    AM
    Pull ups
    7,7,7 with 10kg vest
    13,10,11,10,10,10
    Finished with biceps and grip work
    Was going to do press ups and core in this same session this morning but I felt super heavy on the pull ups and just generally like a bag of *text deleted* during this and psyched myself out so decided I’d regroup and continue it tonight

    Took myself off for a 20 mile bike ride to get my head together then came home and smashed out about 400 odd press ups and a good chunk of core work

    Morning: 5 mile fartlek run.

    Evening: VPJFT+ Circuit.

    Finished the VPJFT+ but was actually quite surprised at how difficult it gets once you're in the last set. The way it really targets the core and gives no rest if you follow the audio, it cuts out all those little 2 second breathers you allow yourself when normally doing a circuit and your abs and obliques start burning. Even though I'm now hitting max scores on press-ups and sit-ups to the bleep, and do quite a bit of Plank in my phys, by the end of this circuit I was really squeezing for reps/time respectively. Now going to start doing it as a warm-up for every strength session until hopefully it becomes habit. Also going to start doing it twice back to back so 'on the day' it's no drama.

    12 mile cross country run with some big old hills made for a sweaty session in the 20 degrees of northern heat, also got 3rd place on a strava segment I’ve been eyeing up so happy with that but the KOM is definitely within reach!

    Suggestion: don't always train to failure. There is a huuuuge wealth of research out there that suggests training to failure is harmful, has a big effect on your central nervous system and can slow down the rate of progress.

    Obviously for our goals we need to test ourselves to failure once every week or so and once in RT it's out of our hands (I don't remember many times as a nod the first time round that circuits or IMF took us to absolute failure though, unless lads were genuinely behind the curve) but up to that point you will gain more from training to near-failure. That normally means stopping 1 or 2 reps before you feel that you'd fail.

    For example in my strength session today, I didn't manage to do the whole thing with the weights I planned. So when I knew I was on my last 'good' rep I stopped and lowered the weight, in the end managing to get more volume done than planned in the session too.

    By all means do a failure session once per week but you'll benefit more from not doing it any more than that.

    @KingDom i was waiting for a date to retake PRMC (Failed 1st attempt in January) but obviously that would now be a date for a vPJFT+ so unsure as to why I’ve been put on hold, hoping it’s nothing serious
