    Tuesday
    A couple of errands to do before training.

    Two Hand Pinch
    Equ (27.7kg) x 20 reps, 57.7-kilos x 20 reps, 85.95-kilos x 10+5+1 reps in about 75-seconds.
    Upped another 1/2-kilo but damn I hit the wall today. I'll be staying with this for 2 weeks I think. Not far to go to 90-kilos.

    Monday
    The leg workout was fine in and of itself. But the damned trail walk after... oof. Less the distance (5-6km) but tiny sheep trail footpaths and a LOT of changes in elevation. The walks stop me stiffening up but damn they deplete my glycogen.

    Leg Press
    to the full whack - 700-kilos x 8 reps (time to up the reps)

    Power Squat Machine
    I decided to up the angle of the footplate (there are 5 positions and I'm usually on No3) to position 4 (steeper). In this way I can rack it myself. I held back from maxing it out too much so 'only' went to 400-kilos
    to 400-kilos x 8 reps
    Seated Leg Curls
    to stack +5.5p x 15+3+2 reps

    Leg Extension
    to stack x 16+4 reps
    Bwt: 298lbs

    Tuesday
    Two Hand Pinch
    Equ (27.7kg) x 20 reps, 57.7-kilos x 20 reps, 85.95-kilos x 10+9 reps in about 75-seconds.

    The usual slow Tuesday start. It's the leg workout and 'hella' walk right after.

    Tuesday
    Two Hand Pinch
    Equ (27.7kg) x 20 reps, 57.7-kilos x 20 reps, 86.45-kilos x 10+8 (nearly 9) reps in about 75-seconds.
    The usual slow Tuesday start. Yesterday I ate what was for me the biggest steak I've ever had. Aldi's did a 'cowboy' steak (essentially the same as a Tomahawk steak). 940g on the bone (about 2lbs or 32oz total). I treated myself to this beast and managed to eat 99% of it with the cats getting some nibbles through the meal. Deffo fuel for a workout.
