You know you’re burning out when you don’t even have the motivation to bench press. 😉

Really, it’s not benching that’s the issue — it’s the massive amount of reps. Rep work isn’t my favorite thing, but no question it’s what builds muscle. Still, I look forward to getting back to when “high reps” means “8 reps”, but I know those days aren’t for many more months while I continue on the diet plan. I have to focus on building (retaining/maintaining) muscle while I shed the fat. It’s all good, and I’m learning a lot.

All in all, a fair day. No real complaints. I expect I’ll have another weight bump here soon, which makes me happy. I repeat, it’s great to see forward progress in the gym again. I do miss it so, especially because I know what my next goal is and that won’t happen unless I see forward progress in the gym. Every day, a little better. No complaints.
