Time to Use My Whole Ass Again

EACH time my training takes a back seat, when I return to it I drop the loading and increase the volume. I did an upper/lower split last Saturday, as it had been so long since I'd moved anything it made more sense than jumping straight back into events. I added some direct bicep work after pulls Thursday night as my tendons felt like they needed it. Everything right now feels pretty weak. I'm going to stick with the upper/lower split on Saturdays until this condition improves, and I've just finished writing up a thorough mid-week press template that will see me clean-pressing with the log again after a seriously long time not touching one. Legendary Lifting now has a twenty-incher I'm keen to test out.

During the lock down period, Navarre and Anthony made it to mine for a Saturday training session (which I haven't recorded here), and I made a half-assed effort to squat or pull at Nav's place mid-week. But now that the gym is back to more or less normal operating hours again I have no excuse not to get back on with it, full time and using my whole ass.

If I train consistently over these next six months I'll be primed and ready to compete in the New Year... just like I was at the start of 2019, before my second bicep tendon detachment.
