Lifted weights while son swam and had planned to swim this evening after a 10k race committee meeting at the Y, but discovered when I went down to the pool that the entire pool was being used for a scuba class. Scuba class was not on schedule yet, so I had no idea.

Glad I was at least able to get my weights in today. I'm back to heavy weights for two more weeks and then a week of deload before taking two weeks off completely.

Squats: bar (45 pounds) x 20

Bench: bar x 5, 75 x 10, 85 x 8, 100 x 5

Lat hi row: 90 x 5, 120 x 10, 130 x 8, 140 x 6

Military press: 2 sets of 40 x 10

Triceps press: 2 sets of 40 x 10

Hammer curls: 2 sets of 10 x 15

Leg press: 130 x 5, 170 x 10, 190 x 8, 210 x 5

Leg curls: 45 x 10, 50 x 8, 55 x 6

Bicycle crunches: 1 set of 100

Good morning darlings: 1 set of 50

Torso twists (or Broomstick Twists as Fort likes to call them) 1 set of 30

Toe raises: 3 sets of 10

Also held the bridge poisition twice to stretch out the lower back. Didn't time, but I'm guessing 20-25 seconds.

    Broomstick twists seems more appropriate in a way. You can do something called torso twists (which is actually without a broomstick) sitting on the floor. On the other hand, it would be awfully hard to do a broomstick twist as well while sitting on the floor. I'd be afraid I might take out somebody's knees.
