I admit that one of the best parts of the workout is sitting on the porch, drinking a diet soda …cooling off, after a nice workout.
I don’t know if these are doing me any good physically; I can say that while my strength has declined since 2011 (15 pull up sets almost never happen; best bench has declined from 210 to about 198, though dead lifts have gotten better this year) I know that the workouts perk me up and give me something to look forward to.
Today: warm up
pull up: 50 reps; sets of 5, broken sets of 2 (10 reps), 5 singles, 10 singles, etc. These went ok.
bench press: 10 x 134, 5 x 174, 3 x 184, 3 x 184, 5 x 174 (challenging)
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 60 each arm
shoulder press: 36 kg (80 lb), 2 sets of 10, 40 kg (88 lb) set of 10 (seated)
push ups: 3 sets of 20 on the 2 minute (got them all this time)
I swear, looking at this: it doesn’t look like much. I suppose it isn’t. But it is what I can do.
