These entries will record how I (48 yrs, 185 cm, 90 kgs) am incorporating some of What I Did on My Summer Vacation into a revision of my earlier Lunch-hour Log, starting with the weights down pretty much across the board as I work on new form in squats (low down), bench press (wider grip) and deadlift (better set-up and floor break). After six weeks I plan on checking my maxes.

2 x 60 x 12, 1 x 100 x 8, 3 x 117.5 x 5 reps
2 x 75 x 6,5 reps
2 x 10 reps (standing)
Weighted incline crunch
2 x 10 kgs x 7,6 reps
Two warm-up sets cleaned and squatted while waiting for the squat cage rack, which I am not working in anyway because the saftety bars are too high for how I am squatting now. I don’t like having to take the extra steps to get out but it is not much weight. Putting my towel in front of the mirror takes the reflection out of the feedback picture.
Though having gotten up on my feet with the ab wheel, I am still using the wall as a limit as I increase extension. The crunches then make a satisfying complement to the wheel work that seems to go way deep down yonder in the belly.
