^^ I know the feeling when you just feel blah.
^^ Yes per hand. Farmers walks are all body and a good challenging exercise that doesn't take much time to do. The 43kg is approx (there is a 11.5kg plate in there) and it is on a 2.5" thick bar. When you are a bit off one of the first things to go is your grip. So using a grip related exercise means you won't overdo things on an off day.
^^ C'mon!!! They are one of the true exercises in the world.
Anyway I didn't feel like training again. I'd just banged out another section of writing and was feeling But I decided to just do a little bit of weights to blow out the cobwebs. Ended up being a full session.
Overhead squat done as part of snatch
Clean and Jerk
100kg x2 (from the C&J)
DA: Thanks DA!
Samoan: I really like to snatch before a workout biggrinsanta
Bambam: Even without thick bars these are a great exercise. Just grab about what you can incline bench and go for a walk. If that is too much then you probably have strength imbalances.
After a day of staring at the computer on a weekend, I wasn't really in the mood to lift. But I did anyway, but clearly lacked energy.
105kg x8 (easy)
110kg x3 (got out of the groove)
110kg x1 (once again didn't feel right so just racked it. Don't want to hurt the shoulder again)
W holds (10sec)
PV: Yeh but I'm still treating my shoulder with kids gloves. It's difficult not to just ram home all the reps.
Lionheart: The big difference I'm trying to make really does require me to listen to my body. I know in the long run I'll benefit.
Samoan: I don't have a lot of benching option at home. INcline has a flat seat so that you slide off once you get over about 110kg, the DB's can't be loaded past about 50kg and are awkward at the best of times. Although I'm working out a way to use more loading on pushups that should be fun.
Had a crappy legs session last night. Felt stiff in one side of my lower back so I cut things short on the single leg SLDL and the box squat. Just didn't feel right for some reason. Probably all the hours in front of the computer.
Single leg SLDL
57kg x1 (cut it right there)
93kg x10 (just to feel out what was actually sore and do a dynamic stretch)
160kg x1 (just didn't feel right so stopped)
Standing calf raise
160kg x15 (calves are a bit stiff today!!)
