Let the hurt begin.

Bench: 195 - 3x8, 205 - 1x5

Leg Press: 240 - 3x8

Seated row: 180 - 3x8

Seated Sh press: 90 - 3x8

Cable Curl / Tri Push Down: 40 / 105 - 3x8 (Too easy)

20 minute walk around the parking lot.  In the morning, the parking lot is completely empty and makes a perfect track.  It is probably 35 - 40 yards long.  Who knows?  I'm not good at distance estimates.

48 minutes on an elliptical at level 5.  Who knows what that distance really translates into?  I'll take it.  Better than nothing.

Bench: 195 - 3x8, 225 - 1x3 (So happy I can lift 225 once again)

Leg Sled / Calf Raise: 180 - 3x8, 3x8

Seated Row: 180 - 2x8, 200 - 1x8

Dumbbell Sh Press / Alt Curl: 35 - 3x8 / 3x8

Cable Tri Push Down: 90 - 3x8 (Harder than usual today)

Parking lot sprints: 10

Took about a minute for each sprint.  I "sprinted" down and walked back and then repeated.  However, for the last four reps, didn't walk and just took a couple of seconds to catch my breath before sprinting back in the interest of time.

A lot of room for improvement.

Fun day.  Spent an hour in the gym.  Tried Jacob's Ladder for the first time.  Harder than it looks.  After warming up for a couple of minutes, did 5 reps of 30 seconds with 30 seconds off.  For a total time of 2:30, I only made it 242 feet.

Moved on to another machine which seems like a cheaper version of an elliptical.  Spent 20 minutes on it but didn't pay attention to anything else.  Set at level 5 for weight loss.

Moved on to the treadmill and just walked for 25 minutes.  1.42 miles in 25 minutes at an incline of 3.

Nothing significant of note, but it was just what I wanted it to be.  It was a fun day in the gym and saved a little bit of wear on the knees by avoiding the pavement.

Had to improvise a little today.  Jogged around the abandoned neighborhood to make sure the streets were clear.  They were.  After the jog, did a little walking, but we won't count that.

Made it back in the gym at least once this week.  It has been a busy week.

Bench Press: 205 - 1x5, 210 - 1x5, 215 - 1x5, 225 - 1x8

Leg Press: 280 - 2x5, 300 - 1x5

Seated Row: 200 - 2x5, 220 - 1x5

Dumbbell Sh Press / Curl: 40 - 3x5 / Calf Raise (Body Weight): 3x10

Tri push down (triangle bar): 1 set of 5 for each weight - 120, 130, 140, 150.  The bar makes it so easy.  The rope makes it harder.  Next time, I'll use the rope.

Sci-Fit Arm bike: 8 min qwik fit at 290 lbs for 1.64 miles.

15 minutes on the treadmill for a walk: incline of 3, pace 3.5.

Two laps around the abandoned neighborhood.  15:42 on the second lap which puts me at about 31:24 or longer for two laps.  Just happy to not have anything break.
