The lighter ones were essentially warm ups/just see where I'm at. It's been almost a year odd since I've been to a gym consistently, so I figured it was best to gradually work up to get a gauge.
Ohh that makes sense, it has the added benefit of preventing injury etc.
Some pulldowns, and a bunch of machines(chest press, curls, fly, reverse fly). Then about 10 mins on the treadmill(which again died once I put it up to 10mph)+some abs.
Edit; deadlifts were a bit odd. First set, didn't totally keep good form. Second set was superfast. Third set was also ok, but grip went after the 3rd rep, so I did the last two reps mixed grip.
Squats ok, but my left knee still slightly dodgy. Don't think it helped I was on slightly uneven ground. OHP fairly fine, but shoulders do go quickly! Again in and out in maybe 3/4s an hour, so not much rest time there.
Bunch of lat pulldowns, reverse fly, curls, flys, wrist curls. Quick bit on the treadmills/cross trainer/abs.
In and out in under an hour, not bad!
Rest time still extremely minimal. Squats pretty easy. Last rep of last set of bench was tough, but as I say, even less rest than squats there. Rows pretty easy. Sorta feel like I should be doing some more leg assistance given how much upper body I am, but I suspect squats will get hard enough soon.
Bunch of machines(hammer chest press, pulldowns, back hypers, some pullups, curls, reverse flys, flys, shoulder thing). Treadmill for 10 mins, abs, home.
Squats nice and easy, stands were too high though, so I had to calf raise it out really. Bit stupid. OHP form was terrible for the first 3 sets, kept going away from my face, last two sets not too bad. Last set was pretty hard though. Deadlifts not too hard, second set again very fast, and last set did mixed grip the last two reps. Still not keeping the bar close enough to the shin though, and back might be rounding a bit, I'm not sure.
Curls, lat pulldowns, rows, shoulder press, flys, reverse flys, shoulder lifts thing, dips machine.
8:30 on the treadmill at 9mph, abs. Maybe coulda made it to the 10 mins I planned, but hadn't eaten since about 1, and it was 7, so decided to get back and get some good.
Lat pulldowns, reverse flys, flys, curls, DB bench, shoulder raise,. Half mile at 9mph, 3:30 odd. Little bit of abs.
Took slightly longer rest on OHP today, was helpful. Last rep on 4th and 5th sets were hard. Squat was pretty poor I think, folded up a bit. Back was super pumped by deadlifts, which were pretty hard. Need to focus on form more, keep the back straight(I couldn't see, but I'm not certain I did). Also bar still tracking too far from my shins. Otherwise not too bad. Calves were super tight by the time I was gonna do any running, so I just had a short one.
Edit-oh! Also found the log and did a couple of cleans with that. Tough stuff. Contemplated trying to press it, but wasn't gonna happen with my shoulders/legs as fried as they were!
