A beautiful pre-Spring day here in central Texas.
Arguably the nicest season of the year in the Lone Star state doesn't officially arrive until next week, but, hey, close enough. Beautiful, clear blue sky, a little chill in the air as fall tries hard to hang on, but all in all, a great day for ... a workout.
I started out today with my low-bar routine, which was a little discouraging today. I thought I was making progress with this difficult core-strengthening exercise, but this morning, I wasn't so sure. Granted, I do the reps wearing 5-pound ankle weights, which makes it extra tough, but still ...
For the last rep, I took off the weights, and was able to control the movement pretty well, instead of my feet slamming down onto the ground.
Then, it was off to the gym, where I got in a nice hour-long workout -- treadmill to warm up, then a combination of free weights and machines.
One thing I typically try to do at the gym is set a new PR (personal record) in something each visit. Today, it was leg press. I did five sets, ending with four reps for 430 pounds.
Not bad for an old(er) guy.
What did you do today?
