Day 724: Turning Bulgarian

Day 724

  • Dumbbell snatches
  • Alternating sets of
    • Side-to-side pushups
    • Jackknife pushups
  • Bulgarian split squats
  • Cable push-pull rotations
  • Planks

I was on my first set of split squats when I felt that the initial weight I put was too heavy.  I thought I was just having a bad day, so I decided not to increase the weight, but instead, decreased the weight a little in the third out of the four sets.  When I looked back on my training notebook, I realized I was doing Bulgarian split squats (with the rear foot raised on a bench) instead of split squats (with the rear foot on the floor).  Even with the reduced weight I was close to my best weight for 6 reps on this exercise, so it turned out ok.
