Work was hectic, no time for a morning workout. I set out to do a 2 a day system, thinking that summer would be quiet enough that I could focus on my gains. As it turns out, for the past 5 weeks, the work environment has not been entirely supportive of this. I am going to go back to the drawing board this weekend and come up with a routine that fits my life, as opposed to making my life fit the routine. Still, I gave it a go for 2 and a half months, so it was a good effort. I will think on this.

PM Workout Strongman stuff

130 x 1
140 x 1
150 x 1
160 x 1
160 x 1
170 x 1
180 x 1

notes: just wanted to work my way up slowly and get in lots of practice on my technique. I wasn’t happy with my first go at 160 so I did a second set and it felt smooth, so I kept going. 180 was a grind to lockout, so I stopped there.

Keg Press (90 sec rests)

130 x 2
130 x 2
130 x FAIL
130 x 2
