Finished up my first #tacticalstrengthchallenge over the weekend, which also happened to be my first competition.
I wanted to do something that was outside of comfort zone so I can focus more on the journey and development. To say how great of a success this was would be an understatement as I've lifted more than I've done in +3 years in terms of volume and intensity. AND I did it all pain-free besides a sore callus or two (more like 10) that held up until the day of the competition.
I followed a program that was designed for the #tsc. It wasn't random because random gets random results. We couldn't have been any closer with the initial goals. I went into the comp with these goals in mind: +400 deadlift, +20 pullups, and +100 reps on the KB 1h snatch 5 min test. I came out with
405 deadlift (new raw #pr)
100 reps for the snatch test.
The last bit is that I didn't rely on myself to do this #challenge . I involved a team to help me out. I put myself in the client's chair. I asked for help. I used my resources. I have several to thank: @sean_prevail and @jordan_moorhead for the program work and coaching (Sean, thank you for answering everyone of my questions, your insight, and supporting me from far away) @devanweis and @kevinjweis (for taking time on multiple occasions to watch me during my training and providing feedback and homework while sending extra motivation) @specializedpteducation of Dynamic Physiotherapy (for keeping me in tip-top shape and moving great), to all of my #family , #friends and #fitfam (for the endless support, encouragement, love, and confidence), and finally to @m_mae12 (for all if the unconditional support, love, pep talks, training sessions, meal prep, extra sleep, encouragement, time, and beyond).
I've got a lot of newfound strength under my belt, as well as some newfound respect and knowledge. Not really sure what my next step will be, but I know it'll much further ahead if I wouldn't have done this challenge.
