24 September 2008

Got started up at the new gym. It's brutal. This place is Yuppieville, USA...bad. But, it's literally around the corner from my place and they have a few kettlebells, so I'm OK with it for now.

Non-specific Warm-Up
-15 minutes on the bike

Deads (Conventional)
-Bar X 20
-135 X 15
-225 X 10
-315 X 3
-315 X 3
-315 X 3
-315 X 3
-315 X 3
-135 X 10 (Sumo)
-135 X 5 (Sumo)

NOTES: I could have gone way higher in the deads, but on day one I thought it best to just find the groove and stay in it. Everything felt real solid and the weight felt super light. I only pulled a few sumo sets in cool-down because I've never really pulled sumo. It always felt awkward for me, but hitting sumo light after the working sets felt great. Who knows what will happen here? After the initial break-in, I'm going to be hitting the big three with one or two auxilliary movements. That's it. I'd like it to be a simple three day split; M-W-F, for working days, cardio T-R. I'm not sure how the grip stuff will fit, I've just been doing grippers here and there, but I'd like to get more consistent.
