Another PR: DB bench press; I may be aging, but don’t tell my body that!

I had another very satisfying workout last night (chest & abs). I broke my personal record for flat dumbbell bench press, performing 12/12/11/10 reps using the heaviest weight I’ve ever used for reps, all with perfect form. I also added 10 pounds (5 pounds per dumbbell) to my incline and decline press. There was some pain in my shoulders, and a little pain in my right elbow. The elbow pain is something I’ve felt before, but it seems to be a little more pronounced. I’m increasing my dosage of Chondroitin, MSM and Glucosamine to see if that helps at all.

A little over a week from today I’m going to turn 38 years old. A lot of people dread their birthdays as they get older, but I don’t feel that way at all. I feel better, look better and I am stronger than I’ve ever been in my life. As I age I’m finding new challenges to overcome (stuff like the pain in my elbow, for example), but I’m not going to let anything get in my way. I’m going to continue to improve my health each and every year. Weight training, cardiovascular exercise and a sound diet have changed my life. In fact, I’m positive that those things saved my life. I may be almost 38 years old, but I still feel like I did when I was 20. That’s pretty amazing considering that less than four years ago I felt like I had one foot in the grave!
