Trying something new today. I've been working from home lately and walking on a treadmill as I'm on the computer.

I need to take frequent breaks to stretch my back and stuff. Had an idea this morning that during my break, I should just do a set of what I would normally do when I lift.

This way, I don't have to schedule a time slot in order to train...I'll just train during my breaks during work! Time in between sets will be long (15+ minutes).

Over the course of the day, I *think* I'll end up doing more volume than had I trained conventionally.

We'll see how it goes.

    • I think next time I'll complete my warm up sets right away, and then for my main sets do them during my work break.

    • Wanted 3. First set I misplaced my fingers on my right hand.Ring finger on the outside rings instead of the inside ones. Blah.
    • Missed the 3rd rep on the 2nd attempt.

Right knee has been bothering me lately. Not sure why. Maybe from kicking my Son's soccer ball outside. Going to take it easy for squats until it feels better.
