Day 1 of Restore

Short half hour burst in the morning at 7 am.

  1. 60kg deadlifts
  2. Jump squats
  3. Burpees

Worked up a little sweat but still feeling out of it. Been at the laptop since 530am — fixing up a set of wireframes and editing a whitepaper. 

Looking to swim and do hang cleans later in the day.


Squats after knee and ankle injuries

It’s been a painful expensive month. I’ve jacked up my back with deadlifts and strained my right knee and ankle playing basketball. 

Squat weight at 60kg in total

It was quite harrowing. I landed normally, in a lunge position. But it buckled and collapsed under me. 

The good thing is that there isn’t any structural damage but my ligaments feel sore even til now.

Regardless, I need to exercise. I look and feel like flab. For this week, its big movements every day.

I’ll be doing this workout:

  1. Squat or deadlift
  2. Jump rope
  3. Lunge jumps
  4. Benches or shoulder presses
  5. Rows

Where possible, I’ll include dips and pull ups at the nearby fitness park.
