day 2429 – garage equipment

at apex for a private session working on my clean and jerks . the clean feels fine, but that jerk still feels somewhat disconnected, but still worked up to match my heaviest fifty-two kilos. the coach graciously lent me a set of equipment i could practice at home during this covid time. i get a men’s bar, and some lighter weights to practice safely. loading and unloading all that was a workout of its own

day 2374 – squat days

skipping the paused squats and added a little bit of weight to the old fashioned back squats. it was deloaded week so kept the weights in check and didn’t stretch myself too far. i also did some lighter cleans for feelers and they felt doable. i hope return to apex this week and start off feeling more fresh. it being the first of february sure seems like some resolutioners dropped off because the gym is slowly becoming less packed

day 2241 – new belt

picked up my new belt with the forth stripe but looks like i’ll have to call in to ask about the quality and workmanship. the belt has a crooked joing in the middle as if two shorter stripes were haphazardly sewn together. also noticeable was the quality of the belts has gone down and they don’t feel as weighty as my previous one. i would feel stupid for wearing this that’s not up to par

day 2008 – intermitting

mid morning grapes is rewarding during my intermittent fasting phase. i’m usually immune to being hangry, though i can’t control being hungry. i’m doing this is to cut down after the holiday season to improve my sports performance as well as to reach my overarching fitness goals. i want to up my game to help with hockey, taekwondo, flips and tricks and dodgeball. also, part of it is just to change up my diet and get it back on track
