SHANE'S TRAINING - Week of Oct 2, 2023
Another week, another training summary. If you read last week's summary, you may remember that I felt my general strength was starting to suffer and I needed to incorporate more strength work into the week. That is exactly what I started doing this week. I took it slow to ease back into the heavier work without totally destroying my main lifts.

I repeated a lot of the weights from the previous week since I missed a few times. While I didn’t miss as much this week, things still didn’t move quite as smoothly as I’d like. This may mean I need to pull back training a little but I actually think I am going to try doing the opposite. I may need a higher volume with the main lifts to progress my skill. I don’t have much time to add many additional sets so next week I will likely drop the weight a bit in favor of more reps per set, from 2 to 3, and, when time permits, 1 or 2 additional sets. In a way this acts as a deload since the total intensity will be lower.
The addition of the strength work felt really nice. I’ve never been a particularly strong presser, but it always feels good to do it, even if the total weight is low. Deadlifts were the first movement that really bit me when I first started training and I have loved (and hated) them ever since. The snatch grip deadlifts left a soreness in my back that I haven’t felt since I started training the Olympic lifts earlier this year and I missed it. I love that feeling.
