some stuff this week

Tues: decided to do some pressing. 16kg x 5/5 at 5 min intervals x 10 sets, got delayed for about 20 mins between sets 6 and 7. I think I'm going to take one exercise and perform some volume with it once per week.

Wed: warm up
1-arm suitcase DL 1/1 x 2 x 135#

Rack pull: 205 x 2 ; 255 x 1 x 7

ring tricep ext / gripball curl x 10 min - 28 rep PR zone

weekend update

Friday: back was feeling a little tender on DL after warm up. Decided to do some swings instead, these felt a little better.
24kg x 5/5 x 7

Saturday: hike/walk with just a little bit of running, was out for about 1 hr 20 min

Eating hasn't been too bad but still a bit more processed food than I am striving for. It's mostly a matter of planning ahead and having food ready before I crash. If my blood sugar drops I get very unmotivated to do anything, especially cook.

Here we go

I'm back to posting my training log.
Warm up with ASLR, toe-touch progression, Bretzel, pump and get-ups 8kg x 2/2 . Worked to keep shin vertical and other leg straight and on the floor.

Bent press GTG today 24kg 1/1 , 5 total.

DL 135# x 3
1 arm suitcase DL 135# X 1/1 X 2
Rack pull from 22" - 245# x 3 x 8

Ring tricep extension/ Gripball curl - EDT style
PR zone 10 mins- 25reps each

The ring extension is a crazy movement, though targeting my triceps it is a combo of a jackknife, pullover and a tricep ext.
The gripball is a 3.5" ball on a dumbbell handle

Today's weight felt a little tougher than expected.
