Good & bad news

  • Barbell shoulder press: 3 x 5, 3, 1

 

  • 75% of 90% of 1-RM: 60 lb, 3 x 5
  • 85% of 90% of 1-RM: 70 lb, 3 x 3
  • 95% of 90% of 1-RM: 75 lb, 5 rep max , 3 x 1+

 

This went over well, I believe about 4 or 5 weeks ago, I was hitting 70 lb for like 1 rep max and now I am able to do 75 lb for 5 rep max, very happy about this progress.

 
  • Barbell bench press: 5 x 5, 105 lb, 100 lb

My bench did not go over well at all today. I was able to hit 105 lb for 5 reps but only the first set, after that set, I was only hitting 3-4 reps, so I went down to 100 lb and was hitting my 5 reps until the last set and was only able to do 3 reps. Bench has never been my stronger suit in lifting but I want to improve it because I plateau in bench pressing more than I do in other lifts and it agitates me. I have found some ideas but it will be trial and error. Anyone else feel like their bench is slow to progress? 

 

My 1 rep max should be 135, but at this rate, I don’t know. GRR. 

 
  • DB seated shoulder press: 5 x 6, 60 lb
  • Smith machine upright row: 5 x 6, 90 lb
  • Side laterals to front raise: 5 x 6, 30 lb
  • DB rear delt row: 5 x 6, 80 lb

The assistance work today wasn’t too bad besides the last one (hard one). I am doing heavier assistance work this week and next week and lighter core lifts next week (deload week) so today’s core lifting was fairly heavy work.

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
