Entry #564

Calves were sore yesterday and today from the uphill sprints. Didn't expect that.

ME upper-body

6 x 3     135, 185, 225, 275, 315, 365 lbs.
4 x 1     400 lbs.
> Astonishingly easy. I shot up with the weight on all four sets. No stalls or struggles in the slightest. Seriously contemplated slapping on 500 lbs. at one point.
> My palms were sweaty on the triples of 365, and the load almost slipped out. Took off my sweatshirt for the rest of the sets and dried my hands before each. Grip was ironclad from then on. I won't need chalk for a long time.

Overhead hyper-extensions:
4 x 8     45 lbs.
> Insane stretch in the hamstrings, even moreso than good mornings.

Chop crunches:
4 x 12
> Unzipped my hoodie so there'd be no padding from the blows.

Cable rows:
4 x 8     150 lbs.

Stretched for thirty minutes at night.


  1. Congrats.  You'll be back to your old skull crushing ways in no time.
