I am healthy and with health insurance and employment. I have money in the bank (not a lot of it, but enough). So I have plenty to be grateful for.
But, I am just gloomy today; this quarantine stuff is getting old. Yes, the university made the right decision but it was a painful (and predictable) one. Yes, it is supposed to be for 2 weeks but…
On a personal note (see the “health insurance remark” above) I got a physical yesterday and got a flu shot in one arm and the first part of shingles shot in the other arm. That left me with two sore arms and seemingly less energy.
But I said “well, I’ll try this morning’s weight workout” and see what I can do; my goal was 2/3’rd of normal.
Less warm up.
pull ups: did “broken sets of 10” broken into singles, doubles, triples, then sets of 5, then singles again. 60 reps total. Decent height.
bench press: backed off, 10 x 134, 10 x 154, 10 x 154
trap bar deadlift (deficit; stood on 10 kg plates) 10 x 154, 10 x 184, 10 x 206. Full stop and set down between each rep; saved the last set for last
single arm rows: 10 x 60 (dumbbell)
seated shoulder: 10 x 80, 10 x 84, 10 x 84 (or 79, 83, 83..whatever)
And I felt better afterward. Oh, arms are now sore again, but I swear less so.
Extending the arms overhead is just a bit painful..in a sore way.
