Going on 1 year at home

I saw a “post 1 year ago” on Facebook and realize that I’ve been doing the home gym thing for well over 1 year; that explains, in part, why incline presses are such a struggle. I went a year without doing them! Also, I’ve gotten soft on the standing overhead presses due to my using the “bench with back support” so much.

Yesterday: ok walk; sped up at the end.

I did a “lot of laps” to take advantage of low traffic and good footing; some mild ache.

Today: took some of it outside; shoulder is certainly tender (have to watch “re-racking” the weights)

lots of rotator cuff

pull ups: 50 reps; 10 single, 2 sets of 10, then 5, 5, 7, 3 (last 3 were chins); spent recoveries taking weights out.

incline presses: 10 x 44, 10 x 114, 10 x 125, 5 x 135, 5 x 135 (this was work)

rows: 3 sets of 10 x 134

shoulder presses: this was all over the place; one shoulder tweak on getting the weight out; learning to use a “push” to get the first rep started:
3 x 87, 5 x 81, 6 x 81, 5 x 81, 5 x 81, 5 x 81

curls: 3 sets of 10: 50, 50, 52

Overall, this took a while (30 min. extra for bringing weights in and out..but now I know what I need and what to do)
