Training Log: Entry 2066
Axle strict press
It's so pretty
Notes: Pressing the new axle is a dream. It's well balanced and has knurling marks in the center and on the edges so I can actually get it lined up well each set. I realized that handicaps me slightly for competitions with lesser quality axles, but I'll appreciate what I got. I can feel the slight increase in diameter as well. This was a pretty brutal set, and the final bit of pressing work from "Building the Monolith". Ready to move on to the next challenge.
Notes: Slightly heavier/thicker axle and new protocol (only resting in the bottom position) makes this very challenging. Probably keep this going for next training cycle, but thinking about doing some heavier direct bicep work as well, as this is mostly taxing my forearms.
Miniband pull aparts
Notes: Sets between sets of everything before the dropset. Dropset at very end of the workout. This is still an awesome way to hit the back, and I got more comfortable using some body english today.
General notes: Woke up at 193.3. I'm getting smoother, but not picking up my normal love handles. I'm thinking the cleaner diet and only eating carbs around workout is helping. Deloading (ish) next week, and then a new plan of attack from there.
Prowler (high handles)
Notes: Pretty much non-stop 20x180' lengths. Had some rain last night, so friction was in my favor. Right glute is a little buggy; old injury might be flaring up. Otherwise, ass kicker of a workout. Can't stop sweating.
