Entry #520

I'm owed an $85.00 refund from an incorrect payment charge by my school. With the money, I ordered:

War As I Knew It by General Patton
On Boxing by Joyce Carol Oates
Jack Dempsey: The Manassa Mauler by Randy Roberts
Science and Practice of Strength Training by Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky

Practical Programming for Strength Training by Mark Rippetoe and Lon Kilgore
Supertraining by Mel Siff

Brain food.

I abstained from training today, and tomorrow will likely follow suit. Monday must be met with full potential. Whether soreness is as much a factor this week as it was the last will be interesting to note. The reason for so much emphasis towards Monday is to ensure at least one day of the week consisting of maximum applied effort. Wednesday and Friday can coexist with cardiovascular and fight training endeavors to whatever degree in performance is sacrificed, with the goal being to diminish the effect of ongoing fatigue week by week while increasing lift numbers.
