Oh man my glutes and hamstrings were aching so much on the farm today, when I first got into work I really thought I wouldn’t make it to lunch time, let alone the end of the day, but once I got warmed up it eased enough to at least walk properly, kind of lol.
Got home from work and really didn’t think I’d be able to do any deadlifts, but I thought fuck it, I’ll just man up and cope with the DOMS in my butt and hammies.
To be fair once I finished the first set, I actually felt alright, and by the end of the 5th set they had both pretty much stopped aching, which was good as I got on with the rest of the workout pretty smoothly, and it seemed quite quick today, which is possibly due to it being a little lighter, so I wasn’t straining too much.
Although I did have some real burn in my abs and obliques when I did the hanging raises, as I’ve not done them for months, but this year I want to make sure I do some every other workout, consistently.
Also I switched my plain wide pull ups for ring pull ups, as I got a little bored with them last year, and I really do like ring pull ups, and weight especially too.
|Weighted Ring Pull Up||2||10kg|
|Weighted Ring Pull Up||4||7.5kg|
|Weighted Ring Pull Up||6||5kg|
|Weighted Ring Pull Up||6||2.5kg|
|Hanging Straight Leg Raise||8 – 8||BW|
|Side Plank||30 secs||BW|
