Second day back in the gym after my last mission. I did dumbbell snatches (3X5) followed by deadlifts (3X5) not too far from my personal best weight. I intended to do flat bench barbell presses next, but despite waiting on 6 benches in the gym for more than a few minutes, it seems that everyone was still doing National Chest Day on a Monday, even in Saigon! Instead, I substituted with 3 sets of pushups (10 reps) going directly to clap pushups (another 10 reps) without stopping. That was fun and challenging to do. I then did dumbbell rows (5X5), face pulls with a rope (3X12), Russian twists (3X10), and then finally three-point planks (60 seconds on each side).
Eat right, train hard, and expect success!
