I Like the SSB- nice to get one at home and nice work

nice pressing too.

there was a good box squat there too- if you want to turn it into a speed squat day

Last workout before vacation

Dead lifts worked up to 415x6
1 arm db swings 2x15
Kroc Rows 2x25
Pull downs 3x12
Seated Band Leg Curls 3x15
Spread Eagle Situps-wt behind head 3x10

I’m totally fried, 4 days straight this week (I usually take at least 1-2 days off during 4 training sessions. I really wanted to get all my lifting in before I left. Won’t do this again, my dead lifts felt like 500lbs. Planning on lots of swimming, body weight work, and running over the next 5 days. I’m packing some bands as well.

Adios for a few days Amigos!

Like the new log title, so easy to find you.

Wheres the pics/vids of the 3 of you? I only have one more log to search, ha!

Enjoy Mexico

We’ll take video at the next join up…which will be a squat session. Matty will squat 4 plates ATG at that one.

Matty wil squat it for a double
nice session - and have a good trip

Started every day in Mexico with a 3 mile barefoot sand run followed by serious band work. sand kills calves!!I packed my orange bands and wrestled with them everyday.

Lots of fun, lots of sun…now back to reality!

Bench Day

Reverse Band Bp…worked up to a heavy triple (these took a little life out of me)
Close Grip Bp 3x3
Dips 45lbs x15 x13
Face Pulls 3x15
Push downs 5x20
1 Arm Curls 3x8

Going to try to do weights every other day and work conditioning (running, hills, prowler) on days off.

Onward and upward!

Love the pic, looks/sounds like you had an amazing time!

3 mile run this morning…taking it easy as tomorrow is squat day. Steamy 56 degrees at 5AM in NYC this morning!!

Light band work during conference calls makes for strong meetings!

Friday

Pull ups 1x21

Squats
Worked up to 75%x2 for 3 sets

SSB paused squats

Really felt rust on squats but plowed through. I’ve been restoring my clean diet one meal at a time this week. So as of today I’m back on a “food as fuel” approach to what I’m eating. it was fun while it lasted.

I think moving my home gym into my garage soon. I have the luxury of having an extra space and want some more room to train in. During the winter it will build character as its unheated!

Love the pic! Is that your wife? you’re a lucky man!

Tuesday benching moment of clarity

After doing the paused bench I did my usual “turn on the video camera and don’t think about reps” and hit 12 with really tucked elbows and stayed tight through the whole movement. I’m going to bring my grip in on all my benching and see if it works out for me.

225x12?! GAH!
