Went to a friend's wedding this weekend and had a blast. Figured it was a good time to change the routine up a bit. Going to incorporate ME/DE days with hypertrophy stuff mixed in, à la Belial's routine. Will see how my body handles it, but good start today. Haven't done a 1RM in a long time. Nearly had 2 full reps on 285.
Weather is absolutely perfect in CLT now... that means there's going to be a lot of trauma this evening. :swear:
Nice, bench is shootin up quick.
Good day on the bench.
Thanks, Bako and Cokie.
warmup x4, 315 x3, 345 x1, 365 x1, 385 x1, 395 x1, 315 x5, 225 x5 <- felt really good with these. I had presyncope at the top of 395, though. Anyone know how to prevent this? Maybe spending less time squatted down in the sumo position before the pull since this causes a lot of blood to pool into my lower body.
Then a few sets of cable rows, machine preacher curlz, machine laterals, and pulldowns.
Bought a crock pot today. Time to increase my kcals!
Generous output going on these days.
Nice #'s on both ME sessions. Damn near 300 and 400... it's only a matter of time. Next ME workout for the 400 DL.
Great job on the workouts! Had to look up presyncope to find out what it meant. But what you said makes sense if you're spending a lot of time before the pull - can't say I've ever experienced that.
And the presyncope thing... I basically nearly passed out at the top. Eep.
Cardio <- I do this every once and a while. :)
Jog x34 minutes
followed by a few sets of leg presses
Okay, so my current maxes are bench 285, DL 395, and squat 310. Let's get those bitches up!
Oh yeahhh, Coke!
BB bench: warmup x3, 200 x5 sets of 6-10 reps
followed by machine flyes, standing Smith OH presses, BB skullcrushers
Then a 20 minute jog since it was nice and sunny outside.
Gonna make my routine consist of rotating ME and light (70% 1RM) days. Let's see how this goes.
Solid push day effort.
Conventional DLs: warmup x4, 280x5 x5 sets <- good speed on these. It's funny how much easier working at 70% max of DLs are compared with my bench day. This didn't feel like much of a work out, really.
Followed by a few sets of cable rows, machine side laterals, machine preacher curlz, and machine rear laterals. Good workout. Had a lot of cheating this weekend when I went to go look for a place in Georgia, so I had a lot of energy. Hopefully that translates to my ME days later this week... although I am on night shifts currently.
Good luck in the upcoming transition man.
Coke: Thanks, bro.
warmup x3, 225 x 6 sets of 5, rest-pause. Had a nice 2 second pause at the bottom of each rep. Felt good. That was it for today.
Curls for the girls.
Fuck, almost had it. Slowed down in the middle. At least my bench went up 10 pounds since last time... I can't ask for more than that.
Then did some incline DB flyes, standing Smith millies, BB skullcrushers.
Night 5 of 6 in the ED, baby. Getting the new car Monday! Will post pics.
Glad to see the spike taking place on your bench these days.
Also, great hearing you're getting the new vehicle too - look forward to see it.
Coke - got my last night shift tonight, then I bet I'm not even going to be able to sleep thinking about the car, lol
followed by DB rows, machine side laterals, chris mason pulldowns, and machine preacher curlz
Man, there were 3 other people doing DLs when I got there. Never seen more than one. It was cool and annoying at the same time. The nice part was that none of them were pulling more than 315, so I felt good doing mine. Will have 405 next time.
T minus 46 hours until the car.
nice work out, 405 should be cake next time around. Sorry if i missed it, what car?
Big man with the deads up in there, lol - we knew that.
