Cram Session

Somehow I forgot to blog this last evening….

Last evening was my final exam, before that, a workout.

I forgot my Id card so they let me into the gym but it means I couldn’t swipe into the kettlebell room. Time to get creative:

A few pullups to start

Warmup 135lbs
power clean
front squat
power snatch
overhead squat
power clean and jerk
back squat

135 X 5
225 X 5
315 X 5
225 X 20

Dumbell Snatch
70lbs X 10/arm

Dumbell Press
80lbs 8, 8, 6

Lat Pull Down
150lbs 8 X 3

Bicep Curl
72lbs 7/21*
72lbs 5 X 3

Tricep pushdown
I think it was 75 lbs
3 X 8

* 7/21 an old exercise  I learned in high school, it’s a barbell curl in three parts. You curl from the bottom to half way seven time, halfway to the top seven times then seven full ranges of motion.

I thought I might have over done it with this one. I started hitting the discomfort barrier pretty hard after the squats. I tried to keep the sets moving but after each set I need a break from the excitement or I was gonna heave. Even when I was done, took a quick shower and walked to my car I felt crumby. Once I sat down and ate some dinner I felt better. The above workout was done in a bout 45 minutes.
