As predicted in Part 2, I nailed the Dips. I focused on three exercises today.
- Dips – Have I mentioned how much I loathe high repetition training? But I really want to be Decent, so I needed to hit 20 reps. After completing the 20 reps, I grabbed a weight belt and resumed my low-rep weighted dips.
- Bench Press – My only Decent bench press was back in May 2007. I’m more of a incline dumbbell guy, so I’m just starting to revisit the classic flat barbell bench press. Today I benched my weight (200) for 3 reps. Since I work out in a Glitter Gym, it will be tough finding someone to spot me as I approach 225.
- Skull Crusher – Added 5 more pounds to this ridiculous exercise. I’ve already hit Decent and think that Good is possible by spring.
My 2008 Training Scorecard is now 7/12 Decent. Looking at the table I’m guessing it will be several weeks before I hit another Decent milestone. However, my first Good score is within reach on the Pull-Ups.
