Training: 8/6/2011

A. Back Squat: 3x1.; 5min rest
B. Deadlift: 8x2 @ 11x1; 60sec rest (205)
C. DB Walking Lunges: 3x12/12;90sec rest (50)
D. 1-Arm Farmer's Walk: 3x30sec/arm; 30sec rest b/t arms (100)

I was a little apprehensive going into today's workout. I haven't back squatted in over 3 months, and the prescribed weight for the workout was 87% of my maximum back squat (330#). I hit that in March. Back squatting was tough, but it felt great to move some heavy weight around again. Hit all 15 reps too. Right ankle was "pinchy" at the bottom on some reps. Definitely plenty of scar tissue there that still needs to be broken up. I have been doing the walking lunges with 12 on each leg though it is written as "3x12." My glutes and hammies are wrecked right now.

Energy level was good today even though I didn't get the best night's sleep. Most likely from the cheat meal I had last night that consisted of wendy's, pizza, chicken wings, and taco bell (oh and a twix to wash it all down). 1 cup coffee prior to workout ensure good energy levels during this CNS demanding workout.
