Cheap Workout Sunday Report 9

Not much to say today, my accomplishments were good, but hard and heavy for me.  We’ll see next week how it goes.

  • Bench:
    • 45 lbs –   Truly a warmup set now.
    • 135 lbs – 8 reps, this is pretty much a warmup set now too.
    • 185 lbs –  8 reps (not too bad, pretty easy).
    • 205 lbs –  9 reps (met my goal, but tired for 10 and failed… but still good)
    • 225 lbs –  3 rep (I got three reps, but the third one was really hard!)
    • 165 lbs – warm down set (8 reps, very easy.)
  • Curls (I’ve decided to take it easy with curling, no rush)

    • 25 lbs – for 8 reps
    • 35 lbs – for 8 reps
    • 45 lbs – for 8 reps. (my left arm is weaker than my right arm.)
  • Rows (wimped out here too)

    • 135 lbs – 1 set of 8 reps,
    • 155 lbs – 1 set of 6 reps.
  • No weight squats
    • 2 set of no weight squats for 10 reps each.  Much easier today than previously.
  • Goals
    • I continue to grow stronger, and while I’m pretty sure I could get 250 if I tried, I would like to get 225 for 4 or 5 reps first.  It will be a bit harder than I thought I would be.  We’ll see…
    • My weight loss has stopped.

It was a good week overall, I made new gains in both the upper weight classes in bench, so this week was very good!

I actually felt good today!  No major joint or muscle pains! This week I wasn’t looking forwards to working out so I started it later in the day than I would have liked to.  I’m not entirely sure if I want to continue this next year, but I definitely want to continue it until the…Continue Reading

I’m back on my Sunday schedule.  Actually I skipped working out in the middle of the week so I was pretty fresh today! While I’m not a big football fan, I have followed my local area team to use it as motivation.  Sometimes watching your team win energizes you, must like a movie or an…Continue Reading

This was a weird session today!  I felt tired and did everything wrong before lifting.  I ate some food, laid down and watched TV before lifting, falling to sleep in the process…  I woke up groggy and dreaded working out even.  Starting, I even thought to my self that my heaviest bench press was going…Continue Reading

Okay, I slipped again to Monday instead of Sunday as I normally would.  I was feeling various aches and pains in my pecs and shoulders, so I decided to give my body extra time to recover.  Currently, I’m doing all major body muscles on the same days and it’s taking it’s toll on my body. …Continue Reading
