Train 3 times a week. In between sets brainstorm ideas for your ebook and your website. Don't rush the E book, you want it to be quality stuff.

Set aside 2 days to just study, or study a little each day.Maybe incorporate what your studying in your website and make a cliff notes version of it?

Gear your website to a specific target demographic of client you want to draw in.

Perhaps find a partner or a group of people to help you run your website,take some of the pressure off you.

Are you doing a full meet or bench only?

you can train hard twice a week and make progress. just split it to make sure you aren't neglecting too many things and keep compound movements in mind. You are a middle weight, in powerlifting that is, and GPP shouldn't be a factor, so extra workouts shouldn't be necessary

I'll throw in my 2cents here, but if you only have 2 days, maybe your buddy will understand that you have to do more than bench, also you could just do a basic program that focuses solely on the compounds

Well, I've been ignoring this thread since we're such a small group and I thought it was obvious but....

Training for my next powerlifting is my #1 priority right now. I train 4 days/week and work on my site/business/study whenever I feel like it.

It's not the greatest, but at least I'm focused on the #1 thing.

Mutha Fucka....

I am seriously doubting my dedication to go through with the competition. Not cuz I'm scared of the competition, that part I crave, but I have had very little to no ambition to train these past two weeks.

I finished half my workout last night and said fuck it. My mind just wasn't in it and therefore my lifts weren't effective. It's pointless to fight through a workout if you'd rather be doing something else.

How do I get myself back on track??

I've tried to force myself into a powerlifting style workout that I hated. Do some powerbuilding hombre....train how you like, but live for weight on the bar.

That's kind of a thing though. I absolutely love my powerlifting routine. I love hitting heavy singles and doubles twice a week and doing speed/dynamic/rep shit the other sessions.

I just have no ambition to be in the gym.

I haven't officially signed up and sent in the money yet. It would be very easy to back out and wipe my hands. The only problem is, I've told a lot of people I'm doing this and if I back out, I'd feel like I'm letting them down. Not only that, but competing gives me quite a bit of street cred while I'm trying to break into the industry. Both with existing trainers/coaches/athletes and any future potential clients.

Just sucks.

Sometimes it is work. Maybe you just need to look at it as a job...until your motivation comes back.

My wife complains a lot that her back workouts are boring. I tell her that I'd rather be eating nacho cheese then tugging weight.

All I can really tell you is just do it. Maybe you need me to send security over and persuade you a bit?
