Sunday, 4/29/12

Workout 1.1.1

Perfect example of needing to be flexible today. My brother stopped by with his one year old for a visit right at my normal Sunday workout time. No big deal. It had been a while since I'd seen him or the niece. I did have plans with my family later in the afternoon though, so I only had time to squat.

Squat
45x5
110x5
135x5
165x5
180x3
205x3
235x3
260x1
280x1
280x1

That was a lot of work at the beginning. A lot of reps being burned warming up. By my 235 set, I was wondering if I would make it. The singles went up just fine though. I think this is going to work out great.

I'm wondering. What's a good amount of time to rest between singles? I gave it about a minute and a half between 260 and 280. Some guy was talking to me between my 280 sets, so that might have gotten stretched to 2 minutes or so. Just wondering.

Well, as I said, I had plans with the family, so I cut my workout off after that. I normally may have done a couple widow maker set of leg presses and some prone leg curls. I'll pop those in next time. Sunday afternoon was all about ice skating. Take that, glutes. Take that, abductors. Take that, adductors. Take that, erector spinae.

Benching on Tuesday. Simillar format. 3 or 4 light warmup sets. 3 sets of moderate triples. Singles.
