Strong work! A mental reset from time to time is good for you. I have a bad habit of letting work stress affect me outside of work hours.

Heat indexes ranged from 105-110 this weekend. Stupid humidity. If you haven’t started working by 630, you’re late & if you don’t pour sweat out of your boot by 11, you weren’t trying very hard.

Still, I’m about 3 more cuts away from having the whole tree cut into fire wood lengths. Then, the splitting party will be be on!

Wednesday 8.28.19

Cycle 3, week 8, day 3, 5's week

 

OHP

45/115

135 x 5/5/5

this went pretty well today, besides having to look at my belly every lift because my shirt wasn't long enough to tuck in. Live with it gym peeps.

 

Seated machine press. This was a different machine than before. One that you added plates and it allowed for iso-lateral movement if desired. I'll be back

180 (4 plates) x 6

140 x 9

120 x 10

110 x 7 aaaaand we're done there.

 

DB lateral raises.

25's x 12 /10

20's x 13 / 10

 

Lying Skull crushers with ez curl bar

70x12

80x10 /8

 

french press with rope attachment- move the pin until you're tapped out

55x8

47.5x7

42.5 x 7

37.5 x10

tap out.

 

I was going to do dips, Juarez Valley style but rep 1 put a pretty big strain on that tender sternum from a week or two ago so i called an audible. It was extra anyway

 

Finisher:

Air Dyne Sprints

10:30 x 8
