 total rep @ 265 just 10 weeks ago. Insane!
Next week is an off-week due to a vacation and will be a nice chance to recharge the batteries after 20 weeks of CrossFit!
