  1. I'm taking a brief break from lifting, hopefully just 1 week. I feel like shit, I've been eating too many carbs and I have no drive/focus. Gonna focus on walking as much as practical and try to find some cheap non-carb based pandemic food.
  2. Squats happened, was feeling like garbage so did the barest minimal. 4.2 20/05/07 Prep Dynamic Shoulders x2 Prep Dynamic Hips x2 Prep KB Halos 2x8 Prep Prying Squats 2x6 Prep T-Spine Rotation 2x3 Prep Glute Bridges 2x6 A1 Bench Press 70 x8 8 85 x6 6 102.5 x6 6 120 x3 3 137.5 x3 3 155 x3+ 3 A2 Barbell Row 70 x8 8 85 x6 6 102.5 x6 6 120 x3 3 137.5 x3 3 155 x3+ 3 B1 FG DB Press 40# 3x8 8 8 8 B2 Lat Pull Down 120 3x8 8 8 8 My swiss bar came in the mail finally, gave it a spin for all my work sets. It's not bad, will take a bit of getting used to. Not sure if I like the amount of twisting my wrists are doing throughout the movement, will look up some tutorials on the youtubes.
  3.

  17. It's fine. We held out as long as we could and there is plenty of provincial/federal assistance in Canada to see us through for the time being. This was inevitable and we all knew. Job will be waiting for me when business is able to resume.
