New log to go with my new motivation! Just finished up a Powerlifting meet last week as a member of the Plant Built team (hooray) and had a lovely de-load week. Now its time to get back to it! One of my new goals is to work on my flexibility and core strength so in that vein:

6 Aug 2014 - Wed
1 hour yoga, it kicked my trash. I haven't sweat that much in a long time and I just shook the whole time. Gonna keep this in the routine.

Well, I start a new routine on Sunday so today was mostly just playin' around the gym.

Climb (boulder) for about an hour.

Bench: 10 x bar, 65 lbs, 95 lbs, 105 lbs
Chins: 2, 2, 1 - some day I'll be able to rep these out without assistance!
BB Bent Rows: 15 x bar, 55 lbs, 55 lbs
Kettle Bell Swings: 15 x 50 lbs, 50 lbs, 62 lbs

Now off to work. I promised myself I'd keep the complaing to a minimum, but that is just not possible for me! :) I have Lupus (doctors used to think it was RA for those who knew me awhile ago) and what that means is I am in a fair amount of pain a fair amount of time. Today and for the last week its been lower spine. Today not as bad as a few ago, but enough that I skipped squats.

Yoga today, how I've missed it since I stopped doing it a year ago! I could just do that and be happy. Okay, I'm lying. I'd miss the iron too much if I stopped lifting. :)

Nice journal! Have you noticed yoga helping with sports like bouldering?

Absolutely C.O.! The yoga I take is at a climbing gym as well so it is especially catered to climbers :)

19 Aug 2014 - Tuesday
A bunch of Strongman clubs and groups got together for a meeting tonight, then we all worked out afterwards so its off routine, but this is what I did:

Yoke: 100 ft x 270 lbs, 100 ft x 360 lbs, 10 ft x 470 lbs (yes, that is only a tenth of previous walks!)
Farmers Frame Carry: total fail, the frame they have weighs 502 lbs so I couldn't budge the thing at all. Tried a few times and even had them lift it to see if I could even just hold that weight and I could not.
Squat: 8 x 135 lbs, 8 x 185 lbs, 2 x 225 lbs, then with knees wrapped and belt on 10 x 205 lbs! Awesome.

Srsly, those three little things took 2 hours! It was great, I love working out with this group of people, its too bad they are 60 miles south of me :(

Yoga this morning. There was a substitute instructor so we went through what she called artistic yoga. It was nice, very fluid. :)

Skullcrushers: 3 x 15 x 45 lbs
KB Swings: 20 x 62 lbs, 15 x 80 lbs, 20 x 80 lbs

Another good workout. Easy and short, but just what I need. Hips are way better, but my shoulder is making itself known and I woke up this morning with hand pain, which is generally rare for me. At least it is all fairly mild today :)
