Sorry it has been so long since I have posted.  Getting ready for our annual Jazz Festival has been a lot of work and very time consuming.  I haven’t missed any training days, but I haven’t had any time to post.  Instead of bombarding you with a bunch of posts, I am going to include all of those workouts in this post.  So…here it goes:

This is my last Strength Block workout until Mid-January.  I feel like I have hit a plateau in my training and I am going to switch it up.  I have roughly planned out the next 24 weeks of training with an APF meet in Omaha at the finish.  Starting on Monday 11/16/15 I will start Hypertrophy Block training.  This will last for about 10 weeks.  I will then go back to a Strength Block for roughly 8 weeks.  Lastly, I will finish up this cycle with a 4-5 week Peaking Block.  This will be the first time I have tried all of the Phases of training in a Macrocycle.  After my poor performance at the NASA meet I want to come back better than ever,  I was going to do a meet in Chamberlain, SD in February, but I am going to skip it to focus on getting stronger.  I will try to update the blog more often.  I am going to set up a schedule for posting dietary and training journal material as well as some product reviews that I haven’t had the chance to do yet.  Stay tuned for a lot of material to be coming your way.
