I had a lunch time strength training session at the gym today, chest and back, and I got in a full workout without feeling like I was going to pass out. Actually, it was my best workout since getting back into things.
Rather than bore people with the clinical details of my workouts, as I had in the past, I’m going to summarize my strength training workouts by the total weight lifted for the workout (number of reps time weight). I keep this in a log and it is easy to report. It is also easy to compare one session to another this way. So, to catch you all up, here are the totals for my first four strength training workouts since last Monday:
Date Workout Type Total Weight (lbs) ---------- --------------- ------------------ 09/17/2007 Chest/back 11,335 09/19/2007 Lower body 15,240 09/21/2007 Arms/shoulders 5,400 09/24/2007 Chest/back 17,535
So from this you can see that I improved dramatically between my first and second chest and back session, from a total of 11,335 lbs to 17,535 lbs. Anyway, going forward, I’ll just report the one line (and of course, mention if it turns out to be a “best ever”.)
