I say you look stronger in the sleeves if for no other reason that they cover up your wobbling knees

I do think your squats are looking better as you are going up in weight.

Monday October 9 – 145.4 lbs

2hr 15min hike, 5.8miles, 1,000 foot elevation change, +25lbs

2936 cal/330 carb/105 fat/175 protein/50 fibre

I went for a hike first thing in the morning. My wife and kids were going to join me afterwards for another hike but it was pouring rain all morning so they cancelled. I briefly thought about doing another loop on my own but 2 full hours of getting rained on was about enough for me. My long weekend eating binge continued with the better part of another pumpkin pie and 600cals shot to movie popcorn in addition to plenty of tasty real food.

Tuesday October 10 – 143.4 lbs

Rest day
Minimal mobility and dynamic stretching stuff, maybe 10 mins

1651 cal/140 carb/54 fat/172 protein/38 fibre

Every thanksgiving family descends upon our house and infects it. All three of my wife’s sister’s girls were hacking phlegm and mucus all over everything. My Mom was dying of ebola so badly that she couldn’t leave the house on Monday morning to catch her flight and flew out last night instead. Tuesday morning one of my boys woke up vomiting and Tuesday night the other came down with a fever. Time to burn the house down and start all over.

Wednesday October 11 – 142.4 lbs

25 mins core, mobility and dynamic stretching stuff
OHP – 2x5x45lbs, 5x65, 2x5x81, 5x81, 9x70
Chin-ups – 7x, 6x +27.5lbs
Squats – 15xbw, 2x10x45lbs, 2x5x85, 5x125, 3x165, 2x185, 2x5x212.5, 5x212.5, 8x185

2014 cal/143 carb/82 fat/192 protein/43 fibre

Went home early with early onset stomach-ebola but after spending a bit of time on my couch whining I figured I would take a crack at getting my scheduled work out in. Lower back was a bit sore after doing my overhead limbo presses so I was undecided throughout my squat warmups as to whether I would add any weight to the bar for this session. In the end I tricked myself into adding 2.5lbs by considering adding 5 to make it 215. Got me good. Almost missed the 5th rep on my first work set and found subsequent 5th reps a bit of a struggle but not as bad as the first go around. A reset is happening very soon but the hiking over the last while seems to have stretched things out a bit.

Thursday October 12 – 145.4 lbs

53 min walk (some running), 4.16miles, +25lbs
3x6 pullups
3x8 NG chins
3x8 chins
25 mins core, mobility and dynamic stretching stuff

1644 cal/112 carb/64 fat/179 protein/31 fibre

I was at home for most of the day due to my basement getting backed up with our own sewage. Excellent use of a vacation day. Threw my backpack on and headed out for a walk while the cleanup crew was at it. I ended up mixing in some decent chunks of running other than the first 8 mins and last 12 mins or so which were all walking. The running portions were not fast and my body let me know that it doesn’t like running with a 25 pound backpack on but it did it. Mixed in running for 0.3 – 0.5 miles at a time with some short bouts of walking in between. My knees and ankles complained a decent amount but I think just a little bit of stretching beforehand would have done the trick. I had only intended on walking so didn’t bother with any stretching before I went out. Meanwhile my wife was down and out with full blown stomach bug issues. My stomach has been iffy for the past few days but this virus working its way through our house hasn’t take full hold on me yet.

Friday October 13 – 142.6 lbs

25 mins core, mobility and dynamic stretching stuff
Unscheduled rest day

1591 cal/121 carb/53 fat/178 protein/38 fibre

My right ankle was quite sore all day and I didn’t get home from work until almost 8pm. Those were all the excuses my InnerEV needed to crumble and call it a rest day. Iced my ankle, watched garbage on Netflix, stayed up too late and then got woken up several times overnight by the mini beasts. Was supposed to do a Bench/DL workout which probably would have been just fine on the ankle. Anyway, I’ll do that workout this morning and squat tomorrow and either lose a hike or run for the week or sneak something in later in the weekend.

Saturday October 14 – 141.7 lbs

25 mins core, mobility and dynamic stretching stuff
Bench – 10x45lbs, 2x5x65, 5x95, 2x5x120, 8x120, 12x105
DB Curls – 3x15x30lbs
Barbell Curls – 5x45lbs, 2x15x55
RDL – 2x8x45lbs, 8x95
DL – 5x95lbs, 5x135, 5x165, 6x205, 7x175
RDL – 8x95lbs, 6x115, 5x135

1 hour off road walk at hobble speed with kid, 2.8miles, +25 pounds

2266 cal/149 carb/95 fat/219 protein/36 fibre

Deadlifts felt a bit better other than the first couple and last couple. So, maybe 1 rep felt decent. Bench was causing all kinds of pain in my left arm again. That seems to be happening at lower and lower weights so I probably should be giving that lift some rest and swapping in something else. On the bright side I stopped noticing any pain in my right ankle after benching. Did some extra curls to try to help with blood flow in the elbow area but couldn't find anything heavier than 15lb dumbbells. Iced my ankle a bit more last night but it is still sore this morning which has me considering pushing squats off another day. Might just do half of my planned workout today.

Sunday October 15 – 142.4 lbs

25 mins core, mobility and dynamic stretching stuff

KB Halos – 3x10x16kg
KB Rows – 3x12x16kg
OHP – 2x5x45lbs, 5x65, 2x5x82, 5x82, 9x70
Chin-ups – 7x, 6x +27.5lbs
Face Pulls – 3x15x25lbs
Pullups – 3x6
Chin-ups – 3x8

2053 cal/190 carb/80 fat/164 protein/48 fibre

My five year old did a work out with me, joining me for almost half of my stretching and core stuff and then he did a decent number of chin-ups hanging off the barbell between my OHP sets. He was good for one or two chin over bar chins per set with lots of partials. He wanted to use the simple econo spud pulley I have collecting dust in the garage so I ended up doing a few sets of face pulls messing around with different heights on the pulley. I did a couple sets with the pulley around nipple height and then tried it at closer to nose height. Nose height worked much better as the reduced length of hang saved me a couple feet of real estate on the pulls. Skipped squats as my ankle was still quite sore so added some other stuff. May do squats Monday night instead of a full rest day depending on how things feel. Splashed around in the pool later in the day with the kids but it was all fun nothing resembling exercise.

Monday October 16 – 142.8 lbs

25 mins core, mobility and dynamic stretching stuff
Squats – 15xbw, 2x10x45lbs, 2x5x75, 2x5x95, 5x125, 5x145, 3x165, 2x175, 6x5x185
KB Rows – 2x12x20kg

1626 cal/123 carb/54 fat/176 protein/38 fibre

Argued with myself back and forth for a while about taking the day off versus trying to pick up yesterdays missed squats. Eventually settled on doing some light squats. My ankle is still quite sore but it seems to be more sensitive to any sort of impact whereas standing and squatting didn’t bother it much at all. Didn’t try anything heavier than my recent back off set weight anyway. Did a few kettlebell rows afterwards with too many reps at that weight for me to handle properly.
