One of those lost nights…

12 x 110
12 x 110
10 x 120
8   x 130
8   x 130
10 x 120

Inbetween each set did horizontal ring pull-ups and then a set of sit-ups on the roman chair.

Rest Day? We don’t need no stinking rest day!

Actually, just wanted to work on some of my weak areas… which is like… all of them.   =)

Warm up with a 1k row, 3:56. Sub 4 minute, I’ll take it.

Bench Press:
10×100
8×115
6×135
4×155
8×115

40 pull-ups
20 GHD sit-ups

Cooled down by running a mile, 10:21. That’s 3:38 off my time from yesterday. To bad I can’t keep progressing at that pace. I’d be doing sub 4 minute miles by the weekend!

Ok, this back injury is getting really old, or maybe it’s me that’s getting old or a little of both. I need to start doing some dead-lifts or I may die. It’s a well known fact that lack of dead-lifting will and can result in spontaneous obesity and a subsequent long slow death caused by lack of blood flow to the mid-lumbar region.

Bench Press
-2×12 @105#
-2×10 @110#
-2×8  @115#
-1×10 @110#

Pull-ups to max x2

Dumbbell Incline Press 4×10 30, 40, 50, 60 (each arm)

Ok, time to get back in the swing of things. How about a little free weight action? Nothing like pumping a little iron to get the blood flowing, even if it is only a 5# dumbbell.

The routine went something like this:

Bench Press 145# 3×3
10 Pull-ups
Incline Dumbbell Press 5×10 50# each arm
12 Pull-ups
30 Push-ups
Dumbbell Rows 3×10 50# each arm

Slow Start

Got back in the gym last night for a very light workout. I had been very hit and miss for the last couple of months, but am hoping that this is the beginning of a more regular routine.

Rowed 1500m, 6 minutes flat.

Bench Press 190 routine.
