Workout Report

Life-fixing agenda item: morning workout. Status: First stage complete. Gym membership reinstated, morning workout, uh, worked out. Time for a Workout Report! You remember these, don't you? I used to do these all the time. ¬.¬

Lower Back: 2 sets 10 reps @ 50 lbs (easy/medium -- this will go up)
Arm Extensions: 2 set 10 reps @ 70 lbs (easy/medium -- this will probably also go up)
Upper Back: 2 set 10 reps @ 60 lbs (easy/medium -- this will probably go up)
Vertical Traction: 2 sets 10 reps @ 90 lbs (medium -- hold here for now)
Shoulder Press: 2 sets 10 reps @ 35 lbs (medium/tough -- hold here for now)
Chest Press: 2 sets 10 reps @ 50 lbs (medium/tough -- hold here for now)
Cable Cross: 2 sets 10 reps @ 40 lbs (tough -- although lack of nourishment was a problem here)
Squat Lift: 2 sets 10 reps @ 40 lbs (tough -- it's not the weight on this one that hurts, it's the bending!)
Arm Curls: 2 sets 10 reps @ 30 lbs (medium/hard -- the second set of these always kills me)
Leg Press: 2 sets 10 reps @ 140 lbs (easy/tough -- hold here for now)
Weight: 329 lbs

Net result: I had definitely slipped in certain areas, but I knew that would be the case. I was actually pleased at how much strength I had retained, given my age and general lack of activity lately.

Today's lesson learned: I must eat something before my workout. About 2/3 of the way through, I suddenly became weak and woozy and needed to sit down until I recovered. I'll have to find some sort of power bar or such that I can eat on the way without gagging.

And now... shower and work. But hey, at least the workout is done!

You should join fitocracy.com . It's a website that tracks your workouts with kind of a geek/nerd twist. As you workout you level up, and there are quests, achievements, etc. I'm on there as Trianna if you want to check it out. The only bad thing is if you're counting calories too the website doesn't do that.
