Yesterday was rough, again. The “one thing” I added last week, was a mistake, and didn’t work, again.
I sound like a broken record player, mad tennis elbow.
Starting rehab. I likely won’t post that everyday. Just know that I’m adding 15-20 sets of 10 pullups everyday with 30sec rest in between each. Normally takes 3-5 days to heal.
Sound familiar? Good.
It’s a stolen tactic from Mark Rippetoe.
Always steal what works from the best.
I do keep pressing, he says don’t, but I also know how I’ve injured this and it wasn’t through pressing movements and it wasn’t through bad mechanics.
But, after I’m pain free, I’ll be scaling my pullups down to a 3 x 5. If I find progress, great, if not, it’s an easy baseline to pull from.
Thought of the day: In line with the breakdown, when in doubt always go back to the basics.
Ask yourself what was the 80% that got you to where you are today.
If all of your changes led you down the wrong rabbit hole, that’s ok.
Just head back to the last point of what was seriously working and start again there…
Hopefully at a higher weight, faster time, longer distance, etc.
