e) weighted ab-mat sit-ups + oblique hinges [both sides]
  • 15 sit-ups + 8 hinges
  • 15 sit-ups + 8 hinges
  • 15 sit-ups + 6 hinges
a few notes from today: i ended with 6 hinges because my son was pushing his toy car straight toward someone on the rowing machine - he thought he was fooling his mama. he's completely fixated on that rower, and i knew it wouldn't end well, so i made the strategic decision to abandon my hinges and scoop up mister curious. for those wondering, the little man goes to the gym with me and is constantly monitored by either me or my coach, so he's probably safer on those black rubber mats than than he is at home, surrounded by looming bookshelves filled with judaica and medical tomes + a giant, goofy dog who has no self-awareness.  

ALSO: i love heavy-lifting day. i know that 155 isn't "heavy" for people who have been training for longer than i have [and for some people who just waltz right in and rock the barbell], but it feels really good to see the weight plates stack up. i celebrated tonight with an extra iced tea and some jinji's chocolate - because tomorrow i'm back at it with conditioning.
