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.

Paused Bench Press

  • 45 x 10,10
  • 140 x 5
  • 230 x 3
  • 280 x 2
  • 320 x 2,2,2,3
    • 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.

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
