Sunday Workout Report (Gonna Moon Ya Edition)

Did 40 minutes of DDR this morning (nothing worth reporting); later on, did the Bowflex while watching Mystery Science Theatre 3000 #415: The Beatniks. Best line: "Wow, beatnik music is really square!"

Shut up, Iris!

Rows: 3 mins @ 55 lbs (warmup)
Seated Lat Rows: 1 set 10 reps @ 40 lbs
Flat Barbell Bench Press: 1 set 10 reps @ 90 lbs (!!)
Bench Press: 1 set 10 reps @ 70 lbs
Seated Resisted Oblique Crunch: 3 sets 10 reps @ 35 lbs
Cross Triceps Extension: 1 set 8 reps @ 35 lbs (this was supposed to be 10 reps @ 30 lbs, but I goofed; 35 is too heavy for me yet)
Triceps Pushdown: 1 set 5 reps @ 50 lbs (I normally do 10, but after the overloaded Cross Triceps, I wasn't up to the full set)
Narrow Pulldowns: 1 set 10 reps @ 60 lbs
Resisted Punch: 3 sets 10 reps @ 35 lbs (this was a little too heavy; I couldn't keep proper form through the end)
Rear Deltoid Row: 1 set 10 reps @ 45 lbs
Deadlift: 1 set 10 reps @ 45 lbs (this picked up the whole machine 0.o)
Military Press: 2 sets 10 reps @ 30 lbs
Leg Press: 3 sets 10 reps @ 105 lbs (zzz)
Mabu / Horse Stance: 2:30
Rows: 3 mins @ 35 lbs (cooldown)

Body Weight: 296 lbs for no apparent reason

I am rapidly reaching the point where I'm going to outgrow the machine. The Leg Press is already maxed out and too light; and when I lifted the bar on the deadlift, the whole bench came with it. 0.o To do it properly, I have to stand on the end plate, but that makes the bar bonk my knees on the way up. The Flat Barbell Bench Press can only increase weight three more times before it's maxed out as well.

So the time will soon come when I have to decide what to do next. I could join a gym, but that negates the whole benefit of being able to do it at home on a moment's notice. I may end up switching the Bowflex back to twice a week and increasing the Yourself! Fitness to three times, since the cardio is more what I need anyway.

Was it really just last November that I started with 15, 20, and 35 lbs exercises? 0.o
