Default Saturday (5/16) - Power Lifting

Well, after a two week layoff I'm back at it. I apparently had an e coli infection. NOT FUN! I needed the time off, but I'm feeling much better now. The silver lining in the whole experience was that I lost nearly 10 lbs. Therefore, I don't think I'll be doing much more cutting. I will still count calories to maintain a 2,000 calorie diet, but I'm going to really hit the weights from now on. When I was at my leanest, after all, I lifted weights exclusively. I guess my body responds best to that training. Anyway, on Saturday I did chest:

Flat bench barbell press:
185 x 5
190 x 4
195 x 3
200 x 2
205 x 1
210 x 1
215 x 1
220 x 1

Incline bench dumbbell press:
3 sets with 60 lbs./side
10, 10, 8 reps

High pulley cable rows:
3 sets of 10 reps at 20 lbs./side

Parallel bar dips:
10, 10, 8 reps

All in all, I was surprised at my strength level at this point. I had just dropped 10 lbs. due to my illness, yet I still maxed out my bench press at 220 lbs.

The next day (Sunday), I took the canoe out for a couple of hours. Paddling myself and my girlfriend around a lake was definitely a good workout.
