Rings, Zercher DL

Rings: StC + FL x 1

Zercher DL: 185 x 2, 2, 2 - got dizzy on second rep of each set but progressively less so.  First rep of third set, got nice and tight in arm curl and that rep felt the best of the day.  Last time was 175 x 3, 185 x 3, so today is progress, and we'll aim for 185 x 3 reps x 2 sets next time or soon.

Rings, Zercher DL, OHP

Today, Tuesday:

Lots of walking - 5 stops, out for close to 2 hours

Rings: StC + FL x 1

Zercher DL: 175 x 3, 145 x 1 (my wife's DL bar), 185 x 3 - hips back seems to be the secret to this lift, both during setup and as you lower it.  185 is yet another PR triple

break

OHP: 75 lb. x 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5 - 23 reps in 6 sets.  Goal will be 24 reps in 5 sets next time.

Rings, 1APU, DL Sumo

Today, Monday

short walk

Rings: StC + FL x 1

1APU @ 10" x 2R/L, 3R/L

DL: Sumo, all double overhand: 245 x 2, 265 x 8, 4, 3 - first reps still worse than later, but getting better as I start to figure this out.

No more time - tomorrow, Zercher DL, I hope

Rings, 1APU, DL

Yesterday, too busy - no exercise

Today, Friday, nice warmup of Cossack sequence and windmills while teaching

Later

Rings: StC x 1 - deep, long hang, skipped the FL

1APU @ 10" x 2R/L, x1R/L

DL: Sumo, 245 lbs x 8 - took a slightly more turned-out stance, felt great, x 8 again, both double overhand.  No knee discomfort first set but set up very carefully.  Slight knee discomfort second set, reset right foot in middle and solved that.

Rings, Zercher DL, Sumo DL

A little run at the end of the breathing walk today again

Rings: StC + FL x 1

Zercher DL: 165 x 3, 175 x 3 - both those are PR triples

Sumo DL: 225 x 8 double over - these are getting easier _fast_.  For both these kinds of DL, I need just a little more turnout than I think when I start, and especially on the right foot, I think.

GS, DL Sumo

Today, Tuesday:

walk

Goblet Squat (GS): 24 kg x 3, 32 kg x 3

DL:

Sumo @ 175 x 4
Sumo @ 225 x 4, 5 - got better as they went.  I tend to not want to sit back and I need to more.  Still have to try to figure out the wedge.
