post: 15 min LISS cardio

I was going to do a workout in the evening, but life got in the way. Eye exams, groceries, whatever. Such is life.

Aug 15 AM Workout Strongman stuff

warmup: foam rolled IT bands, adductors, piriformis; prone spinal twists; shoulder capsule stretches

Farmers Walks

45 per hand for 40 metres
95 per hand for 20 m, 180 degree turn, 20 m back
130 per hand for 20 m, set it down, pick it back up, back for 20m
220 per hand for 20m

notes: the more experienced dudes went up to 270 per hand, then 330 per hand. I didn’t even try… because I am aware I REALLY need to build up my deadlift. I am a huge pussy, LOL. I am actually quite happy with 220 per hand, considering my thumb is not all-there yet. That is pretty good for me.

Yoke Walk

290 for 20 m, set down, back for 20m
290 for 20m, set down, back for 20m

notes: I could have done more yoke, but it was humid as a rainforest outside and everyone was retreating inside, and I didn’t want to have to disassemble the yoke by myself, so F it

Atlas Stones (5 min rests)

270 for 48″
270 for 48″
270 FAIL

notes: I was alone now so I could time my rests, and not take turns with other people. First time with the 270, not bad, all things considered. Gym PR!

PM Workout

Don’t know why, but I felt like doing back AGAIN. Just felt like it. Apartment gym was so humid that my breath was fogging up the mirrors when I did cardio. I was sweating like a pig. Splashing cold water on my face. It was awesome.
