Workout #87 (Arms and shoulders)

So I was going to get up at 4:30 and be into the gym bright and early this morning, but I got to bed a little bit later than planned and decided to sleep in until 5:30 and go to the gym at lunch today. I did get to the gym at lunch, and while I didn’t quite get a full strength workout in, I did pretty well. I decided to do an arms and shoulders workout because, with my erratic schedule of late, I hadn’t done one since March 24!

Group 2                    1st Set      2nd Set      3rd Set
-------                    -------      -------      -------
Reverse flys               12/15LR      12/15LR          N/A
Front raises               12/20LR      12/20LR          N/A
Bicep curls                12/25LR      12/25LR          N/A

Even thought it wasn’t a full workout, I did good. The last full set of shoulder presses I did with 30 lbs in each hand, which is a record for me. I think I’m kicking it up to that from now on. And the bicep curls at 25 lbs is also a step up for me. So I made some progress after all.

I’m working from home tomorrow so I don’t think I’ll make it in the gym. And then I’m heading up to New York for the weekend for Norm and Vicky’s church wedding and I probably won’t have time to workout there, so it’s a good thing I got these workouts in this week.
