at the core

I’m still not recovering well, I might be coming down with a cold (fingers crossed that my immune system chases it off) and just to make things really interesting my period arrived a whole 2 weeks earlier than expected. I’m still sore from Tuesday, especially since I did a second, heavy lifting session in the evening. Whiiiiiiiine.

Squat – 5x135lb, 5x155lb, 5x185lb, 1x205lb, 1x205lb (with awful form, and nearly fell over with the second 1×205)
Bench – 5x135lb, 5x145lb, 1x150lb, 1x155lb (miss)

I took Wednesday off entirely, but this morning I went to the gym looking to do something useful but light and that hit some different areas. Core work, then!

Warmup: 1 mile on the treadmill
Kettlebell side bends, 3×10 each side
KB swings, 3×10
Plank holds – 3×1 minute
Cable wood chops, 3×10 each side
Glute thrusters – 3×10
RDL – 1×10
Donkey kicks, fire hydrants, aux hip stabilizer work
Plus bonus stretching and foam rolling

Dunno if $husband is going to want to lift tonight. I might try to get some squat volume in if my back and hips can tolerate it.
