Fresh week, fresh start at the gym. I was feeling in fine fettle after the weekend's activity - 18 miles cycled on Saturday and a good boxing session on Sunday. I normally have very achy abdominals after boxing, but I felt good. My back is beginning to feel right again after pulling it doing a very heavy deadlift the other week.
- Db shoulder press: 10 @ 45lbs, 8 @ 55lb, 3 x 5 @ 65lb
- Shrug: 10 @ 40kg, 8 @ 60kg, 3 x 5 @ 80kg
- Military press: 10 @ 30kg, 8 @ 40kg, 3x5 @ 55kg
- Seated row: 10 @ 45kg, 8 @ 60kg, 3 x 5 @ 85kg
- Dip: 10 @ 80lb, 8 @ 70lb, 3 x 5 @ 40lb
Overall, I was pleased with the session. A weight on the shoulders that I struggled with was dealth with easily on my second warmup set. My grip failed slightly due to a damaged grip on the shrug levers. The military press was pleasing, especially after a DB shoulder set. I did the first set as clean and press as this is part of an intra-rugby club competition. Seated row went well and was there to work the rear deltoid. I was particularly pleased with the dips - my heaviest ever and I'd already worked my triceps twice. I'm getting close to a bodyweight dip - which for an 18.5 stone man with noodly arms is pleasing!
