Today's Chest and Biceps workout was going to be an epic failure, I thought. I was still so physically exhausted from yesterday's Leg day, and my eating routine was off by the company's party (learned that the Naan bread has butter brushed on it, and that my Chana Marsala probably had a dollop of cream in the sauce! My tummy hurt all the way back home! I do not even want to think that my Veggie Samosas had some dairy in it somewhere - it was bad enough being deep fried! though my tummy didn't hurt with those). But a 10 minute warmup on the elliptical and my Vega Pre-Workout with the CEE in it, got me motivated! Even when a group of 3 guys were on our machines before us, and we had to wait for them to finish their 5 sets for each of them. Ugh!
Machine Chest Flyes: did a number of 25 reps to warm-up to (60, 75, 90), then did 120/15 (stopping at 15 reps to save energy up for the heaviest), 135/12, 150/10, and a new PB of 160/5+3 (help from my partner)
(we also had to wait around so I was at the corner StarTrac cable station and did cable flyes at chest height cables - 30/25, 40/15, and 50/10)
-we usually do Smith Press Incline Chest Press - but the guys were on it for the longest time (they did shrugs, and then Shoulder Presses), so we skipped to the next one -
Chest Machine Press with Vertical Grip: 90/25, 120/18, 135/15, 150/12, and a new one mistakenly 170/5~3 (my partner left her 5lbs black rectangle on from her set, so my 165 was actually 170! Cooley O!)
then onto the Smith Press Incline Chest Press: 70/15 (solid, saving the energy), 90/15, 110/10+2, and then I forced myself to do my PB of 120/8+2 (it was hard to do my PB because of the new PBs on the other two exercises first - my Chest is getting to failure)
Hammer Strength #1 (the hard one to do) Chest Press: 90/15, 110/8~2 (PB was 110/8+2, so just need to make it a solid 10 rep).
(Running out of energy at this point. Laid down on the couch by the office, and had my protein drink that I usually have at the end of the workout. . . hoping it would give me some energy to do Biceps next)
Max Rack Barbell Curl: 10/25 (hard at first, then my ligaments around my elbow eye got warmed up), 30/15, 40/12, and a new PB of 50/4~3 (so hard, and I had to rock for the ~3 to get it up, and then slowly let it go back down -eccentric contraction)
Hammer Curls: get it over with - 35/15 and then a new PB of 40/8
(felt like dying here. but I have only one more exercise to do . . .)
Cable Bicep Curl (Both of the arms curl at a 45 degree angle from midline, elbows in): get it over with - 40/10, 60/6
so tired, but my partner was doing Lateral Bicep Cable Curls, so I did her weights of 40/15 for 3 sets, and then called it quits.
I can't wait for Rest day tomorrow!!!!!! Just like I can't wait to go to sleep tonight and make this fatigue pain go away! And if the pain isn't gone by tommorrow morning, then I am going to stay in bed till it does! Well. . . I guess I will get up just for my feeding times
