After the golf, we met Vivian's parents for a BBQ at their condo complex and then after that met up with Vivian's friends Randy and Marnie. It was a long day with alot of activities that required most of Monday to recover.
After also taking Tuesday off, it was time to hit the gym today. It was one of those strange days where I had no desire to exercise but each set felt good once started. I was able to add in extra volume in each of the squat, floor press, and leg press. My ability to work is just about back to normal and my previously weakened left leg is almost a thing of the past.
Squats: 135x10, 225x5, 275x5, 315x5x4 sets, 315x7, getting 2 extra reps on my 5th set of 5's means I'll move the weights to 325 for my next squat workout.
Floor Press: 135x10, 185x10, 225x8, 225x5, 225x5, 225x4 These are still hard as heck. Slowly working up to 5 work sets of these as well.
Leg Press: 450x10, 540x10, 630x5x2 sets. 10 total reps at 630 is a new volume PR. Slowly progressing on these as well.
Incline Dumbbell Press: 75x10, 75x10, 75x8, still using the higher incline (45*) to hit the shoulders harder. There was some fatigue from the floor presses earlier so I kept the weight lighter today. Still lacked the endurance to hit 3 sets of 10.
Dumbbell Curls: 40x8, 40x6, 40x7, last set was done as an alternating dumbbell curl. I dislike doing curls but my elbows will benefit from strengthening my flexors.
These workouts are a real challenge for me having spent so little time over the past 4 and a half years actually training exercises I either dislike or have very little proficiency.
