Last night I setup my membership for a new gym. I lifted for about an hour an half, doing mostly upper body stuff. I felt very weak, and my shoulders are still very tight so I'll have to be very careful in the beginnings. I focused a lot more on form and going slow. So sore today, but I love the soreness. I missed it. Body wise I looked in the mirror this morning and felt I looked a lot better. I was already down 2 pounds from eating clean, and working out yesterday.
I did a lot better on flat bench compared to incline. Due to the shoulders I'd imagine. During my peak, I was flat benching 285 for 5 reps and inclining 245 for 6 reps. I don't max out, the lowest I usually go with reps is 3. So I'll probably never be posting those numbers.
The embarrassing numbers from last night.
140- 4 sets of 6. Like I said shoulders still kinda tight. Joints hurt, which was an effect of the pinched nerve between the shoulder blade. Going to look into something for joint pain/functionality. Anyone tried Super Cissus RX?
Flat Bench DB Press
70s - 4 sets of 6
Also did some back work, dips, and weighted ab crunches. I usually don't waste my time doing a lot of ab stuff. I find that weighted crunches/side bends are the best way to develop the midsection. Was going to run this morning, but woke up to 3 inches of snow. If it keeps it up I'll have to do it Rocky 4 style. I actually keep my daughter on weekends( fri, sat, and sun nights- long story for another post)....but maybe I'll get someone to watch her for a few hours this weekend so I can get some work/running in.
Will be posting some new pics up my Friday. If I can lose 5 pounds the first week I'd be happy, if so I'm sure a lot of it would be water weight, and maybe a pound or so of gooey fat. :)
