Entry #565

Couldn't lift yesterday. I had to walk to the post-office in the rain with a big package under my arm and my gym bag slung over my back, with the intent of lifting after dropping it off. Turns out I didn't bring enough money for the shipping (the fool at the counter told me that it would cost $8 last time, and to be safe, I brought $20; it was actually $22), so I had to walk back to return it home, and by that time, it was late. So yesterday's session was done today, and I'll forego a break in between (my routine has two days of ME, rest, then two days of DE) to lift tomorrow and Sunday, as I normally would.

Schedules are for wimps, anyways.

ME upper-body:

Bench press:
5 x 3     135, 185, 225, 255, 270 lbs.
3 x 1     290, 290, 295 lbs.
> Way easy. Went up much faster than 285 last week.

Skull crushers:
4 x 8     55 lb. dumbbells

Cable extensions:
2 x 8     150 lbs.
1 x 6     110 lbs. < Using the much harder lat pulldown station because some woman took my spot.
> That machine wasn't giving me a challenge with the entire stack, anyways, so it was a good thing I had to move.

Front raises:
3 x 16   40 lb. dumbbells

Lying dumbbell rows:
4 x 8     70 lb. dumbbells
> Much harder than the one-armed variation. No 115 lb. dumbbells here.

Preacher curls:
1 x 8     95 lbs.
1 x 5     95 lbs.
> Cut the rest periods short here because I was running low on time.

I'm due to meet up with Stan tomorrow at 11 for some sparring. I intend to be much more aggressive.

  1. Should've used your kung fu to beat up the fool at the counter and take his wallet
