Workout #69 (chest & back)

Up at 4:30 AM after getting a full night’s sleep last night. I was in bed before 7 PM and lights out by 8:30. I woke up having a bad dream when my alarm went off this morning, but otherwise had a good night’s sleep. I did have a stomach ache and when I got to the office, I struggled deciding whether or not I should go to the gym. I finally decided not to make excuses and went.

Group 1                1st Set      2nd Set      3rd Set

Group 2                1st Set      2nd Set      3rd Set
-------                -------      -------      -------
Decline chest press     12/115       12/115       10/115
Lat pull                 12/87        12/87       10/100
Jumping jacks               40           40           40

I only did two groups because I ran out of time (because I delayed heading to the gym with my stomach ache). But I am finally beginning to feel stronger. For the first time ever, I did a set of chest presses at 125 lbs. That was the third set after muscle fatigue had set in. I was very happy with that. It was a good workout.

Next workout is cardio tomorrow morning.
