Weight training yesterday + yard work; More weights today + cardio.

45 pound plateIf you missed yesterday’s blog, I talked about the changes I’m making to my weight training program to better fit my current athletic goals.

Yesterday morning I did 5×5 deadlifts, but I kept the weight moderate because my hips and lower back are still feeling a little tweaked. After the deadlifts I did a set of burnout (to failure) wide-grip body weight pull-ups. Done. It felt really weird doing such a low-volume workout, but I kind of liked the change.

I never wear gloves when I lift (and haven’t since the very early days of my transformation), but yesterday I had to wear them. The blisters on my hands from Saturday’s trail work day are really bad. In fact, one of them popped open while I was lifting yesterday and started bleeding. Pretty painful.

After my workout I decided to take a half day off from work, and I did about 5 hours of yard work. We’ve had a very mild winter so far this year (hope that continues!) and things really needed some attention out there.

All in all a very active and productive day.

I’ve got a busy day ahead, and I’ll be pressed for time. I always make time to train, though! This morning I’m going to get in a quick weight training workout, and over my lunch hour I’ll be heading back into the gym for an hour of misery in my bike torture chamber.

Happy Friday!
