I slept in, but made it for open gym at 10am. I was the only one working out today!
- 15 Reverse Hypers (90#)
Watched some videos on technique again and made some corrections to what I was doing. Felt the movement in a lot more muscles even with the lighter load.
No B.S. Bench Press
- MAX @ 225 (7)
Matched my max reps from the first week of this cycle. The descent on the 7th rep felt like a really weird path and then I really struggled pressing it. Disappointing, especially since I stayed at the low end of the recommended 230-235 for the working sets. I guess another way to look at it is I was able to hit the same max reps number as 3 weeks ago with the seven previous sets all being heavier. 🤷🏻♂️ It’s important to remember that I’m still progressing and I have enough time to run a 3rd cycle before testing my 1RM.
- Double Unders
- AbMat Sit-Ups
- Russian KB Swings (53#)
My back is really tight so I scrapped other ideas I had for today. This was the gym’s metcon on Thursday and I’m always game for an Annie variation. I did everything unbroken in 10:39. There is a small chance I did 10 extra sit-ups in the round of 40 because one of the kids was grabbing my jump rope and I wasn’t sure if I was on 26 or 36 before I yelled at him. I’m 95% sure I did the correct number, but there is always that doubt.
No Year of the Engine workout today since tomorrow is a very leg intensive workout for Labor Day and my back could use more recovery time. I also don’t plan to have a rest day from the gym until I golf on Thursday.
