Today was an off day according to the 5/3/1 template but I decided to go ahead and do some light stuff in the gym this morning because I am a creature of habit.
All the curls were done with Fat Grips
started at 65lbs and worked my way up to 95 in increments of 10lbs for 5 reps
Standing Skull Crushers
worked my way up to 90s x5
Supersetted the following:
Reverse Flies with straps
I hate training arms. It bores me to death. I have neglecting them throughout my entire training career, subscribing to the thinking that chins, dips, bench, and other compound lifts would be sufficient. That clearly has not worked and it is embarrassing. So I figured I would just throw in some low intensity arm days.
Shot some hoops then ran. Was planning on timing my mile but that didn't happen. I suffered a high grade ankle sprain and am in the process of healing it. Anyways, it has taken about 2.5 months to heal and in that time I neglected running. I was up to a 1.5 miles at ~10:30...
Today I was gassed after .5 mile in 3 min. Pretty sad but I hope it comes back quickly.
The gymnast stuff is still getting better. I am going to start doing L-sits on my fingertips instead of my palms so when I become more advanced I can go from L-sit to front planche/handstand.
