2012-02-13 workout – Wendler 5/3/1 program, cycle 6, bench 2

A good day.

“Week 2”

    • 2x5x45 (warmup)
    • 1x5x95
    • 1x5x110
    • 1x3x135
    • 1x3x155 (work)
    • 1x3x180
    • 1x7x200
  • Asst. #1 – Bench Press
    • 5 x 10 x 135
  • Asst. #2 – 1-Arm Dumbbell Rows
    • 5 x 10 x 60
  • GPP – Elliptical
    • 15 minutes, steady pace around 130 strides per minute, incline “10”, resistance “12”
  • Foam rolling

Today was kinda interesting. I wasn’t there mentally, but again, just felt strong. 7 reps with 200 was most acceptable, and I wasn’t even dialed in mentally or even physically! The assistance work was just a breeze, and I even did 5x1xbw chins after each set of assistance benching. I’ll take today.

I did realize that with the GPP, I just have to change it up. “Aerobics” have always been boring to me. I hate running, I hate walking. It’s all boring boring boring. The GPP routine of the “tabata” stuff was fine, but on the machine just bored the dickens out of me. So I figure well, something is better than nothing else I’ll totally fall off the wagon. So if I want to change it up, fine. Today was just a steady but fair pace. Whatever it takes to keep me on the wagon, y’know?

Oh, and I finally bought a foam roller for the house. Now I can roll whenever I want to. It’s just too good to do. Even Wife and Kiddos found it pleasant and relaxing to use.
