Those pistols are badass! I've just remembered I put pistols on my "to achieve" list for 2014, but I don't think I've attempted a single one this year. I must rectify this.
Yeah, the pistols made me feel tough (and sweaty) as hell! I've been thinking about and making a few more bodyweight exercise goals for myself this year, like I want to be able to hit unassisted pistols for reps, I want to be able to human flag and dragon flag, and I want to be able to do one arm pushups. I've been working more core work into my sessions lately to hopefully help with that, and doing one arm pushups from inclines at home pretty much whenever to try to get myself there. Slowly but surely! But you should definitely go get some pistols in, they're awesome!
Today was really good for the most part, but my hands are tired. I think three days on heavy in a row just may be too much for my grip. Luckily tomorrow is rest day, but not actually rest day because I have a dodgeball game
Saturday I might take a little light too because I want to start working on some snatch progressions, but we'll see how it goes and how I'm feeling. Also I hit the forward and reverse incline fly superset again today, and loved it all over again. I think it might become a staple. My programming has been a little less organized the past few weeks, but I'm planning on starting the PowerBodybuilding plan in a few weeks when dodgeball is up and my Fridays aren't spoken for anymore.
The big news of the day is that the scale at the gym put me at 133 lbs
, which I think is the most I've weighed since I started lifting over a year ago. It makes sense because my hunger has been absolutely out of control, like I constantly feel like I need to eat. Last night I finished dinner and then had a huge helping of seconds... and then had a bowl of cereal... and I still woke up feeling like a starved beast. Something is definitely working right. However, that also means that my 2xBW deadlift is no longer 2xBW... 265lbs DL here I come!Close Grip Bench
