Yezzz, another great success!!


I decided to not take any time off from training since I have been making great progress lately. I pushed this Friday's session up to today, and tomorrow I will do back work, but without deadlifts. If I am not too tired when I get home from camping on Sunday, I will squat.

I guess I could have gone higher with the many weight adjustments I made to allow for the lower rep schemes.

With flat bench I pretty much matched Friday's reps that were at the lower weights!

With incline I surpassed Friday's reps that were done at 5 lbs less.

With dips I progressed nicely, even without the longer rest period between them and incline bench. I usually separate them with the v-chins.




Thank you, come again
