Upper body workout things (chest, shoulders, tris) 💪🏻. My body was feeling a little beat up so I took a deload week last week to let myself recover a little. Most of my workouts were at my condo gym and lighter so I was ITCHING to get to the gym to do a proper workout today 🙈.
Heeeere's what I did:
Bench press - 4x6
Wall push-ups (or other plyo push-up) - 3x6-8
Standing single arm db shoulder press (no vid) - 3x10 (each arm)
Db lateral raises - 3x10
ss Bent over rear delt raises - 3x12
Sphinx push-ups - 3x10
I was supposed to start with benching buuut it was ocupado and while normally I'd wait (as I start sessions with my heavier compound lifts), I decided to do some wall push-ups first. It's fine, it wasn't a super heavy bench day 😝.
Remember you can always scale plyo push-ups and reduce reps if you want to do them but you're a little intimidated. You can start on your knees or on an incline (hands on bench), which you build up your strength and confidence. And remember to warm up well (including your wrists).

10 non-fitness related things about me! Posted this a year ago but thought it might be cool to run through again.
1️⃣ I went to boarding school for the duration of high school. It probably explains why I often try to deal with any issues I have on my own & rarely reach out to people for help.
2️⃣ Prior to that, I lived with my family in the U.K. for almost three years. We lived in a small town called Gerrard's Cross in Buckinghamshire.
3️⃣ I am the oldest of three kids - I have two younger sisters.
4️⃣ I used to spend the majority of my school holidays skateboarding at the local skate-park pretending I was Tony Hawk. I was absolutely rubbish. I hurt myself a lot.
5️⃣ I have a love affair for cars & modifying them. I've owned seven in my life, including three Subaru WRX's worked to their absolute limits, a Stage 2+ Golf R with competition spec audio install & a relatively untouched Audi RS5. Currently selling an 09 STi if anyone is interested 😏
6️⃣ I have completed half of a Bachelor's Degree in Commerce. I doubt I'll finish it, as much as my mum would like me to.
7️⃣ My first job was in landscape maintenance - a glamorous way to put wearing high-visibility shirts & mowing local parks. I also worked as a pizza delivery boy before entering the fitness industry. I ate more pizzas than I delivered.
8️⃣ Growing up I was a huge PlayStation fan. Spyro, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Need for Speed & Grand Theft Auto were my jam. So much so, I bought myself a PS4 when I moved out, but still haven't yet played it four years later.
9️⃣ My boyhood (and early adolescent) dream was to play cricket for Australia. I played a bit of first grade & in some youth-state squads but gave it away to pursue other things. I still absolutely love the game.
🔟 Favourite TV shows are The Walking Dead, How to Get Away With Murder, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother.
