Training: DE Bench

It's nice to train on Saturday afternoon. An empty gym, and cranked heavy music.

Phase 1, Cycle 1, Day 4

Bench press
2x15 @ 45
3x3 @ 135
8 sets of 3 @ 185, 3 grips.
Speed work was fast, heavier sets were easy, but not very fast.

Closg grips

5x12 @ 100
These were pulled down low to work on mobility. Felt good.

Reverse bench rear delts
2x15 @ 20

Treadmill: 30 mins, 245 cals, 1.6 mi.

Workout time: 4:07p - 5:40p

That's the end of Cycle 1. How've I done?

Improve Conditioning
I said I would do 1 hour of cardio every 7 days. I missed that by 10 minutes. Next week (Sunday to Sunday) goes up to 1:10.
I said I would improve my diet. I've increased my protein intake, but I'm still not eating enough veggies, and too much convenience food. Need to work on this

Improve Mobility
I've stretched after every workout, but haven't done my mobility work. I'll do mobility work 3 times next week.

Build base strength by focusing on the basics
Well, I haven't missed a session, and I'm keeping things basic.

All in all, off to a decent start.
