Day 1: Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Squat: 2x8 @ 65lbs, 1x10 @ 65lbs. Need to add more weight.
Leg Curls: 3x8 @ 60lbs.
Calf raise: 1x10 @ bodyweight, 1x20 @ bodyweight. Need to find a way to balance better while doing these, and a way to make my feet not hurt.

Benchpress: 2x8 @ 70lbs, 1x10 @ 65lbs. Good working weight, goal: Go for 3x8 with 70lbs next time.
Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 1x8 @ 25lbs 2x8 @ 30lbs. Goal: go for 3x8 at 30lbs next workout.
Close Grip Benchpress: 3x8 @45lbs. Could possibly add some weight, must remember to let arms rest for a while after bench and DB shoulder.

(note: this is being posted today because I was unable to get to a computer on Tuesday or Wednesday.)

For sure, its one of the few sports I am naturally pretty good at. I could definately be a better player (I'm working on my outside shot right now), but its one of those things I just enjoy doing, even shooting foul shots for an hour is fun.

Day 3: Tuesday, August 28

*Leg Press: 2x8 @ 120lbs, 1x8 @ 140lbs
Leg Curl: 4x10 @ 60lbs
Calf Raises: 3x10 @ bodyweight. Going to add weight next time.

**Bench Press: 2x8 and 1x10 @ 50lbs + bar weight. I'm not sure of the weight of the bar in a smith machine.
DB press: 2x8, 1x6, 1x4 @ 22.5lbs each arm.
**Close Grip Bench: 3x8-10 @ 20lbs + bar, 1x6 @ 40lbs. One of the 20lbs sets was originally warm-up, but I couldnt handle 40lbs, so I did 2 more of the 20lbs sets.

*Done because the benchpress bar was broken, and I use that for my squats because my local rec center gym has no squat rack.
**Done in a Smith Machine for the above reason.
