This is last week's array of training fun.


Conditioning: Walk around campus with weighted vest


  • SSB Box Squat: 185x5/210x5/235x5
  • Pull-ups: 5x5
  • FSL: 10x5@185
  • Dips: 5x10
  • Curls: 5x10
  • Neck: 50


Conditioning: bike 30 minutes


  • FBB Press: 105x5/115x5/125x5
  • KB Swing: 5x10
  • FSL: 5x5@105
  • Side Raises: 5x10
  • KB Row: 5x10

I dropped my 10x5 FSL and did Raises because I have a massive knot in my upper back/trap that is causing numbness and pain in my shoulder and arm (like 2 years ago).  Too much overhead work between 15 sets of Pressing and 5-10 sets of Pull-ups is the culprit, I believe.  i'll modify this until it gets better and then move forward.

I did nothing but lay on the couch most of Sunday.  Football had practice at 9am so I went in and warmed them up.  After that I made a nest on the couch and settled in to enjoy one of my last days where I have very little too do.  Unfortunately, I accomplished next to nothing in my house.  This could lead to a mess accumulating once the regular season routine begins.

Despite the pinched nerve issue in my back, training is going well.  I'm taking more advil and Aleve than I like, but it's temporary.  I'm getting all kinds of fancy treatment on my back in the training room.  Ice, heat, stim... I'm sure it's working.
