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!
