disorganized chaos

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on June 2, 2009

I hear a lot about organized chaos, this isn’t that.

I took Friday – Sunday off from formal traning per schedule. I did get some nice extracirriculars in by planting a bunch of stuff in pots. Monday I was due in the gym for kettlebells but a minor crisis kept me at work until it was time for class, so Monday was out. Today I made a point of getting to the gym. I enjoyed my last workout so much that I decided I would do something more with a barbell.

Back Squat 135lbs 2 x 20

One of the the two squat racks is gone and the remaining one may as well be called the bench so I had the opportunity to do these from the floor which was cool. I get funny looks when I do a Clean and Jerk to the back, squats then a back jerk and back to the floor with the weight.

Upstairs to the kettlebell room for a bit of playing
16 K kettlebells (2 of them) jerks
4 X 15
I was surprised to find how much these impacted me. The jerks weren’t hard, the rack is. I’m fat so racking a kettlebell is more of a strength move for me than anything. I can’t exactly dig my elbows into my hips, my stomach keeps them away.

Tomorrow, I need to force myself to row. I’ve been putting it off too long. I really enjoy rowing but I just ahve a vision that I’ll arrive in the cardio room to find that either the rowers are gone of they will have not changed the batteries in the monitors, which were dying when I was in there a very long time ago and are surely dead by now. that coupled with my lack of HR monitor at the moment would make it all just very silly.

In other news, Scott Bird has a forums now. Check it out!
