April Week 2 of 4

Sun April 11

Horizonal Pull seated row machine #12-13-14-15-16x10

* i was solo at the gym 5am on a sunday. after the squats, i did a circuit style routine alternating push/pull using machines. they are right next to each other. sets of 10 with medium heavy weights. #18 is full stack. this is the roc-it series from hoist. love using these.

11:00am
Squats 315-405-495 
Vertical Pull seated lat pulldown machine #11-11x10
Horizonal Push seated chest press machine #14-15-16x5, #14x10
Vertical Push seated shoulder press machine #10-11-12x10
Horizonal Pull seated row machine #14-15-16-17-18x10

* weekend mornings are at 24hr fitness because its the only one open at 5am. the lunch is at crunch fitness because its a lot closer to my place. they have the same hoist machine so i did the same routine with more volumes. i still have to figure out how to move up on resistance on the lat pulldown without straining either my back or my legs. i'm getting pulled up with resistances in the stack 12+

2 hours BJJ. Was going to train later in the day but the body was wrecked.

10/04/2021

Spent the day watching my wife at a crossfit comp. Pretty cool. She PR'd her deadlift with 3 reps at 110kg. Was also good to see others compete. One poor guy hit 180 for 3 twice but the 5's kept falling off the end of the bar cause there was no room for collars. Damn beast!

I've missed two sessions this week and next week is lightwer volume but a chance to test some 4RMs. Looking forward to that.

Also, have canned the coaching business. The cert structure had changed which meant a transition from online coaching to more in person stuff. Hard for me to do whilst working full time and spending time with the family. Not to mention my own training. I've been putting it off for a while and it's kind of a relief. I've got so much I want to accomplish personally and I can now get back to focusing on that.
