Strength training is a skill

Posted in Gym Strength by Mike on October 31, 2006

Back to the gym today. I know I should just accept thew weights and move on. I’ve been off of gym training for a bit but I can’t quite do it that well but I’m trying. Either way, in a few sessions, I’m sure it will shape up.

Warm up with jumping rope. Something I hope to work with. 

Squat, I was trying to find out where I was.
135 X 5
185 X 5
225 X 5
275 X 5
315 X 5
365 X 1
400 X pinned
I don’t know that it was too much, I just wasn’t feeling my groove.

Deadlift was out on account of sore and exhausted hands.
Straight legged deadlift
135 X 5
185 X 5
225 X 5
easy, hands were starting to fight so I moved on. This will be fun to play with and I need to go back and see where I was at before I moved outside. This may be the only gym lift with some benefits from that.

Dumbell Press
75 X 3 X 5
Easy walk in the park

BW X 3 X 5
I was surprised how much I have dropped in strength here.

hammer curls (rehab)
15lbs X 50reps

Headed home in hopes to catch Dan and Luke’s Halloween production but traffic and what not didn’t help. So, I missed it. Hope you guys taped it.
I was supposed to do kettlebells after this workout but forget tograb them before I left. I will try to cover those tomorrow eve and possibly a light jog.

I haven’t yet posted the big plan for this go round. I’m holding out for Friday’s training. I want to get more of a feel where I’m at so I can put some numbers on it.
