    Haven't done it yet but today is leg day...after work it's

    5x 2-5 squats @ 315 ( mostly working on correcting my depth)

    Superset
    2x30m farmers walks, a new PR attempt (258 per hand)
    2xSled pushes @550 on the sled.

    I will "punish" myself if I fail to PR the walk by dropping the weight on the farmers to 225/hand and making myself do 4 supersets instead of 2.

    Beastly! Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your strength and youth.

    overhead presses 3x10 (attempted)

    deadlifts 3x8

    lat pulldowns 3x10

    45 minutes on the dreadmill


    sweet baby jesus i hate overhead presses. i still suck at them. was only able to do 1 set of 10, 1 set of 8, and 1 set of 5. i progress regularly in everything but those freakin things.

    edit: *not including warm up sets*

    Work on shoulder flexibility and video your OHP from side view to evaluate form. You want a 100 percent northernly flight to lift the most. If you’re even slightly forward, you’ll make it harder.

    BodyCombat class.

    And since I’m no longer saving my legs for an event, I was free to bounce around and risk knackering my ankles as much as I wanted to. WOOHOO!

    7500 meters today in around 36 or so minutes (2:22 pace I think) @ 18 SPM. Felt really great today. Pushed a bit harder than I should have at the end and put in around a minute at 1:50 pace. Was seeing mid to high 1:40s. It's been a long recovery but I'm starting to see glimmers of my old self. Not many, but when I do on days like today, keeps me going.

    9/20/2019 - at the beach -

    Late morning - superset #1 - double overhead press with 24kg KB (3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-4-4) plus #2 - BW-only walking lunges x 10 every 3:00 then closer of double overhead press with 20kg KB x 10 plus BW-only walking lunges x 20 - completed 11 rounds in 31:16.

    Walked around perimeter of workout area between rounds and Garmin said this was 0.72 miles. Walking lunges felt good and worked off some low-level DOMS. Haven’t done them in a long time. Think they’re back in my training rotation.

    Late afternoon - slower walk to, on and back from beach - 4.02 miles in 1:20:53.

    Sometimes, life’s a beach.

    Did my first double at Krav tonight. Went to a regular Krav class, then stayed for a conditioning class. Felt great throughout but I’m pretty sure I’ll be feeling it tomorrow.

    Love that feeling, when you can finally put 100% in to classes. I've got 2 more races this year and then I'll be able to do the same (and I think my trainer is even more excited at the prospect)

    BodyPump
    Old-fashioned aerobics
    BodyBalance
    ...and the three miles of walking required to get to the gym and back...

    Tomorrow may be a rest day :)

    Yesterday, I did 1 hour of yoga.
    Today, I did 2 sets of 15 minutes on the erg, with 2 minutes rest. I got 2.15 average pace, slightly over 6,600 metres in total.
    Later tonight, I will just no up and down a lot at a gig.

    Friday was an 90 min in a 4. Four of us signed up for a semi-private lesson and it was really good. I was slightly grumpy that I was in 2 seat, but other was it was good. The water was also amazing.

    Today was a truncated row on equally flat water in an 8 (sitting 2...again) but we quickly got hemmed in by the fog. Really really dense low lying fog. It eventually got to the point where we couldn't see more than 400m ahead of us. That said my blade work seems to be getting a lot better which is really nice. Also amusingly, there were a ton of boats out - more than usual. Us, the juniors, and another club that rows out of a dock south of us. Their row back to their dock was likely very slow given just how dense the fog was.

    Next weekend is the first head race of the season. I'm in a mixed 8 which should be fun. I think I'm racing in two other head races as well but those lineups haven't been sent out yet.

    34.55 mile bike ride. Longest in a year due to medical issues. I think I can eat what I want today.

    Gym, worked on my legs - did sumo squats, side squats, abduction machine, cable kickbacks, standing hamstring curl and hip thrusts (which I found I was able to hip thrust 80kg, not including whatever the bar weighs - I was incredibly happy about that, I'm aiming for 100kg soon!).

    Also, I used to get so much muscle soreness when I first started strength training - like, I would barely be able to walk the next day - however, I rarely feel that anymore, despite progressing to heavier and heavier weights. It's made me kinda sad since the soreness was tangible proof that I'd worked hard, but still.

    2 mile walk with my son and the dogs. I also helped out at a self-defense seminar at my Krav Maga school today. Lots of fun!
