piranha: stylized white figure lifting a red barbell with weights (lift)
i am watching "game of thrones" now, and wow -- that is gorier than the average horror anime, and that's saying something. more commendable: free-swinging human penes, 3 by my latest count, 2 of which in non-sexual situations. i am very pleased to see full frontal nudity not limited to women. it started out that way, and i was making snarky comments to the *poing* in IM, about the ratio of naked tits to fully clothed men. but then the show redeemed itself at least on that account.

i thought i had read at least the first book, but nothing rings any bells here, so i guess i didn't. which i shall remedy forthwith, since i am enjoying the interminable scheming, and that's bound to be even more fun in written form -- though the series is not finished, and judging from how long it took to get here, it'll be some years before it will be, and i don't generally like to invest myself anymore in series that are not finished. but there seems to be a continuing stream of unraveling of schemes and hatching of new ones, so it's not like i will be kept from some huge final denouement that ties it all together.

i like the dwarf best, and arya, of course.

onward to the workout.

40 days: day 07 (week 2)

workout A

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

Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP)
2x5 @ 45 lb
2x5 @ 55 lb
volume: 1000

lackadaisical. i wasn't feeling tired enough to add a rest day, but i wasn't really feeling the love either.

Barbell Deadlift
1x5 @ 75 lb
1x5 @ 105 lb
2x5 @ 125 lb
volume: 2150

the weight wasn't bad, but by this point i thought maybe a rest day wouldn't have been the worst idea.

Two-Arm Kettlebell Swing
2x20 @ 18.5 lb
volume: 740

but i got this far, so why not continue.

One-Arm Dumbbell Row
4x15 @ 20 lb
volume: 1200

at least these went well, though by the second set i was pretty much done for the night. skipping the planks, going to bed. i think i shall make it a rule that i must take a rest day after a 5-3-2 workout unless i feel unusually energetic.

total volume: 5090 lb
