About that deadlifting …

So predictable. After my grand return to deadlifting I didn’t do any more during this week. I wanted to, I really did, but with the busy season at the Major Home Improvement Retailer in full swing I’m just too enervated for such a taxing exercise. On Wednesday the 2nd I worked an excruciating 4:30 to 11pm after a typical seven hour day at my main job.   The next day I didn’t have the MHIR but was too wiped out for the gym. Friday I was able to make it to the gym but just didn’t have the energy to deadlift. As for Saturday and Sunday, not only did I work eight hours each day but I started at the ghastly hour of 5am on Saturday. Ick. Sunday was a slightly more tolerable but still too-early 7am start.

Which isn’t to say that I did nothing at the gym. I made it there three times in this time period, and while I didn’t deadlift I was able to do some decent upper-body work. Because of some lingering shoulder soreness I’ve stayed away from bench presses in favor of a decline press machine. I know, machines < free weights, but I’d rather use a machine that doesn’t cause any significant pain. I’m not a masochist.

In any event, I have two weeks off from both jobs at the end of May, we’re going to Vermont for four days and the rest of the time I’ll just give myself a much-deserved break from all the hours I’ve been working. Definitely no excuse not to deadlift.
