Wowsers, what a weekend.
Let me just hold my hand up and say – I was too hung over to move on Saturday and I wasted the WHOLE day in bed. Until 5.30pm. Don’t judge me. My friends are over from Australia right now and we partied like there was no tomorrow after they played a show at The Underworld, in Camden. It wasn't necessarily a late night, but there was a lot of beer and we all had a blast. Apparently it was the best night of their tour, so Michelle and I were pleased to be a part of it! Well, I wasn't too pleased with myself for spending all day in bed on Saturday, but I made up for it on Sunday.
Sunday I got up and did my usual weekend routine. Changed my bed sheets, did some cleaning, went for a jog, showered and went up the road to run some errands. I felt like I almost had a proper weekend. But in saying that, it would have been great to of had another day off to do nothing, and not feel like death.
Sooo… after a weekend of bad nutrition and feeling sorry for myself – I didn't really know what to do in the gym this morning. As soon as I came in though, I noticed the boys were not in the weights room using the big bar. Oops…. I deadlifted again.
Cross Trainer - 5mins warm up
Squats with bar only – 20kg, 3 x 12 reps
30kg – 3 x 12 reps
40kg – 3 x 10 reps
50kg – 3 x 5 reps
60kg – 3 x 3 reps
65kg – 1 x 3 reps
I feel really strong deadlifting 50kgs. The only thing is though my hands become a bit sweaty and my grip isn’t strong enough to hold the bar when my gloves let me down. I think it might be time to invest in a proper pair of lifting gloves.
So, basically, when I did this last week – I couldn't walk properly for a few days afterwards. My hamstrings were so tight! Hopefully that doesn’t happen this week. I plan to do a LOT of stretching when I get home from work to make sure I avoid the worst of it.
Also, do you like my new phone case? Pretty cute huh? It’s from Drop Dead and can be bought from their website HERE.
Have a good Monday everyone!
