    8/19
    Tracked Yes
    Under Calorie Yes
    Water 93oz
    Steps 11095

    I'm surprised at my steps because I didn't really do any intentional work out. My nieces were here all day so I naturally move more due to that, I walk my son to and from school now so there's that, I mowed the lawn in the afternoon, and worked on consignment stuff in the evening after the kids went to bed. More moving than I realized I was doing I guess!

    Great flex! You are looking good. Enjoy your leg workout tonight.

    @lmf1012
    Nice steps!

    @Tazaria87
    That’s a great check in. It’s nice that you get to walk your son back and forth to school.

    @rwood566
    Awesome loss! Extra ice cream is always a plus especially when it fits into our day.

    I am back though sun burned and exhausted. We had a ton of fun this week. On Tuesday we didn’t do a lot but we took the grandkids to look at a couple of nearby beaches. Wednesday was a rainy day so after breakfast we headed outside to dance and play in the rain. We spent the afternoon at an arcade. It cleared up later in the day so we took our grandkids for a quick swim. Thursday my husband, daughter, son-in-law and grandkids went kayaking at Point Pelee National Park. I walked and then read while they were kayaking. We then went to the beach for swimming and a picnic lunch. Evenings were a blast playing games.

    I didn’t track my food while I was gone. It will be interesting to see what the scale shows tomorrow. I was very mindful of how much I ate. All our meals were made at the cottage except for pizza today. Anyways, back to measuring and logging.

    FRIDAY NIGHT IS HERE!!! Let the party begin... 🥳💃🎉🎈🥳

    Kay now party... But we had a great workout and that's worth clasping our hands together and shouting "IRON MASTERS!!!!" 😆😁😀😎🥰

    LEG DAY Recap...

    So as planned, I'm going ahead and using hooks to assist me in firmly holding the "big-time" weights when Deadlifting and completing Shrugs tonight and Bent over DB rows on back day. And I'm certain it made all the difference in my success today. 😀

    I hit all 10 reps for my first 2 sets of 265-pound Hex Bar Deadlifts... and I was hopeful of hitting 10 reps in my final set, but I made the mistake of completely relaxing before starting the 9th rep, and I completely unloaded the tension in my legs... Note to self DON'T DO THAT. I wasn't able to get the 9th rep up as a result. DOH!!! 😐🙄

    No worries though, this was a fantastic result... So fantastic I've decided to try a 10-pound jump next week. And I'll be happy if I can even hit just 5 or 6 reps. Afterall the biggest strength gains happen in this lower rep range anyway. So why not go for it. 👍

    Also, very happy to report, my back felt strong today. No discomfort what so ever. 😋

    Fair to say, the rest of the workout went equally well, I'll be moving up across the board. Leg Extensions, check. Leg curls were particularly stronger than last week. Shrugs, Check. Even my Calf Raises were much stronger, then I remember in fact they didn't even burn that much, which makes me think I need to make them harder. 🤔😀

    MINOR SPOILER / NERD ALERT - I've gone ahead and ordered a complete set of COC aka "Captain of Crush" Grippers... These are the Gold Standard in Grip strength trainers. There are 11 of them in Total, and the first one only needs 60lb of force to close with your hand, whereas the last one requires 365 pounds of force. In fact, there are less then handful of people in the entire world that can successfully close the last one. (I don't expect to ever be able to do so with one hand... However, it will be fun to try heck even if I can do it with 2 hands one day. lol)

    So why? Cause grip strength is important that's why. And I can bring them to work and use them Monday, Wednesday and Friday... Building strength in my spare time whenever I feel like it. lol

    So why again? Well, because I can now use the hooks and get peak gains from the Deadlifts, Rows where they count the most... And with the grippers I can still get maximum gains on grip strength. It's a total WIN WIN. Heck I even got the different small bands that you utilize to exercise the opening of the hand instead of the closing, using these are recommended so you can kind of unwind from all the fist clenching and maintain muscle symmetry between the muscles the close the hand and those that open it. 🤓😁😀😋

    NERD ALERT - Complete.

    Anywhoo, I'll definitely post up a pic of these bad boys when they arrive.

    Now a little bit on Lynn... She's a complete freaking Warrior Woman. Fair to say she did equally well today. Just nailed every set of her squats at 65 pounds... Nailed it with almost ease compared to last week. So proud of that woman. She may come in a small package, but she has a heart of a Giant! 😍🥰😍😎😀

    The Calorie burn... Off the hook.

    Celebratory meal.... Hell yes.

    That's that folks... Another completely successful week at Club Poobah! 😅

    I'm on vacation without a way to weigh in, so I'll be missing this week's weigh-in. Will weigh in next Friday.

    Thanks!

    Good evening everyone. I hope you enjoyed your friday. Use the weekend for recovery.
