Never mind I see you linked to the article. It is a goofy stretch I tried it also, once.

Wanted to workout at home today but lunch did a number on my stomach didn't start feeling better until it was time to start making dinner! I'm going to start noting what I'm eating a little better because last week I had something and my stomach also felt pretty funky.

NEPA walk - 30 minutes

On the Brettzel, I like to stretch the quads/hip flexors for ~30 seconds first, then get into the stretch. I "feel" the stretch much better after I've already loosened up a bit. Once you're a bit more flexible/loose it's much nicer to be in.

I'll try that out.

Skipped the gym yesterday, got a call from my Dr's office saying that I needed to have an important this week to go over lab work from last week. I was a little bit alarmed since it seemed like the nurse said the doctor insisted it be this week.

Saw the doc this morning and so far I have abnormally high potassium and sodium levels in my blood....which could mean there were lab problems or potentially something more serious. They took another sample and now I'm waiting for the results. Debating about hitting the gym or not today. I really want to go, but my googling of the lab results leaves me a little worried. If they call back before I head out of work saying it's all normal than I'm off to the gym....otherwise I don't know.

Whoa. I hope it was just a lab error and everything's alright.

Right on!

Your Dr. sounds legit as well staying on top of your results and letting you know.

March 4, 2010

Early AM
bw = 196

1. Warmup
ECWU #2
jump rope - 100 singles

2. Strength
deadlift - 45 x 8, 135 x 5, 185 x 3, 235 x 1, 235 x 5, 265 x 3, 300 x 6
RDL - 45 x 8

TGU - 35# KB - 3L/R(squat), 3L/R(lunge)
(superset no rest)

hanging toes to bar - 6, 6, 6

3. Energy
DJ Complex C - 45 #'s - 2 rounds 1:30 rest
hang snatch
overhead squat
back squat
good morning
row
deadlift

Notes:
-5/3/1 Week 2 day 1 - Woke up at like 3:50 AM and couldn't fall back asleep so I got up and motivated myself to hit the gym so I could also give blood later today. I was so motivated in fact that I didn't realize the gym didn't open until 5:30. D'oh!
-DL - I don't know what is going on here I thought the last DL session was a fluke but these just don't "feel" right. In December I pulled 300 for 11 and today 300 for 6 just felt off. I also weight 5+ pounds less in Dec.
- TGU - I need to do these more
-Complex C - I almost threw up my fiber/protein shake all over the floor after the second round. Its almost 8:15 and I'm still feeling rough. Hm. I guess fiber+protein then large cup of green tea wasn't the best idea.

Quick KB Complex I like for trunk work (or teh abz if you like):

TGU left hand to standing + drop the left hand down and switch kb to right + immediately snatch back up + windmill on right hand + reverse TGU back to the floor + repeat in opposite direction.

Does that make sense? Got the basic idea from something I saw Greg doing with Eva T and then added the windmill. Really like it.


PS never post in the logs but I do read through a lot of them when I have time. Find it really informative and I appreciate everyone's honesty about their strengths and weaknesses.
