Training 9-11-07

First B workout session:

Front Squat
5 x 155
5 x 175
3 x 5 x 165

5 x 135
3 x 5 x 125
4 x 125

Bent Over Barbell Row
5 x 5 x 145

10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 7

Hanging Leg Raises
10, 10, 10, 10

Front Squat was good at 165. That should be my weight going forward. I'm still not flexible enough for the clean grip, but stretching the wrists and triceps should help.

I thought I'd be able to do more weight on military press. I was doing 4 x 7 with 125 two weeks ago. Maybe starting at 135 was a bit optimistic.

Barbell row was also good. Form was iffy on the last rep of the last 2 sets. Got about 1 inch away from touching my chest, but couldn't quite finish it out.

I still need a chain belt for pullups and dips. I'll need to go heavier to progress in either.

All three of the roomies came along for the workout today! Two of them even completed the workout with me, albeit with three sets per exercise instead of five. The third roomie said that machines were better than free weights because you can use more weight and went off to run on the treadmill. Maybe I'll write a post on the many reasons he's wrong tomorrow.
