Thursday Deadlifts and swipes with a new partner.
Glenn joined me for training today and all of a sudden Thursday's workout didn't suck anymore:) Glenn is land Old School Real Deal guy and he brings more to the training table than he takes and that's awesome. He knows what it means to really train and also what it means to be a real training partner.
No education needed he's right there at full speed from the get. Nice.
The hardest part of training with him will be keeping the brakes on him AND on myself as we are both broke pretty badly in the body but the brain still says GO. We have to hold each other back at the same time as we edge forward toward restoring ourselves.
I told him my goal was to train as hard as I could and not feel anything the next day. He understands a little but he'll get it.
Especially since he deadlifted for the first time in ten plus years ago and he has a 755 deadlift in Competition ( 3 lift meet too) to his credit and the pull was his best lift. He did real well today( holding himself back) but we'll see how he feels tomorrow.
Me too :))
Long ass day with lots of demonstrating.
6-7 am client no show so
6o minute full stretchout.
Shoulder has been perfect of late ever since I learned how to get that bicep tendon back in place with the band distaction. SO nice
worked a lot on splits to all three sides plus brettzells, strap hamstriing stretches and foot work.
One arm KB deadlift
28 jg x3/3
32 kg x3/3
36 kg x3/3
40 kg x 3/3
135 x 3
185 ( woo hoo big ass jump ,lol) x3
205 x 2
220 x 1 x 4 singles.
These felt better than ever. really took my time locking in and getting myself wedged under the bar. Re found my lat connection on the deads again and that made aa big difference. It's been so long and I have used every deadlift style known to man at least 3 times . No joke.
Two clubbell swipes
4 sets of 20 with 15's
these were the strongest I have been in eons on these. Finally the grip wasn't smoked.I was just strong today.
16 kg x 100 feet each arm
75 feet x first set
100 feet on second
did each arm in the rack walk then did the spider walks . repeated this twice. not easy but better than I remembered.
Black band triceps extensions
4 sets of 20 fast pace
handstands on floor
4 sets of 10 seconds
these were solid!
