Purchasing Weight Training Accessories

March 26, 2018 Check-In

Last week was "deload" week, a week with lighter weight to recuperate, and so the sprints on the bike were set at 1.

I continue to work on getting healthier. I'll do some extra tracking this week. The glucose was 119 and blood pressure was 143/86 with an 82 pulse this morning.

I lifted the same all three days last week:
Deadlifts at 145lbs for 4 sets of 5
Squats at 115 for 4 sets of 5
Bench at 110 for 4 sets of 5
Pull ups for 3 sets of 3
And some stretching

This week is starting the second strength cycle for this year. Because of weekend events I'll be lifting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week and next. The sprints for the HIIT workout will be set at 22. I think I will keep with this type of rotation until I can get to a solid 90 RPMs on 25.

Here's what I lifted today:
Deadlifts 135x5, 205x5, and 220 for 2 sets of 5
Squats at 135x5, 175x5, and 180 for 2 sets of 5
Bench at 135x5, 155x5, and 170 for 2 sets of 5
Pull ups for 3 sets of 4
And some stretching

I'll do something similar on Wednesday. Friday I'll go hang with a trainer to check my form.

ABOUT THE BLOG: This blog started years ago to talk about self-care and weightlifting. It stopped for a few years. It was restarted when I was told that I was diabetic. I had an A1C of 9.3. A1C is an estimate of your blood sugar level over the last 3 months and 6.5 is pre-diabetic, and usually over 7 is considered diabetic. In March I was re-tested and my A1C was 5.0. That's below pre-diabetic (so, essentially non-diabetic). It was nice to have my doctor say, "you used to be diabetic." I'm still working on improving my insulin sensitivity and not thinking I&…
