Monday, January 22 – Friday, January 26

Barely found time

This was one tough week at my main job. It was a tough work cycle, which is odd in a way because it was the second week of the 2-week cycle and usually the second week is easier. Not now, and I’m actually not sure why.  I was able to make it to the gym on Monday and Friday evenings, with two relatively decent sessions: leg work on Monday, upper body work on Friday. I know I should have done squats or deadlifts for leg work, but I just didn’t have the urge and did machine stuff instead. Leg presses, extensions, curls, the usual suspects.

After a rather dull shift at the Major Home Improvement Retailer on Wednesday evening, I returned to the gym on Thursday for some bench presses and auxiliary work. It went surprisingly well. After getting started with 6 x 135, 6 x 165, 6 x 185, 4 x 205, I managed 3 x 225, 2 x 2 x 225, 1 x 225. My first triple in a while. After the 225’s I finished with 4 x 205, 6 x 185. I then did pec deck flies, 4 x 8 x 145, and finished with dumbbell French presses, 4 x 8 x 55. An increase of five pounds on the French presses from last time.
