I wanted to share Adrian's post because:
1. He's a super smart dude and I highly recommend everyone follow him for some knowledge dense content.
2. Over the past few months I've taken a step back to look at the big picture. We all workout for different reasons, but I know we all hate waking up with pain or dealing with injuries.
Even though high level performance may be a lot of our goals, do we want to have aches or cronic pain as we grow older? Not everyday in the gym needs to be a "run yourself into the ground with a heavy barbell" kind of day. Some days all you need is something simple to get the heart rate up and sweat.
Garage session today was 10x10 Strict press/ 10x10 Double Supinated RDL (Deficit).....goal was higher volume, quality movement, control. Finisher was push ups for max reps to abmat immediately to max reps to slam ball, idea here is ROM is reduced for full burn out. Fun stuff! Did a lot of CrossFit this week and needed some controlled movement to train the muscles but rebuild and strength the tendons.
