Weekend Review

Friday I did a lower body workout, consisting primarily of squats and deadlifts.  Squats were lame. Deadlifts I worked up to a few singles with 110k. Then I spent about a half hour trying to do a pistol. This included balancing in the bottom  position, step ups on a tall bench, unweighted attempts, weighted attempts, unweighted attempts at deck pistols, and weight attempts at deck pistols. I am able to hold the bottom position with 10lbs in my arms, so the full pistol shouldn't be too far off now.

Saturday I did an upper body workout, consisting of swings, snatches, one arm presses, weighted chins up to a single with +15lbs, and some bending. I am happy to have been able to do a chin with any extra weight.

Sunday morning I weighed in at 172. Progress is slow but steady. I am back on an upper / lower split with the string of nice weather we have had. I am also off work for awhile (by choice), so I have more free time to play in the gym. Financially I can go over a year without working, but I am actively searching for the right opportunity. I started with my prior employer right out of college and was with them for a little over 5 years, so I am very excited to do something new.
