Workouts of the week

This week I just pretty  much made up my workouts on the fly. I didn't do anything crazy heavy and kept everything short of failure. I decided to do the CrossFit workout on Saturday on a whim, which was mostly upper body, so that's why I ended up doing a leg day Wednesday and then a light, glute focused day on Friday instead of upper body.

It was fun doing something different this week, but I realized that after not doing more than 5 reps on the main lifts in 3 months, I'm like way out of shape. I squatted 235 last week, and this week 135 for 8 reps felt like 500 pounds! I suck at high reps!
