hqdefault[2]This was my first gym session of the week since Monday was Labor Day and yesterday I didn’t have time to get to the gym.  I had it in my head that I was going to squat and do deadlifts today but when I realized I didn’t pack my Chuck Taylors I switched it up and decided to bench press instead.

Shortly afterward I set a random goal to complete a total of 40 bench press reps at 185 pounds which is approximately my body weight.  Of course the secondary goal is to do it in few sets as possible.  It took me 6 sets to get there, my pushing muscles felt thoroughly wrecked by the end of it.

I then sat on the VMX rope machine and set a new personal best, pulling 600 continuous feet at the highest resistance setting. It took me just under four minutes to do it.
