The other perfect workout


  • Warmup: 5 minutes or so on C2 rower
  • Front squats: 5×5, Olympic style, ass to ground
  • Dips: 5×5, starting from the bottom
  • Deadlifts: 5,5,5,3,3, increasing weight each set

Finished the day with some light Cuban rotations to keep my rotator cuffs healthy.

    The exercises at the Cuban rotation link bear a striking (but not too surprising) similarity to the work I did in rehab after my rotator cuff surgery. I should probably keep some of that in my routine (after the next surgery, sigh) to keep my shoulders healthy.

      Yeah, I’m a bit obsessive about keeping my shoulders healthy — I had a close call when I started lifting free weights, and I’ve been paranoid (er, careful) ever since.

        Yeah – I am now reaping the consequences of a youth where I spent far too much time in (figurative) balls-to-the-wall pursuit of a series of athletic thrills without thinking about said consequences.

        My orthopod assures me that technology will prevail, but I’m still gonna do that diet and exercise thingy to hedge my bets.
