w2d1 – story of my life

came to think of this gem. the album ”life on a plate” was released back in 1995. the record label, burning heart, was quite big at the time and carried a lot of great bands. the inevitable and definitive decline of the label came, if memory serves, around 2004. there is a complete discography at wikipedia. check it out.

the weekend was really great. spent saturday at a nature reserve, swimming in a forest lake and enjoying the weather. made a one-day road trip on sunday. time well spent socialising with friends. storing up on good things.

went to the gym as usual. slept in a little bit (got out of bed at 0600) due to coming home after midnight. I was very happy the loads were somewhat lighter. still had to grind out a couple of repetitions, though.

forgot my band at home. so, no band pulling today.

main lift

military press, 5 / 5 / 5+. after warmup:

  1. 5x 48.5 kg
  2. 5x 56 kg
  3. 7x 63.5 kg (5+)

no joker sets on 5+ week. the seven reps came up easier than I expected. got an epiphany while holding the bar: even though something might feel quite heavy, that does not mean I will be unable to perform the intended number of repetitions. sure, I stopped at seven, but in no way was it a grind.

assistance lifts

paused bench press

  1. 10x 66 kg
  2. 10x 66 kg
  3. 10x 66 kg
  4. 10x 66 kg
  5. 10x 66 kg

a light load but I was very thankful for it not being any heavier. I dare say I did okay today and, more importantly, I did pretty good last thursday when the load was significantly heavier. looking forward to the bench press days to come.


  1. 10
  2. 10
  3. 10
  4. 10
  5. 10

quite heavy, as usual. feels like I’m getting stronger in the back. now doing these with a little chalk which has improved things tremendously. the pullup bar in the work gym is noticeably thinner than a usual bar and a great deal thinner than the crossfit bars/racks I’ve become accustomed to during the summer. stronk.

proceeded with bonus exercises.

dumbbell shoulder press

  1. 10x 22 kg (per arm)
  2. 8x 22 kg (per arm)
  3. 8x 20 kg (per arm)

dumbbell bicep curl

  1. 8x 18 kg (per arm)
  2. 8x 16 kg (per arm)
  3. 8x 16 kg (per arm)

that’s all, she wrote.
