After last training’s quite painful start, I was really glad to arrive at the gym this Saturday noon without any aerobics class going on. That meant that I had access to the foam rollers, and thus had a more thorough warmup before I proceeded to do the following:
- Narrow-grip hang snatches
- Front barbell squats
- Dumbbell bench presses
- Barbell push presses
- Cable woodchops
I wasn’t at my best with the hang snatches today; I couldn’t quite get to my previous best, but I did the best I could. I was able to push myself a bit further with both the front squats and the push presses. The dumbbell bench presses were also a challenge to get with the optimistic load I attempted, so next time, I’ll swallow my pride and try to build back up again after going down a few notches.
It was another cold day here in northern Poland, in stark contrast to last weekend when winter seemed to be on its way out.
