500 days to go until the start of the Summer Olympics in Rio. I never thought it was possible but this has somehow made me even more focused than ever.This last training cycle we put a lot of time into increasing my speed under the bar, really trying be more efficient in my lifts, and of course, increasing my strength. We finished out the cycle, not by maxing out, but by hitting higher percentages consistently and much more easily. We have started a new cycle and I’m excited to see what comes from it. Here’s to the next 500 days!
