Workout #59 (Lower body w/Bernard)

Just back from my workout with Bernard and it was a record-setting workout as you will see. And if you don’t believe what you see, well, either do I, but it’s true. I have witnesses. Plus, I can barely walk.

Group 3                1st Set      2nd Set      3rd Set
-------                -------      -------      -------
Bosu crunches             30LR         30LR         30LR
Leg extension            15/75        15/90        15/90

In case it wasn’t clear, the leg press set at 360 lbs was a record for me. My best, prior to today was 250 lbs. so I blew that old record away. Bernard said he wanted to show me what I was capable of by upping it a notch. The bosu crunches were tougher too because I sat farther back on the bosu and so had farther to climb to complete a crunch. All-in-all, it was a tough workout, but a good one.

My next workout with Bernard is in one week. And I’ve got a cardio workout tomorrow morning.
