Day 45

  • Jun 19th, 2019 at 11:03PM

Super excited to report that today I did bench presses using the barbell - not light dumbbells or the machine, but the real thing. Didn’t use any plates and my form was shocking but am just thrilled that I was able to do it. After the first set I put the barbell back on the rack unevenly and someone rushed over to help which was so kind - must have been alerted by all the grunting. And yesterday Mike M kindly helped me to put on my plates for one of the exercises - yes, my 2.5 lb plates... people at the gym are so nice.
