Well, what is going right:
COVID is down locally; now about 50 cases per day.
So, tonight, I’ll mask up and go to a men’s basketball game.
The academic year: ok, so far.
Glute: well, it hurt..well, the pain migrated to below the hip, on the side of the leg. BUT I seem to have found stuff that helps. Stay tuned.
Workout notes no cyling for a while.
Friday: pull ups (2 sets of 10 singles, 10, then 6 sets of 5, including wide grip and chins), push ups 25 flat (before pull ups), 30 sissy, 30 feet elevated, 15 deficit.
bench: 3 sets of 5 x 166, single with 184
rows: 3 sets of 10 single arm
curls 3 sets of 10
shoulder: 10 x 99, 10 x 104 (questionable ROM, 10 x 93 (better ROM)
Saturday: deadlifts, rehab and yoga
rehab included fire hydrants, clam shell, banded walks, dead buts, twist crunches, side leg lifts etc and yoga poses including Frog pose. (I keep my upper body higher and on a level with my butt..kind of resting on my elbows.) (source)
Headstand: 1:40 worth (not hard); did some sun salutes, warrior 2-triangle, pyramid, reverse warrior series, trees, and single leg Romanian deads (weightless)
I really felt some release.
Deadlifts: 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 10 x 234, then sets of the 3 minutes
280 x 3, 3, 3, 3, 4 (didn’t want to press my luck with a 5’th rep)
Note: deadlifts were first; rehab and yoga/stretching came later.
