Last 2 workouts

I didn't end up getting my leg workout in yesterday until after my workday was finished.  I don't like working out in the evening, but I was waiting for Brenda to ditch her boss (he was riding with her yesterday).  She didn't get rid of him early enough, so I trained my evening clients and then did my workout on the way home.  It was another case of workouts that I really wasn't feeling at the beginning, but I kept plugging away and pushing myself, and it turned out to be a pretty good workout.  My thighs and glutes sure are sore today!  I was able to increase 90 more lbs on my leg presses and 25 more lbs on my squats.  As long as my leg workouts can show improvement, I'm doing good!

Leg Press 8 sets 20 reps

Squats (below parallel) 6 sets 8-10 reps

Single Leg curls 4 sets 10-12 reps

I started to do leg extensions but my knees were swelling and painful, so I stopped there.

Today my right shoulder was super-sore.  But, as I worked through the lighter sets it warmed up and I was able to get a decent chest workout with Brenda's help.  Brenda's beautiful smile is always a mood lifter, so that helps too!

Bench Press  7 sets 10-15 reps

Incline Press 5 sets 8-10 reps

Pec Fly Machine 4 sets 12 reps

Just for fun:

Standing DB Curls 4 sets 10-12 reps
