Benches: Be Strong, Copyright by SnipeWife 2012

I’m hovering at 171 lbs. This time last year I was about 166 lbs. Considering I gained only 12 pounds while on steroids is amazing. Sure I’d like to be back down but I feel more fit than I did a year ago as the PsA was settling in and my knees were so full of fluids. I’ve even had a personal best bench press of 130 lbs! Whoot! And we may shoot for 135 next month! Also, the jeans that I put away at the end of winter fit so much better this fall. I’ve even given away my last pair of “Guy Jeans” so I no longer look obscene (my friends are all relieved and don’t mind being with me in public).

So because I’m seeing the trainer for three days in a row he is taking it easy on me so that I can bench my best tomorrow. Today’s workout was entirely lower body cardio.

I ran for “long runs”–marked out on the parking lot. I will have to get the exact feet and post later.

I did Warm-Up #1 for the arms (have I posted this yet?)

For 5 sets, do the following with 2 1/2 minutes rest between sets:

15 body weight squats

15 seal jacks

12 jumping jacks

6 20 lb. medicine ball smash-downs (I’m getting so good at this that I can squat and catch the ball on its bounce!)

Push Prowler sled with 20 lbs. the length of the room (approx. 25 feet).

Rest. Repeat.
