Took it kind of easy today -- mostly core work and skipped the plyos. I found my ankle weights the other day, so need to start using those on my flutter kicks on the bosu. And, for the first time ever, I saw someone else at the gym doing an extreme angle iso squat. It was a trainer who says he does it for explosive strength. :-) I haven't done them for a bit, so it will take my shins awhile to get used to them again.

There are some good musing about training and practices by Paul Yetter on this blog: http://createperformance.blogspot.com/. Some of his sets I thought Patrick might like. I saw one I might adapt for the HIT forum.

Why recovery days should be easy: neural fatigue

    Thanks for the links. The neural fatigue is intriguing and I (probably other mid-d to d-folks) need to be more attuned to this. I found Yetter's workouts good ... but the structure of the text hard to wade through. That being said, I've bookmarked it as the text-wading effort appears to be worth it.

    Neural fatigue -- men are especially susceptible. Or at least men who are quasi jacked.

    Does it come in a picture book?

    haha.

    Salo's workouts come in a nice PDF, though they take a bit of translation too.
