Oh boy, I was sore from Friday's squat workout, even though I cut the weight and volume. Nine days off from real leg workouts will do that to you. So I was moving gently this weekend.
To overcome the soreness, I did a lot of light activity, and today I felt a lot better. I'd probably still be sore if I just sat around all weekend. Sore muscles need to move. Not "worked out", but moved. It helps.
Alright, so today I did...
1) Power Clean - 3x5
2A) Bench Press - 3x8
2B) Front Squat - 2x6
3A) Pullups - 3x10
3B) Neutral Grip DB Chest Press - 3x8
3C) Leg Curls - 3x12
That was good workout. Total body. A little weak after the 9 day break from lifting.
After workout lunch: Chili with wild rice, 2 cups chocolate almond milk (sweetened)
Filming a kettlebell workout tomorrow...here's one for today:

PPS - Finished "Catcher in the Rye" last night. I think I liked it.
Read "Clockwork Orange" and "Grapes of Wrath" on planes to/from Europe. Disliked both of them. Next is either "Emergency" by Neil Straus, or "Mr. America" by Mark Adams. You choose for me. Thanks!
