52 and 68 kg One Arm Swings 5 x 5/5 ea, barbell hacks, wt pushups, arm casts, side raises

 This thing brought me some concern last night. I was getting some "taps on the head' via my back just sitting around and that gave me pause. I've had NO back issues in forever and wondered what was setting this off.
I realize it was the pistols. and looking back on my blog confirmed this. That's why I stopped doing them last time.

"The only thing harder than figuring it out is remembering to do it"

As soon as I realized what was going on my back eased. swear to god.
This has happened before, hence the 'tap on the head" instead of the 2 x 4 :)

I decided to balance the loads more than last time with this bell. 5 sets each with the 52 then the 68. last time it was 10 sets then 2 sets . this should save more energy for that monster but still let me warmup enough

It did

One arm swings
16 kg x 5/5 x 2
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5
28 kg x 5x5
32 kg x 5/5
36 kg x 5/5
40 kg x 5/5
44 kg x 5/5
52 kg x 5/5 x 5
68 kg x 5/5  x5

52 kg = 5750 lbs
68 kg = 7500 lbs
total 13,250 lb tonnage

not bad for such low reps.

Barbell hacks
65 x 8
85 x8
105 x 8
115 x 8
125 x 8
130 x 8

these have been working great. don't get greedy. I will drop ANY exercise that I find  messes my back up.NOTHING is worth that!

Wt pushups
bw x 10
45 x 10 x  3


25 lbs x 8/8 x 4 sets

my standing dynamic triceps extension/pullover work

love these

side laterals
3 x 12 with 15

BW 166.2
BF 11.4
W 57.3

small serving of instaketones yesterday. should have had them earlier. ate the nuts and had an extra coffee so a small serving of the ketones but it messed with the experiment a bit.
definitely seem more muscular of late and more defined.
will see
going to use a serving of them before the ruck tomorrow
