Day 7: Build Chest and Tris
Today was Build Chest and Tris again. Last week, my chest didn't hurt that bad, but my triceps were killing me for a few days. This time, I used heavier weights for some of the chest presses. I'm hoping that means I will be a bit sore in my chest. It's not that I'm into the pain or anything, but I just don't think I hit my chest as hard as I could have last week. I know I fried my triceps, but my chest just didn't feel it. Today I really focused on using my chest muscles to do the moves. The push ups were sooooooo hard though! I thought I was going to fall on my face. After each round of push ups, I didn't have the strength in my triceps to push myself up off the floor! The pace of this workout seemed really slow. There was a lot of time between moves. Some of it was because they had to get new weights, but some of it just seemed excessive. I feel like this workout could have been about 10 minutes shorter if there had been less resting. I suppose I probably did need the rest though since this really fried my triceps, but while I was doing it, it just seemed drug out. I still love the workout and love Sagi.
He's constantly reminding us to write the weights down. I've never been much for writing stuff down. Even when I was going to the gym, I couldn't take the time to write the weights down. I'm doing it for this. I'm actually gladd too since I can compare my weights from week to week. I went up in some of these because of my notes from last week.

The two minutes of activity was probably from the warm up. It's going to be a long 3 months looking at this crappy numbers. I have to be burning a ton of calories. I'm ripping my muscles to shreds and then rebuilding. I'm pretty much always craving a giant steak.
