Workout #18 (Chest & back)

I was in bed before 8 last night and I was up at 4:30 this morning and I felt pretty rested. The gym was empty this morning, and I had the entire weight room virtually to myself. I wish it was like that every morning, and I shudder to think what it’s going to be like one week from today.

The full set of chest presses at 100 lbs is a record for me and I felt pretty good about it. I also upped the weight on the cable cross and felt pretty good about completing that full set as well. I am definitely feeling stronger and not only that, but I am noticing some differences in the way my arms and shoulders look. Abs and chest need more work, I guess, or take longer for a difference to show up.

Cardio tomorrow morning and I have a workout with Bernard on Thursday afternoon.
