I have things to do and I possibly have places to be. as a compromise I went home early. in the immortal words of Frankie Four-Fingers: ”I am not in Rome, Doug. I’m in a rush.” also, by going home early I took a break for a few hours before continuing to work. my better half will be away tonight and I can hopefully put a couple of hours into the current project (deadline next week).
earlier today, we had a seminar where we discussed examinations and treatment options in a number of conditions related to skin manifestations. I feel like have some things figured out but need to really hammer some distinctions. for instance, what exceptions exist when it comes to using corticosteroids on infants? such things. also, to make sure that I have the diagnostic criteria well memorised when it comes to atopic eczema.
this week and last, I have noticed that the clientele in this hospital gym have changed a bit. this morning, there were several new faces. one of them even squatted somewhat decently. she even used the squat rack. too bad the safety pins were placed on the floor.
what none of them have yet managed to do decently is deadlift. a new variation today was to, while a lockout, lean back so much that you almost fall over. luckily, that did not happen but I really suspected it would.
deadlift, 5 / 5 / 5. after warmup:
- 5x 133.5 kg
- 5x 153.5 kg
- 5x 175 kg (5)
not very heavy but heavy enough. I have come to think about the 5 rep week as a rest week, which is not entirely true.
squat: 5x 10 at 112.5 kg
barbell calf raise: 5x 15 reps at 112.5 kg.
ab wheel: 3x 15 reps
band flyes: 3x 60 reps
