Week 1, New Year, fresh start

Although it's Friday, I'm calling this Week 1 since it's the second day of the new year.  Since I'm not training for a specific competition this year, I'll just count the weeks as they pass.  Taking most of the last two weeks off has allowed just about everything that was feeling crispy to heal up and if anything, I've gotten a little stiff and sore from inactivity.

Because of that, I took today pretty slowly.  Squats felt good with only a little hint of the left hamstring soreness.  I'm pretty happy that the hamstring is healing up.  I think I aggravated it with the wide stance squats and didn't give it enough chance to recover between sessions.  I'm glad I caught it before it became something chronic.

Despite the new year, the gym was as dead as ever.  Maybe everyone will show up next week but based on previous years, I don't expect the gym to be much busier.  One interesting surprise greeted me when I got to the gym.

Between 12/23 and 1/2/2015, someone broke the Smith Machine
I've never seen a Smith Machine broken in this way.  I'm curious as to what someone was doing that would've snapped the bar like that.  Anyways, just another one for the globo gym chronicles I guess.

Squats:  135x5, 135x5, 225x5, lowbar, 225x5, add belt, 315x5, 365x10, 365x10

Bench Press:  all reps touch and go, 135x5, 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 275x4, 275x4

Wide Grip chins:  5, 5, 5
