ME Back/Bench

Yesterday:
We ran a mock Navy PRT April 3. I had 41 pushups and 54 situps. When it came time to run the 8 lap, 1.5 mile course I wimped out after the 3 lap, walked the 4th, then ran the other 4 in disgust. It was a 14:55 run: I was told by the lady who ran the show that running it would have shaved about 45 seconds off the time. On the one hand, I'm happy because the last time I ran it I only did so for 2 laps so it was an improvement. But, come on, I shouldn't have let my motivation slip.

Today:
Did not run at lunch, since I ran yesterday and did not want to run 6 straight days. Today ended the first of three waves I wanted to run before June's PRT. Looking back it went great but it seemed like it would never end (since I was sick). This next one will be fun: though my PRT is in June, I want to pass the bodyfat in May so I don't have that pressure on my back. An 18" neck and 39" waist is what I would need, but I'm gunning for more than that.

T-Bar Rows: Worked up to a 115 lbs 5RM.

Incline Bench Press: My original intention was 5x5 with 160 lbs but 3 reps into the first set, I knew I wouldn't be able to complete it in good form. So I did 10 sets of 3 reps with 160 lbs and that went better.

Snatch Grip Deadlifts: 145x5, 165x5, 185x5, 205x5, 235x5 (5RM).

Superset:
DB Preacher Curls: 20x10, 25x10, 30x8, 15x12
DB Lateral Raises: 12x10, 15x10, 15x7, 10x10

Hammer Shrug: 100x5, 120x5, 140x5, 160x5
