Today’s workout was kickassy and tiring!
Pushups: 3 sets of 10 (please be advised: I could only do 5 nonstop before, I can now do 20 nonstop in good form!)
Walking Lunges: 3 sets of 8 with 20s in each hand
Bench Press: 3 sets of 12 with 16s in each hand
Shoulder Press: 1 set of 5 with 16s in each hand (hey, i tried) then 3 sets of 12 with 10s.
Wide-legged Deadlifts: 3 sets of 12 with 16s in each hand.
I can never feel deadlifts anywhere but in my lower back (i know that’s not a good thing, but it happens even with proper form, i dunno what it is) but I felt this in my butt and hams today… I guess the wide legged stance works for me.
Tricep Dips: 3 sets of 12 2 sets were at home, and then at the gym i tried the dips on the pullup machine…dear god, that’s a whole other animal! I used the “helper” weight at 40 to do a set there.
Full Squats: I did them with free weights today, my traps/shoulders are still red n sore from wednesday’s evil smith machine fiasco. 20s in each hand.
Pullups: 3 sets of 12 with the helper weight at 40lbs for all 3 sets 🙂 yay for improvement!
Hanging Abs: 2 sets of 20 Then I did some floor work abs….i forgot to count stuff
Calf Raises: 3 sets of 12, set 1 @ 90 and sets 2 and 3 at 130 (improvement!)
I did a 10 minute jog afterward and then came home to crash.
I’m proud of the work I’ve been doing in the gym. I’m getting more comfortable with my workouts. Oh, and I’ve been drinking a protein drink once a day, so at least I have a lil extra sumthin’sumthin’ protein-wise.
