Training Log: Entry 2304
(5) Mat Pulls
1x366 (mixed grip)
1x456 (mixed grip)
10x561 (straps, touch and go, rest pause)
10x471 (straps, deadstop)
25 second DOH hold 276
Notes: This went much better than expected. Grip held up better, and I found reserves I didn't know I had. Also ended up blowing out a ton of blood vessels in my both shoulders. Good to be able to bring that kind of intensity to an AM workout.
GHR sit-up w/25lb plate behind head
Buffalo Bar Squats
RESTPAUSE (15 deep breaths between sets)
Notes: Felt good to nail those 10 reps of 370, but it took just about everything out of me. I seriously contemplated hanging up the rest of the workout for a hot second there, but pushed through. Once I did it again at 280, I had to take longer than 15 breaths between sets, because I was trying my hardest not to vomit. I might move up to 410 next workout and try to get the reps back up from there.
Left knee still didn't want to play this morning, but after enough warm-ups it didn't bother me. I'm wondering of my new ACL just got too stiff in the cold weather, and I needed to just warm it up and stretch it out. The knee is still a little tight, but manageable. The pain is migrating from the surgical site to the top of the knee cap, which I think is a good sign. This might be that arthritis they told me I would get, or something completely unrelated, but right now, I'm just dealing with pain, not dysfunction. If that changes, I might get it looked it.
General notes: Woke up at 196.6 this morning. That said, I had to stop midway through warm-ups to attend to some colon issues, so I imagine I was carrying some deadweight there. I might be tabling the run this week for some other conditioning, because that might be good for the knee.
