Week 1, Day 3

Finally bought something that will impact my future gains, a new BBQ grill.  I'm not really sure why I waited 3 years before finally buying one but now that I have one, I'll be able to quickly prep lots and lots of meat.  Prior to this purchase, I had to use a slow cooker or a pressure cooker or my dutch oven to make variations of stews, braises, or other slow cooked protein sources.  I could also make roasts in the oven but what I really missed was the ability to char the crap out of large quantities of meat without setting off the smoke alarm and making the house smell like burnt flesh for the next week.

my world of food prep is forever improved
Still a bit DOMsy from earlier workouts but managed to get in some good work today.

Push Press:  135x5, 165x5, 185x5, 205x3, 205x3   I still suck at these, hopefully my push press will start to exceed my military press soon...

Stiff legged deadlift:  225x10, 275x10, 315x10, 315x10

Seated cable row:  130x10. 150x6, 140x6, 130x6  for some reason the seated cable row at the Oakville Y is one of the hardest ones I've ever used.  I wish they just had a good, old fashioned weight stack with simple pulleys.  I can't tell what this one has but it feels like the pulleys are cammed rather than just being circles.

Face pulls from the seated cable row:  40x12, 40x12, 40x10  The angle is different than doing them from a high pulley but it worked really well.

Weighted back extensions:  60x10, 60x8, 60x8

DB hammer curls:  55x6, 55x6, 55x5
