Slowly back at it.

Tues, 26 Sept 17

Work and home life have been impacting my workouts greatly.  I managed to get in to do a light upper body workout last Monday, and then had a day with a wife in the hospital and travelling for work.  This week I will be travelling, but there is a half-decent gym in the hotel to get an upper body workout, plus a pool for some cardio.

Today I did high rep upper body work, dumbbells, curl bars, machines, smith overhead presses.  Went well, no discomfort.  I have about two more weeks before I can start working my legs out again.

Another setback

Wed, 6 Sept 17

So, last week I had a great workout.  Since it took so little time I decided to play with a new toy in the gym, a sled.  The Torque Fitness TANK.  It was a pretty interesting little machine, but seemed too easy.  So, I cranked it to max resistance with about 8 plates on it.  Things went well for a bit, really hard a good cardio feel to it, then both of my calves popped.

Bilateral gastroc strains lol.  I had to be taken out by stretcher, couldn't weight bear.  I'm off legs for another 6-8 weeks.  yay.
