Thursday Workout Report ("You Were the Chosen One!" Edition)

Tonight's video selection, in case you couldn't guess, was Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Of the prequel trilogy, it's by far the strongest one, but it is also the hardest one to watch. I didn't see it more than once in the theaters, because that one time was such an emotional gutpunch. Watching Anakin go up in flames while Obi-Wan just stands there is ... well ... difficult. On the other hand, the movie has a lot of cool stuff that I was glad to see a second time (Obi-Wan on giant feathered lizard for starters).

So anyway, I used the Force, and...

Rows: 3 mins @ 55 lbs (warmup)
Narrow Pulldowns: 1 set 10 reps @ 65 lbs
Triceps Pushdown: 1 set 10 reps @ 50 lbs
Bench Press: 1 set 10 reps @ 70 lbs
Seated Lat Rows: 1 set 10 reps @ 45 lbs
Rear Deltoid Row: 1 set 10 reps @ 45 lbs
Chest Fly: 1 set 10 reps @ 45 lbs
Deadlift: 1 set 10 reps @ 45 lbs
Military Press: 2 sets 10 reps @ 30 lbs
Gungbu / Long Stance: 2 mins ea. side
Rows: 3 mins @ 35 lbs (cooldown)

Body Weight: 299 lbs

I didn't do any workout yesterday, and there's no strip tomorrow ... I'm still fighting off whatever it was that left me feeling so dead all week. But I got a nice bit of guest art to put up instead. Hopefully I can get rested up and back to normal soon, I'm started to get a bit disgusted with this not getting anything done. Assuming I can get in a workout Saturday, I'll still have gone without missing my three Bowflex sessions a week since November, even if Maya will be pouty at me next time I start up Yourself! Fitness.


PS: Oh! I forgot to mention! Padmé had an intersting subplot in Episode III -- but it got cut out for time. Le sigh! At least it's in the DVD bonus footage. It didn't make her as cool as Leia, alas, but at least it would have made her more than furniture.
