Entry #108
Legs have been sore since Sunday. Having trouble walking, and when I
try a staircase I resemble a cancerous old man. George's first comment
to me this morning at school: "God dammit, you and your squat workouts,
I couldn't go to Tae Kwon Do yesterday because I'm so sore." You're
welcome, George.

I did chest and tris today. I managed 195 pounds with 8 reps pretty
easily on flat bench press. Giant Ryan was spotting me again. He
commented that I'm lifting stronger than last time. Well, he roared it
in my face.

Bench press: 195 pounds, 8, 8, 6, 5, 5 reps

Dumbbell flys: 40 pound dumbbells, 4 sets 8 reps

Incline bench press: 135 pounds,  3 sets 5 reps (Was so tired I
was only able to do 5 reps on what I usually use for warm-up)

Tricep pushdowns: 70 pounds, 4 sets 8 reps

Dips: 3 sets 6 reps

Overhead dumbbell extension: 55 pound dumbbell, 3 sets 8 reps




  1. No, I did better than expected on 195 for bench press, and so my trainer made me do 8 reps. Gonna raise the weight more next Tuesday.

  2. What routine are you on then? That's way different than the strength training one you started earlier...

  3. I'm on the same one. Most of the exercise are in there for chest day. It's just my trainer saw me looking over my little index card that has the routine on it, and he roared in my face and told me what to do for the day. He's a real bastard. Really strong, so he knows his stuff, but I'll stick with my way next time.
