Entry #362

ME upper~body

At this point, I've essentially regained what I lost when I cut weight, despite going into training hungry and worn out from prior bag work.

Bench press:
135 lbs., 12 reps
185 lbs., 8 reps
225 lbs., 5 reps
245 lbs., 3 reps
I've done 255 for reps before, but I was cautious of my ability here. Next week will see a definite increase.

Overhead dumbbell press:
30 lb. dumbbells, 12 reps
75 lb. dumbbells, 5 reps
70 lb. dumbbells, 5 reps

T~bar row:
115 lbs., 10 reps
90 lbs., 10 reps
70 lbs., 8 reps
45 lbs., 8 reps
My stamina drops extraordinarly fast on these. I don't have this issue with any other bent~over row variation, so it's likely a quirk of the machinery. I don't think I'll be returning to this.

Bent~over flyes:
35 lb. dumbbells, 12 reps
3 sets

Weighted decline crunches:
50 lbs. of plates, 10 reps
4 sets

  1. I seem to get the same problem with rows after a set or two.
