Well it's 11:47. I managed to find 1,000,000 things to do tonight and my workout kept getting pushed back. But, it's done now! WOW did I punish myself! lol
I upped weights on the dumbbell press and it felt GREAT
17.5 (per dumbell) x 12
20 x 10
22.5 x 8
25 x 6
22.5 x 12
then when I went to do flyes I was thinking "I normally do these with my 12.5lb dumbells but I'm going to use my adjustable weights so I can go a little heavier" I remembered that the bar and collars weigh 3.5 lbs i figured I could put 10 lbs on it and it would be just a little heavier then my normal 12.5... (confused yet?) So I looked at 10 printed on the side of the weight and went.. "yeah, that's about right". It wasn't until I was at rep 6 that it finally clicked in my brain that there was a 10lb weight on EACH side of the dumbell and that added up to 20!! duh! It was punishment time! I managed all 12!!!! EVERY part of my upper body was shaking by the time I was finished with that set!
Onto back and I did bent rows... after a punshing chest workout what do I do? Up my weights here too!!
15 x 12
17.5 x 10
20 x 8
22.5 x 6
20 x 12
and bent flyes - this time I just used my 12 lb weights... I had already learned my lesson from earlier and I was still hurting...
12 x 12
Shoulders were pretty much uneventful - My shoulders are still piddly *** weak! lol Side laterals at PUNNY weights..
2.5 x 12
5 x 10
7.5 x 8
10 x 6
7.5 x 12
Front raises - well I should drop the weight I guess - I did 12 and put EVERYTHING I had into them, but could only raise the weight about 1/4 of the way up..
7.5 x 12
Briceps I'm still FIGHTING my left arm. I could probably go up on my right but my left really struggles. I'm glad I'm using dumbbells or it would be WAY too easy to cheet on these...
7.5 x 12
10 x 10
12.5 x 8
15 x 6
12.5 x 12
Hammer curls to finish things off and REALLY make me suffer... I actually whimper though these!
12 x 12
Triceps - workout's almost finished! My biceps burn.. shoulders are freid, my chest mucles are SHAKING...
10 x 12
again had a 'blond moment' and for some reason stuck 5 lbs on the dumbell instead of 2.5 which is my NORMAL increment - so I ended up upping the weights on tricpes TOO.
17.5 x 8
20 x 6
17.5 x 12
Then I did my FIRST set of dips. Granted it was a VERY low (step stool) 'bench' but I did 'em!
12 of them..
It feels SO good to be working out again.. though I hurt.. and I know I will continue to hurt tomorrow!
Got the cranberry sauce, cranberry chutney, and pie crusts made tonight... no taisting either.... diets on plan!!!
