    Sumo Deads
    245lbs for 8x3 (<60 sec)

    Romanian DB Deads
    90lb DBs for 5x5 (45 sec)

    2 Kettlebell circuits
    Mobility + kettlebells

    Bands


    I was strapped during the romanian and the sumos....hmm. They felt tight, but no pain, no residual pain, no odd nerve shit down the legs. I guess that means it was a success, but I was nervous nonetheless. I rested a bit more so that I can not be so winded during the kettlebells. It worked, but only by so much. I am on beta blockers and have been for half a year, but I take a half a pill usually. Yesterday I took the whole pill and also, I didnt drink or spend money. I ate pretty well, maybe less calories than usual, but they were GOOD calories. My heart rate today wasnt as high as usual, which is what these pills do, but its deceiving. I feel like I am working out hard...and Im not. It sucks, and is why I take half.
    Speaking of calories, Ive not gotten a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight in...maybe over a year. Shit, maybe more. Is that why I get hurt routinely?

    Weighted chins
    55lbs for 5x5 (75 sec; 1st rep wasnt strapped)

    Latpulldowns
    150lbs for 4x8 (1 min; eccentric reps)

    Dropsets...
    Standing OH DB Press
    55lb, 50lb, 45lb DBs for 6 reps each
    1 min
    45, 50, 55 for 5 reps each
    1 min
    then back down like before

    10 sprints


    My elbow is starting to hurt again and its an ache that happens after the pulls. Thats why i did those tiring eccentrics. I did some drop sets that killed me but cured my boredom.
    I got to the stadium and what I do is I walk the perimeter of the inside portion, meaning the steps outside. I get to the center of the sun, then either go up each flight or 1 flight for 10 times. Today, a coach apparently asked me to walk around his students. I look and thought.....there are like 5 of them and they are 30 feet apart. I asked him if he was serious.

    Guess he didnt read up on covid and UV light, not to mention the 6 feet requirement.

    Romanian BB Deads
    245lbs for 5x5 (full recovery; 1st 3 sets staggered grip)

    Romanian/SLDL w dbs
    90lb dbs for 4x6 (1 min; strapped)

    Single Legged DB RDLs
    40lb DB for 2x5, each side
    ~ss~
    Unilateral Farmer walks
    4xlength for floor ( no rest)

    Grip holds
    90lb DBs for 30s, 26s, 24s (yikes)

    bands


    My QL is extremely tight. I did some squat walks 2 days ago and I remember getting bad cramps that I mostly just worked through. Well, I paid for it. I almost didnt come to the gym, I was that tight. However, the more I move, the more it gets better, so I used it to my advantage and attempted some deads.
    245lbs aint great, but its better than what ive been doing, so I like it. I took a chance and didnt go down on the DBs and, again, I was delighted. My grip is screwed though. Funny how far it drops when there is no more heavy deads.

    Standing OH BB Press
    185lbs for 3x3 (full)

    Weighted Chins
    35lbs for 5x5 (1 min?)

    Drop set of OH presses, like last time, but today it was 60lb, 55lb, then 50lb DBs for 5 reps each, 3 sets, 1 min rest

    2 Kettlebell circuits
    Dead hangs


    Vid of the 185lb lift is in my IG and it was hard, yes, I wouldve done more. OH presses are finicky. I know of how vulnerable the shoulders are in when doing this and it takes just 1 slip up.
    That said, I went down with the pulls. My elbow didnt hurt...then I did the KBs. Then it did.

    I just got off disability for a twisted lower back.
    Today I trained arms hard.
    If felt so damn good I almost shed a tear.
    I was doing light weight and reps but way different.

    No knee pain! The QL is still there and yes, I shouldve stretched, but I was focusing on the rain, since I ride a motorcycle.

    Decline bench

    Some awesome HIIT coupled with runs x 2 (20 min)

    9 stadium sprints
    situps

    Baked


    So. Had a panic attack or anxiety or whatever. I was fucked. I was on Nitraflex, not a full scoop, and Ive done it before, with LESS calories. It maybe cuz of this new medicine I am on or I drank it too fast. I dont know. I had to use more rests than wanted and honestly, at one point, I got mad and went nuts. I had a good workout, a great one, but this feeling just fucked me.
    On the flip side, when I was 'going nuts,' I did some KB work that had some treadmill sprints...which were hardly sprints. My god was it hard..but fantastic!
    So on my way to the stadium, I started feeling it again! God dammit. Did the runs, felt fine, laid out to get some sun, and it came back. Nothing now, but who knows when Ill get it again.

    Last night I was up til 4 because it was my first night bouncing in decades. Back was killing me from all the standing and not moving. A bit nervous about tonight. I woke up at 943am. No alcohol last night, so limited sober sleep. That said, I thought, fuck..I need a day off from the gym. But...Im gonna stay home and play video games for 12 hours? That will hurt my back even more, so Im gonna go do a bodybuilder quad day.
    And.....my back hurt here and there, sometimes scaring me, but I feel better now than I did when I woke up and much better than last night.
    No pussy to jerk off to though.

    HIIT x 2
    Dead hangs
    Stadium shit


    Day after a rest day from a trip and, once again, the Nitraflex had me wiggin. Didnt finish it this time and thank god cuz my workouts were great.
    Weighted Dips were easy. Can go up. Used straps to seat my wrists on...
    Everything else was volume heavy and because a machine was taken up, I tried to do DB Rows, under handed. Mannnnn, it feels weird. Even with straps, I still couldnt feel like I was getting it right. That said, It actually killed my biceps.
    Did the whole running on the treadmills within KB work and again, it killed. Then I topped it off with 4 sprints and some LISS at the stadium.
