Rack pull Sunday

leave a comment »

Sunday is stay-home-and-train day. Managed a rack pull PB.

At the heaviest weight I’ve ever been. It’s good for strength progressing. However the belly fat bothers me. It’s hard to get rid of. When I cut down on calories, I feel like the chest and arms get smaller faster than the stomach does, and that’s rather annoying.

During the down time, YouTube is my current entertainment of choice. Been following world chess championship 2016. Watched tape of last two games for hours this weekend. It came down to the final deciding game between Carlsen and Karjakin. As a casual player, chess at the top level is really fascinating.
