Gym. Session 140. Chest & Biceps

I missed last Wednesday (illness), and Friday and Monday (`cause Steve took MemDay Weekend off), so I'm coming back from a week break. Which I think I really needed, I was really starting to overtrain, I felt, flipping back and forth between just upper front and upper back. Still no legs.

Man, what a glorious bright day.

Hammer Frame Bench Press. Started with the weight record I set last time, and did all 3 sets at it. Was tough keeping it out of my shoulders, but I did it. Cycled with my old personal friend, Reverse Crunch.

Inclined Bench Dumbbell Chest Press cycled with something new, Accordion Bench Crunch. It's done as follows. Balance in my tailbone on a bench, with my body folded at about a 120° angle. Using my abs, not my knees, cruch up, trying to fold in half, hold hard at the max, then relax back to balancing on my butt. Repeat until I fall off the bench. Yow.

All the fly machines were full, so we did Dual Machine Cable Flyes, while using a ball under my head as a "bench", just to give my abs and my balance somre more work to do. Then classic Standing Barbell Bicep Curls cycled with The Plank, and then finished off with Seated Hammer-Grip Dumbbell Bicep Curles.

Have I mentioned the bright sunshiny day?
