Rested yesterday. I switched my gym membership to the 2x/week plan. I’ve only been to the gym more than that 2-3 times since the program switch, which is disappointing. I’m not going to risk injury and overtraining though; I’m over those years. I’ve still been working out 5 days a week on average, but making use of my garage. I have to admit, getting back an extra hour+ in the day (without prep, travel, and social time) is a nice bonus. My cardio has been feeling good, so I’ll continue what I’m doing. I think the lower volume is helping a lot.
Out in the garage for a workout before a late lunch.
5:00 Airdyne – 1.51 miles
Strength – Back Squat
I think I forgot how to squat. Felt fine, but I can tell I’m hesitant with each rep.
- 10 Renegade Man Makers (35# DBs)
- 20 GHD Sit-ups (parallel)
Been a long time since doing man makers. If you’ve never done them, it’s a push-up on the dumbbells, a row with each arm in the plank position (helps to keep wide feet), jump/step feet up to hands, clean, and shoulder to overhead. I wasn’t fast with them, but never stopped and did all sets of sit-ups unbroken too. Finished in 12:54.
