  • deadlift 365x5
    press 150 (3/4/3)
    pullup 9/8/6

    Tried the rower but it's still broken. I'll contact facilities after the new year about it.

        I contacted facilities and they seemed to have fixed the rower. I was still a bit apprehensive and didn’t pull as hard as usual. This week was just to get burned in again. Gained no holiday weight or waist.

            Pulled harder on the rower this week. I think it was fixed.

                  First time lifting at Big Sky in Simsbury. Good gym overall --- three true power racks, circular plates, lots of bars, chalk ok. The C2 rowers seem broken, no resistance. And although I could bench inside the squat rack, I didn't, and their benches only have one hook setting.

                    Man, what's with all these janky rowers?? I see Rogue sells one for $900. Haha.

                  Joined Big Sky officially. Nothing beats lifting at home, but it’s a good gym, all things considered. Couldn’t get 5 reps on press sets.

                    Deadlift was 4 DOH / 1 MG. Hadn't eaten much.

                      pullup 11/9/7

                      I’ve dismissed this effect in the past, but I honestly think pressing right before pull-ups primes my arms and increases at least my first set. I have no explanation for that, just years of observation.

                          They fixed at least one of the rowers at Big Sky. Couldn’t get 5 reps on bench, although maybe in the middle set I could have.

                            Bad back tweak on second rep of deadlift. Had to stop. Still did the rower after but couldn't get intensity high enough. Back is very stiff now. No radiculopathy, as usual, but the muscles are pretty bad. Very limited mobility.

                              First time back since the last day of February, when I tweaked my back. A lot has happened since then, of course, and now I'm living in a house, with a basement whose ceiling is not high enough to fit my squat rack. Can't go to the gym, because it's closed. I have my barbell, plates, bench, and I built a pullup bar attached to the exposed joists. I haven't figured out my programming yet; today was just a tryout.

                              The bench isn't going to work. Seated press is okay, but cleaning and then sitting down sucks. Pullups and chins are fine; deadlift is fine. I bought a C2 rower, new, and it's like heaven. I think that I'm going to go for lighter weight, higher rep ranges (somewhere in 8-12). Main goal is to lose bodyfat and try to keep the strength up. Maybe the higher rep ranges will buff me up a bit.
