Week 5 Day 1: 10/25/11
I usually do Day 1 sessions on a Monday but was unable to due to my wife getting sick. So I did today’s workout on a Tuesday right after I dropped my son at school after having a long night at work.
I surprised myself because when I workout after work I tend to have a craptastic session. Add to that the fact that I actually partied and got drunk this weekend for the 1st time in months and still somewhat sore from the last session on Friday!
Started off feeling a bit off when I was doing my pre-workout warm-ups but picked up from there.
Amazingly enough I had one of the best sessions today!
I learned and fixed some issues that have troubled me for a while and even achieved a PR on my bench press!
This just shows that even though you may think and/or feel like its going to be a bad session, you need to push yourself and do it anyway and it may actually be one of your best sessions ever!
Also added seated good mornings as part of my pre-workout warm-ups again in hope of fixing some of my squat issues, which I think it is.
Got myself a pair of shorts I used to wear back in my USMC days. They are called “Green Silkies” or “PT Shorts” and found them to be AWESOME for squats! You can get them here: Soffe.com
Also decided to start wearing my Rippletoe shoes again for a while instead of my Vibram KSO’s.
