Fun, fun, fun!! Valerie came to workout with me. It was very nice to workout with a woman instead of the guys. A lot less swearing and no farting. 🙂
I had a good workout. Valerie taught me how to kick up dumbbells differently to make it easier to lift them over my head. I think one of the guys tried to explain to me how to do this same thing, but I didn’t understand.
I wanted to redo the max bench press I tried to do last week when I was sick. Last week, I benched 105 pounds. This morning I did 115 for 3 reps with a spot. I am not super happy with that, but it’s OK. I haven’t done traditional bench press very often. I’ve been using the Smith machine because I don’t usually have a spotter. I will do this lift more often now. I’m sure the weights will go up. My pecs are growing nicely, but this is a major exercise, so I need to do it more often. If I’m alone, I’ll use a lifting cage to keep from killing myself.
But my legs – holy cow! They are swollen and sore (good sore) today. I’m pretty excited.
