DAY 182: Overcoming limits

lifting strength

I feel that it is time to lift heavier weights for my weight lifting regime. For  a long time I have had a mental block on how much weight I should lift. This is mostly because sometimes I feel unstable when lifting and I was afraid that I would hurt myself. However, I have been get stronger day by day. Today I shall see if I have improved..

Reps Sets Exercise Comments, reps
1 10 5 Barbell shoulder press 33.5kg. 10, 10, 10, 10, 10
2 10 5 Bent over row 34.5kg. 10, 10, 10, 10, 10
3 10 5 Weighted pull ups 5kg. 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

I managed to lift heavier today and felt that despite the increase in weight, I was able to do all exercises safely and could complete the targeted number to reps and sets. This shall be my new bench mark.
