Phew! Looks like I have been away for a month at least.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been feeling pretty crappy, stressed out and downright bitchy. I have continued with my training but somehow I didn't look forward to it. I still go through the sessions out of habit and I know even though I feel shitty now, I always feel better after sweating it out.
Last night was leg day and boy.... was it one of the better leg days that I've had in quite some time! I did:
1) Glute bridges (still not strong enough... yesterday was 2 sets of 40kg for 20 reps. I'm trying to build up to a bigger weight and then transition into barbell hip thrusts which are much harder). Burnt like crazy though.
2) Lumberjack squats. I was supposed to hit some back squats but to be honest I didn't feel like it. So I substituted with a few sets of high rep lumberjack squats which was better on my knees and gave my glutes a real nice pump.
3) Landmine reverse lunges. Again this was a substitution. I'm supposed to do barbell reverse lunges. But I know my form would suck so I stuck to a 'safer' variation that gives similar effects.
4) Farmer's Walks. I didn't realize how much I missed this particular exercise. Carried 15kg for a duration of 30 seconds for each arm.
I felt really, really good after that session and ate like a king afterwards. Good times.
