Damn I’ve been busy for the past week! I had an early morning flight to Anchorage last Friday, so I had to squeeze my clients into less days last week, setting up a very hectic schedule.
So, catching up with my workouts….by Thursday the only bodypart I hadn’t trained was arms. But, I just couldn’t stand to go another week without deadlifting. So, against my better judgement (I knew I would be spending about 12 hours on airplanes on Friday) I deadlifted fairly heavy. My schedule was extremely tight, so I ended up super-setting biceps and triceps in order to finish more quickly.
Deadlifts 8 sets 135X10, 225X8, 275X6, 315X3, 365X2, 405X2, 425X2, 365X6
Super-set Tricep Pressdowns and Alternate DB Curls 6 super-sets 10-12 reps
On Friday morning my first flight left Austin at 7:20am. I arrived in Anchorage at 4:45pm (there’s a 3 hour time difference too). It was very cold….lows in the low teens and highs in the mid-20’s while I was there, but I had a wonderful time! Everyone was so nice, and promoter, Philip Bradfield, was an excellent host! The show was small, but a lot of fun for everyone involved! Pictured above are me and our other guest poser, Shawn Clapp, along with one of his buddies.
After having lunch on Sunday, and getting the sight-seeing tour from Philip, I boarded a plane at 6:30pm to head back home. I arrived in Austin at 9am Monday morning, picked up my truck from the house and went to work on only about 3 hours of intermittent sleep on the plane. I didn’t even bother trying to workout yesterday. I was so tired that I slept for about 45 minutes on my office floor after training my morning clients. Although I got about 10 hours of sleep last night it wasn’t nearly enough.
Today I’m not sure whether I’m suffering from jet lag or just sleep deprivation, but sure don’t feel very good. All I got through in my workout was the heavy half-squats and 2 sets of just above parallel squats before I had to go take another nap on my office floor. Even with what little I got done, I kept having to make deals with myself to go as far as I did. Hopefully tomorrow, with more sleep under my belt, I’ll be feeling better!
Half-Squats 10 sets 135X10, 225X10, 275X10, 315X6X6, 365X6, 405X6, 455X6, 500X3, 530X5 (530 is the heaviest I’ve gone so far, but it didn’t feel good)
Just above parallel squats 315X6, 365X6
