Thanks for the tip, Christopher!
It’s been ages but I’m finally at a place where my life has settled down enough to be more active online (as well as focus on track).
Training is going great and coaching is going well. I can’t complain!
On the training side of things I am still training for the 400 and just finished the last max strength portion of work for the year. Last year I sharpened up and ran very well after reducing the max weights to once every 7-10 days for maintenance and instead used a lot more ballistic or power range lifts, as well as medball and plyo work. I finished up this phase hitting 2×295 powercleans as well as 4×435 squats. Neither were testing days or weeks, just days I felt like pushing myself.
I’ll be opening up soon (I have a hard time counting the meet in Boston where I ran injured), so hopefully things go well!
