Entry #436

DE upper-body

I trained too soon after a big lunch. I was struggling not to throw up between sets.

Speed bag/heavy bag warm-up (bare knuckle)

Clean and press:
6 X 3
135 lbs.
This weight felt very light, but the full-body movement and short rest periods proved taxing on my cardio. Form was excellent. I actually positioned my feet in the standard snatch stance this time, as opposed to parallel.
Note: Deadlifting 135 posed zero pain. It's time to reintroduce the deadlift.

Barbell skullcrushers:
4 X 8
115 lbs.

3 X 8     1 X 5
These were the best pull-ups I've ever done. I felt like a feather on the first set, able to hold each rep at the top with ease, chin well over the bar, before returning to a complete hang.

Hise shrugs:
3 X 15
225 lbs.
And again, this weight felt fine on my knees and back. I won't jump right in at a heavy weight, but this is a good week.

The gym was packed with high school aquaintances that I did well in ignoring, but Jeff was among the horde, and he expressed further interest in "stand-up training", as he put it. He got my number (again). I won't expect much to come out of this, but let it be said.
