i am shuffling the days a bit to spread out the load slightly differently. from now the cycle will be
week 1: 2x5, 2x5, 2x5, 2x5, 5-3-2, 2x5
week 2: 2x5, 2x5, 6 singles, 1x10, 2x5, 5-3-2

possible rest days after the two 5-3-2 workouts, but preferably a very light workout on those days, maybe a bit suspension training, or even just an interval walk of 30 min. i am getting more used to auto-regulating, but i don't feel very confident about it yet, which is why i keep the weight for the 2x5 mostly the same. doesn't really matter though; as long as i keep lifting every day it'll come.


40 days: day 17 (week 3)

workout B

Warmup
7:00 min dynamic stretching and 3:00 min ATG squat

Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP)
2x5 @ 45 lb
1x5 @ 60 lb
1x3 @ 62 lb
1x2 @ 65 lb
volume: 1066

decent form throughout, even on the last 2 reps. my strength might be growing slowly, but it's very clearly growing.

Barbell Deadlift
1x5 @ 75 lb
1x5 @ 105 lb
1x5 @ 135 lb
1x3 @ 155 lb
1x2 @ 175 lb
volume: 2390

pushing it to the same weights as last time today because i felt good. my grip needs more work, but haven't moved it into the palm yet.

Two-Arm Kettlebell Swing
2x20 @ 23 lb
volume: 920

no change.

Rotational Kettlebell Deadlift

2x10 @ 43 lb
volume: 860

still winging it.

One-Arm Dumbbell Row
2x15 @ 22 lb
2x10 @ 25 lb
2x5 @ 30 lb
volume: 1460

pushed the weight up slightly on the 2x5 because i was feeling good.

Dumbbell Side Lateral Raise
2x15 @ 6 (PR)
volume: 180

did those for fun because i was in good spirits, and my shoulder mobility is getting better. puny, puny weight, but hey, it's going up for 15.

total volume: 6876 lb

no big surprises. but i guess voting in a US election, even if i could, would present a huge problem:



the good news is that the paramour, while 3 pts to my right economically, is only 0.56 pts to my right socially. i rub off. ;)

the also -- by now -- unsurprising fact that obama is just slightly less authoritarian and socially progressive than mitt romney is probably something that by now no longer escapes any but the blindest apologists. that's pretty much my own biggest failure of the decade when it comes to political assessment before he got elected the first time. the whole "hope" razzle-dazzle managed to fool me thoroughly.

from the political compass.
