Mike,

Thanks for sharing and for the comments in my log. Despite your unfortunate circumstances, I admire you for looking at the positive side of things. I never considered your not being here selfish. Sometimes you just have to retreat and take care of things.

Talk to you soon.

Gil

I almost forgot to post Friday's workout...I didn't have access to the weightroom since the local high school where I coach and train at was closed for Easter recess. I did a brief kettlebell workout at home

Kettlebell clean and press @ 24kg
8 sets x 1 rep each arm

Kettlebell swings-one arm style x 100 reps

I had a nice Easter Weekend to ponder some things about my training. I came to the realization that I do not want to have my workouts stuck in pre-set percentages. I hate training light!!! It's back to my dinosaur days of heavy singles and adding weight whenever I can, not when the percentage chart says to...I'm sold on heavy singles, have been for years and I should kick myself in the ass for altering my training. I'll keep the lifts where they are during the week. I guess this is one way of just saying "Fuck It!"
I've got my own path to follow and the naysayers can go to hell. :drool:

Didn't have access to the weightroom yesterday since school was closed for the Easter Holiday. Had a stressful day today. I was going to squat, but since I was in a foul mood, I decided to do deadlifts today and squat tomorrow. I can just hear the exercise police scream...but that's too much work to do on back to back days. You should gently stress the muscles, blah blah blah. I will be fine with this week's training. Just being flexibilbe.
Deadlift
135 x 2
245 x 1
335 x 1
405 x 1
480 x 1
Stress gone...feel much better.

Hanging leg raise: 3 x 5

Can't wait to squat tomorrow!

Nice, IW. What't the heaviest kettlebell you have at the moment? I know they have a 106 lb, or "the beast" at dragondoor.

I know that my squat numbers are down, but they are improving (damn that pulled muscle that I had). I can see 400 at the end of the short tunnel.

Friday April 17, MMIX
Push press
Bar x 3
115 x 1
135 x 1
145 x 1
155 x 1
170 x 1
180 x 1

The push press numbers are going up. For awhile, I was doing dumbbell presses using this rep scheme: 2,3,5,10. I would do two series of these reps. I thought it was time to go back to barbell push presses.

Farmers walk w/75lb dumbbells...heaviest we have at the high school. Two sets.
