Today’s workout is officially done. I was supposed to do my flat bench chest workout yesterday, but we had Applebee’s for lunch and it totally screwed up my stomach.
My stomach is really sensitive to salad dressing and last night I ordered a Ceasar salad, totally forgetting about the horrible stomach pains I would probably have afterwards. They came with a vengeance. Definitely not a smart move on my part.
So I ended up doing my chest workout late this morning. I just wanted to do flat bench and of course wanted to share it here with you. If I don’t share it didn’t happen right? Ha!
This is flat bench only because that’s what I wanted to focus on today.
Flat Bench Chest Workout
- 35lbs 1 set x 12 reps
- 45lbs 1 set x 12 reps
- 55lbs 1 set x 10 reps
- 65lbs 1 set x 5 reps
- 75lbs 1 set x 1 rep (because Roger made me laugh…)
- 75lbs 1 set x 3
- 80lbs 1 set x 2!
I got a personal best today!
Eighty pounds on flat bench is my heaviest bench press to date. I had Roger spotting me in case I needed some help, but I completed 2 full reps. I’m really starting to love this lifting thing. It makes me feel so strong even though I’m just starting. =]
