    I made cardio mistake again... I didn't go too crazy yesterday but still didn't feel fully recovered today, so easy-peasy leg day. I decided to do Sumo DLs instead of RDLs - I don't them very often - checked my logs - 15 times in two years, not my thing really...

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭j@utis


    I have balance troubles when it comes to single leg exercises. I probably don't use enough weight to give my legs something to think about and also holding 15+kg dumbbells my arms is another challenge...

    Another just meh workout - I'm still tired after busy weekend - loads of gardening and other work around the house, and other outdoor pleasures in good weather. Also, I'm in calorie deficit this week in a bid to lose some weight, so that doesn't help either - I have body comp scan on saturday. I had one exactly a year ago, it'll be interesting to see the change in muscle mass.
    SS: superset, it's easy to supper set in Pull-Push routine, I like that.

    Today morning I went in with the "plan" to do some light work - more reps with less weight - something like 70% DL for reps, it sounds easy... on papper... but I rather do 12x1 @100%, what a torture, cursed every set.

    I think it depends of the machine - the weight might vary quite a lot. It's chest fly machine but if you sit the facing the other way, it becomes rear delt fly.

    I forgot to mention my body composition scan last Saturday. So, in one year's time I've gained 1.8kg of muscle YEAY! and... 2.8kg of fat SH1TE! They say women can gain ~2kg of muscle in 2nd year of training which about right but I'm not happy with +3.2% of body fat comparing to last year, I have to loose couple of kilos somehow... it's hard because I love my food so much :D

    Today I busted my left hamstring (again) while doing Cable pull throughs, nothing heavy, but one wrong twist and there you have it. I should be doing more stretching and more foam rolling, and more foam rolling and more stretching, you know all that boring stuff... RDLs and lunges had to be *cancelled*, did a few upper body pull exercises and called it day.

    My left leg was giving me loads of trouble today. It felt fine (almost) when I got to the gym, but I managed to aggravate the pain with stretching and foam rolling. I can't pin point what's wrong with it, it's not the hamstring itself, I can do DLs and leg curls no problem. I feel pain behind the knee which is going up when I do straight leg DL and movements similar to it, e.g. prowler push, high knees etc.
    Other than that I felt very good today, 90kg DL felt really easy, THE FORCE is back with me ROARRrrr!!! so bring it on, chalk is on the way too, yeay get in there baby!

    I didn't do much of warm up today - didn't want to annoy my silly leg, hence so many sets [of 1] of DL. I counted 15mins of cycling to the gym as my warm up. Very happy with new PR, I forgive myself for rounded back, PRs are never pretty, at least mine aren't :D

    Woohoo bench pr \o/


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭j@utis


    Yeap, BP is very slow to progress: I was pressing 50.5kg this time last year, so 11kg of gainz is not bad! I was half-way up with my BW on the bar but couldn't get past sticking point. Next month maybe.
