Wednesday: Today I dropped my littlest one off at middle school and headed straight to the gym for cardio on the newest treadmill. I was so naughty in that the gym had placed a 20 minute limit on the newest treadmill so everybody can have a turn, but nobody was waiting for me to get off, so I did my usual 30 minutes for 2.5 miles. It was nice outside and I took my bunny out to the garden and let him romp out there (stretching his legs) for half the day.
Headed for the gym right at 3 PM today as my son mumbled something about getting it over with so he can get back and get online/Halo3 and play with his friends. It was Back and Tricep day. I did all my PB pretty much after a warmup set. I then backed off and did the medium weights with the 15 rep range to pump the muscle up.
Cybex Back Row: 200/6, 187.5/8, 165/15
Lat Cable Pulldowns: 140/8, 120/12, 110/15
HyperExtension (lower back): 45lbs plate (new PB)/25
supersetted (4 sets) with
Machine Shrugs: 230/25, after 2 sets went back down to 180/25 (hands giving out)
Lat Pushdown: 50/8 (new PB, did 8reps instead of 6), 40/10, 30/12
Tricep Cable Pushdown with Rope: 130/8, 110/12, 100/15
Overhead Tricep Extension: 70/6 (my son helped me get started), 60/12, 50/15
Cybex-Assisted Machine Dips: this I did with my son and he was doing the usual set count, so we started with plate 8/15, plate 6/12, and plate 4/10 (my son did 8 because he hurt his wrist on the Tricep Rope Pushdown
I felt sorry for him, but not enough to not get the 2 more out. He just said "Next time, I'll beat you").
Very hungry last night, but I did not eat anything after my one portion of dinner (baby red potatoes, seiten hotdogs by the Grain Co., mushrooms, and kale, all fried/sauteed in a garlicky olive oil). I was rewarded with the scale telling me I was 166lbs this morning!!!
