Back from Atlanta. What an awesome place! I spent my kids birthday at Six Flags White Water, it was awesome and well worth the money. I had Cheesecake Factory twice, and don't judge me. I had a Kobe Burger and then went back for Fish Tacos, never had any Cheesecake though. I had enough deserts with my son's cake (Coldstone Creamery Ice Cream Cake). Hit up the World of Coca-Cola, pretty interesting stuff.
I was able to get in a workout early in the trip. I found a small gym nears my Mother's that had a rack and was able to knock out 5x5 Squats @ 245# and 3x5 Press @ 115#. Other than that I go no workouts in. Basically, I had a full deload week, and that's okay by me.
I returned to the gym Tuesday with some Squatting:
Along with 3 x max reps - weighted dips @ 15# (8-7-8)
Wednesday went well, I thought..:
Press 3x5 @120#
Finished with 5x5 T-bar rows @ 135# and 5x5 T-bar press (might be what its called???) @ 90#, no rest between sets.
Meanwhile, the Olympics is happening. Been watching what little coverage of Weightlifting I can, and watching all of the Gymnastic competition. Not much to comment on but its all very inspiring. I WILL say that I was completely disappointing with the rules limiting each country to two participants in the individual all-around. Jordan Weiber outscored all but 4 women who qualified for the final but was not allowed...what a shame!
