Wednesday chest/back workout

I did my workout a little early yesterday, 11 AM, because of lunchtime meetings. I did about 1/2 a full workout primarily because I started to feel light-headed during the second group and didn’t want to push things. I was hard-pressed to understand why I was light-headed, but I think it was because of the decline chest presses. I think I lay there too long resting and letting the blood flow to my head and then immediately went into 80 lbs dead lifts.

Anyway, I did just over 10,000 lbs of lifting today, which is not too bad for half a workout. On my first set of level chest press, I did 8 reps at 115 lbs, which is also pretty good for me getting back into the swing of things.
