I hope for this blog to be a good mix of theory and practice. In addition to talking a little bit about what I’m doing, I’ll be posting about strength and conditioning theory. What I choose to talk about will be influenced by what’s currently in my training schedule.
Prior Topics: Learning Phase (Dec/Jan)
This phase started around Dec 20th and lasted until January 29th. I learned how to do some Olympic lifts and variations using dumbells. I also learned and practiced my jump rope training.
Some of the topics that were written about in this phase were:
- goal setting
- program design by Tim Morrill
- program design by Matt Mackey
- Olympic lifting
- jump rope training
- dealing with foul weather and equipment restrictions
February: short circuit!
This training block is going to be a short block of time devoted to circuit training. The purpose is primarily to give myself some indoor variety in my training. I hope to see some benefit to improved body composition as well.
I realize February is about half over. Since the beginning of February I’ve started in on circuit training, experimented with Bikram Yoga, had an excellent conversation with a massage therapist and his students, had a visit from Colin McIntyre who hooked me up with an unique training aparatus, and had a visit from Tim Morrill who I met in person for the first time. So yea I’ve got some catching up to do in my writing!
Here are some topics I’ll cover before the month is out:
- circuit training
- visits from Tim Morrill and Colin McIntyre
- soft tissue work and massage
