After a couple weeks of not really feeling it in the gym, I got my money's worth this week. Monday was a back day, my favorite. After doing 4 sets of 6 exercises I ended with wide-gripped pull-ups, close-grip chin ups and some other variations. I tried to stick to 10 reps per set...which means I probably did 70 plus pull-ups of one version or another. The result? I was woken up with a lat cramp, not once but twice. I'm used to getting cramps in my hamstrings, but my lat? What the heck? It was not fun, but it was a good sign that I worked as hard as possible!
Tuesday I was able to get in a good chest workout. I did 7 sets of flat bench with 4 of those sets at 105 lbs (6,5,5,5). Next week I'm going to try to put 135lbs up once... that has always been my goal and I think I am close. I haven't attempted it before, so we shall see!
In the meantime, today is a R-E-S-T day:) I have a track meet this evening, so I'll be on my feet for 4 hours in the cold rain, joy oh joy! This is the first year that I can remember having terrible weather. It's usually a beautiful spring day and so much fun to watch the kids get out there and work hard. booooo...
OH, and almost forgot to mention that I DESTROYED my obliques Monday morning with a 20 minute workout. It is hard for me to get my abs sore, but right now I can barely touch my ribs, low back, or obliques without pain. YES:)
