Training: Prep Phase, Cycle 2, Day 4

Today was really the first workout where I felt like my old training self. I actually held back a little.
Front raises superset with side raises 2x15

Bench Press
2x15 @ 45
2x3 @ 135
8x3 @ 175 Speed awesome
2x3 @ 185 Good speed

Close grips
2x6 @ 185

3x15 @ 120

Face pull
3x20 @ 60

Treadmill: 15:30, .75 miles, 119 cals

Workout time: 1:05

End of cycle 2, and things are going swimmingly. Today I felt great, benches had excellent speed, I felt like I could do more, and held back a little. Met my cardio goal (exceeded it by 1 minute!), got to the gym on the scheduled days, and continued to improve mobility and conditioning. One more cycle of the prep phase for sure; I'll evaluate things at the end of that cycle. Goals for the next cycle: 1 hour on the treadmill, hit every day, continue mobility work and stretching. I'd also like to feel good enough to move to traditional max effort work for the following cycle.
