I was pretty excited and nervous for this workout; thrilled to be grasping a barbell but terrified I was either going to feel the bad kind of pain or move poorly and hurt myself. (It feels like forever, but when I look back at my training log it’s been about 3 months since I’ve done any lifting.) I took it easy on the front squats and warmed up slowly. Kept it at 75# because 75# never felt so heavy. My hip flexors fatigued quickly and it was strange to me to feel it there first. I also noticed that my core got pretty tired by the end, too. Here is the video of my last set… (Is that an ass wink or just a funny angle? I don’t think I had an ass wink pre-injury!!! WTF.)

The chin over bar holds were a challenge as my shoulders really want to say hello to my ears. Again, just felt a little weak. Next time I gotta put the clock front and center where I can see it, instead of off to the side. I think I could have eeked out some additional time that way.

Handstands are fun but I didn’t make much progress in the travel distance today. Seriously, once I was finished with the front squats a little euphoria set in and that was that. The bi’s and tri’s felt good. All in all I was thrilled today. Excited to see how I feel tomorrow…

Minus that whole flooding thing, rain storms make for delicious sleeps.
