It's a Long Road

This evening I lifted again. The following was done:

Warm Up - 12k Swings, Presses, Snatches
KB Snatch - 8/8 x 16k, 16k, 16k
Bottoms Up KB Press - 4/4 x 16k, 16k, 16k
Split Squat - 8/8 x BW, BW, BW
One Arm Row - 8/8 x 16k
One Arm Curl - 5/5 x 12k, 12k
Overhead Tricep Extensions - 5 x 12k, 12k

My joints are out of alignment and the skin on my hands is tender, so nothing heavy yet. I was surprised how quickly I hit my conditioning barrier on the snatches and split squats. My shoulders are clicking on rows, so I cut those short. I need to start stretching regularly again.

The weights in the basement are working very well. The most important aspect - the new computer is down here. The wife will come downstairs and talk to me while she uses the internet. We spend around an hour chatting every evening, so this is a great way for us to multi-task.
