I’ve got a meeting in just a few so I’ll have to give you the cliff notes version today.
Yesterday ended fine – food was on track.
Didn’t want to get up today (what’s new?) I even hit snooze three times. The worse was that the fiancé wasn’t going to the gym this morning. That meant I had to do it ALL on my own. I did get up. Got my things together and made it. I had a run planned but just did NOT feel like it. For once I wasn’t up to fighting myself. It’ll have to happen tonight.
I did ROCK the weight room though. It’s chest day and I had a twelve week goal to press 80 lbs (plus the bar) for 10 reps. Well I’ve been working with my spotter and have hit that 80 lbs for 10 reps a few times but he’s always been ‘helping’. Today I lined up under the bar and went for it! No safety net – nothing! I wanted to do a happy dance when I gutted out 10 perfect reps! I swear I was grinning ear to ear.
THEN because I’m just a glutton like that – I added 5 lbs and did two more sets of 6 reps at 85!
Bench Press: 80 x 10 / 85 x 6 / 85 x 6
Next was dumbbell presses – again I’ve set myself a goal - Fifty pounds for 10 reps. I’m not nearly as close on this one – but then I always do dumbbell presses AFTER fatiguing the crap out of myself with the barbell presses – so maybe I’m closer then I think? Anyway – I did do 50 lbs it was HARD, but I did it.
DB Bench Press: 50 x 6 / 50 x 6 / 50 x 5
The rest of the workout was pretty typical
Decline Press (+ bar): 60 x 6
Cable Crunches: 195 x 15 / 195 x 15 / 195 x 15
And that’s that!
Oh wait – one more thing.
