Day 45/70

Seems I’ve been forgetting to post for a few days. I’m spending the first day of my vacation working out and reading Fitocracy. I don’t feel too bad about that, but the house isn’t getting any cleaner.

    • Using this for YAYOG “Chinese” push-up. W7/D1 Ladders. (W7-10 is Undulating Block, mixing up a bunch of different periodization techniques. Final sets were done w/hands on bball for instability… to failure

    • When I’m thinking about how much better I look and feel (late at night) I often forget about how freaking hard I’ve worked to get here. Nothing like a ladder set of push-ups to refresh my memory. These were done for good form, slowly and with 2-sec hold at bottom.
  • Bench Dip (Seated Dip):
    • 1 reps (+2 pts)
    • 2 reps (+2 pts)
    • 3 reps (+3 pts)
    • 4 reps (+4 pts)
    • 3 reps (+3 pts)
    • 2 reps (+2 pts)
    • 1 reps (+2 pts)
    • Being careful with these… tiny bit of nerve discomfort along the outer edge of my upper arm is triggering alarm bells in my head.
  • Chin-Up:
    • 5 reps (+26 pts)
    • 6 reps (+33 pts)
    • 5 reps (+26 pts)
    • 5 reps (+26 pts)
    • Some chins for the “I pick myself up” group challenge.
  • Running:
    • 0:40:25 || 5.5 km (+289 pts)
    • Usual jog/walk
  • Plank:
    • 90 sec (+31 pts)
    • 56 sec (+19 pts)
    • Plank-a-day. Doing these at the end of the workout doesn’t help with the time.
