Entry #475

I'm down to 212. I've lost more than 20 lbs. That's not of much concern to me; I can bulk back up at my own choosing. What matters is strength.

Bench press:
2 X 15   45 lbs.
3 X 3     135, 185, 225 lbs.
1 X 2     245 lbs.
> This is the only lift that suffered, and suffer it did. Still, I'm not convinced it's from losing gains just yet. As I foresaw last entry, I was still sore coming into the session, and perhaps more importantly, there's much about the movement to become accustomed to once again. In any case, this number won't stay like that for long.

Overhead dumbbell press:
1 X 15   15 lb. dumbbells
1 X 10   45 lb. dumbbells
1 X 5     80 lb. dumbbells

Bent-over rows:
5 X 10   65, 135, 155, 155, 155 lbs.
> This dumb gym has two giant plates that look like 45's, but are actually hollow, plastic 10 pounders. It's funny to use them and add an entire wheel onto the bar for basically nothing.

Front raises:
3 X 12   25 lb. plates
> Substituting weight plates for dumbbells kills the forearms. I like it.

  1. You'll be back at the big numbers in no time.  My bench always suffers from form.

  2. My bench always suffers from it sucks.But I'm in the process of kicking its ass.
