Full Body - Volume
I am currently coming off of a year and a half of almost constant training for a competition. I just finished up competing for a while with a 2nd Place finish at NAS Nationals and a 3rd Place finish at SCL England. I'm taking the next 14 weeks off from strongman events and will be putting on some weight and size during that time. I'm also adjusting to raising a new baby boy while still working, training and living life.
I feel like I've been going non-stop these past few weeks between Nationals, England and speaking in Indy, combined with my business and family time. But I love it and wouldn't have it any other way. Things are also fixing to slow down a little bit which is a good thing. I'm just trying to catch up on all the things that I got behind on during the past few weeks before that can happen.
One thing that's remained constant is my training. This is always a constant in my life and has been for 15+ years now.
It's also gun season for white-tail deer here in Kentucky. I'm typically a big bow-hunter, but this year I just didn't have the time to practice like I should or even go. Now that gun season is in I'll be hunting as much as I can these next few weeks. I'm a trophy hunter, but I also harvest a few does for meat each year.
On that note, an interesting observation. I've seen some anti-hunting posts on my Facebook newsfeed from some of the same people who promote eating grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, organic, etc.
I don't know about you, but I don't know what's more organic, grass-fed, free range and hormone free than venison I've harvested myself.
On top of that, the animals I hunt live in their own natural habitat. Not in some of the horrible farm conditions that even grass-fed, organic, free-range, etc. animals live in.
And at the end of the day it doesn't get much more "paleo" than harvesting the food you eat.
Ok... Now to the training. I had to push this session to Tuesday this week due to being sick on Monday. I was still sick on Tuesday, but wasn't going to put it off another day. I actually felt really good once I got going and had a great session.
