It was fun, but my shirt was ruined from the tire water (no idea how long it had been in there, but it was pretty dark and funky smelling), it took all I could muster to hang on for flipping it with wet hands, but that just addded to the challenge
Didn't skate much yesterday, extremely tired from previous night's training, so I just goofed for about 30 minutes and called it a night. Back to the gym tonight for upper back and shoulder work!
1x3 @ bodyweight (246 lbs. clothed, weight coming down slightly)
3x8 @ 45 lbs. added on (292 lbs. total with belt and attachment), done as 6 reps with a quick breath between each and feet barely touching ground, rest about 10-15 seconds, 2 to finish. Final rep on final set was pretty questionable, barely got eyes up to the bar, but I'll just say it's good and leave it at that
Standing strict overhead press w/ axle -
1x5 @ 145 lbs., not feeling strong, so didn't want to go too heavy tonight
1x2 @ 175
3x5 @ 195, not as bad as I'd thought, but probably couldn't have done more than 1-2 more reps on a set if my life depended on it.
3x10 @ 270 lbs., one set wide grip, one just about shoulder width, one with V handle
Log press in the rack, set at height where I just need to roll it into position and press -
3x8 @ 160 lbs., these were REALLY tough, kept over-rolling the log and whacking myself in the chin (I now have a nice little knot under my chin, looks like I won't be shaving the beard off this week
3x20 @ 100 lbs, rather than do something else, I just went for light weight high rep pressing to get more work in.
Meadows rows w/ barbell wedged into corner -
2x15 each arm @ 125 lbs. plus bar weight (never sure what to call it in this case, maybe 20-25 lbs?)
Sled rows outside now that it was dry -
1x20 each arm @ 280 lbs.
1x20 " " @ 330 lbs.
Used Prowler sled instead of usual one, didn't like it as much as the front would tip up on each row, couldn't feel as comfortable with that. Prowler is much better suited to pushing or dragging, rowing not so much.
Wrapped up with a quick shrug circuit -
50 reps of front squat harness shrugs @ 240 lbs (225 lbs. barbell plus 15 lb. harness)
50 reps hanging lat shrugs from pull-up position
Done twice, 30 seconds rest between each set
Was done, but while carrying the log back to the corner spot, I stopped to hit one set of log curls, 20 reps @ 70 lbs. done hammer curl style due to handle position, called it a day after that.
Feeling much better with training again, looking forward to keeping my focus on the summer goal of trying to shake off a few lbs. of fat while keeping strength from any noticeable decrease. Currently eating 3300-3500 calories on training days (high protein, moderate carbs and fat) and about 2400-2600 max on non-training days, high protein and fat, moderate carbs on those. So far, so good, goal is to try and take off about 10 lbs. by August without really doing much of any direct cardio and no rough dieting, about 2 lbs. of fat gone so far in 2-3 weeks, so things are on course!
