I have never had watermelon and apple juice combined. Is it really good?

I was suprised that I didn't like it, the smell wasn't even that good.
Next time I get an extra seedy watermelon, I'll juice it by itself.

Squat Night:
Made my 50 reps squatting 165 pounds.
That was very difficult
In a few days I'll see how many reps I can get with 225

Morning Workout: Bench Press

Same weights as last time, just going for more reps.

Warmup
10 x 20 DBs
8 x 40 DBs
5 x 135 BB

Workout
170# x 9 (+1) I tried for a 10th rep, but it didn't happen. Next time I'll get it.
175# x 6 (+1) May have had enough left for one more.
175# x 6 (+1) No chance of one more.
175# x 6 (+1) Last one went up slow.
175# x 5 (+1) Another slow final rep.

Final count: 5 more reps than last time.

I took 5 minutes between sets.
My DVD player had Joe Satriani's Summer Song on a loop.
I had to watch the song.

Afternoon Treadmill: 60 minutes, 3mph, 10 incline

Evening Workout: EZ Arm Night
BB bicep curls, butt and shoulders against wall
New style so I didn't have a reference yet
60 x 10
70 x 10
75 x 8
Looks like 75 will be my starting point

DB preacher hammer curls
30 x 10
30 x 10

BB Wrist Curl - adding 5# to forward curls tonight
80 x 10
40 x 10 reversed
80 x 9
40 x 10 reversed
80 x 8
40 x 10 reversed
Will raise the weight next time on reverse

Evening Treadmill: 30 minutes, 3 mph, 10 incline


My legs are still worthless from Friday nights squatting.

Breakfast: 2 bananas

Morning Inclined Treadmill: 40 minutes

Eats:
2 oranges, banana, fruit smoothie, peanuts, another banana, watermelon
No veggies today, should probably fix that tomorrow

Evening Inclined Treadmill: 60 minutes

No lifting tonight, just treadmill.
My legs are feeling a little better today, the soreness has moved to my pecs.
As soon as my legs feel ready, I'll squat 225 again to see how many reps I can get.
Hopefully more than 10.
20 would be great, but I'm not expecting that many.

Breakfast: 2 bananas

Morning Inclined Treadmill: 50 minutes, 3 mph, 11 incline

Eats: banana, rice and veggies, watermelon

Evening Workout:Squat Night didn't go as planned.
The second rep at 225 was very hard and a bit painful. So I stopped.
I did warmups and acclimation sets working up to 225, so I'm confused.
Maybe I need a break from these high rep sets.

Evening Inclined Treadmill: 30 minutes, 3.3 mph, 7 incline
I could feel the slight pain in the side of my thigh while treadmilling
So I lowered the incline and raised the speed.
That seemed to help.
