Workout #2 (chest/back)

I’ve decided to restart my workout count, since there was a long enough gap between workouts to warrant starting from fresh, and since I am more focused now than I was before (I think). So yesterday’s workout was #1 which makes this mornings workout #2. I was up at 4:30 AM, had breakfast and then headed into work, and to the gym.

I have a new format for tracking this info and a little explanation is required for people who actually follow this. In each set the first number is the number of reps and the second number is the weight in pounds (yes, pounds!) In certain cases, the weight represents the weight in each hand. This is always the case with dumb bells. When you see 12/20, it means that I did 12 reps of 20 lbs in each hand (a total press of 40 lbs). Similarly for things like kicks backs, the 12/20LR means I did a set of 12 at 20 lbs, one set in the left arm, another set in the right arm.

I had planned another exercise group including dump bell flys, more crunches, and jump rope, but I ran out of time and had to get showered and into work.

I saw Bernard and we are scheduled for our next session a week from today at 4 PM. In the meantime, my next workout is tomorrow at 4 PM, cardio and one group of lower body in preparation for a full lower body workout on Thursday morning.
