Beautiful Day

60 degrees and pouring outside.  There is not better weather for training in the garage.  I really enjoyed today's workout.  It went down like this:

Barbell Complexes: 5 x 65, 95, 95, 95, 95, 95
5 x Front Squat
5 x Hang Clean
5 x Push Press
5 x Romanian Deadlift

Chins: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

Reverse Bending
3/16" x 6" round
3/16" x 6" round
Medium Timber Tie
Medium Timber Tie
1/4" x 7" round
1/4" x 7" round

FBBC Bomb: 1/1 x 60, 70, 80, 70, 70

This was an excellent workout.  The cool weather let me add 10lbs to the complexes with no more effort than 85lbs was the last time I did them.  It looks like the conditioning goal I set for myself will actually be pretty easy to achieve.  I am happy to have gotten multiple singles on the chins, BW was 196 today.  Bending was weaker than usual, but I'll take it.

The evening workouts are allowing me more time for rest and I seem to fit my active recovery in much more often.  I spent most of today laying in bed sleeping, that may have something to do with the good progress.  Time for dinner and a shower.
