Only Chest

On Sunday I spent about 5 hours working on the ground area of the outdoor gym space. Wiped me out because it was sunny and in the high 80s. Yesterday I walked 18 holes and then mowed B’s lawn in the evening after work.


  • 20 PVC Passes
  • Bench Press
    • 10×45#
    • 10×75#
    • 5×100#

MAX Bench Press (120/60#)

I was able to knock out an extra five reps compared to Saturday, with 45.

100 Push-ups

I was smarter this week and did 12×5, 12×3, and 1×4 to finish 32 seconds faster than week one with a time of 4:16.

Incline Bench Press

  • 3 sets to failure @ each of 3 weights
  • 3:00 Rest between sets

We used the women’s bar so that B could go lighter than 45#. The incline was a challenge!

  • 13-11-11 @ 120#
  • 19-14-15 @ 100#
  • 22-22-22 @ 80#

6 Sets

  • 12 Tricep Pushdowns (54#)
  • 1:00 Rest

Not sure I would have been successful with 60 pounds, so maybe I’ll try 56.5 next time.

We decided that was enough for the session. That’s a lot of volume to get through. A little later, we put up the second bar. I had painted one side with wall ball targets during lunch, but we got a little rain after our workout so didn’t want to paint the rest when the posts were damp.
