Keg Over Bar (57”)
30 Minutes of Stretching
It continues. Another Wednesday workout; gym lifting and then event
work. Events were my concern for the day as the scattered rain made
things touch and go. When it rained, it was a hard torrent so I had to
hope that any rain would miss me during that window of setting up
weights, lifting and putting away weights. Started off at Max Fitness.
Again, not going for max effort with the hatfields. Same weight as last
week, just trying to move it faster and stay more upright. Second set
felt better than the first in both how if felt and how it moved.
Hamstrings were getting put through their paces with the glute ham
raises. Not bad on my lower back this week but hard on the hamstrings.
Headed home for yoke and keg work. I did more sets for yoke as the
heaviest set distance was shortened to just 20’. Wanted to make sure I
was awake and ready to go. My start and pick are still pretty slow but I
do get moving and pick up speed. Faster than last week on all sets but
not as fast as two weeks ago. Keg work sucked. I thought I could take my
foot off the gas here as I was only to do two sets of six with much
longer rest. A light rain made all the difference as well as my sweaty
shirt and arms. I screwed up the first rep of the first set real bad and
almost missed it. I got two more reps before completely biffing a
fourth rep. I had to get two sets of six. The keg was slippery and I
felt I had nothing in my lower back. The intense headache at the base of
my skull came back with a vengeance on rep four of the last set. It
still lingers and if it still there, I may need to get it checked out.
After some of my worst keg loads were done, I cleaned up, stretched and
ate two carnivore pizzas.
