    Thursday I got dragged into a 2v2 basketball game, which is the WORST version of basketball with the most open space to be moving around in. They wanted to run it back, so I played another game. We ended up splitting the games, one a piece, so they wanted to play a tie breaker. I don't know why we couldn't just decide it by points spread. So that was a solid hour of rather literally running around in circles. Naturally, this was followed by a workout that was 95% squats.

    For the first time in goddamn forever, the weather was decent on a Saturday. "Decent" in Bumblefuck, KY meaning "Hotter than Satan's asscrack, but at least it's not hailing sideways." So I did some cardio bullshit outside.

    400m "Run"/Waddle: 2x1

    Various Sprints: 40y 4x1 40y-and-back 2x1 20y-and-back 2x2

    Monday Holidays - When I have to drag ass to the gym entirely too early to get a workout done at double pace before the gym closes in the middle of the afternoon. Then get invited/dragged to my parent's place to celebrate/mow their lawn.

    The gym has some path around all of the cardio machines, weight machines, and various bench press set ups. According to the sign on the wall, 14 laps equals a mile. A little bit of math (and googling, shut up) says that means one lap is about 115 meters. In an effort to get better at actually RUNNING, rather than pushing things, shuffling side to side, and other such not-running activities, I did some running around this track. It's a pain in the ass, metaphorically, and a pain in the ankles rather literally due to the small size of the track, it being a square, it being essentially pavement, and it having zero incline around the corners. So I'd periodically change direction to give my other leg a chronic injury. It's all about dat symmetry, breh.

    Tuesday 5-28-2019
    Deadlift:
    495 lbs 1x1
    Speed Deadlifts: 365 lbs 6x4
    Stiff Legged Deadlifts: 315 lbs 4x10
    Roman Chair Sit Ups: 4x15
    Curls: 80 lbs 5x10
    Running Stuff: ~460m (4 laps) 2x1, One lap running/one lap walking (Running = faster than the pace of the 460m runs, Walking = Trying to get in and out of the mall with the one bloody thing I wanted to get in under 10 minutes pace) 4 total lap, x2

    The middle of every other week has been a bit lighter and varied, rather than simply doing a buttfuckton of standard squats and deadlifts. So I figured I'd do power snatches instead of power cleans this Wednesday. It has been quite some time since the last time I did snatches, and my trapezius muscles were sore before I even left the gym. I immediately regret this decision.

    Wednesday 5-29-2019
    Power Snatches:
    185 lbs 5x2
    Paused Bench Press: 285 lbs 5x2
    Pull Ups: 5x10

    Sled Pushing: Push down, run down and back, 10 "reps" of that with 1:00-1:30 rests

    Running Stuff: ~460m 2x1 then a series of running two laps and walking one that went on for four "reps."

    When I got in the gym on Friday, I walked past the basketball court and heard "Oh, there, we got six!" I didn't understand at first, but that apparently means that I had been volunteered to even out teams for 3v3. Which took half an hour, which set me well behind schedule, which meant I ended up doing Friday's ancillary training on Saturday.

    So I once again joined a basketball game to even up teams. Bad news is that we ended up playing an entire playoff series worth of basketball, and there's a DirtyRed sized dent in the sheet rock that's three feet from the baseline. Good news is that the running and stuff clearly has caused improvement. 3 months ago I probably would have needed immediate medical attention if I did all that shit. Now I just want medical attention afterwards.
