--> never tried this before, but I kinda liked it. Had trouble putting my arms at my sides after the second time through.

Lateral db raises 3x8, RI=45s
25, 25, 25

Cuff series and isometrics

-- Had to cut this one short. Wife bought tickets for the Sweet 16 in Indy, so we were off to the games. Louisville laid a whipping for the ages on Arizona. Pitino's team is ridiculously deep and was hitting on all cylinders for this game. MSU/ Kansas was a better game, but the prize for winning... a cigarette and a blindfold, left a little to be desired. Great time.

Back in town this morning.

Interval Day

Row 500, 1min rest. damper @ 6, pressure: 32-34
1:40; 142; 1:50; 1:52; 1:50; 1:52

Sorta what I thought. I started today thinking that I would try to keep my 500s at less than 1:45, but my legs flamed out spectacularly after the second interval. 1:40 isn't pushing particularly hard... 1:50 is just going through the motions. Yesterday's squats and jumping didn't help, sure, but between this little diagnostic and the growing knowledge that my recovery between sets and even between workouts isn't what it has been, I think I need to address my conditioning base in the coming weeks.
