The past few days post-Pan Am I have allotted myself a few of the "treats" that I had been denying for the months I've been cutting weight, latte here, PB&J there. I find that I do better in full on denial for several weeks (8-12), then a week of "cheats" here and there, then back on lock down. Others work differently and can cheat once a week or so.. I find that routine helps me stay on track during my "on" time. Different strokes. Last night I had some nachos and later ice cream while watching the UFC. It was fantastic. 2 more cheats then back on lock-down (fish-n-chips this weekend, then my belated birthday dinner with the in-laws.. sometime)
Did some heavy lifting, but low volume last night:
OHS 20+@ bar. (Took me this many to hit full depth without anything under my heels. I am going to get my hips opened up if I have to use the tire-jack from my pick-up to do it)
worked up to 1@135 hang snatch.
1+@+45 (didn't quite make the second rep)
chest supported rows:
Then headed home.
I noticed this morning that my right (surgically repaired) delt and bicep are visibly smaller than my left. I have been doing some work to try to bring them up (I always start 1 arm work with my right, I only allow my left to do the number of reps completed by my right, ect) but it seems this is not enough, I am going to try some addn'l volume (as part of my warm-up) to bring the right side along.
