Squats, Walking, Bench Press and Skipping

Today is my Anniversary. I've been married to my best friend for 18 years. I love you more now and more tomorrow than ever before.

Yesterday evening I decided to get out into the garage for some Squats.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/bar, 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/4 reps, 315lbs/1 rep, (knee wraps) 315lbs/3 reps, 315lbs/1 rep, 335lbs/1 rep, 335lbs/2 reps, 335lbs/1 rep.

OMG! That felt HEAVY! But, wasn't I was embarrassed how pathetic my effort was. I know why I wasn't on form. My sleep this week has been horrible. I've been a week at trying to get used to a new CPAP machine and I haven't been sleeping. My strength is showing it bad. After the crappy Squats I decided to go for a walk/jog around the block.

Today was Bench Press and I went to the Strength Club.

Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 185lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 295lbs/3 reps, 5 sets/1 rep/345lbs.
Titan Ram Bench Press - 2 sets/6, 8, reps/295lbs.
Skipping - 4 sets/110, 120, 130, 140 reps.
OH Plate Ext - 2 sets/12 reps/45lbs.

Bench Press was pretty good. Still no where near as strong as I used to be. I decided to up the intensity a little and enjoy the wonderful warm, sunny weather by skipping out doors. I'm glad I did. Tonight I will be sitting in my garage, listening to records and enjoy some beer.
