Finished the Chest Program

Super busy and productive day on Sunday with the heat, so skipped a workout. Yesterday my back was good enough to walk 18 holes and after a week away from the course. It wore me out for the day! I edged and mowed the lawn during lunch today.

Final day of the chest program and I’m over it!

Warm-up

  • 20 PVC Passes
  • Bench Press
    • 10×45
    • 8×95
    • 6×135
    • 4×165
    • 3×185
    • 2×205

Chest

MAX Bench Press (225#)

Got nine reps, which is 1 more than Saturday and 1 short of tying my best ever.

100 HR Push-ups

I did 3s through 81 and then quick singles to finish in 5:34. Still now close to my PR, but almost 30 seconds faster than last week.

Seated Shoulder Press

  • 3 Sets @ 3 Weights
    • MAX Reps
    • 3:00 Rest between sets

I did 15-13-12 with 110, 15-14–15 with 90, and 22-20-20 with 70 pounds. Decided to increase 15# per set over the last time and ended up with 905 more total pounds lifted. 💪

6 Sets

  • 12 Double DB French Press
  • 1:00 Rest

I was smoked, but wanted to see if I could jump up to the 25s. I barely made it through two sets and then used 20s for the last four sets.

FIN!

We really liked this program and it seemed to work well. We both put on size and got more comfortable with all the volume. Probably should have drank more protein shakes because it was so many reps, especially the Tuesday workouts. I think we’re going to start an arm program next.

About an hour after the workout we went for a 2.62 mile walk in about 45 minutes.
