Today was my first day back from Toronto. I felt some heavy lifting was in order. Lately, when I lift heavy I don’t pay that much attention to percentages. I go by feel. What do I mean by that? Well, I work up to a heavy weight and then I complete how many ever “heavy” singles I feel good about. I stop when form starts degrading. Often times I count “heavy” as somewhere between 85% and 95% 1RM if you are looking to replicate this at home.

I also do strength ladders. They are one of my favorite ways to build strength. I choose a movement and then do 10 reps at a light weight. Add a bit of weight and do 9. Add a bit and do 8. All the way until 1. Either format suits my needs well.

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
