- Week 425, Day 1111
Barbell Bench Press = 252 lbs = 4
Bench Press Partials = 225 NitroFlex = 4/4/4/4
Barbell Seated Military Press = 152 lbs = 5/5/5/4
Kickbacks = 84 lbs (per arm) = 10/10/10
Well that was my last workout till I am able to again. Finished at 1,111 work outs ... that is a feat in itself.
For the past weeks I have been decreasing the amount of calories I've been taking in by cutting out some extra meals and reducing the amount I'm actually eating. This is in preparation for my surgery as I won't be working out and I wanted my body to gradually get used to not eating all of that extra food. In the last 1.5+ weeks I've lost 5 lbs and I've noticed it in my workouts as I'm finding things much harder.
One big kick at the cat so up the Bench Press 5 lbs. Tough but got it out. Goal when getting back it to increase this ... not like I'm not already trying.
Military Press I really put in the effort to get it done but only got 4 sets as the last one my neck was getting sore and today I can really feel it; not good. Was impressed how I pushed the 3rd set to get the 5th one ... pure stubbornness. Finished off with my favorite exercise and I did it proud.Thursday, December 14, 2006
Had a poor sleep last night. Nose was stuffy, didn't go to bed till 2:00 AM, woke up repeatedly, saw something down the hallway that scared me (stress related) and my wife said I snored because my nose was plugged. I knew this as well as if I snore I wake up immediately as I'm a light sleeper. Woke up cranky and got to work a few minutes late. Calmed down now but not a good start.
Phone today at 2:30 to see when the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. Will go to class tonight which will be my last for a while. Probably won't be on the boards as much but will try to check back when I can to see what is up. Everything is in exceptional hands with Cord. Take care all and have a good Christmas and New Years ... or December break.
