1. Kicked started Thursday with java and Butyeko; the latter was rough. Not sure what triggered that – yesterday’s diet was “clean” and the CP went well. Oh well, got it done.
2. How about a 600lbs leg squat press that was preceded by a 150lbs squat to jolt you outta your slumber? Yup, that was me during this morning uber short warm up run – I definitely need a warm up either on the elliptical or run before hitting the weights but I gathered that’s the reverse for most of you folks. To each, his own. Wokie, back to the leg pulping session (focus people, focus!)
a) Smith machine BB squats (first sets always trick you into thinking it’s easier than you imagine and that’s coz the first one you do is either set 0 aka the warm up one!)
b) Cybex plate loaded leg squat press (read the first sentence of item 2 above; glutes = IOMS)
c) DB walking lunges
d) Box jumps (opened my big mouth last week when we were reviewing what Adrian and I went through)
e) Technogym leg extension (another rough one; ok, even climbing the stairs to the mezz floor was tough)
f) Cybex prone leg curl (new-to-me weight)
3. It’s been so hot and humid around here lately that I’m cranking up the fan (speed 4) or AC. On this too, the weather is playing havoc with my nutrition – zero appetite – and meals these days have been light (read: sandwiches).
Thursday’s Mantra: 3Rs - Rest, Re-hydrate, Re-fuel.
