My last session with my personal trainer was Tuesday night. To test my progress we decided that I was going to do an all around max out workout. It was so much fun I highly recommend every once in a while you grab a friend or trainer and do a max out workout as well. I love pushing myself to new limits and finding out just exactly how strong I am.
First we started out with sit-ups… My abs have been getting pretty strong since I’ve been following my ab workout on a regular basis. I have not done regular sit-ups in a long time so I had no idea what type of goal to shoot for!
300! Yea I did 300 sit-ups and could have done some more but it was time consuming.
Next up was planks… That did go so well! My shoulders were already tired from the Insanity workout I did in the morning. I think I only lasted a bit over 1 minute. Oh well I did 300 sit-ups right before
After we wore out my abs I moved on to the bench press. My previous max was 105 pounds which I did a couple of months ago. This week I was able to do 110 with some help. Not as much as I would have liked but I have not been working on it like I should.
After my arms could move no more we moved on to the squat. Perviously 115 was my max. I knew I could do better than that. Slowly I built the weight up to 155 which I did two solid repetitions of.
I love squatting, don’t ask why!
So here are my results:
110 Pound Bench Press
155 Pound Squat
I can’t wait to beat those numbers!
Today is the last day of my work conference in DC. I plan on going for an afternoon run. Any suggestions on where I should run in our capital?
