Tweaked, Again

Betting getting a lot more sleep this week, though it’s not easy to stay comfortable on a tiny bed. Went to the Bay Athletic Club this morning to get in some squats. Nice facility in the hospital in Alpena.

Back Squat

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×215#
  • 1×255#

Fuck! Tweaked my back on the next rep with 255#. Not even heavy weight. Pissed me off. I’ve been doing 5×5 with more than 255# and no belt either. The bar was a larger diameter than I’m used to but I doubt that really made a difference. I’d been so careful over the last few months too and then to tweak it with something like this doesn’t make sense. Injuries rarely do though. Guess I’ll be putting the squat program on hold.


6 Sets

  • 8/8 Kroc Rows (45-55-60-65-70-70#)
  • 10 DB Shoulder Press (35-45-50-50-50-50#)

Had these planned and was still able to do them. Shoulder press with two 50s got tough.

Goblet Squats

  • 10×50#
  • 10×60#
  • 10×70#
  • 10×80#
  • 10×90#
  • 10×95#

Still wanted to get some leg work in if I could. With the weight out in front it took the load off my back and I didn’t feel it when I made sure to be very precise with my technique.


5 Sets

  • 5 Strict Pull-ups
  • 8 Strict Bar Dips

Don’t do those enough.

I went out and walked 9 on the golf course going to loosen things up. The back definitely affected my swing.

After going to a movie theater with my 4-year-old niece, I needed to blow of some steam.

Pushing Death

  • Death by Chest to Deck Push-ups.

Got 18+18 and barely got in that 18th rep, so didn’t game it to skip out on the 20th round. 2 rep PR from over 2.5 years ago at a much lighter bodyweight. Racking up the push-ups this week. That’s 189 more.

Oh yeah, done with a drink at my side.
