Tonight was a very good training session. I have not been able to get into the gym as much this week due to a very busy work schedule. One of my motivational pieces for my meet in August is the picture above. I took first place in a WNPF meet this past September. I had not competed in a meet in the previous three years. I lifted in the 275lb. class. I plan on making the 242lb. class this August.
Squat: 2x10 bar, 1x10 95lbs., 1x10 135lbs., 1x5 185/225/275/275/275, 1x10 305lbs.-Still building up my volume
Barbell Shoulder Shrugs: 4x10 135/135/185/185
Band Good Morning: 1x10 Orange/2x10 Green
Front Plate Raises: 3x15 25lbs.
I learned tonight that I definitely need to buy clips and 45lb. plates. Having 305lbs. of bumpers on the bar almost takes up the whole collar.
Tonight I got a great training session in. I have not been able to get into the gym until after 8pm, when the man goes down for bed. On the bright side, I was able to take an old record player from my grandparents house. It still works just fine. I just need to stock up on some LP's and 8-tracks and we will be good to go.
Floor Bench: 2x10 bar, 1x10 95lbs., 3x10 135lbs.-Much better than last week
Green Band Assisted Pull-Ups: 6/6/4-Again better than last week
Bodyweight Push-Ups: 10/10/10/10
EZ Bar Bicep Curls: 1x10 bar+20lbs., 3x10 bar+50lbs.
Red Band Tricep Pushdowns: 3x15
EZ Bar Preacher Curls: 8/8/6 bar+30lbs.
All in all it was a good session.
