What’s up friends?!
It’s been a minute (read 17 days) since my last post. Let’s change that.
It’s the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend and the ‘Unofficial Start of Summer’ which to me is a bollocks because when is it not Summer in Florida? (The answer is when it’s Not-Summer which is between Post-Summer and Pre-Summer. The length of Not-Summer varies from year to year and can vary from day to day. In general, Not-Summer is when the high temperature for any given day is at most 75 F. 76 F to 89 F is Pre- or Post-Summer and everything above 90 F is Summer… and so concludes Marshall’s renaming of the seasons.)
I didn’t really do a whole lot the first part of the day, but decided to hit the gym in the afternoon. What I did is as follows:
Warm-up: Butt Kicks, High Knees, Walking Toe Touches, Walking Quad Stretch.
Trap Bar Romanian Deadlift: 1×10 @ 65 ibs; 3×10 @ 90 ibs.
High Bar Squat: 1×1 Ass to Grass hold for 60 sec; 1×10 Body weight squat; 1×10 45 ibs squat; 2×10 65 ibs squat.
I then hit the stationary bike for a ride. I did a 5 minute warm up, then a 4 minute Tabata session, and then 15-ish minutes steady state riding.
That completed my workout and I will probably have troubles going down stairs tomorrow 😈
In other news, mom made the best chicken nuggets for dinner. They were crispy, just spicy enough, and super tender. When I move out (which may or may not be soon… I’ll address that in another post) those nuggets and the sweet potato fries my mom makes will probably be my go to meal along with a side of broccoli because broccoli is delicious.
I hope y’all’s Saturdays were enjoyable!
