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
