Hitting the Y today for the last weight workout for the week. We are running a 5K Saturday morning, so not lifting on Friday to rest. Started off with some dates and hazelnut butter preworkout:
- Dumbbell cuban snatch: 1 x 6 15 pounds, 2 x 6 20 pounds
- Dumbbell single-leg deadlift: 3 x 6 at 25
- Barbell bent-over row: 1 x 6 at 55, 1 x 6 at 65, 1 x 6 at 75
- Dumbbell single-arm overhead squat 3 x 6 (using 10# and 20#)
- Dumbbell incline bench press: 3 x 6 at 25#
- Planks: 90 second holds 3 times
- Reverse woodchop: 3 x 6 at 50 pounds
- Bodyweight matrix: 1 time.
I noticed my hamstring felt funny on Monday, but then it didn’t bother me yesterday. Today it definitely felt funny during the workout and after 1 time through the leg matrix it started to hurt – not good. I decided to not do any more of the matrix, as I have the race on Saturday. It feels uncomfortable right now. Never had a hamstring problem before. Think I’ll be doing the Tylenol PM tonight.
Had John meet me for breakfast!
Stopped to take a picture of the little fountain near the parking lot.
Today has felt really snacky. Not sure if it is the heat or the humidity (or both).
One of my favorite chips are Food Should Taste Good brand. Here is a link to print a $1 off coupon good through the end of August! Stock up! My favorite flavors are the sweet potato and the multigrain. I wish our stores stocked the lime.
Here is a video of the dumbbell snatch for those that are curious. I actually jump a little bit as the weight nears the top from push off, this woman does not. It’s a great whole body exercise.
I have graduated to the 20 pound dumbbell with this one. Not sure I want to try the 25# one or not, it is a little scary LOL!
Had cereal and yogurt for dinner. Dinner of champions!
And – some of these:
Not a great eating day. Seems like I have a day like this about once a week. Can I call it a refeed day?? Calorie cycling, that’s it! 😀
Question: Are you a lurker on a lot of blogs or do you only read and interact on a few?
