Week in Review
Week in Review on gillaspytraining.com:
We all know that one person, (usually more than one) that don’t think it was a good workout unless they are sore. Sometimes soreness is a byproduct of good training, it happens, but it’s definitely not something we should ever chase. We know how important frequency is, and having to take more days to recover will slow it down. Not to mention, the performance decreases that come with it. I promise there are a lot better ways to determine the quality of a workout. Say no to soreness chasing.
This is something I’ve been giving a test drive lately. I think we need to get strong in as many different movements and stances as possible. In tall-kneeling you have 4 points of contact with the ground, in half-kneeling and with this stance 3. The difference being between this one and half-kneeling is your base of support is wider. So does that make this a decent middle ground between tall-kneeling and half-kneeling? Just maybe.
Maybe I need to Patent this by now, because this is something I’ve been saying for quite a while. Goldilocks training has a nice little ring to it don’t you think? Forget Gillaspy Training. This not only applies to making sure volume and intensity is where it needs to be for each individual training day, but also over the course of a training week. Assuming you’re on a 6 day schedule, does your training week look something like this ish.. A couple tough days, a couple moderate, and a couple easy throughout the week? If you answered yes, then you are goldilocking pretty good (is that even a word). A lot of people never work hard enough to make their body have to adapt, and a lot are high intensity everything and can’t recover optimally from it. Be like Goldilocks with your training weeks.
