Afternoon off — so I could gym out
Oh gosh. What a crowd at the gym at 3 pm. I was not expecting that. It was a little annoying to have to wait for the machine, but I am so glad I went anyway! Soon, I have to be out drinking a beer or two, and if I miss some cardio today, I won’t feel nearly as bad.
But, my barbell squats suck. My back hurts, and I can’t go down enough. I can’t even squat down enough regularly. Maybe I just have to accept my bane of so many years and realize that my lower back is never going to be okay.
But! I did:
- Squats (# sets x weight x reps):
- 1 x 95 x 15
- 1 x 135 x 15
- 2 x 175 x 6
- 2 x 155 x 6
- Chest Presses (# sets x weight x reps):
- 1 x 105 x 15
- 1 x 125 x 12
- 2 x 135 x 5
- Body weight modified pull-up 4 sets x 8 reps
- Free motions rows 4 x 10 x 100
And that’s it. Including the 5 minute warm-up, that took me a good 45 minutes. Nothing too exuberant, but a good, overall body workout. I think I hit all the major muscles! And I’m really stinky. Ewwwwwwww….
Now, I need beer and my friends.
