Charlie, I’m dropping weight as a consequence of eating properly (and training properly too I guess) closer to competition.
I basically cut out my 3-times-a-day overfeed meals (spread out the meals a bit to 5-times-day and stopped ‘eating to failure’). Also stepped up the intensity of tempo to about 70% (was basically jogging at 60% before).
I thought it would benefit me to be lighter and have greater relative strength levels??
Thanks Charlie. I was a little concerned, when I seemed be a little weak in the weightroom on Thurs, still achieved 150kg x 6 but felt weak, but in retrospect I may have just been wiped out from a tough speed session.
