Worked those guns very well dude.
solid work in here! i also prefer the gym atmosphere over home gyms. on the other hand, i hate people. in conclusion, my own gym within a gym would be ideal.
ATF squats: warmupx3, 225x8, 245x6, 245x6, 245x6, 265x2
followed by leg presses and DB lunges
Not too bad, considering I'm operating on 5 hours of sleep right now... just glad to be done with nights for a little while.
Do you bother with the weight on lunges? Do you just like to get after it and get the feel on them?
I did them last week... I always forget how much they hit that ham/glute area. I was using a longer stride for them.
Leg session is ace man.
Good job sticking with the workout on a lack of sleep! Nice squatting. Wish I could do atf squats. I just don't have the flexibility yet. But it's come a long way in the past 3-4 weeks I've been working on it.
Flat bench: warmupx3, 245x6, 255x3, 255x2, 255x3, 255x3 dropped to 225x5
Then HS press, incline flyes, and some machine shiznit.
There was no one in the gym today that was heavier than 150 pounds. So unmotivating. :(
Geez, I'd find that really motivating being the biggest one in the gym haha. Nice benching.
Solid benching and all bro.
Sumo DLs: warmupx4, 275x6, 325x6, 345x5, 355x4, 355x3, 355x3 - was happy with the progression here.
followed by corner rows with 4 plates, chris mason-style underhanded pulldowns, DB rows, HS high rows.
Great workout. I think my recovery sweet-spot is a week.
Aight, time to go to bed. One more night shift tonight and done for a while. W00t.
Fine effort for the back.
BB upright rows: warmup x4, 125x10, 135x6, 135x6, 140x6, 145x5, 145x5 dropped to 95x10
followed by standing Smith presses, assorted machine lateral stuff.
Anyone have lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) before from weightlifting? I can usually push through stuff like this, but it gets so aggravated by side laterals and upright rows. So fucking annoying. I know I should just take a break from movements that aggravate it, but I want hyooge delts.
I have the same symptoms too at times, luckily it comes and goes. What helped me in the past was some glucosamine chondroitin tablets, discomfort subsided after a couple of weeks in my case. Good luck with that.
BB curls: warmup x3, 105x8, 115x8, 115x7, 115x7, 115x5+2 dropped to 95x5
Straight bar skull crushers: warmup x3, 35s x8, 40s x6, 40sx 5, 40s x5 <- not sure how much this bar weighs, but I'm guessing as much as a standard EZ curl bar
followed by DB alternating curls, rope pushdowns, and some machine stuff until gym closing.
Felt like my arms were gonna explode. I'm sure I looked like an inflated lat syndrome d-bag.
Aren't upright rows infamous for elbow/cuff pain/injuries? I use dumbells when I do them, I find it to be much more comfortable. And the cleanz hit the traps harder than anything!!
ATF squats: warmup x3, 245x5, 245x5, 245x4, 245x4, 245x4, 225x5
followed by leg presses and DB lunges.
Got 6 hours of sleep last night, so I'm blaming that for my lack of strength today. Sigh. I even had a cheat meal last night, too.
On a side note, is Kevin Levrone anyone else's fav bodybuilder? I swear, I cannot see how this guy never won the Olympia. No one in the past or present compares to him when he was in top conditioning, IMHO. His side most-muscular pose is the best I've seen:
Levrone is indeed one of the all time greats, my own cousin used to say Levrone was the best.
Very nice with the arm and leg work.
BB bench: warmup x3, 235x5, 235x4, 235x3, 235x3, 235x3, 225x5
followed by HS declines and machine flyes.
Strength is going down. I think it's time to change my routine soon or something, although my food and sleep this week has been shitty. I've been carb starving a bit since my friend is having a beach wedding this weekend. Any recommendations?
Don't hospitals have milk machines? Like the soda dispenser, but milk? I'd take advantage of that when eating good is difficult on your schedule. I wish I had one of those in my house lol. One day....
Sumo DLs: warmup x4, 335x5, 335x5, 335x5, 335x5, 335x3, 225x8
followed by a few sets of cable rows
Only had 40 mins, so had to make the workout quick!
Saw a funny patient last night with trichophagia who was like "Please, I need someone to cut the hairball out of my stomach!" I was like wtf, that shit cray. Ended up CT scanning her anyway and of course it was normal. I should have known that it would be impossible to convince her that she didn't, in fact, have a hairball in her stomach. Psychiatry consult, please!
There are some weird people in this world, that's for sure.
That's putting in work Doc, lol...great focus with the sumos.
