TGIF and it’s bench day to boot. *tired happy dance*
Squat, bench and OHP on the agenda for today. Bench and OHP are not supposed to be on the same day, but I swapped OHP and rows last time so I get double presses today. My arms and chest are toast. Squat went better than I expected, though I didn’t bump the weight up from last time. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do 5×5 either, but it turned out okay and I powered through.
I tried to do my bench warmups like Jen Thompson, with a little somethin’ under my lower back to stretch out the spine and get more arch. All I could find was a small medicine ball and it was really too big and my lower back feels a little crunchy now. This workout also took approximately forever, despite half-assing my warmups.
Squat – 2x5x45lb (warmup), 5x5x135lb
Bench – 2x5x45lb (warmup), 5x5x110lb
OHP – 5x5x65lb
Bonus – biceps, delt raises, lat PDs (no triceps, thanks double presses)
I didn’t blog yesterday due to work crazy but I did a very easy 30 minutes on the elliptical just to justify taking a shower at the gym. That’s a good portion of my motivation to work out most days…
