Actually fun to ride in..
Okay, so I actually have a little energy today so I'm going to toss this one up kinda quick before I lose my motivation. I really have to clean this apartment!
After being dead tired yesterday I ended up sleeping in a bit this morning. In my rush to get breakfast in me and get out the door I accidentally left my fridge door open. No serious losses, just some lettuce and a half carton of soy milk, but I still feel pretty stupid for not noticing it. Why my fridge decided at that moment to stay open I will never understand.
This morning I mixed some vegan Creatine Monohydrate into my soaked oats and I do believe I noticed a difference today.
I started with a 3 mile run @ 6mph and a 1.0% incline. This incline is starting to get easier and I think I'll be able to bump up the speed soon without too much soreness.
Chest and Triceps
**So today I was able to lift heavier than I had last week but my left forearm failed WAY earlier. It became SUPER limiting on the Flys and Chest Push ups.
Flat Bench w/ DB
Warm up: 12 @ 25lbs
1st: 10 @ 30lbs (struggled on the 10th rep, thought I was screwed for sure.)
2nd: 10 @ 35lbs
3rd: 8 @ 40lbs
4th Super Set: 2 @ 40lbs / 4 @ 30lbs / 10 @ 20lbs.
**Last week I couldn't even LIFT the 40's so to push them for the full 8 reps was awesome!
1st: 10 @ 25lbs
2nd: 10 @ 30lbs
3rd: 8 @ 30lbs (Tried but couldn't lift the 35lbs, felt close though)
4th: Super Set: 7 @ 30 lbs / 5 @ 25lbs / 6 @ 20lbs
** This one improved a lot as well. I got all my reps before failure and upped my weight on the super set.
Chest Push Ups/ DB Fly
**This is where my left forearm started to give. It was so tired that I couldn't keep my left hand wrapped around the DB. I actually dropped it on the first set. I had to put so much energy into keeping my hand closed around the DB that I didn't have any energy left for the push ups and my left arm failed completely.
1st: 13 @ 20lbs and 15 push ups.
2nd: 15 @ 20lbs and 15 push ups.
**This one improved a touch but I was having problems controlling the DB with my left arm. Did more lifting with my right tri than my left tri.
1st: 10 @ 30lbs
2nd: 10 @ 35lbs
3rd: 10 @ 40lbs.
I didn't get a chance to do cable pull down. My motivation wasn't exactly working this morning so I spent too much time sitting on my butt and started my workout late.
Ah well. I still feel pretty good. Not as wrecked and shaky as I did last week, but at least I felt like a progressed.
