Classic training and the time

Classic training. Well basically mean no kit, over the last few weeks I have started to get some raw training in, working on a few points that I want to address. For me the main thing I do find with training without kit is the time scale. Normally my equipped squats would take me 2 hours to complete. Yes I do go slow but sometimes I just need to take my time. But no doing the same amount of working sets I can get through it in under an hour. Maybe even 45 mins and that’s going some. Fair to say that’s a big difference. So not only am I saving time in the gym I am able to get a fair bit more done also. While I do feel worked after each session I think using lighter weights will help me and after all it is not always about lifting big weights all the time.
So anyway for now it will continue and hopefully my raw stuff will start to come back up a bit and to a tidy level again. Another thing I will say my body weight is still low and holding relatively close to my comp weight.

Dom’s

Well fair to say after a little break from the gym the dreaded Dom’s have hit in and boy I can honestly say I have not missed you at all. It is surprising that I’m a few weeks you can go from lifting something g half decent to a weight that is far lower and feel like you have been hit by a bus. Suppose at this point it can okay get better is the phrase used quite a lot. Strangely though with regular training they disappear as quick as they come and then it is just the odd occasion they pop up again.
So for myself it is nice to drop right back in weight and now I am in a position to take it a bit easier for a while now and get back to some raw training in prep for the year ahead. Think most off my ore lay off aches and pains are feeling much better and the training at a much lower weight will definitely help keep all them at bay. So with time now on my hands I am able to address a few points that I would like to see changed around and to things that I know I need worked on. So with this all in mind and some sort off plan worked out that other thing I want to add back is the cardio to help me with my recovery. It is something that I don’t really enjoy but I know I have to do it. Being fitter can only be a plus for myself and help me with the work load when I am lifting weights so I guess they go hand in hand really.
So along with all this and my meal prep I am confident it will keep my body weight in check and close to where I should be and not up in the the high 70Kgs where I have been in the past, that is something I did not like and don’t want to be there again if I can help it. Don’t fancy being an 83Kg lifter at this point. Also I have changed the lay out off the blog and will have a little play about with it again and see if I can spice it up a bit. All the info is still here I just felt it needed a slight revamp after all it has been running in the original format for a while now.
