Light chest day yesterday.  Good thing I was planning on going light, because when I got started on the 185's it felt like one of those days when they added extra gravity to the gym floor.  Couldn't have gone much heavier if I wanted to.

Thursday Nov. 20 - Chest

Bench Press:
bar x 20 -- 2 sets
135 lb x 10
185 lb x 5 -- felt weak as a little girl
185 lb x 10 -- barely eeked that out.  WTF is going on.
185 lb x 8
165 lb x 15

Barbell Pullovers:
60 lb x 18 -- 3 sets

Machine Flys:
90 lb x 15 -- 3 sets

Svend Presses:
5 lb plates x 15 (5 high, 5 mid, 5 low) -- 3 sets

I felt like that doing the decline benches today. I started at 135 and figured I'd do a set of 15 or so and go up from there. Managed 13 and figured I'd just stay at that weight.  :S

Another good workout though. :thumbsup:
Eric

I don't know Toby, but I'd say that's a decent dead session coming back from the holidays and work travel.

Still good that iron was moving up and down.  For being Iron Sanctuary, there are so few of us posting lifting journals. Keep on doing so, brother!  Even when you don't feel like it was much to show.  Every session, every journal entry sets you apart from all the other talkers.

Have a great Christmas and New Year!
