Day 15 of 32

Yesterday I ate 2000 calories and 100 grams of protein. In the evening I bowled, no DDR.

This morning I woke up feeling tired, but ready to go. I ate my yogurt, read, and then hit the gym:

Warm Up - Exercise Bike 7 Minutes, 12/12 Swings x 12k, 16k
One Arm Press - 8/8 x 16k; 6/6 x 20k, 20k; 5/5 x 20k
Romanian Deadlift - 12 x 20k, 50k, 70k, 70k, 70k
Kettlebell Push Ups - 12, 10, 5
Squats - 10 x 20k, 30k, 50k, 50k
Pinch Barbell - 5 x Empty, 50lbs, 50lbs, 50lbs, 50lbs
Cool Down - Exercise Bike 7 Minutes

I was not in the mood for high reps on the one arm press. Romanian deadlifts were hard, but I managed. My shoulders felt very stable on the first set of push ups. That feeling reduced quickly on the second and third set. Fear of tweaking something due to instability drove my numbers.

Squats were very hard for me, I took a lot of time between the last two sets. I think it is important I make these happen, but I am not good at them.

The air was humid today due to rain, so my spidey grip was tingling. I could have done more sets with the pinch barbell, but I decided moderate success was sufficient. The rain also ruled out my weighted walks.

The exercise bike is working out well. Over the weekend I sorted out some new music for my lifting sessions, and I am really enjoying it while on the bike. I have pulled a few dozen of my wife's CDs out of the basement and will rip them over the next week or two. It will fun to switch up what I listen to while training.
