Workout 09/28/14: Gym Time

I had planned on hitting the gym on Saturday morning, A) because they open much earlier on Saturday than Sunday and B) because I hadn’t been in the gym since Wednesday so it was time.

What I didn’t take into consideration was that Thor did not want to let me and Mrs. Kenobi sleep!

Good times…

I don’t like going to the gym drained of all energy. Especially when trying to lift heavy. I don’t mind going sore, but totally drained is another thing!

Daredevil went with me and took on the bouldering area whilst I threw the iron around, or at least attempted to throw it around. Today’s session was as follows:

Deadlifts:  Bar (45lbs) x10 x1, 135lbs x5 x1, 155lbs x5 x1, 175lbs x5 x3

Bench Press: Bar x10 x1, 115lbs x5 x1, 135lbs x5 x1, 145lbs x5 x2, 155lbs x 2 x 1 (I had a spotter and attempted 5 reps, I struggled but successfully pressed the 2nd rep, I failed about 1/4 of the way up on the 3rd rep and the spotter helped me get it back up)

The squat rack was being used, so I switched the workout around and did…

Lat Pull Downs:  95lbs x 5 x 1, 110lbs x 5 x 1, 125lbs x 5 x 2, 140lbs x 5 x 1.  I chose to do Lat Pull Downs instead of pulls because I worked that pretty hard on Wednesday and I could still feel a tenderness in the tendons and didn’t want to push them too hard.

Squats: Bar x10 x1, 75lbs x5 x1, 95lbs x5 x1, 105lbs x5 x3  – Squats are feeling better each time. I’m glad I backed off the weight and started working back up. I think two more sessions working form and execution with these reps and I should move up to either 110 or 115lbs for my work sets.

DONE and feeling good! I went over to the bouldering area for a few minutes with Daredevil and played around before I did my cool down stretches. Bouldering is harder than it looks but I’m glad Daredevil was with me.

Be strong for you.

Be Strong 4 Family.
