Uhm, it’s the 20th of July and this is the first blog o’ the month. Yet I’ve exercised all but one day since I last posted. Yes, I know rest days are important, and I ensure that every few workouts are indeed a “recovery” workout.
Forty-nine percent of white Americans support that monstrosity. Now try to convince me that racism isn’t alive and well in the good ol’ US of A. I’ve recently discovered (although I was certain it was there) deep seated racism in some of my closest relatives. And why is it that the more educated a relative is the more likely they are to be progressive? I just answered my own question.
I purchased a bathroom scale. I haven’t gained any weight during the pandemic. What about you?
I continue to cook and bake, and my most recent success is the French macaron. Boom. My piano playing skills continue to improve almost exponentially. Boom and boom.
I also continue to complete a session of the “Elevate” app most mornings, and have achieved 400/400 on quite a few of the activities, all of them in writing and reading and none of them in speaking or math. Ha! WTF is up with that?
There are, of course, far too many workouts to list, so I’ll just mention a few that I can recall. All were NFT.
5 rounds each of 5 deadlifts @ 185, 190, 195, & 200# + 10m sprint; walk for recovery
1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1 strict C2B pull-ups + 10m sprint; walk to start for recovery
10-9-8…3-2-1 strict & unbroken T2B
Begin each round with 10c row in 10 strokes
100/leg alternating leg box (24″) step ups
50 rounds of DL + HPC + hang thruster + thruster + 10m sprint; walk to start for recovery
25 rounds of 10/leg mountain climbers + 10m sprint; walk to start for recovery
NFT & TNG
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 ring rows; end each round with strict ring dip
Yup, a hell of a lot of running. Because I fucking love running. Keeps the heart healthy and strong. My focus has been on strength and conditioning. Most days I’ll complete two back-to-back workouts, averaging around 20-25 and 10-15 minutes, respectively.
