Training Log: Entry 1995
EARLY AM TRAINING
Blast strap fallouts
Seated band good mornings (average band)
Notes: Had more time to train today, broke my session up and really hammered the core. The seated band good mornings aren't terrible. Not a whole lot of stimulus, but better than nothing. That said, later in the day, I went over to my reverse hyper and was able to perform the movement without any resistance with no issues, so I may just hit those next time.
Neck harness 45lbs
Notes: Might as well start pushing this.
LATER AM TRAINING
Single leg squat w/45lbs right leg, seated squat visualization/flex with left
1x10 +1x10 without weight
Notes: Held a kettlebell in my right hand for the single leg squats to add some resistance. It ended up being pretty gnarly, especially with the drop set at the end. In the more distant future, I see myself doing this with the safety squat bar, but the farmer's handle might work as well as a loading implement. For the visualization, I hit 20 reps and then held the contraction on the last one for 10 seconds.
Standing band leg curls (light, right leg)/hamstring flex left leg
Notes: Held contraction for 10 seconds on last rep of last set for flex.
Seated band leg extensions (light, right leg)/quad flex left leg
Notes: Held contraction for 15 seconds on last rep of last set of flex.
General notes: Woke up at 184.4. Ate a ton yesterday, had some GI issues. Had a poptart after the second workout this morning and it was glorious. Don't plan to make that a habit, but I want to start experimenting with higher carbs immediately post workout.
Captains of Crush Grippers
1,2,3,1,2,1,1,2 (odd wave pattern)
31 second hold
Notes: Trying to vary things a little more, as it seems sticking with the same routine on these tends to burn out my forearms and hands.
