Weekend Review

The weekend was a busy one:

Friday - My bumper plates arrived, so of course I had to try them out. I stacked my stall mats on top of each other and did power cleans up to 60k, dropping every single one of them. It was a lot of fun. The new barbell is so much smoother than my old one. I am very happy with it.

Saturday - I spent all day in the car, going to and from Wisconsin to look at retired racing greyhounds. My wife and I are adopting two of them. The first one arrives on Friday. It will be a lot of work, but I expect it to be rewarding.

Sunday - I spent the morning with family, took a nap, and then trained in the early evening. The workout was somewhat random, with two arm swings, kettlebell snatches, back squats, power cleans, overhead presses, and romanian deadlifts. I did not track weights, sets, or reps.

Sunday morning I weighed in at 173 (172.1 to be precise). The missed workouts due to the cold have my March 2nd strength goal at risk, but nailing 165 body weight should be no problem.  I'll keep on task and be primed for a heavy strength cycle come Spring.
