Upper at Home

Today I had the opportunity to lift in my home gym. I did kettlebell snatches, presses, and renegade rows. All exercises were done with moderate intensity. Following the kettlebells I did some braced bending isos, rolling handle lifts, and lost a hard fought battle with a phone book. I have not trained grip since the contest two weeks ago. It shows.

Originally I planned to bike to the gym for yoga today, but I am exhausted. I slept 9 hours last night and fell asleep for another hour after my workout. The stress of two weekend trips coupled with starting a new job has finally caught up with me.  Given the opportunity to relax, my body is finally letting me know how tired it is. I hope to be fully recuperated by Monday.
