Friday – Legs

  • Squats (w/o belt)
    • 255 lbs, 5 sets x 5 reps
    • 260 lbs, 1 set x 5 reps*
  • Standing Calf Raises (255 lbs), 2 sets x 25 reps

Comments:

* I did an additional set to assess whether I should continue increasing the weight each workout or switch to a different rep scheme. The 260 lbs set I did felt light so I will keep adding weight for perhaps an additional two workouts before dropping to sets of 3 reps.

Thursday – Push

  • Bench Press
    • 210 lbs, 5 sets x 7 reps
  • Standing Shoulder Press* (95 lbs), 7 sets x 7 reps
  • Dumbbell Triceps Extension* (25 lbs),  3 sets x 15 reps

Comments:

* I found that completing all five sets of the bench press with this weight really tired me out so I decided to go light on the shoulders and triceps.
