I predict you'll have some cool three digit numbers in a not to distant future.
Here's hoping! *crosses fingers* I can't wait to try deadlifts and then get to do a proper 1RM!
who knew lifting was so much fun?!-Training-
Warm up- Cross Trainer 5 mins on level 12 Random
Squat- 3 x 4 @ 80kg
Bench Press- 6,5,5 @ 35kg
45 Degree Leg Press- 3 x 6 @ 150kg
Standing Cable Flys- 3 x 8 @ 8.75
Dumbbell Shoulder Press on swiss ball- 10,8,8 @ 8kg

People in the gym were so nice today, 3 different people came up and told me I was getting stronger and looking good
I love getting compliments from strangers! (they aren't obligated to say anything nice so there's a greater chance it's true
Squats were good. Getting better every session. Tried looking up for one (someone suggested it) and nearly fell over... not doing that again. I much prefer looking forwards. I think I'll stay at 80 till I get to 3 x 6 and make sure they're as deep as possible before I go up again. (Only got 4 more sessions alone before my trainer will up everything ridiculously high again anyway!)
Bench felt really good today, I'm considering going up next time or the time after depending how I feel on tuesday.
I think I'm finally ready to up the weights on the leg press, I was feeling much stronger today (if I can get to 160 it'll be 2 x BW!)
And I finally got my wrist strength back up! I've never recovered this quickly before, I'm amazed. I really think having more muscle strength to take over from whatever was injured helped.
Now I've just got to work on eating enough.... which unfortunately seems to be easier said than done.
