Avast! Unimpressive numbers lie ahead me hearties!
Since I'm still near a raw beginner level, I'm currently on a full-body split. It's a fairly standard 3-day per week routine.
Pull-ups (As many as possible in 10 minutes)
Today was the "A" workout. Today's numbers:
Squats - 175 3x10
Bench - 200 3x10 (I will explain how that number is higher than my squat below)
Bent-over rows - 115 3x10
The squats were a real grinder. On the last set, I was pausing at the top to catch a couple of big breaths for each additional rep after about the 6th rep. Since today's squat session was so damn hard, I might stick with 175 again next time and see if it's nearly as difficult as today.
You're probably looking at my bench like "WTF? How is his bench so much higher than his squat?" I use a Powertec Multi-System for my benching so it's really like a machine bench press. My true bench is probably much, much lower, but I don't have a setup for traditional bench pressing so I will stick with what I have. Anyway, 3x10 at 200 wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be. I struggled with the last two reps of the third set, but that was about it.
Rows were rows. I've been jumping up 5lbs per session on rows and haven't missed any reps or stalled out on it thus far. I'm pleased with that.
By the way, I'll post a photo of the gym I have in my shed later so you can all see what I'm working with. There is an actual gym about about 10 minutes from my house...but it doesn't even have a power rack. And it has to be less than 2000 sq ft. So...yeah. The only gym worth becoming a member of is about 35 minutes away and that's just too far for convenience. I believe my setup is nice so I'm eager to hear what you guys think of it.
