Damn It's Cold!!!

After running around getting food and drink for our New Year's even party I decided to bundle up for some Bench Press.

Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 185lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/12 reps, 4 sets/3, 3, 3, 4 reps/275lbs.
Dumbbell Hammer Curls - 2 sets/12 reps/35lbs.
OH Plate Ext - 3 sets/12 reps/45lbs.

Bundle up indeed. The thermometer in my garage showed the temperature at 0 degF or -17 degC. Tomorrow will be better as I'm going to the 17 Wing Strength Club to left on New Year's eve before the food and drinks. Gains!

Deadlifts and Being Boring

I'm currently on leave from work so I'm unusually bored. It's too cold to train in my garage so keeping busy at home isn't an option. Today I cleaned up a bit from the Christmas craziness. I loaded all the cardboard into my van to take to the recycling depot. I also brought my gym bag.

Light Stretching.
Deadlifts - 3 sets/8 reps/70kg, 2 sets/8 reps/120kg, 150kg/6 reps, 180kg/1 rep, 215kg/1 rep.

All sets and reps done with out a belt or straps. I haven't done any good Deadlifts in over a month. Not that this was a good Deadlift. Still loosing weight and feeling / looking good.

Weight Training

I am still battling my inner demons. Because of my bulk I don't feel comfortable swimming. I'm not making much sense lately but that's fine with me because all I've been doing over the last decade is working towards a goal through a sensible formulation.

Today I went to the 17 Wing Strength Club for some fun lifting. The club is in a new location and we have bought some new equipment. Just being in the new club feeds my soul.

Stretching and Leg Swings.
Squats - bar/6 reps, bar+mini bands/6 reps, 8 sets/6 reps/135lbs+mini bands.
Ab Sling Knee Ups - 8 sets/12 reps.
Bench Press - 5 sets/6 reps/135lbs+mini bands.

I took my time and enjoyed the several hours spent "playing" with the weights.
