I’ve been lurking around this site for a while and finally decided to start a log. Right now I’m lifting with a set up of a barbell squat rack, dbs, and pullup bar in my living room, so my workouts are simple.
Last night I did:
GHR (putting my feet under my couch and having my lifting friend sit on it- you have to get creative)
15lbs added to my bodyweight (db between the legs)
This morning I did the short yoga program in “Yoga: yoga, tantra and meditation in daily life” by Swami Janakanada and a loving kindness meditation. This particular sequence and meditation really open up the hip flexors, make your back feel straighter than it’s ever been, and cut workout recovery time by quite a bit. IMO, lifting and yoga/meditation are the best combination in terms of feeling mentally ontop of life; my patience and happiness are always maximized when I eat right and give myself time to do those things.
In terms of goals, I’d like to hit a 215lb deadlift and a 185lb squat within a few months. I am currently at a 205x3 deadlift and a 175lbx5 squat. I haven’t benched in a while because I don’t have a bench right now, but my push press is at 95lbs.
