Cardio--5 Volleyball Games to 21
Lots of good heart pumping here. Team is struggling this year, so we are getting a good workout playing. Patilla tendon right knee irritated by the jumping.
Did a little circuit training. 12 reps, 5 circuits of squat, bench, mil. press, row, SLDL, curl, tri ext. with 5lb. DB's just to work out some of the soreness, and get my blood moving.
Draper 5x5, Week 11, Day 2
Seated CG Row
This was MAX out day, push to failure on the final set of each exercise. These numbers are used to figure the success of the program, and give starting numbers if a second Blast is done. I'll do a Summary this weekend, after the final three lifts.
PR on Squat--Very happy with the max on this, way more than I expected. Kept perfect form, and set the weight down on the safeties for a 1 count before pushing up again. I did wrap my knees as my tendon is very unhappy. It felt a lot better wrapped, but thinking that may have given me a little extra help on the lift.
Bench--Didn't gain anything from Week 9, but still almost a 20lb. increase from the beginning of the program, so happy with this. My right shoulder has bugged during these, so I took a video of the lift today, so I can analyze my form, and see if I'm doing something wrong that is causing the discomfort.
Row--No gain here from Week 9, but certainly more than on Day 1. This is one of my stronger lifts, so expected gains to come slower. Very happy with the gains made here.
