In the photo I’m posing with my friend, Caroline Krakower, after the Masters Nationals. Caroline won the women’s lightweight division.
Today I concentrated my efforts on high reps on the bench press. Hyde Park Gym is having a bench press contest on November 8th. The contest will be how many reps you can perform with your bodyweight. I’m not sure that I’ll be in town that weekend, but I want to be ready just in case. Cranking out 3 sets of maximum reps with 180 lbs in the bench press really fatigued my chest, shoulders and triceps differently than my usual workout. My strength was way down on the incline presses. After chest I did some bonus medial delt work, but didn’t do any curls because I have a strained spot in my left forearm.
Bench Press 5 sets 135X12, 165X12, 180X20X20X15
Incline press 5 sets 10 reps
Pec Fly Machine 3 sets 15, 12, 10
DB Lateral raises 4 sets 15, 15, 12, 12
