Fitness Log 2014-01-20: Bench, Running, etc.

Today was an experiment in time management by grouping exercises together rather than taking full rest periods.


  • Warmup: 45 lbs x 5, 135 x 5, 165 x 5, 185 x 3
  • 205 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 8
  • 450m around block x 4 (between sets)

8 reps at 205 is okay.  It matches my previous best so at least it is not a step backward.

I threw in runs around the block during the rest periods to try to get a total of one mile of running in.  I don’t think it affected the bench sets much, if at all.

Accessory Circuit

  • DB Incline Curls: 35 x 10, 7
  • Close Grip Bench: 155 x 8, 2 (not enough rest)

I didn’t time these quite right.  I probably should set a 1 min timer at the end of an exercise to make sure I get at least a full minute between that exercising repeating.  In this case, I made sure there was 1 min between curl sets but didn’t time the bench sets so it ended up being bench -> curls -> bench and, as you can see, not enough rest.
