Getting It Done.

As far as training goes this week, I just decided to follow my own advice (surprise!)--just do something for 10-15 minutes each day.

Monday, I did 15 minutes of bodyweight chins and parallel dips descending ladders. I got 46 reps of each: (5,4,3,2,1) x3; 1 = 46.

Tuesday, I snatched the 32kg KB for 12 minutes, 30 seconds on, and 30 seconds off, alternating between L and R hands. This broke a good sweat. Surprised me really.

Today, I went to the platform and did some Presses and some Deadlifts, with a clean grip.

Presses: work upto 80kg for 5 reps, then rest 60s, 70/5, rest 60s, then 60/5 x5 with 60s rest.

Deadlifts: Worked up to 190kg and was going to do 5, but felt too slow, so did one and dropped back down to 140kg/10. Pretty easy. Breathed too hard though.

Generally, after literally a month of doing not much of anything, I feel pretty out-of-shape. Better get back in shape real quick as I have to teach at the RKC the first weekend of June.

Off to stretch--yes--I said "stretch." Not for gaining flexibility but for stress relief. Feel like I could use it.

I trust all is going well! You will be back in the groove in no time!
Although I don't really do any static stretching either, I have found that Bikram Yoga is great and really helps my recovery (when I can shoe horn it into my schedule).
Rock on
