Dave's Not Here

I know Tammy hates it when I post Workout & Diet stuff where people can see it (even if they’re not looking for it).  And, I know that I posted my max on Friday.  But, I hit a new record today, so, I gotta brag agin.  At 41 years of age, I just bench pressed, for the first time in my life, 260 pounds.  Suck it.  🙂


I decided before I got to the gym that I was going to try bench again.  I was just not happy with my performance on Friday.  So, instead of doing pushups for warmups, I snuck in a little mini max.  And, I also skipped high jumps, because I’m a little girl, and I don’t like to jump.

  • 5 mins on a treadmill at 6.0 Mph
  • Bench Press:  3@185#, 1@225#, 1@250#, 1@260#
  • Squat Machine: 2×5@135
  • Kroc Rows: 2×15@45 — Need to move to 50.  They got hard near the end, but, in general, were a little light.


On the workout, I was unable to use both squat racks, and, since I can’t clean the weight, for the supersets, I used a squat machine.  (Not a smith machine, but more of the football style squat rack.  Let me try to find a pic: Something similar to this:  

  • Bench and Squat Supersets
    • Bench: 3×5@185, 3×5@195, 1×5@205 (Failed on second set, and bailed to next weight), 1×8@165
    • Squat: 3×5@185, 3×5@235, 2×5@285 (skipped last set due to bench failure), 1×15@285
