I went to the doctor the other day. Apparently I am iron deficient from the holiday season. He prescribed a higher dose of lifting to bring up my levels, and recommended a personal trainer to help with my intake.
I decided to get the generic brand of personal trainer, as I think otherwise you pay a lot of money for exactly the same product. The dose of the personal trainer was 3x8 for flys, situps and curls, to be taken directly before a meal.
I wasn't entirely happy with this treatment so I saw a specialist. They recommended I go in for a periodised high volume iron loading. Its a tricky procedure but I have already had a week of it under my belt. Fortunately the remedy seems to suit me so far, with the added Olympic movements really benefiting my shoulders.
Second week in and I wasn't sure whether to add weight to the C&J or to keep practicing the skills. Still seems hard to get the jerk right, and my wrists are getting sore on the catch. So I might practice this one with lighter weights a bit more (like everyday).
Getting through the leg exercises was a challenge. Really finding front squats tough, after not having done these for awhile I seem to struggle keeping the bar on the shoulders rather than the actual squatting giving me issues.
Finally moved onto my last dose of inclines and chins. They were better than last week, and the dead hang seems to be a lot more challenging than I thought it would be.
I think the Doc will be impressed, especially if I keep the intake up. Hopefully he won't need to keep checking my prostate now.
