    To Carry A Keg - Workout Log

    Just hit the tail end of a real rough flu, so I figured now is a good time to log my workouts somewhere public as I ease back into the routine. Maybe it'll guilt me into logging properly, maybe a random passerby will point out something stupid I'm doing, maybe it'll just be a digital record I can reference if/when I lose my paper journal... it's all good!

    I've given up losing weight/sculpting an attractive physique. My only, very obtainable*, goal is to lift a keg onto my shoulder. I'm an out of shape, tiny girl and on my own**, but this is doable. I love lifting and have for years, but... Life, Effort, Excuse, Excuse, Excuse. Ugh. I do full body every time (rather than Leg Day, etc.) because I'm dumb and lazy. It's just easier to keep track of when I do the same thing, 5x a week.

    *For reference, Anchor beer lists a full beer keg as 140lb, well under a bodyweight bench.
    **Progress is slow, because I have no spotter and am terrified of overlifting/injury.

    - - -

    Current numbers, as of 2 weeks ago:
    (exercise - pounds, sets x reps)

    10min walk to gym + dynamic stretching (warmup)
    Standing Toe Raise - bodyweight, 3x10 (warmup)
    Front/Lateral Raise - 10, 3x10
    Leg Extension - 80, 3x10
    Leg Curl - 60, 3x10
    Incline Bench Press - 40, 3x10
    Arnold Press - 20, 4x5 or 3x10
    DB Extension - 20, 3x10
    DB Curl (mix) - 20, 3x10
    Upright Row - 30, 3x10
    Lat Pulldown/Row - 60, 3x10 ***
    Deadlift, standard - 148, 3x1 ***

    ***This is all my plates! Once I build up to pull/chinups, I'll replace Lat Pulldown/Rows with them and free up some plates for deadlifting.

    Pathetic, I know, but I'm getting back into things after a solid year off + flu.
    I work out in the evenings, so the day's results should be up around 7PM MST. Tue & Wed are my usual rest days.

    Lungs burned halfway through each set and I puked a little in the corner like a chump, so I guess I'm not 100% well yet lol. Right shoulder had a weird click and left was a bit stiff. Otherwise, a good day! : )

    Thanks! It feels great being back already, hopefully DOMS doesn't punish me too badly. ;P

    Tuesday & Wednesday are my rest days!

    I would have done Thursday/Friday since this is my first week back, but yesterday suggested that I could maybe use the 2 extra days to recover. Still walked to the gym and back twice today and was a little out of breath. Lame.

    The good news is that my DOMS was extremely low, so either my 2 week flu didn't do as much damage as I was expecting, or tomorrow is going to be ROUGH lol.

    Go to a local beer store and ask for an empty keg. You can usually get a nonfunctional one for free or very cheap (I think I paid $20 for one when I had one). Learn how to take the valve out on YouTube or it's time consuming but you can fill it with a hose and something to keep the valve open. Fill it up about halfway and now you have the perfect thing to start training with.

    No deadlifts today, it was so hot I was getting light headed lol. All my numbers could use some adjusting, but I'm too lazy to change plates, so I'm doing supersets until they get too easy. (toe raise & lats to warm up, then everything after in trios) No DOMS and shoulder click is gone. Churned out my lats better than literally ever, so that was cool! (unlike my no AC gym...)

    Yeah, I don't have much local anything out here in the boonies, so my best bet would be getting like a rain barrel from Tractor Supply. There's a winery down the road I meant to ask about barrels, but a neighbor said they asked (for their wife's garden) and they wanted like $300 for the old dirty ones. I'll stick to barbell and/or sandbags in the meantime lol.

    Moving Tuesday's rest day to today.
    It was over 100 all day... the sun is about to go down and it's still over 90.
    Might be time to cannibalize some plates to load up some free weights, in case my machines end up unsable. : (

    Alternatively, I could see if I have enough extension cords to set up a fan out there, lol

    [Rest day yesterday]

    This week has really drilled into me:
    <99*F = uncomfortable, but I can work through it if I take it slow
    >99*F = too hot, working out is a dangerous idea, and I'd rather be un-alive
    Nowhere that gets over 80 is habitable imo

    It was only 80 today, but I was lethargic af again. Probably just forgot to take my allergy pill at lunch (+200mg caffeine). Still, I took "no" rests between supersets, doing super-supersets, with the only breaks being adjusting a plate and/or writing down numbers. Made me a lil dizzy lol. Almost caved in my teeth benching 40 lbs... my arms are GARBAGE.

    I need to look up leg curl vs extensions again, because even though I know curl is supposed to be like 65% of you extension weight, mine doesn't seem to be improving. +5 lbs feels like a HUGE increase, but my ext. can easily break 100 (assuming I had the spare plates), but I don't want to get more unbalanced uping ext.'s at all...

    Monday was garbage enough that I didn't record it (bad day in general)

    Today & tomorrow are rest days!

    (I would have written Monday off as one, but I did do work... just poorly. Also, I'm dumb and don't want to confuse my schedule, lol)

    visited the parents and dug postholes for a couple hours...

    Today

    10min walk + dynamic stretching
    Arnold Press - 15, 2x10
    DB Extension - 15, 3x10
    Lat Pulldown/Row - 60, 3x10
    Deadlift, standard - 148, 12x1

    I need to start working out at like 11pm-2am again lol. It is entirely too hot! Today rained all morning, was overcast all day, with a nice breeze... so ofc the gym was humid and ~75 felt like 90. Attempted to do at least half my routine, sweat like a pig, so gave up and just did deadlifts again. My back is going to hate me in a few days, but my shoulders look nice. : )

    Dug a 3'x3'x3' hole in mostly rock "soil".

    Mom wanted to plant a tree, but whoopsie doodle, the auger is still broken... we have a pick and shovel though! It was a legitimately nice day today, luckily. Thankfully I had already taken it easy in the gym, but I'm going to be in pain tomorrow. (I am already lol)

    So this week is super fun. Road flooded out and the power has been on/off at random. One day is dry and hot, then the next cold with SO. MUCH. RAIN.

    When I can make it down (don't feel like wading to the gym in rain boots lol) I've just been doing deadlifts and calling it a day.

    It is SO HUMID. I have no energy and everything is gross. :T

    Haven't been keeping track of my numbers, because I've been super annoyed about the heat and inconsistent power. It's 10pm and still 80 out ffs. Still been hitting the gym whenever I can, though that's been as touch and go as the power outages...

    New 1RM for deadlift is 188
    (need to retest once I'm consistent again; my back has been acting like I took a month off, rather than a week)

    New baseline for deadlift is an easy 158
    (168 if I feel like changing more plates... lol)

    Everything else is mostly the same. Lats and pulldowns have been pretty good, could probably stand adjusting.
