Benching in my Sleep

Tough sleep last night. Couldn't make it past 2am since I'm still on Europe time. Mind you, I couldn't keep my eyes open past 7:15pm last night, so I did get a decent nights sleep. Still, I needed some caffeine pre-workout, and I've had some Paleo Protein with stevia. Tomorrow should be CASS-Free.

(CASS = Caffeine, alcohol, sweetener, soda)

Today's Workout was good times. I was a little too full from breakfast and that was uncomfortable for the Chest-Supported Rows, but other than that it turned out better than expected. Sets 1 & 2 of the bench press were weak but my nervous system got 'excited' and finished strong on the remainder.

- Face Pulls
- Pushups

1A) Bench - 5x5
1B) CSR - 5x10

2A) Incline Bench
2B) Pullup - 4xMax + 10-second rest + 1-2 more reps

3A) Chinups
3B) Dips
3C) Farmer Walk

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Forget the past - except the lessons you learned from it. There's nothing you can do about it. It is the FUTURE where you must FOCUS. Stay positive. No one really likes a woe-is-me attitude. You don't attract good people into your life that way. Instead, stay strong. Get stronger. You can - and will - do it.

Push on,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
