Saturday my friggin’ truck wouldn’t start! So I had to cancel my clients and reschedule them for Sunday. I already had been talked into coming in Saturday to train with my client, Dana Kemp. My first client, Barry Wile, has lost about 30 lbs since the beginning of the year and started looking so good that he has decided to compete in the INBF Alamo Showdown this month. So we spent an hour working on posing. He caught on really quickly, and I think will do well at the show. I’ll try to get him to send me some pics to post here.
After an hour of posing with Barry, I worked chest with Dana. Dana was working chest and back, so the chest workout for me was a bit abbreviated. Although my strength was a little down (could have had something to do with my brother’s bachelor party the previous night), I got a really good pump and I’m pretty sore today.
Bench Press 5 sets 10-12 reps
Incline Press 5 sets 10-12 reps
Today I had a leg workout to do. I planned to work both legs, but I did them one at a time and I didn’t do any leg presses for my injured leg because I was afraid the sled would be too heavy on the 45 degree leg press….that and I would have had to get up and unload all the weights every set. It was amazing how much stronger my injured leg was since my very first weight workout on it (since my surgery 7 weeks ago) last week. It’s looking and feeling so much better. Not good yet, but better.
I had a big assist today from Jerry and David. Since I didn’t have my truck, Jerry picked me up from work to go to Golds Gym, and David drove me back. I could have done some leg work here at Hyde Park Gym, but the machines at Golds are much more “injured leg” friendly and I was able to do more exercises.
Leg press (good leg only) 6 sets 20 reps
Leg Ext (one at a time) 4 sets 12-15 reps
Seated Leg Curls (one at a time) 4 sets 12-15 reps
