Okay. Energy is much better today than two days ago. My energy is much better if I can get my training in before noon. Late afternoon and evening workout rarely work for me. I am finding that I am getting tired earlier probably due to increased work schedule. 6 to 8 training appointments every day picking up weight, stretching people and just being on my feet takes its toll. Lower volume, higher quality workouts are the goal right now. That's what I love about Pavel's approach -simplicity. Do more by doing LESS. Keep it simple, couple of exercises, stick with the basics. It's what Dan John calls "punch the clock" workouts. He notes that most champion athletes are built one workout at a time. If you can't sustain the intensity of the workouts , back off, and focus on quality. Full range of motion, technique and focus -I must remember these qualities.
Barbell overhead squats (felt really tight in the shoulders from not doing these in a while)
3 sets x 5 reps
Barbell Bent Over Row
135 x 6 reps x 6 sets (felt easy - could have gone much heavier - but glad stuck with this load)
2 x 36lb KB's in hands x 6 reps x 4 sets (very sore two days later - perfect weight)
Rope Waves (my new rope - I love it - this truly is an amazing exercise -very sore in my abs)
4 sets x 30 seconds
