Workout 08/31/2014: 2 PRs at the Gym

I sit here typing this very tired, but also very happy. I went to the gym early this afternoon, spent a good hour and a half there from warm up to cool down stretches. I then went home and did another hour and a half or so of yard work. Pushed my body hard and I’m holding my head up with a smile for that, I came away from the gym with TWO personal records!

I am still coughing a little bit from whatever the heck is going on with my allergies, however I decided that I needed to push myself a bit and get the job done at the gym. I substituted my mile run, however, with combatives training. Just a different kind of “wind” needed for that.

Today’s workout was as follows:

Dynamic Warmup: 10min

Deadlifts:  45lbs (bar) x 10 x 1, 95lbs x 5 x 1, 115lbs x 5 x 1, 135lbs x 5 x 1, 145lbs x 5 x 1, 155lbs x 5 x 1 (PR!)

Overhead Press:  45lbs x 5 x 1, 55lbs x 5 x 1, 65lbs x 5 x 1, 75lbs x 5 x 1, 85lbs x 5 x 1 (PR!)

Chin Ups / Negative Chins:  5/0, 3/2, 2/3, 1/4, 0/5

Combatives Training w/the heavy bag: approx 20 min.

Cool Down Stretches: 10min
