Strength Tuesday – 09/20/11
I’ve been doing a shit-ton of writing lately. And when I write for hours at a time, I disconnect from the real world in a way that’s hard to describe. When ti’s flowing, it’s among the best feelings ever and time disappears. But when I disengage from the computer, I feel wobbly and wired, almost like the sensation of drinking too much caffeine in an effort to stave off exhaustion. I didn’t imbibe any coffee, nor was I really exhausted, but I was… overwrought last night. And happy to be doing anything other than sitting at the dining table typing, I stayed up too late.
However, it paid off because except for the last three recipes, the text of Well Fed is finished. Also, I lifted heavy things this morning. Not too bad.
10 back squat @ 60-70%, 95#
5 partner deadhang pullups
5 Romanian DL, 75#
10 reverse crunch (elbows to knees)
15 tic-tacs, 10# med ball
Um, 10 back squats is no walk in the park, even at only 65% and pullups… whatever. Totally on top of my nemesis list.
I’m still doing my physical therapy to rehab my right shoulder, so the pushups were veeeeeeeeerrrrry slow and uncomfortable, but not painful in the “I should really stop right now” way. The reverse crunches on the floor were supposed to mimic elbows-to-knees on the bar. My crunches were a totally accurate representation of the way I do elbows-to-knees because I couldn’t get the two body parts to touch on the damn floor, either.
Did you workout today? Tell us all about it, please.
