2017-11-03 training log

About the most exciting thing from today was the gym lost power. The new gym is located in a business “park” that’s mostly under construction. One of the buildings I guess was going to get power hooked up to the city grid, so Austin Energy opted to cut power to the whole plaza. So we lost power for about 20 minutes. We knew about it, but they did it 30 minutes earlier than expected. 🙂 But hey, the iron still works and we just kept lifting – tho it was weird to not hear music.

But that’s the thing – today’s workout was just solid.

I changed BB curls to more straight sets, trying to be strict and focusing on biceps contraction to get me there. I had some odd sensations because of my pain issues, but whenever I have these THESE feel like a good pain. Where something needs to get activiated, get worked, etc. to help strengthen the weak link that’s causing the pain.

Close-grips went solid — upped the weight and am happy where this is going.

Skull crushers may need to go, not sure. My elbows have been a wee annoyed, but I may just drop the weight and go up to 15 reps.

And the cable work is just to help with the pump. But note, I have dropped the drop sets. Not about that right now.

Anyways, today, like the rest of this past week, has been generally good. I have things mostly where they need to be, and minor adjustments will be made for next week.

So far, so good.
