Edited routine for today to include goblet squats & seated cable row. Replaced a delt movement. Now if I can just locate the stuff I need to use there. Have never seen such a huge conglomeration of equipment, barbells, racks, dumbbells, etc.!! Place is enormous!
Friggin’ sleep pattern seems to be modified and includes around 7 hrs per night. Odd for me but ok, that’s when muscle builds right?
A LITTLE soreness this morning, but not such that it will deter working out! Lactose is responsible correct? How do I fix it if it becomes an issue?
Energy level is still quite high. Ain’t bitchin’, but it seems that with my age it wouldn’t be like this. Not completely revved up like it was caffeine or anything, nor am I shaky, but would’ve thought that after 9 workouts in 10 days I’d be a LITTLE tired at least.
The “Dan John” videos are of help. Dude makes great sense for us “not so youthful” people! That’s what led me to try goblet squats today. Also want to add some sort of carries. Would like to use dumbbells overhead for those, but may have to do them at home vs. the gym. Don’t know…
Also am wondering if/when I’ll move to deadlfts. I’d assume 9nasty word) that even with a lighter weight, say the bar plus quarters, it’d be beneficial as hell. Thoughts?
Probably a good idea to start that light anyway until I get used to it and have the form correct…
Will need to use the straps or grip things for anything over 135 lbs I’d think. Do NOT want to get this hand so fired up it makes me useless (again)!!
Why is my mind ALWAYS in the gym? Constantly thinking about how to workout better, and nutrition, etc. This brain is HYPER-analytical, probably because I was an EE & actually did electrician type work along with it. Every damn thing has to be reduced from however many possibilities to a simple on/off type choice. EVERY thing…drives my wife nuts that I do this shit out loud too. Tells me “some thoughts you really ought to keep in your head” LOLOL.
There’s this iPhone game I play called “Alto” where you control a skiier going down a slope, do tricks like flips & jumps, and while you’re skiing, you “catch” these friggin llamas going down the slope who are constantly running away. When I play it, she was always asking “Are your llamas running away honey?”
The other day, I get a text from her asking WTH I’d ordered from Amazon, that she got a delivery notice. I hadn’t ordered anything so figured it was her’s. She aggravated me about it via messages till I gave up & went to the patio to retrieve this mystery package.
Open it up & there’s a little stuffed Llama (she named him “Flopsy”) with a gift note saying something to the effect of “Here’s a llama that won’t run away from my baby” LOL What a goof! The girl is a hot mess!
Reminds me, I am taking her to work in a few so GTG. It returns a total of 25 mins/day to me that she’d spend driving alone…plus I know she got there ok, and when she actually gets out. Easier to friggin’ breathe this way, plus it ain’t like I have anything else pressing to do!
Thank ya all for the wonderful input again. I sincerely appreciate your help!!
