yesterday, the ambulance brought in a person who suffered from a heart attack. the whole thing turned out quite good despite the sub-optimal situation. I woke during the night dreaming that I lay in bed, was assaulted and stabbed in the heart. wonder if that is what a ischemic myocardial infarction feels like. it is not critical that I get to experience either situation, though.
went squatting tuesday morning according to schedule. I felt strong opening the gym door, getting the belt etc. once I got the bar on my shoulders the stronk feeling faded and left but a faint memory.
saw a new approach to triceps pushdowns. this guy was using a cable machine, and as he extended his triceps (let the weights down) he made a little jump which gave him momentum for the coming triceps contraction. I am not sure of the logic behind this methodology, but the guy seemed satisfied.
squats, 5 / 3 / 1+. after warmup:
- 5x 123.5 kg
- 3x 140 kg
- 5x 157.5 kg (1+)
- 3x 157.5 kg (joker)
- 3×158.5 kg (joker)
- 1x 158.5 kg (joker)
I did what the program called for. anticipated better results on joker sets. have problems remembering that jokers are bonuses for days when the body feels extra stronk.
good mornings: 5 sets á 10x 83.5 kg
band pullaparts: 5x 60
pullups: 4x 10
dumbell biceps curls: 10 + 9 + 9 reps at 15 kg
