Upper body

Personal training with Paul

I've been feeling the symptoms of overtraining the past couple of days, and even a bit this morning when I got up. As before, it manifests itself with a flu-like ache in my chest, arms and shoulders. To be honest, I really wasn't looking forward to today's session because I didn't have much energy. However, I thought I might start to feel better once I got warmed up. I actually felt much better after this workout than at the start, and I barely have any of that aching feeling now.

For the record, it's well established that Paul's memory is better than mine, and I did actually train on Wednesday, contrary to what I'd suggested. However, he can't count for shit. Rather than paying attention to the reps I was doing, I think he was picking his lotto numbers.



Incline bench press - 35s x 10, 40s x 10, 8, 8
Push-ups - 16, 12, 8, 6


Pull downs - 100 x 10, 10, 8, 7
Straight arm pull downs - 70 x 10, 7, 7, 6


Lateral raises - 20s x 10, 9, 7
Military presses - 20s x 11, 8, 5


Chest supported row - 100 x 10, 10, 10
Reverse lateral raise - 40 x 10, 7, 5


For time:
50 sit-ups (strict)
50 Russian twists with 25lb plate (total)
25 sit-ups
25 Russian twists
Time = 7:53

I can count in Spanish, so at least I'll know if she's paying attention!
