I went back to the gym today. It’s the first time since Covid in March of 2020. I may be sorry.
I had to establish a baseline for my initial exercises. I was supposed to do a gradual increase to see which weights I could lift easily until I got to one where it was really taxing.
I’m doing lat rows from bent over position on a bench and got to 5# each arm, then, since that was easy I thought I’d go to 15#. Someone had stolen all the 15# weights in the whole gym! Got to 20# though for 20 repetitions. 1st time in the gym for 3 years (since March of 2020).
Then I’m doing max weights today for bench press, and I got to 65# for 5 reps.
Then I did chair squats. Stand up, then take 10 seconds to sit.
Wt 202. (includes shoes and workout clothes, so no I didn’t strip.) Oh and I weighed at home because Someone stole the scales. Unbelievable!
I now weigh 6 pounds less than what I weighed when I started the blog eight years ago. https://ihavebetterthingstodo.wordpress.com/2014/03/06/it-begins/
