2017-09-12 training log

Felt stiff this morning. Feeling better overall due to the stretching and body work I’m doing — twisting the spine is huge. I mean, most of the movements and work I do has no twisting, and even much of my life has no twisting. It stands to reason I’d get stiff and inflexible along those lines. So working in more of those movements as I stretch and roll? It’s been wonderful.

Anyways, the work-up was nothing of note. Keeping tight, slow descent, really working to keep the bar centered over mid-foot. I did up the top-weight 5# just because. And on the AMRAP I probably could have eeked out a 15th but I felt better to just leave it. This will make me repeat the whole thing next week, and next week I want overall performance to be better. THEN I can up the weight across the board. One interesting thing is I paused between each AMRAP rep just to breathe — pacing. Well, that actually stressed me differently, because I found my back tiring out much sooner because it just had more time under tension, vs. repping it out. Interesting observation.

Stiff-legs are fine; finally hitting a weight/rep that’s taxing me.

Lunges. I hate them. 🙂
