Today was the first day in a week that I was able to get back into the gym and train with my trainer. I have been training alone since last Tuesday due to my trainer catching a flu bug.
Although I am completely capable of training on my own, it's amazing how my trainer is able to push me that extra mile. Or extra rep I should say…
When I train alone, I don't always throw on that extra 10 or 20 lbs. that I could lift. So, it was really nice to train with him again today!
Tuesday's are my chest and triceps day and I was able to surprise myself in more ways than one! This was my workout of the day:
Incline DB Press 1 warm up set of 12 reps followed by 3 sets of 10
Decline Chest Press 4 x 12, 10, 10, 10
Pec Dec 3 x 10, 10, 10 (drop set)
Close Grip Bench Press 3 x 10
Overhead Triceps Extention with EZ Bar 3 x 10
Reverse Grip Cable Bar Pushdown 4 x 10
I was able to increase my weights in both incline and decline presses, which made me happy I also worked really hard on the last exercise, reverse grip pushdowns, and set a new PR for reps!
It was a great workout and my trainer was proud of how hard I worked My triceps are so fatigued and my chest is most definitely going to be sore tomorrow!
Tomorrow's a rest day, but I'll be back with an easy peasy recipe for you to try out
Have a great day!
