Strength

This morning I woke up at 5:30 and decided to make the most of it.  By 6:15 I was lifting.  Over the course of 90 minutes I did the following:

Warm Up: 1/1 Turkish Get Up with 12k KB
Deadlifts: 3 x 45lbs, 95, 135, 155, 175, 185, 205; 1x225, 225, 245
Chins (between sets of deads): BW x 1, 4, 3, 2, 1
Presses: 3 x 45, 65, 85, 95; 2x105 + 1 push press
Push Press: 3 x 115, 125
Pistol Practice Between Pressing Sets - 6 sets of assisted triples

Overall it was a decent workout.  I originally planned to lift yesterday evening, but ended up late at work and my knees were achey from the running on Tuesday.  I have lost strength on the deadlift, but am very close to one of my chinning goals.  I got some video that I will process and put up later.

I am getting anxious to finish running and get back to lifting 5x a week.  Saturday I will take a long jog and think about it.  It would probably be wise to hit my weight goal for Gripmas before changing anything.
