Template 2, Week 6: Quitters Never Win

...AND WINNERS never quit. But they do need regular treatment if they expect to keep operating properly. This week has been pretty triumphant. The volume keeps pushing me into new territory when it comes to base-building. It's way too early to tell, but if it is going to result in more strength and stamina across a range of strongman events (as hoped), I won't let something like an untreated muscle strain stymy the process.

Every so often, after overhead-pressing regularly for several months, my forearms get a little pained, and mobility and pressing strength diminish. This is when I know they are due for a needling.

Quaid has been bothering me lately, so I've reintroduced axe-swings this fortnight, swapping out meadows rows (which I don't really need to do every week anyway), and it seems to be a better fit with the rest of my squat routine to boot.

By the time I got to prowler drag, my legs were obliterated. I packed it in after a couple of runs at 190, and made a physio appointment for early next week.
