THE BENCH PRESS

Today’s workout was a series of sets of BB bench presses.  I started light and worked my way up to a comfortable 2 rep max weight before working my way back down again.
Of course, my definition of light and heavy is a little distorted right now due to current circumstances, but it reminded me of this poem I wrote several years ago.

THE BENCH PRESS
High reps, low reps
Fast reps, slow reps
Weights that were heavy
Weights that were light
Some sets were easy
Some were a fight
The bar above me
Loaded with weight
My contracting muscles
In control of my fate
With nothing to lose
And so much to gain
Supine on the bench
The sweat it did rain
The triceps they shook
The pecs they did twitch
That workout was truly
A SON OF A BITCH
