w3d4 – when it rains, it pours

as it does every year, swedish summer has turned to autumn. it follows that it also rains more than what should be allowed.

went to the gym in the afternoon. came home late from work last night and could not really sleep right away. I think I really needed the extra hour in bed. had an easy day, though. just four hours in ER, then a meeting for about an hour and off to lift.

before going home, I had a cup of coffee with an old friend who also happens to work at the same place as I do. he is a physicist, though, and is a specialist on MRI. I can accept that the cameras work and on a superficial level I think I also grasp the technical concept (manipulating electron spin and measure when they flip back, somehow). back in 2005, as part of my first university degree, I took a course in measurements techniques. the curriculum carried topics such as crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. really cool stuff if you get into it.

during this university program, I constantly just passed the exams due to me putting almost all attention to other things (read: sports and girls). the measurement technique exam was the only exam where I got a higher grade than my annoyingly bright friend (who earned his phd several years ago and is now an established researcher).

main lift

deadlift, 5 / 3 / 1+. after warmup:

  1. 5x 146 kg
  2. 3x 165 kg
  3. 5x 183.5 kg (1+)
  4. 3x 183.5 kg (joker)
  5. 3x 185 kg (joker)

I am happy with these lifts. almost puked during each set due to stuffing my face with food shortly before lifting. luckily, I did not cause a scene and did not embarrass myself.

assistance lift

squat (all the way down, ass to calf, olympic etc.)

  1. 10x 123.5 kg
  2. 10x 123.5 kg
  3. 10x 123.5 kg
  4. 10x 123.5 kg
  5. 10x 123.5 kg

I was really spent after squatting, so I left. better luck next time!
