Clearing off the dust on the bench

Wow. It’s been ages since I’ve been back on the bench. 2 years ago & not too long after the words, “Hi, is this John?”, I was told to stop hitting the weights. The man was right, they sure weren’t going to help me SBR better… SBR will.

Anyway, I followed the plan… but i do enjoy a good strength workout, so in the off season i do try and get back together with all the training tidbits I’ve accumulated pre-tri. Today I headed down into the training lab and cleared all the stuff that has been using the bench as a storage table and blew off a good coating of dust. It was fun doing it again and I’m again taking the advice of those who know better by taking off from SBR and doing things that are active, but different and enjoyable. So just a wee bit of chest and tri’s to humble myself and remember what past years with the weight rack were like.

It’s a bit of a side note, but I’ve also been paying a bit more attention to my diet after the unrestrained vacation that just occurred. This in turn has also made it feel more like a body building session as I am trying to tear down a few lbs just to stay in striking range of goal weight.
