Anvil or Hammer

20 Rep

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on May 23, 2006

In the interest of giving my arm a break I did another squat workout.
I forgot my notebook, not a habit yet.

First I did one pull up, overhand. The arm didn’t bother me until the last third. Not killer but not something I want to do reps with.
light warm up with nothing and the bar
135 X 5
185 X 3
225 X 3
275 X 3
275 X 20
Now this was not quite 20 mechanical, even reps. At seven I started huffing, at 12 I had to stop for two breathes, 15 two more, 18 my body is screaming to put the weight down and catch my breath, I took probably four breaths there. Then Slammed out the last ones.
When I got the weight racked I was sucking wind. The world was quiet and slow. Once I got my breath back I thought about going in for another. I realize now that it was my aerobic conditioning (or lack of) that got me and that the weight was pretty easy. We’re gonna do these again.

Push Press
185 X 3
185 X 1, failed on two. I realized afterward I should have set it down and gone back to it.
155 X 3 X 3

bodyweight X 5
BW+25 X 3 X 3

I have a strong desire to get some pull ups in her but am taking it eas on pulling motions.
I’m thinking about getting the swings going again tomorrow with my kettlebells. I am on the hunt for an army surplus frame pack to start carrying for my walks. Also tonight I went to buy a skin fold caliper set. They looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for them. I guess sporting goods stores don’t carry those.

Went shopping and filled up on good food.

Now, for an opinion poll…. Not really my thing but I’m taking input from all over on this.
When I move to the burbs I need a vehicle. I don’t really like cars all that much and I wouldn’t use one that much. How about a scooter? Honda, Vespa, Apaggio (sp?) and so on. Kinda gay? do I care? feel free to feed back. I’m just thinking out loud here.
