Ow, dammit

While climbing onto the weight machine last night to do lat pulldowns, I managed to bang my knee on the leg press. Naturally, the bruise is RIGHT where my armored pants press into my leg while on the motorcycle. Sigh. It really is a miracle that my hobbies haven’t killed me yet.

I bench pressed 80 lbs last night, though, which is a personal best. Perhapy wimpy to the big burly men in the audience, but that’s 2/3 my body weight. 🙂

Yesterday’s workout:

Chest: Bench Press
Set 1: 5 @ 60 lbs
Set 2: 3 @ 70 lbs
Set 3: 3 @ 70 lbs
Set 4: 1 @ 80 lbs
Set 5: 1 @ 80 lbs

Shoulders: Shoulder Press
Set 1: 5 @ 15 lbs
Set 2: 3 @ 17 lbs
Set 3: 3 @ 17 lbs
Set 4: 1 @ 22 lbs
Set 5: 1 @ 22 lbs

Lats: Front Pulldown (machine)
Set 1: 5 @ 99 lbs
Set 2: 3 @ 118 lbs
Set 3: 3 @ 118 lbs

Triceps: Tricep Extensions
Set 1: 5 @ 12 lbs
Set 2: 3 @ 15 lbs
Set 3: 3 @ 15 lbs

Tonight is max strength lower body — I’ve been squatting 80 lbs, so I’m going to see if I can get to 90.
