Normally because my schedule generally does not allow training on Saturday (because of the team’s track meets) or Monday (because of work in the morning), I would do a hard hurdling practice today, but because the weather was poor and I’m a wimp I settled for Max Effort (ME) lower body lifting instead.
In general I follow a scheme of 3 days of lifting a week, on sprinting days, comprised of 1 day of ME lower body, 1 day of olympic and functional lifting, and 1 day of dynamic upper and lower body(recovery lifting).
Usually I have a recovery tempo day on tuesday, so I tend to have my hardest workouts on Sunday to allow for lots of recovery time, which is why I did ME lower body today. Here’s how my lift went:
Deadlift max 3’s up to 455
Step Ups with 80 lbs onto a 18″ box 3×8 each leg
One-legged hamstring ball curls 3×8
