Ninja Warrior pt 3

“Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.”

After a long week of saying goodbye to coworkers going on to bigger things, canceling trips, injuring myself midweek training, and not to mention recording the very first Savage Science Podcast (way way way harder than I thought. Seriously in the comments whoever has advice on how to format a philosophy of training show please share or get with me.)

So to go into the Monday workout: I recklessly wanted to tax my hip-flexors and ability to stabilize though my trunk w/
5 x 12 overhead squat (OHS), 95 lbs
5×7(ea) deep lunges,
5×15(ea) step up, 36in
100 Russian  twist, 40lbs kb

What I discovered while doing so much unilateral work is that coming soon my body will be ready to handle a lot more bounding drills while at this heavy weight (223lbs/92kg). The reason I think this is important is because you have to learn how to be kind to your body and knowing that thrashing yourself is never a great decision when preparing for a new challenge.

So the workouts continue to be mentally easier than what I remember my body can do, but at the same time this isn’t finding my one rep max on back squat, bench press and deadlift like I’ve been doing for so long.
