So, after this dismal showing last weekend, I need to get my shit together for the next meet. I really do not like being at this weight. I liked it better when I was a 275er and making the squat my bitch on a regular basis. I also know it’s as much psychology as biomechanics and I’m probably healthier, have more general fitness, am more attractive (not that it does me much for me) and have just as much potential for strength at a street weight of 250 than 270. So, instead of just piling weight back on, like I’d like to do, I’m going to do what I did this summer and make an effort to eat right, get my conditioning in order and put on some lean(ish) bodyweight.
I’m following one of my teammate’s advice and I’ve been eating a ton of salads, even though I die a little inside every time. I also did a half-hour on the stationary bike after class tonight. Needless to say, I’m ready to get back on the gym and do some man training.
