    Thur., 3/05. 218#.

    OHP: 45x..., 95x8, 135x5, 165x5,5,5. felt good.
    no rest drop sets: 145x5, 135x5, 115x8, 95x12. oof.

    Lat Pulldowns: 80x12,12,12. letting the shoulders stretch out between reps, then packing them back down.

    C2 Rower: been avoiding this piece of crap for a long time, because I'd always pull myself back into the forward position with my legs, causing stupid knee pains. Now, I do it slave ship style. 1 huge rep as fast and powerful as I can, then let the spinner spin and the clock run. Eventually, the spinner slows down and the clock stops. When I see the clock stop, I take a big breath and do the next rep. Boom - I'm a Viking ship sneaking up the Thames. I do this until the clock reaches 5 minutes. Average Watts: 60.


    Bachelor Chow! Oh, I've missed the simplicity of ground beef in a pan. With mushrooms, peas, broth, garlic, ginger, parmesan, hot sauce, etc.


    Found out the Olde Country Doctor who delivered me into this world has left it. Pouring one out for Herb.

    Bar Hangs: many.

    The Big Grocery Getting - stocking up for our inevitable self-quarantine when the Trump Flu hits.
    Snack on some sushi & extra salmon, then hit a hilly, muddy, icy trail for:

    4mi. hike in the woods - got to take my shirt off and get a little sun. It's 60 freaking Fahrenheits!

    Later: cheeseburgers with frozen hashbrowns for buns. It's like a deconstructed tater-tot casserole.

    Tues., 3/10. One corner of the new playground space has been more or less relegated the strongman corner. The circus DB's, log, tires, and farmer's handles are all right there. The stones, however, remain on the other side of the gym, right in front of the picture windows. All that glass makes me nervous.

    Log C&P: 90x..., 110x5, 140x1, 160x1, 170x1, 140x3. from lap to chest was excellent, but my skin (fat rolls) kept getting pinched between the log & my belt. Very nice triangular bruise.

    Incline BP: 45x..., 95x12, 145x5,5,5,5.
    Face Pulls: 30x30, 40x25, 25, 25.

    DB Hammer Curlz: 20x12,12,12,12.
    Cable Tri pushdowns: 100x12,12,12,12.

    C2 Viking Rows: 3 min., 99Watts Avg. exhausting, then I see the last person left the resistance dial at 10. I guess that's what we do, then.


    leftover pizza pie (pizza in an actual pie crust!) with fried eggs.

    DL: 135x5, 225x5, 315x5. in jeans, no belt. hook grip.

    Lat Pulldowns: 80ish x 12,12,15.

    cleaned up the breezeway over the weekend, moved the hobby weights out there. Have to remember where I put that kettlebell...

    warm up the shoulders with some club swings.

    a few SLDLs, then
    power clean into press for 5, then back squats for 5, then a BTN push press into front squat for 5, then press for 5, with my 77 pound bar.

    couple rounds of that before I remember that breathing hard in the cold air triggers my asthma. It'll improve. back to the club swings for some practice.

    Wife says the bar is too cold to grip. She's got a good point; my hands hurt. She's also talking about ordering a real rack and bar. It could actually happen.

    Default The Ultimate Spring Break.

    starting strength coach development program
    Well, things are - different now. But, that's just like, my opinion, man.

    I've got real time to actually cook, so food has been great. recent menu:

    beef lo mein
    lamb & potato curry
    something i call Ramo-Don
    bacon broccoli quiche
    chicken chimichangas!
    bacon/avocado/omlette sandwich
    pizza from scratch - sausage onion mushroom
    mini corn dogs - that batter was hard to work with.
    that thing where you cut up hot dogs, then pierce each piece with 5-6 strands of spaghetti, then boil them.

    Been pushing out some projects. restoring some vintage speakers, making obsidian jewelry, pounding copper wire into ribbon, yard work, etc.

    Oh, yeah, been working out, too. Or rather, 'exercising'. Now, 'exercise' is what you do when you can't go heavy, so you pile on reps & sets and actually track your steps.

    I've got one 5-foot bar loaded up to 77 pounds, an EZ-Curl bar loaded up to 37 pounds, one pair plastic DB handles loaded to 5 pounds, an extra pair of 10s, and a pair of whiffleball bats filled with sand (8-10 pounds) for club swings.

    3/24: SLDLs, Front Squats, OHP, BTN Press, all sets of 10-ish. club swings. 2.5miles walked.

    3/25: 2 miles.

    4/02: SQ: 3x21, club swings, 16 mile bike ride with beer. Good Leg Day.

    4/03: 0.5 miles.

    4/04: 0.9 miles.

    4/05: to the high school track! It's an ancient cinder track, like the one I grew up running/falling on. 100 yard sprints x 4. 2.8 miles.

    4/16: 2.25 miles.

    4/17: 0.9 miles.

    4/18: Track sprints: 200 yd, 80 yd, then quads started reminding me I didn't warm up enough. The HS football team leaves some stuff out behind the shed, so there was a light Tire to Flip x 13, then grabbed onto the soccer goal frame for 4 pullups. 3 miles.

    4/19: 0.6 miles.

    4/20: SLDL x10 into FSqt x10 - 5 rounds. Side Delts 3x20. 1-arm OHP with the EZ-Bar 3x5. swings. 1.1 mile.
