Getting On Track

Tuesday after work I went to the 17 Wing Strength Club and decided on Squats. More so Squats with knee wraps.

Light Stretching.
Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/bar, 2 sets/8 reps/70kg, 120kg/4 reps, 170kg/2 reps, 200kg/miss.

Yikes!!! Pathetic! I put on the wraps for the second set of 70kg and all sets after. This terrible experience has me understanding that I am no longer a strength athlete. Still a bit depressing.

Today I went to the gym with a new found purpose. High Intensity Interval Training HIIT is the way to go.

Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 2 sets/10 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/8 reps.

Alternate the following;
Bench Press - 5 sets/2 reps/315lbs.
Skipping - 4 sets/100 reps.

Finish up
Bench Press - 225lbs/8 reps, 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs.
Hammer Curls - 2 sets/8 reps/35, 40lbs.

My heart rate was super elevated the entire work out. I feel GREAT!!!

Swimming tomorrow!
