HRV time. I’m hoping for a PR. Fingers crossed.
HRV has decreased. Recommendation: go light toddy.
Can you go light on a workout named RAGNAROK? Nope… Oh well.
10am – Ragnarok O’Clock
Tayler and I give an analysis of how we felt prior to the training session. His joints and triceps hurt. My joints felt great! My muscles, not so much. We went through our general warmup, mental prep, fist bump, and started the clock.
I tore through squats and RDLs today like a diesel powered combine. It was awesome! Step ups were next. I Fracking hate step ups now. At this point in the lift your whole posterior chain is so tight each rep is worse than a terrible waxing experience..
Following that death sentence of step ups with bench press will make any glass look half empty. This was a new kind of burn. As I drive up each rep its as if hot liquid is being poured from the bar down into my chest. I had to overcome this annoying distraction. My mind drifted to some more Iron Poetry.

Lat pulldown on deck. This has to be my favorite part of Ragnarok. I can go real hard on this lift and not feel like death. I can do this all day!
Push press next. What jerk decided to put a total body movement mid lift? I can't feel my face. 1 set down and I forgot math again. Tayler did too. We ended up changing the weight more times than people have answers to this question.
What is 3-3x6+2?
For the record, the answer is -13. Can we please stop arguing about this on Facebook?
Sorry, stepping off of my soap box…
Seated row, triceps extensions, and barbell curls rounded of this lift nicely. Finished all sets and reps today. Ain’t nothing but a peanut!
Exposure 4... I'm coming for you!
Thought of the Day:
The saying "fake it till you make it" applies quite literally to falling asleep.
