This workout was pretty tough but fun. I had only had one day of rest from weights since my pull workout so my hamstrings and back were still feeling pretty sore. My hands were feeling inflexible and tender so I decided to go with back squats instead of front ones. Lunges got pretty funky towards the end of the sets. Didn’t improve with bench press and had to drop the weight or risk being flattened. Didn’t improve with military press so lowered the weight for the remaining sets unlike the last push workout I did. This meant I could actually get 5 reps out. Managed to hit myself in the chin with one of them - lol.
After all this leg destruction I got on my bike in a huge gear (50/14) and managed to hold 30mph for just over 3 minutes down a long stretch of flat road which gave me 4 Strava KOMs. My legs really started to suffer in the last minute or so but I kept on pushing. I also signed up for a track race which is this Saturday so I won’t be working out again until after that. There’s a sprint competition which should be fun. I’m excited to see where I’m at in terms of racing bikes right now. I feel fast, but it doesn’t mean I am compared to other people. Hoping the race doesn’t get called off due to rain like the last one!

Back squats: 90kg
Bench press: 1 set of 65kg, 2 sets of 62.5kg
