Unfortunately it has taken me far too long to post my log here, but I suppose its better late than never. Without any other nonsense…let me share a little bit about myself.
My name is Dan Atkinson, I am a proud Xaverian and Springfield College Alumni, with a degree in Applied Exercise Science. I have been passionate about all things strength and training for as long as I can remember. I have competed in collegiate wrestling, strongman, powerlifting, and currently I am training for Olympic Lifting, with my next competition set as the Baystate Games in July. I am currently the Director of Training at CrossFit Resilience in Hopkinton, MA where I design programming, coach individuals, groups, and teams on a daily basis.
In this Log I am hoping to share some insight into how a “mixed” strength sport athlete trains, and how that training can be related to powerlifting and the pursuit of maximal strength.
Currently I am working with a fantastic Olympic Lifting Coach, Ivan Rojas of Risto Sports, who is helping me with my programming.
I welcome any questions regarding my training, nutrition, or the industry from my perspective, and they can be posted here, or sent to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is my training from 6/13/13:
A) Back Squat (All my squats are done “oly style” with a high bar and medium/close stance)
B) Power Snatch
C) Jerk Behind The Neck
Ab Work- Rollouts, Heavy Side Bends, Paloff Hold
Thanks for reading guys! I’ll get some pics and training vids up ASAP!
