Chest and Back A
Tonight was the first workout of phase 3 for me. It was basically absolute domination. Every set and rep felt great so my motivation is at a pretty high level. I was filled with energy and couldn’t ask for much more in my workout.
I ramped up with triples on flat bench until I got to 215 where I hit it for a double. I didn’t have a spot tonight, so last time I got 3×215, but tonight I was one short. Oh well, the confidence in the lift is what I was hoping for. I’ve never been confident to attempt two plates on my own (even for a single) so I’m hoping to smash that in phase 4. I followed up with incline dumbbells and had no issues there.
The back portion of my workout went smoothly as well. Nothing too notable here. I did try the stepper today, and holy sh*t that was an eye opener. I think I found my new favourite cardio machine though. I was soaking this thing with sweat and I was only on it for 10 minutes. Definitely sweet stuff right there.
