Thanks everyone! I may be crazy but I have a good time. Need to push out the stress somehow.
Slept in yesterday, so no workout. Finished hauling stuff out of my mum’s last night, but we still have some cleanup to do. Slept in AGAIN this morning, and was five minutes late for a meeting.
Dropped my 14 year old at dodgeball. After he had been playing in the league for a couple of weeks, I took a half inch wrench and yelled at him “if you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball” and tossed it underhand at him and he dodged. Then he picked it up and fired it back at me overhand. I caught it left handed. His mum said “I think you are out.”
Anyway, after dodgeball I got to work out.
Layer 1: (30s between sets) 3x120, 3x130, 3x140, 1x150, 1x160, 0x170, 1x170
Layer 2:(30s between sets, 10s between reps): 4x150, 5x150, 3x150 ( a little less than the 7-7-5 recommended but what can I say…)
Layer 3:(15s between sets): 5x135, 4x135, 3x135, and things started swimming without water so I was done again…
Well, layers aren’t for me. Burnt out on the OHP. My heart rate just doesn’t drop down in the the layers with the short rest break, and it builds up and kills me. Not yet literally, but I worry it is thinking about it. Not sure what it is either.
My chest burning in the tabata was just the asthma flaring up so I can keep that, just need a little ventolin pre-workout. Travelling next week so I’ll have to come up with a new plan for the week after.
531 BBB was OK, but I think I was gaining faster if I ramp the weight up each workout. At least for a little while longer, but I would like to work in some volume as I would like a little more muscle mass. I need to keep to longer breaks to get my heart rate down between sets or I just seem to lose it but I handle the lifting fine as long as I take it slow. I get away with the tabata because it is short. Well, try and get a tabata in the morning tomorrow and see what the hotel has to offer next week. I should have a workable plan for the week after by the time I get back. And if not workable I plan on continuing that fine line between clever and stupid…
