Late Workout and Amazing Sleep

I slept like a champ last night, a full 9 hours thanks to forgetting to set my alarm. I woke up late and decided to do a short upper body workout immediately, even though that meant saving my meditation until after training (something I rarely do).

After a short warm-up in my hotel room (where I do some weird moves that don't need to be done in public), I walked down to the small, old, yet faithful gym at the Crowne Plaza here in Independence, Ohio, and I did...

1A) Maximus Pushups (1-1-1-1) - Max reps = 33 (new personal best)
5 sets of 101 pushups from the 5 sets

2B) DB Curl
2C) DB Triceps Extension

That was it. Solid pump. Then had breakfast, then sat through a boring seminar trying to extract some gold nuggets. While I listened I also created the September TT WOM - The Total Body Banger. We'll soon have a new bodyweight program out for July, then a Meathead program for August.

Later tonight I fly back to Toronto. Insert tired arms joke.

Then I drive home for another 90 minutes.

Should be around 9:30pm when I get in. Pet dog for 10 minutes. Sleep.

And then the fun begins.

Meditation. Dog Walk. Big breakfast. Digest. Squat workout #1 of new training program. Monday morning repeat, but with bench press.

Good to be back to the barbell.
