One more lift to go!
I’ve gotten in to the habit of doing a little pre lift cardio. I run two laps around my gym which is equal to a quarter mile. The problem is that I do this in my lifting shoes. I’m not sure if that’s a good idea at all. Probably not. It seems to be working though. No back problems yet again.
For some reason the gym was packed out today. I wasn’t able to do any circuits. I did all my lifts in straight sets.
Here are today’s numbers.
Dumbbell Snatch (8×40, 8×40, 8×40)
Last week I only managed to do one set of these so I stuck with the same weight to get them all. I’m gettting better here.
Ranging Squat (10×140, 10×145, 10×145)
I added 10 pounds at the end and that’s about as much as I felt comfortable going up in one lift. I’m still getting used to doing these without any back pain. It’s crazy. I keep waiting for it to happen and it never does. Love it!
I wasn’t as tired as I normally am on these. Thinking back, I really could have gone up another five or ten pounds on that last set. Oh well, slow and steady…..
One Arm Dumbbell Press (10×50, 10×50, 10×50)
My left arm was much weaker then my right. Towards the end I struggled with the left but had no issues at all with the right.
Dumbbell RDL w/row (10×32.5, 10×32.5, 10×32.5)
I don’t know if I’m ever going to have these included in any future plans. I know I won’t miss them if I don’t.
I feel good about my form but the row part makes me pretty miserable.
