I've been studying for it on and off this summer. I'll buckle down big time next week when classes begin again. Fall semester begins on the 20th. I have until the end of Dec to take the test and get the grade I want.
Going back to my roots.... SST = specialized strength training. It used to have Oly training + PLing but slowly dropped most of the Oly lifting. Well.... I'm going back and I'm adding another angle to it... SM.
I was talking to a friend of mine (who competed in WSM) who pointed out a very good fact, I'm focused on school so my diet, prehab, etc has taken a huge hit. He suggested looking up the WR in different sports and than taking 50% and attacking those numbers. It would be a fun way to keep training for strength, but also put myself in a realm of something that I can do while focusing on school.
I'm also coming back from an injury this year so this will be a fun way to push myself and do something different.
SO... 50% (I'm rounding up)...All raw numbers. I'll still use a belt and sleeves BUT NO wraps.
Once I hit those numbers (some of those I've already hit but I'll be working back up to them since the injury) I'll raise them. This should be fun and a nice change of pace. It'll also probably lean me up some which SS will like.
Thinking that I'll go back to my idea of training Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun. SS just started back in school and we have to be really diligent with time management so we're changing gears and we're both setting different goals for the time being. ACTIVE RECOVERY DEADLIFT/ BENCH
