I’m going to lift as long as I can regardless of what comes of this illness going around. Hopefully, my training partners can make it the entire time as well. Either way, I bet my Inzer SDP will protect me just fine from the Virus.
So I’m back in a little gear. The plan for today: work some raw football bar from the chest, then add SDP and work the triceps.
Here’s how it went:
Top set of 3 – 365 – this felt off.
675×3 (messed this set up) 4bd
Bamboo bar incline press: 3×10
Triceps press-down: 100
Lock pull-down: 50
One-arm KB row: 3×10
10 min walk to cool down, done.
Good session, high energy, but I didn’t feel like myself. I still got in all that I needed to. Put my size 60 SDP on and worked some medium/close grip board presses. I Worked my set-up back more, and it felt pretty good, though different. All of these little changes have made lifting more interesting lately, which is excellent. Using a wider stance will help me squat more significant numbers. Having a better and more efficient bench set-up is necessary for hitting a big bench. This is week two, and it feels better already, with no added stress to my back. And Fat Shane is getting stronger each week, which is awesome to see since we’ve been training together since 2011. Great crew.
This Virus is making everyone crazy. I don’t know what to think about it other than focusing on using common sense. There is a chance things could slow to a crawl in the coming weeks, and stores close, etc. This means food etc. could become an issue, so other than gas, propane, and extra food along with stay home more often, we aren’t changing much.
For those who may need some food next week or whenever but things are bare on the shelves, I would order some of Stans Meals: and stock the freezer up. Doesn’t get much easier than this.
Looking forward to bettering each one of these numbers from week 10 in week 11.
