2017-12-12 training log

My head is elsewhere this morning (all good, just weighty). So today was just doing the work. RepCount app tells me it’s time for another set? Do the set and be in that moment doing it. Then rest and my mind can wander if it has to. Just do the work as laid out.

And the session actually went pretty well. Weights are up, reps are up (2/fail), volume is WAY up. So things chugged along pretty nicely and productively. I opted to drop a few warm-up sets where I really didn’t need them. Like I originally did warm-ups on the leg press, but it’s only because I hadn’t used the leg press at the new gym and needed to get a feel for it (the sled is kinda light compared to the old gym, some slightly different mechanics, but it’s a leg press is a leg press is a leg press). So I really don’t need them any more — pretty warm from squats.

Fun thing about calf raises? Really focusing on the stretch at the bottom, and I can tell my calves are improving in flexibility, which is carrying over to some improved relaxness and comfort in the sole of my foot. This is a good thing. Calf work is kinda boring, but this makes me feel like I should work in at least a few sets always just for this benefit.

Anyways… onwards.
