HIHF

There's enough written about high-intensity, high-frequency training to skip some of the introduction. Weightlifters do it. Runners do it. I have tried to do blocks of it in the past, with little success. The usual issue is sleep. My rest and recovery rate supports lifting 4 times per week, 3 times per week if I run a couple of days. This has been the case for a long time.

This particular week, I've had vacation, so it was worth a try. I've slept well, and I've exercised the last six days. I've added 20lbs to my confident, anytime squat triple. I've added about 20lbs to my power clean, mostly for lack of experience with that lift. I've run three times, alongside my dog and my wife on her bike, which has been great fun for the lot of us.

I'm not sure whether this will carry into next week when I resume work, but it was great to be able to start without work in the way.
