I was glad to be back in the gym this morning to lift. With it being summer and not really working anymore I feel like I haven’t got much else to do. Though I should enjoy it since school starts next week.
This morning was bench presses + a couple accessory exercises.
BB Bench Press: 65lbs 3×5 <—back to where I was before I left for vacation. Going to get more reps next time, and hopefully will have a spotter.
DB incline bench press: 20lbs x 9, 9, 8, 8 <—increased weight from 15lbs to 20lbs and still hit pretty much the same reps. Very pleased! May have to increase again next week and do lower reps for strength.
BB military press: 45lbs x 5, 6, 7, 5 <— arms were pretty beat and after doing just 5 reps on my first sets I was determined to push for more to do better than last week.
Tricep cable pushdown: 25lbs x 20, 15 <— increase!
I think benching twice per week is helping (or going to) help bring up my bench.
Really pleased with today’s workout. Hoping this is the sign of a good lifting week to come. Tomorrow will be squats and I’ll move up to the big plates (yay!) and going for 135lbs 3×5.
How’s your week starting off? See you next time with some food and more lifting stuff. I’m still loving IF, and thinking about doing a post on it.
