Like a Kid in a Candy Store
I was like a Kid in a Candy Store today at the gym...
To make a VERY long story short...I was a member at the gym I joined yesterday from the time my twins were 5 mo old until last year. It is a franchise who just this month opened a new gym a mile from my house and is in the process of opening a GIAGANTIC new gym in another town about 15 min. from me. So anyhow...I went back to My "old gym" today and felt HAPPY...I missed the good hard core weight training equipment SO much!! So many of my favorite pieces of equipment were still there plus more new ones I am gonna have to try...It was fun.
So I met up with DH at noon and we did my first real Chest/Tri workout in a while...Here it is:
Warm up on r-bike 6 min
Chest press mach warm up
115x7 (wimped out here)
Incline Hammer Press (one of my favorites!!!)
110x12- these felt great and I am still very strong despite not doing this machine for a year!
15...these always bother my shoulder for some reason...it just feels like its gonna come out of the socket...so I quit them early
Tricep push downs
Tricep extensions with barbell
Knee ups on Roman Chair
100 in a row with 50#'s on my back
20 min of intervals raning from 40 seconds to 4 min ...I have missed this machine, sweat was drippin off of me!!
IT WAS GOOD TO BE BACK!!
On the personal front, thanks so much for your support for me this month...I have had some BIG challenges and am glad this month is almost in the books. I have learned a lot about myself, my GOD and my friends this month.
You all ROCK!
