Light weight training session…. and some health update

Yesterday I recieved the results of my sleeptest. No weird observations were made in the results. Only I got still the problem that I wake up at least 5 times a night. Therefore we started last night with some medication. Curious if this will help me sleeping during the whole night, instead of waking up….. keep you posted 🙂

Today’s training was done within a hour. Light weights squats and front squats. Mainly focus on allowing my right abductor to bleed through to restore recovery. Squatting went better than the previous day’s. Hopefully I can increase the weigths tomorrow. With deadlifting I felt the tension in my right abductor and therefore I don’t put maximum pressure on my legs to lift. Therefore I lift more with my back, than I normally do. So an alternative RDL’s hahahaha Put a little more weight on the bar than previous days 🙂 Bench press is feeling good and so I did 3×3 105kg (legs up).  See if I can manage 5 reps at the end of the week with 110kg (legs down) 😀

Squats 3×5 90kg
Front squats 3×3 60kg
Deadlift 3×3 180kg
Bench press 3×3 105kg

Today recovery session …..

Although I have a little reaction on my right abductor, I’m pleased how the recovery is going. Therefore today lighter weights than yesterday. Tomorrow even less weight than today with the squat, so I can move up the weights with the deadlift. Bench press felt steady again.

Squats 2×5 80 3×100 5×80
Deadlift 3×3 160kg
Bench press 3×5 95

55 minutes work-out

The countdown…

Small mistakes makes you focused….

Yesterday’s training felt good at the start and therefore I was easygoing during my squats sets. For a moment I let go of my focus on my technique and strained my right abductor in my 2nd set in 2nd rep. Nevertheless I continued my training and did my 3rd set and bring back my focus on my technique. Gladly I strained lightly my abductor and was able to deadlift. My starting position was a little higher than I normally do. The focus on my technique helps me to work around the (small) injury. The abductor is helping ‘the core’ of your upper leg and when you can stay focus on your technique you can do more what you think than on that moment 😉
