I am behind on posting my workouts. So here it is... all business.
I did some snatches with my class tonight. We snatched on the minute...
6/6 X4 sets = 96 points
6/6 X 8 sets = 288 points
Grand Total = 3370
Monday night is squat night for me and Maura. I am starting a new cycle. Because I didn't get to really test my 1RM on the squat I am stuck with 235lbs. Don't get me wrong... I am happy with 235, but I fee like I have more in me, just not on Friday.
~I started my new cycle at 165lbs, which is 70% of 235lbs. This time 165 felt much easier than last cycle. I am fine with starting out here.
~ I asked a few guys around the gym about box squats. I looked at some You Tube videos. I posted a video for your amusement, and for Rif's feedback...
KB Front Squats
~Last of all Maura and I goofed around with the Ham-Glut Machine.... I have tried to like this machine before, but it is scary... Not because you are lowering yourself face first toward the ground, but because it is a lot of tension on your hammies. YIKES!
Yesterday was Bench Press day. It was also Yoga day as well as cooking and cleaning day.
I hit Lisa's yoga class at 10am for some Ashtanga Yoga Asana. I love Lisa's classes. She moves me faster than I move myself. Plus, she has me doing asana that I don't always practice on my own. I love going to class! God help me if I ever win the lottery... I would go to class all the time.
After grocery shopping and a quick snack I met up with Maura at The Press for bench press. Maura's favorite day!
~I panicked on 115, it didn't go very far. However 110lbs moved pretty easily. weird. In the world of Z I would say I have serious startle reflex... I just assume the movement will hurt and I panic every time.
8 reps X 3 sets
After that I went home and did some cooking for the week and a little cleaning. What a great way to spend a Sunday!
