Week 2: Workout B

18 May

Week 2: 5/18/11

Today was a good day.
Woke up at 5AM, ate my Pre-workout meal of 1 serving WPI and 1 serving steel-cut oats. Arrived at the gym by 6AM ready to rock!
Good progression on Squats so far and today’s weights on the bench press and bent-over rows should have been my starting weights last week when I restarted lifting again.
Got back home and took my son to school, walked my dog and ate leftover 93% lean meatloaf and quinoa.
Life is good and now going to take a nap before my family comes back home and then graveyard shift at work later tonite.

Workout Notes:

Squats:


Squats felt good today.
Started feeling heavy on the last 2 sets.
Think my form is ok but I do think I need to hit the hole slower.

Bench Press:

Bench feel light today, probably due to dropping the weight to where I should have started last week.
Think everything was done right and it felt good.

Bent-over Rows:

This felt light also.
Just like the bench, this is the weight I should have started on last week.
Otherwise I think I did a good job on this one 😀

Dips:
Decent job but my right shoulder is acting up still.
i think I may need to do more stretches to loosen it up.

Reverse Crunch:
Didn’t feel as bad as last session.
Dropped them like its hot until the 3rd set where I had a 1 sec breather at the 8th rep.
