Decided to approach my training in a different way. I wont be hitting the gym to feel competitive for a while. I will just go now to feel better, build some muscle, improve my conditioning. Still weights, still heavy weights, still strongman… I just don’t have goals beyond “go heavier”. At least until my personal life calms down a bit.

Early morning office workout. Short rests, light weights, break a sweat.

warmup: slow neg side raises, Cuban presses, one arm shrugs

Overhead Press (cambered bar, clean from the floor once, no sleeves, no wraps)

*keep rests at 60 seconds*
110 x 5

notes: clean reps, good form, push my head through, squeeze my butt, focus on all my cues. 60 second rests and 10 sets had me sweating! I will count this as cardio

post: 15 min LISS

After work, I went for another massage. Hit my hips, glutes, low back, then upper back, traps, neck, shoulders. Deep tissue, hurt like hell. Actually I hate deep tissue on my neck, it makes me paranoid like I wanna fight someone… its threatening somehow. But I dealt with it and got through it. Feelin good right now.
