Daily Workout - Chest in Home Gym

I took a few days off to catchup, I had a bit of jet-lag from the Texas trip, it almost felt like I was coming down with something but I never did get anything! So this morning was the first time I actually felt like I had some energy to do a workout so I got in while I still felt good and did a morning Chest Workout.

  • Warmup: Ellipticl -  12 minutes.
  • Bench Press with Smith Machine - 3 sets.
  • Incline Dumbbell Flies - 3 sets.
  • 3 Stage Pushups: Planche, Extended, and Regular.
  • Abs: 100 Crunches.
  • Misc. Stretching.

Total workout time: About 1 hour.

Daily Workout - Chest - Home Gym

On Saturday I did something to my back and I have to be honest it's still bothering me a fair bit! It is getting slowly better so I'll continue to take it easy until I'm back to 100%. I did manage to get some cardio in today and an easy chest workout, I kept it a bit lighter and I did find that once I was in the actual set, my back felt good. It was the getting the weight into place part that I felt it mostly in my back.

  • Warmup: Eliptical for 10 minutes.
  • Bench Press with Smith Machine.
  • Incline Dumbbell Flies. (Light)
  • 3 Stage Pushups: Planche, Extended, and Regular. (Back seemed OK with this)
  • Misc. Stretching.

Total workout time: About 1 hour.

  • Narrow Chin-ups - 3 sets of 8-10.
  • Standing bent over rows - 3 sets of 10-12.
