Yesterday was an off day. Took a long Sunday nap, and the sun was shining on me when I awoke (I love that!
Chest and Bicep Day: Have to go early since I will be running with the kids around the track, and the 8th grade Christmas concert is tonight (son plays clarinet). Nice crowd in the gym at this hour, they all came in and went right to work and no long talking conversations going on (which is good for me since I usually start them
Hammer Strength Wide Chest Press: 90/25warmup, 180/15, 200/10, and 230/6 (had to do one more than last time, but it was an all out maximum effort to get it to go up. definitely ripped a muscle fiber on that one).
Cybex Flyes: 90/15 (this was an oops!
it was suppose to be 80/15 but I noticed it after I had done it already and was moving it down for the next set. One way to move the weights up/when I had a partner she would do this to me all the time! she was great that way), 100/8 (three more than last time).
Incline #3 Smith Press: 80/15, 90/8, lets push it with the little 2 1/2 lbs weights-95/7.
Cable Flyes: 50/10, 60/8 (way bent over on these, otherwise I wouldn't be able to do them after all the inclines).
Life Fitness Dumbbell Grip Chest Press: 105/11, 120/8 (same as last time/ more solid this time on the execution)
EZ bar Curl: 20/15, 30/12, and a new one 35/8 (40 here I come!)
Dumbbell Hammer Curl: 25/15, 30/ 10, and 35/6 (one more than last time and it was a little rocking motion on the upswing to get it up there-cheated just a little
Cable Curl: 110/8, 120/6 (these hurt, but stricted form than last time)
Overhead Curl: 4/15, 5/10, 6/6 (no decending sets this time. 1/2 second contraction peak on these, pretended I was doing the front double bicep pose with the fists touching my ears for the peak contraction).
Plan to do maybe 20 times around the gym track with the kids for around 20 minutes of cardio (20 minutes this week is the plan). Well, still have to do the breakfast dishes since I made lemon blueberry scones this morning for everybody (had one left for an after workout snack! yum
!! two more weeks of eating with Sucanat/sugar before the sugarless cutting diet takes over).
