A Whale of a Workout [Day 7]


Today is a big day for this little adventure. I’ve officially passed the 50% mark for the Antarctic Minke. I’ve lifted just under 2.5 tons total in the last 7 days. I don’t know what my previous weight lifting amounts were like. But I’m pretty happy with this. It looks like the upper limit before my arms start shaking uncontrollably is 60 presses. I’m a fairly small fella. Not really embarrassed about the starting point. If I raise the weight of each dumbbell from 22.5 to 25 I could get the same number of lifts in 54 lifts rather than 60. That said, I wonder how difficult that would be.

It seems to me that a good strategy currently would be to split up my lifting in the morning and then at night. Or perhaps at lunch and then at night. Additionally if I did more than half as many each time I could increase my overall lifting per day. Who knows, it might even help wake me up each day.

Not much else to say. I had some terrible food poisoning (or something) yesterday. ended up sleeping through most of the day and having no energy. But I’m back on track. For anyone that likes seeing the trend line and my current progress here comes that tidbit.

Trend line obviously adjusts with each passing day but I like to see where I could end up on any given day if I maintained.
