Spontaneous Workout Check-In

    Since all great things come in pairs (hands, feet, peanut butter and jelly, Abbot & Costello), it only makes sense to have a match to the Nutrition Check-In. So...when was your last workout and what was it? No need to give poundages, unless you want to boast, I mean share. And I'm sorry, but for all intents and purposes, attending a martial arts class does not qualify as a "workout", regardless of how intense. We're talking about non-dojo-related exercise. Cardio, weight training, calisthenics, whatever.

    Also, please don't use this thread as a workout journal. That's why there's a "Journal" section of MAP. This is simply to share what you've recently done, and to maybe squeeze out an ounce of motivation to those in need. Remember, everyday you don't train, your opponent probably is. :cool:

    Tuesday night: 1-arm DB Snatch 5x1, 1-arm BB Deadlift 5x1, Turkish Get-up 5x1

    Why such light weight? If you can do 25 reps you should up the weight.

    Today will be:

    PR Zone 1 (15 minutes)
    A1- Bench (with my new groove :cool: )
    A2- DB rows (just for the sake of an antagonistic pairing, and warms me up for my second PR Zone kinda, going to get rid of them though due to PR Zone 2)

    PR Zone 2 (15 minutes)
    A1- Pendlay rows (gonna try them after blessed suggested them in another thread, usually I do bent over rows though....:D)

    No antagonist for second PR Zone because I don't feel like it, and I also find it simpler to concentrate on one exercise per PR zone to get the most out of it....:p Multi-tasking is not my strongest suit... :rolleyes:

    Yes, BeWater was making fun of my lack of arm size. At first I cried, then I grew angry, then I was in denial, then I decided to follow the Gironda-esque set up (a suggestion of his that seems to be working nicely).
