Rotator Cuff/Band Pull Apart
Incline DBBP/Barbell Row
10x20kg/3x60kg + 5x40kg -- Attempted 60kg and the weight was definitely too heavy for me to do anything useful with it. Sure, I could get the bar from the floor to my torso, but don't let that fool you into thinking my reps at that weight added any value to my training.
Long day. From about 10am-4pm I was out getting in touch with nature or something. After NTE the other week, a few of us got together for what was specifically termed the "post NTE thing." This involved cooking over a wood-fire (putting my totally legit Masters in Barbecuology to good use), lengthy, in-depth theological discussions, and about 2hr45min of bush walking/mountain climbing, occasionally broken up to look at Aboriginal paintings and stone surfaces or kill cain toads. At about 5pm, I finally made it to the gym, where it was so hot that I think I was suffering mild heat exhaustion right up until the sun went down.
3x6x100kg -- What I believe was heat exhaustion meant that every time I walked up to the bar to start a set, I felt no more ready for it than I had felt at the moment of re-racking the previous set.
1x170kg -- And then, after this set, the sun made its may over the horizon. Suddenly, in time for my next set, I was alive-awake-alert-enthusiastic, instead of the zombie I had been for the previous 90min.
4+1x150kg -- I did my first 4 reps, and then my chalk failed due to too much sweat, and the bar was like: "lol no, I don't do this whole breaking off the floor thing." So I rechalked and then got right back into it for the last rep.
