Training Log: Kaizen, July 6-12, 2020

Running through my first Ditillo routine this week. I had to admit, this week was a butt kicker. That was a sharp uptick in both volume and intensity from the “building habits” phase I was in. Hammies were tight after Monday, and I’m playing with rack pin heights on the half squats and rack pulls. Still, it is fun to be pushing myself a little again. It’s good for my mental health to lift heavier.

I am planning on repeating this training week, going for more reps on the max sets in week 2. This one is more legs and back-centric.

New gym flag.

I also got a new gym flag this week. I just hung it up as a curtain for now until I get the walls repainted and rearrange a little. I’ve always like that mantra, “Iron Never Lies”. It reminds me of an old Details Henry Rollins article that I still read at least once a year. In a lot of sports, you can blame a coach or a teammate or the quality of an opponent, for the lack of any success one may encounter. But iron is iron. Iron can’t be blamed. Iron never lies.
