Had a lifting accident today when my barbell broke but luckily did not get injured. Was doing Viking landmine press and the fat part of the barbell that the plates rest against came off and slid down to the other end of the barbell and all the plates followed. I had no idea what was happening for a second and just let the whole thing go. Pretty sure the bar is unfixable and I would normally order a new one but we are moving in about a week so I will prob just wait and use my specialty bars for the next week or so.
Did 315 a little while ago so went for a small PR but wasn’t quite there. Not really surprising, been under the weather the past few days
High incline db press
Head supported bent over db row
Movers come tomorrow to start packing up our stuff. Hoping to get in one more heavy leg session before that. After that it will be bodyweight or hotel workouts while we are on the road. Moving back to Virginia for a couple years
Didn’t get in my ME lower session yesterday bc the movers had packed most of my lifting stuff by yesterday time I was able to lift. There was an adjustable db still left and a couple other things so just did a quick leg workout.
DB Bulgarian split squat
Db SL RDL
Posterior plank with March
Back to logging after a 2-3 week break. Did a couple hotel workouts and then a stomach virus hit our whole family and took a few days off. It was pretty terrible especially with all of us in a hotel. After that spent a couple days on the road and arrived in VA last weekend. Did some push/pull/leg workouts this past week to get back in the swing of things and was pretty weak from traveling, being sick and not sleeping well. Decided to go back to conjugate training today and working out at my dads gym temporarily.
Haven’t logged the past few days bc I tested positive for Covid and so did my wife and we assume our kids have it too. I have been asymptomatic, my wife was very achy and tired and our kids have had fevers but seem to be getting better with Tylenol/ibuprofen. As far as workouts, I did a short run Monday and today did a upper workout on my dads old bow flex. Will hopefully get back in the gym this weekend.
In better news, got hired as a personal trainer at a place called the st James in Springfield VA. It’s a 450,000 sq Ft athletic complex and prob the most impressive facility I have ever seen
