mbd121's Journal, 18 September 2019

Ate like crap but hit the gym for an awesome Endurance Tuesday.

We had 40 minutes to do 4 rounds of 8/10/12 Reps of Bicep Curls, Squats, OH Press, DL and then a 500m row. So we would either do our 8, then 10, then 12 reps of BC before moving on to squats, or we could do a round of 8 reps of each then 10 reps of each etc... After all 8/10/12 were done, a 500m row. I only got through 2 full rounds and was in the middle of my third. I knew I wasnt going to finish so I switched it up and after I did a round of 8, I started on 12 reps.

The idea is to lift heavy for the low reps and lighter for the heavier ones. I chose to do all each exercise before moving to the next one.

Bicep Curls- 25/20/15 DB, 40# bar for last set of 8.
Squats - Started w/ 26# KB for first round, switched to 40# bar for back squats
OH Press - 25/20/20-15, also used 40# bar for last set of 8
DL - 48#KB first round, 125 bar for 8, 185 bar for last 8

I havent deadlifted a real bar for awhile so I wasnt sure how I would do. The 125 was pretty easy except for trying not to pee. I was nervous to do the 185 since its been awhile but it was good and Im happy that I took it up a notch. Sometimes I think Im pushing myself until I actually push myself and then Im surprised that Im stronger than I think (if that makes sense).

My last PR for DL was 265, but that was several months ago and we havent done much lifting since so Im not sure I can do that anymore but Id love to hit that again. Since we do classes, its hard to do stuff like lifting. Tuesdays are the day that its possible, but people were being ridiculous and pushing themselves too hard (and were getting injured) so we cut back. Anyway, it was a good day.

I admire your diligence. I truly miss the gym😥 I'm trying to get in a groove at home but there are so many distractions.
