Thirteen pushups in a row with my hands elevated on the weight bench. I creep ever closer to the elusive push up from the floor.
I also did some messing around with power cleans for the first time in a while. I think I probably need to ask my trainer for some pointers on technique. I can clean 65lbs. fairly easily, but I'm not comfortable putting more weight on the bar until I'm more confident of my form.
As I was leaving the gym, I overheard this conversation between my trainer and another client.
Client: Trainer, I have to confess! I had half a bagel this morning.
Trainer: That's good. That means you had some carbs.
This is part of the reason why I train with this trainer, and not the dude who goes around telling people not to eat carrots because they have "too much sugar".
