    The added resistance made the unweighted sets feel really easy. Intend to work up the volume over the next few weeks and then increase the resistance.

    The GTG worked well over the last couple weeks but the volume was too high. I think the next time I do GTG I will increase the resistance and do less volume. I've only ever done 3 weeks of GTG and then I start to get burnt out each time. I think I will only use GTG as a sandwich protocol with an initialization 2-3 week protocol and/or a 2-3 week peaking protocol. Perhaps higher volume/lower resistance if initial just to get the muscle memory and less volume/higher resistance for peaking.

    Bad week this week. Have been sick most of the week and not getting much sleep so I haven't been training this week until this morning. Unfortunately, I strained my opposite hamstring on a sprint today. I need to figure out what I'm doing that is creating this injury rich environment. Could be tightness, could be low hamstring strength, could be lots of things I suppose but it's a problem none the less.
