Lifting at Lunch

Good lunch time workout today!

3 x 5 @ 185lbs

Overhead Press
3 x 5 @ 75lbs

3 each of Front and both Sides
30 secs with 20 sec recovery

Push Ups
5 sets of 5

Squats went well--every one past parallel.

I almost didn't get the last press locked out but I did get it.

The planks are hard!! I read an article which called for doing these in two-minute increments. I was shaking at 30 seconds. I'm going to do these as sets of four so I'll get the two minutes worth of work, but I'll try to gradually reduce the recovery time.

I thought I'd try treating a push up like any other strength exercise. I recovered between 60 and 90 seconds between sets. I failed on the fourth rep of set #5.

Good work!!!
