Workout #2 (Chest/back)

Up at 4 AM and after a breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast, I headed to the gym at 4:50.  I got in a full strength workout, including the usual 5 minutes of cardio warm-ups.  I'm starting back at the beginning, not trying to overdo things and not trying to strain myself.  I did a total of 12,180 lbs this morning working chest and back.  Mixed in were nearly 100 crunches of various types.  Felt good once again to get the workout done early and have it out of the way for the rest of the day, especially since the weather has turned nasty with freezing rain and snow expected today and tomorrow.
