Fit On Tracker: Progress Report 18

Workout Date:  Tuesday, September 25th, 2012
Time: 10:45pm-11:45pm
Warm Up: Walking and stretching
I felt a bit heavy on the emotional level, so I went to the gym to work out.  Originally, I planned on doing a full workout.  Usually, as I’m working out, I tend to become more invigorated.  This time around, however, I didn’t feel that way, and I didn’t want to force it, since I had both jobs to work the next day.
So this will only list starting cardio and upper body exercises.  The lower body exercises, abdominals, and the additional cardio intended for this sitting will be placed on the next sitting.
Machine Used-Chest Press: I did 1@10 and 2@20.  The 2nd shift worn me out a bit because normally I’m able to do a set of 30, although with slight strain.  I remembered how to use the “add weights knob”.
However, I did notice there’s another machine for chest presses that isn’t an overhead one.  I have a theory I’ll be able to achieve them better on that machine than the one I’ve been using.  I will test out the theory for next time.
Machine Used-Fixed Pulldown (15lb. Increments):  I did 1@55, 1@70, and 1@85.  Slight strain on the 85, but I was able to do it.
Machine Used-Rear Deltoid:  I did 1@30 and 2@40.  I played around with the adjustment knob to feel the difference between the 30 and the 40.  I will go ahead and phase out the 30 pound completely and continue building my endurance to the 50 lb. Weights.
Machine Used-Arm Curl ( no bar): I did 2@30.  I also incorporated 2 sets of 10lb. Free weights and did a set of 12 using the weights.
Machine Used-Arm Press: I did 3 sets of 12: 1@90, 2@110.  Normally, I’m able to pull of 130, but I will chalk it up to my body being tired.
Cardio/Cool Down:
Elliptical:  I increased my amount of time from 13 minutes last session to 14 minutes this session.  Counting the 3 minutes for cooldown, it brings my total to 17 minutes.
