Wowsie! My training has been a pain in the asterisk!!** I've been doing lots of pistols to a low bench as well as 1 leg deadlifts. Maybe I'll actually grow some butt to replace the pancake I currently possess. Ha! At any rate, I don't remember ever having this much soreness in my rear. It's an unfamiliar ache. I'm taking it as a sign that I am building up my pistol strength.
Here was today's training:
Clean & Press - 12 kg - 5 x 1, 2, 3, 4 L, R
-As before, I'm doing 1 clean, 1 press, 2 cleans, 2 presses, etc. up to 4 on the left and then I switch and do it on the right.
-I tried to press the bell up very quickly. (I ready Marty's last column about Sandy. I do the EXACT same thing Sandy did - one speed.) Light weight needs to be moved more rapidly than heavy weight.
-I had a very tight left trap. Time to see the chiro.
RPE - 7 on the left and 6 on the right
1 Leg, 1 Arm Bent Knee deadlifts - 24 kg (53 lb) 6 x 5 L, R
-Oh how I wanted to cut these short. My asterisk was killing me. I did Z between ladders and stretches, but nothing would release it.
RPE - 6 (except for the pain)
1 Arm Swings - 20 kg (44 lb) - 5 x 12 L, R - 20 secs between arms
-Not too taxing.
RPE - 5
I just received a phone call inviting me to an event Wednesday night to meet Mike Huckabee. He's going to be endorsing Bob VanderPlaats for governor of Iowa. I want to go so badly. I have a KB class Wedesday and Bible school. I'm directing music again this year, which I love, love, love. I guess I'm not supposed to meet Bob and Mike. Bummer!!
