Quick and dirty pr
A Rob Zombie inspired workout today.
We had a delivery of new flooring coming to Girya today right at Tracy and my workout time so I figured I had to get in my presses at 9 am when I had a cancellation. My 8 am client ran late and I was just not feeling it; I hate rushing my training,especially when it's not my normal training time.
But Tracy came in from one of her three or four scheduled workouts today ( on her way to Bikrams) and I knew I had to get something on the books. I had done some pre emptive presses tuesday in case this didnt work out but I had the time so I got something done.
Didn't expect to feel so strong , much less get a pr. but there it was. As my tag line pn my blog says, you have to lay in wait for it, patiently, and be ready to grab when Grace lays in down in front of you.
There it was in front of me so I picked it up.
Strong feels so good.
Clean and press
16 lkg x5/5
20 kg x5/5
24 kg x3/3
28 kg x1/1
I had no idea where my strength would be with the 28 today when I started, that's why I choose singles to begin with. Really I would have been ok with doing 8-10 sets of 1/1 today. no lie. But after each set I said to myself,'self, that was easy. lets do another rep on the next set'.
I had no expectations of doing fives, as the most I have ever done with this weight was triples and that was just a few weeks ago. So when the triple went up so fast I tried fours and they went the same way,fast strong and easy. I thought abut stopping there but I was feeling solid so I went for the fives and they rocked. Nice, a real PR. Gotta love those.
5 sets of 15 seconds
Started against the wall and tapped off to a free handstand. with my pressing strength up these are feeling very solid.
Datsit. 30 minutes, quick and dirty.
