Tues chest workout with Jon Benson

Monday afternoon I received a text message from my friend, Jon Benson, to let me know that he was going to be in Austin for a couple of days and he wanted to come workout with me.  Jon is the author of Fit Over 40, as well as a number of other books on nutrition and training.  And, he’s a super-cool dude so I jumped on the chance to train with him.  Since we were taking up the time between sets talking about nutrition and training I didn’t record my workout, but this is pretty much what we did:

Bench Press 5 sets 10-12 reps

Pec Fly Machine  4 sets 10-12 reps

Incline Press on Smith Machine  4 sets 8-10 reps

DB “Punches”  3 sets 12 reps (Jon showed me this exercise.  It’s sorta like doing alternating upper-cut punches with the db ending up in front of your opposite shoulder on each rep)

Skull Crushers 4 sets 15-20 reps

Press Downs 4 sets 10-12 reps

DB Shrugs 3 sets 12 reps

It was a great workout and really fun to catch up with Jon and exchange ideas.  You can check out Jon’s books and see his amazing transformation on
