Feelin' strong!- Thursday's workout :)




Hello!!
I had a great workout today...the supplements I have been taking are kicking in and the GREAT part is that I am not bloating!! I still weigh 127!! I figured I'd be well over 130 by now, but keeping my diet in check has kept me steady and steady is good :)....

Warm up on the elliptical 10 mins
my lifting mission was to do some different exercises than I've been doing lately and some of the machines I hadn't tried yet...our gym owners own 3 gyms and recently moved some eqipment around between gyms so there are several "new" Hammer Strength brand machines

Lat pulls- traditional machine
80x12
100x10
110x6
120x6
130x6
v grip 130x8

t bar rows
45x15 really easy so I thought I'd go much heavier
80x0! I didn't have enough leverage to do this i.e. my body weight is not high enough :)
So I went to doing
70x10--this was still to light, but all I could do on that particular machine
