Coach Eck’s Training Session 3/7/13

by Chris Ecklund, MA, CSCS, USAW

Quick Thoughts:

  1. Physically exhausted still. Joints a bit achy. Another low volume day. 
  2. Noticing numbers are staying reasonably solid and not dropping off much as long as I can get some good soft tissue and warm up sets in.
  3. Feeling pretty good on BB Bent Leg Hip Extensions.  I think some of my early struggles with this lift is BB positioning and the first movement off the floor (feeling that I’m pressing through the correct arch).  As long as I pay attention to those two things, the lift feels good and I find not lumbar shearing or stress.

Have you ever wondered how Chris “Eck” Ecklund gets his training sessions in despite his busy schedule?  Below are his last eight sessions, complete with the rationale for each lift.  Enjoy!

Quick Thoughts:

  1. No strength work today (I already got in 4 days this week, which is plenty for me).
  2. Just a fun workout of 6v6 soccer with the Prevail team.  Our games, unfortunately, are reminding me that I am brutally out of “conditioning” shape for soccer.  A little unhappy about that as I know I have more fun when I’m in a bit better condition.  Will have to work on that over the next 2 months.
