I managed to more-or-less forget about my July goals until yesterday, which isn’t….great. Still, I ought to review them, and make some more for August. Perhaps I won’t forget these.
Eat more protein! Hmm, not great. I’m trying, I swear, but I often don’t have the capacity left to force a protein shake down at the end of the day. Plus I often manage to forget to bring my protein shaker, protein powder, or both to work. Doh.
Go to a holistic class at Urban Kings at least once a week, if not two. Win, with the exception of the week before my competition (when I don’t usually work out at all anyhow).
Go to that Tuesday kettlebells class. Total fail. I think I forgot just how few Tuesdays there are in a month. I’ll call this one a lost cause & try to go to a different conditioning class instead.
Try to be kinder to my humungous belly. Eh, sort of.
Compete on July 26th. Yep.
Protein. Plus ça change.
Get down to 73kg by the end of the month.
Work on my grip every damn (training) day. I might actually try out a new hand configuration on deadlifts too.
Go to bed earlier. I keep finding I’m all scrungy in the mornings, and it’s usually because I went to sleep post-11pm. Yeah, I know, that’s not very late. I think I just need a ton more sleep now I’m old.
Monday: squats at BGWLC
There was no power at the gym last night (block-wide powercut) so I had to train as quickly as possible before the sun went down. Fun times!
- Squats: worked up to 6 @ 55kg, 6 @ 65kg, 6 @ 75kg
- Sumo deadlifts standing on 2 mats: 60kg, 6 sets of 2
- Dumbbell shrugs: 20kg, 3 sets of 10
- Glute & ham raises, cable crunch, pullthroughs (superset): 3 sets of 10 each
