Good deal on the varied works Luna.
Didnt train yesterday. I felt like i was coming down with something so i took an extra rest day before it became anything serious. Instead, i bought the carb backloading book, read it in 12 hours and was then sad it finished. However, i also got excited, and will now ditch all traditional nutrition knowledge and start this on Monday. Jacked and ripped here i come.

Feeling much better today.
Warm up stuff
Bench press, doubled mini bands
barxmany <- add doubled mini's
Tension was pretty tough. I benched in our regular bench press (not the rack) so i had the bands set up lower than normal.
DB Incline Press
DB Tricep Extensions
15x35kg (75lbs) <- 10 secs rest
10x35kg (75lbs) <- 10 secs rest
DB Hammer curl
when is the big max test day, luna?
Nice work!!! I need to start doing more back work like Kroc rows and barbell rows.
I don't know why you foreigners try to cater to us dumb Americans who us our "Standard" Measuring system.
You should make us do the damn conversions in our head every time!
48 kgs X 2.2 = 105
Then we might be smarter in Maffth.
Down with Standard: Up with Metric. That's something you all got right.

Consistency is the key to success within this sport...
Kroc rows are high rep DB Rows with the heaviest dumbbell you can find, made famous by Matt Kroczaleski. I normally perform them with my knee on a bench but this time i just leaned on the DB rack. I was a little more upright (just barely) but got a much better stretch in the bottom.
Great work, Luna!
T+P - funny thing is, you come to England and all our weights are in kilos, but go outside onto the street and all our roadsigns are in miles...

solid stuff man. where did you get your bands and stuff? what gear do you own? or is it at the gym?
Please continue to lift raw. Please.
Complicated routine is complicated.
This is what Luna does before every workout for his programming.
inb4 Belial comes in to explain above equation and call me an idiot.

Hahaha. It is funny how you forget literally everything you learn in college. I remember getting an A in calculus 2 and I have no idea what that equation means.
Why does your ME day have bands? You should be going for 1-3 rep maxes with straight weight on your ME days with different bench movements. Since your bench needs the most work it seems, I would rotate regular bench, close grip bench, and pin, floor press, or board press. I think you're getting too fancy with all these bands/chains/slingshots etc.

It might all seem complicated, and it probably is, but i feel its good to try things out. I have always done straight weight, big 3 exercises. If i retest in a couple of weeks and it didnt work, i will do what i did before.
I got a C in calc, and deserved a D, but that problem doesnt look too bad.
limits are gay tho.
