DAY 10: Chest, Back and Sweet Potatoes!!

Woke up early and headed to the gym for my chest and back workout. Nothing special but just feel kinda annoyed with who people sit at the machines and use dumbbells. I mean, please be considerate. If you aren’t using the machine, go somewhere else!

Anyways, here’s today’s workout:

Chest fly 45lbs    10X5 setsAssisted pull up 25kg   10X5 sets
Bench press 35kg    10X1 set
Bench press 37.5kg  10X3 sets
Bench press 35kg    10X1 set
Vertical row 45lbs    10X5 sets
Lat pull down 40kg    10X5 sets
Hyperextensions 5kg   10X5sets
Bent over barbell row 20kg   10X5sets
Treadmill  10min
Burpees 10
