Yeah my shoes suck, I'm getting some for Christmas, so I have to just suck it up until then.
Alright, squats aside, I got a decent workout today. I've really been freakin' slackin, and I knew it would be hard to be consistent this month, but that's no reason to slack off when I can be workin out. I started off with 5 min on stationary bike+some dynamic stretching and warm up sets.
225x random reps of really sucking at squats
Kettle Bell Swings:
[16kg x 3 x 10]+[32kg x 1 x 10]
1 Dead hang Chin up
10 jumping chins + 10 push ups (x3)
Squats: I really tried to keep my back tight but I could really just feel it go limp when I tried to get deep. I am considering doing a massive reset on squats just so I can get the form right, possibly all the way back down to 185 or so. We'll see. I attempted to do box squats, and I did them for my warm up sets and they went ok. The problem is, the only box I could find that worked was too long and when I unracked it only gave me about 2 inches to step back. It just made it weird and cramped. I successfully did 195 x2 but I had to stop because I kept hitting the pins that you rack the bar on.
Press: Hooray for 10" washers! I decided to do a reset on the press last time, and dropped all the way back down to 100 and will just micro load it from here on out. My goal is to get to 130 for my work set, 2.5 pounds at a time. I tried to do a little less payback than I was previously doing, I think I was successful in this.
Power Cleans: Meh, these felt super easy considering I am doing a reset and am at 10 less pounds than I was at last time. Having said that, I have no idea how my form is. Is my back to vertical? It looks straighter than it used to be, but maybe I need to be getting my back straighter and more horizontal. My shrug also looks pretty meh. Might start adding in some shrugs for assistance exercises.
KB Swings: I figured I should at least do some swings after sucking at squats so bad. No idea if I am doing these right, so I figured I would upload a form check to find out. They did feel a lot easier than last time I did them, 16kg was a piece of cake, and 32kg was a lot easier than I expected.
And to really punish my self for slackin I did a brief little jump chin/push up super set. I can finally (barely) do 1 dead hang, so I did that and then pumped out some jump chins and push ups. Sweet.
And enough is enough! I am tired of looking relatively fit and having this huge gut hanging out. I am officially going on a diet of hopefully ~2500 cal a day. No more fatties!
