Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 40



Last week I had a couple of good workouts at the gym. Here are the results of those workouts:


Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018

seated machine press

230 lb x5x2

210 lb x5x2


fixed barbell standing overhead press and hold

110 lb x5x30s


Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018

fixed barbell standing overhead press and hold 

110 lb x7x30s


farmer's walk 

100 lb dumbbells in each handx3


dumbbell shrugs

45 lb dumbbells in each hand x25x5


machine lateral pull down

110 lb x6x1 pronated grip

110 lb x10x4 pronated grip 

110 lb x10x5 supinated grip


Last Tuesday I was dealing with the effects of an autumn cold so I had an abbreviated workout and I went with 110 pounds; still, I was pleased with the results.  The workout last Saturday was better; I had planned to lift heavier but the Olympic bars were all taken, so I had to go with the heaviest fixed barbells that were available which just so happened to be 110 pounds;  although this was five pounds less than my planned weight it felt good to be exercising. 

I also carried heavier dumbbells for my farmer's walk exercise and I plan to gradually increase the amount up to and even beyond what the gym of five years ago had to offer (120-pound dumbbells). 

I'll gradually work in other exercises including deadlifts, t-bar rows, bent over rows and the other exercises that I enjoyed so much.

Next week, I plan to lift heavier than 110 pounds when I do the standing barbell overhead press and hold. I'll keep you posted.


But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14
