Anvil or Hammer


Quiet on the set

Posted in Gym Strength by Mike on February 2, 2008

The gym was dead last night, really dead. For 45 minutes I had it all to myself. So I recorded a bunch of footage. I’ll do something with it. I don’t know exactly what yet. I was thinking too about the idea of having anyone who is interested send me bits of video and trying to splice it together just for the heck of it. Gimme a shout if you’re interested. It’s still just a whisper of a thought for the moment though.

2 X 3:00 jump rope with some stretching in between

Deadlift
70K X 5 DO
100K X 5 DO
120K X 5 DO
150K X 3 Mixed
200K X 2 Mixed

I wanted to go on to 220 and actually 225K. I felt good, I felt like I had it easy but I felt just a bit of a twinge where I injured myself pulling with Dan. I decided that a wise man would stop here and come back for it another day. For once, I was that wise man.

Today I’m feeling just a bit of it back there. I’m gonna try to hit some high volume, low weight kettlebell swings later and see if I can’t sort that out.

Situps + 10 lbs (behind head) 2 X 20

1 minute of the heavy bag

Seated Row 130 3 X 12
Dumbbell Press 65lbs 12, 12, 8, 4

1 hour had passed

Jump rope 1:30
Heavy bag 1 minute

Curl 95lbs 4 X 6
Dip BW 4 X 6

Jump Rope – I tired but something about one of those two previous lifts really aggravated that back issue. So I didn’t push it.

Leg Extension 110 4 X 10
Leg Curl 70 2X 10/10

Jump rope 3:00 (back felt much better)

Wrist curl 95lbs 3 X 10
Wrist Ext 45lbs 3 X 10

A good workout. I took my time, made some good decisions, and I’m happy with it. I’ll post back if/when I do something with the vids I shot.

    I was just digging through the video from this. I can see myself get hurt. It’s interesting. I was uneven from the outset, pulling to the right (the left side was the one that got hurt). Definitely bad technique.
