hqdefault[1]Over the weekend I finally managed to get my desired amount of cardio in with a two and a half mile run on Saturday flanked by a 20 mile bike ride on Sunday.  As long as my body agrees I would like to try to roll that endurance training into most weekends.

My left shoulder felt tweaked over the weekend, enough so that I told my gym buddy I wanted to cut back on the bench pressing, at least the amount of weight we were pushing.  Instead we capped the weight on the bar at 185 pounds but we did a lot more reps so I don’t know if I did myself any good swapping less weight for more numbers.

I also did a few sets on the Cybex rotary incline machine.  We kept the weight low but the reps high. I finished with 25 of the most painful push ups I have completed for quite a while.
