Bally the Dog and I are out in the country this weekend where we did our regular big dog walk at the park, and then a crazy mid-morning thunderstorm hit, complete with marble-sized hail.
Don't know if we'd ever had that out at the farm before...first time for everything, I guess.
I then spent the morning working on an updated version of the classic www.turbulencetraining.com manual...
We'll be releasing this new version (and new bonuses) to all past TT members - and all new TT users, of course - on Memorial Day...just in time for the the last day to enter the 5th TT Transformation Contest.
I ended up drinking a few cups of strong Green Tea to stay focused, giving me a little more caffeine than normal, and so when I went to train, that focus carried over into a great bench press workout.
Because I'm going to Bethesda, Maryland this week, I had to move my workouts up a couple of days. Here's how it went down...
1) Bench - Did 250x2, 260x2, 270x2, 275x1, and 255x3 (felt good)
2) RDL - 255x3x6
3A) DB Incline - 85x3x8
3B) BB Row - 205x3x8
Then I went back and had some pancakes. Yeah, pancakes. With real maple syrup and butter. Hey, it just felt right.
Then again, Jay Ferruggia says you should eat pancakes, lots and lots of pancakes if you want to get big and strong. And Jay knows his stuff. So I guess I was just following a trusted recommendation.
Going to do squats on Monday,
