The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    I'm back...

    Bench Press
    135 lbs x 6
    155 lbs x 6
    185 lbs x 6
    205 lbs x 6
    225 lbs x 6 +2 +2 +2

    Bar Dips
    BW x 6
    +10 lbs x 6
    +20 lbs x 6
    +30 lbs x 6
    +40 lbs x 6 +2 +2 +2

    Barbell Curls
    Bar x 6
    65 lbs x 6
    95 lbs x 6 +2 +2 +2

    Notes:
    As you can see I'm playing it smart and keeping things easy and managable to start with. Everything had a nice slow negative and an explosive lift. This workout was just challenging enough and every one of them had a slow last rep on the last cluster. My arms are absolutely pumped.

    I'm going to let the chatter die down on the other thread, then I'll lock it and link to this one.
    Besides, Tom Mutaffis had both threads going at the same time...So

    It has been a while since I read the HCT-12 articles. Do you get to mix it up with bands, chains, box variations, etc?

    The hip wide stance and high bar makes it a lot tougher, that's for sure. But, I swear I'm feeling it more in my quads now, which is what I'm after.

    I don't remember Daniel saying anything about bands and chains. Doesn't matter, I've never used those items anyways.

    At least I was able to drag three of you guys over here to cheer for me. I hope the others wan't forget about me. I was going to workout today, but I am so wiped out from a fly fishing trip I went on yesterday. It's the end of the season and bitterly cold. The fish were just shut down for the season, hunkered behind rocks and not going to move for anything. Which meant a lot of hiking and hard fishing for us stupid humans. I'm just feeling pretty beat up today, so I might wait until tomorrow to get it done in the garage. But, we'll see how I feel later tonight...

    If the fish dont want to come out mate you have no chance!

    I have a Cod fishing competition on the Solent (English Channel) this weekend, hope it will be a good day, going to be really really cold tho!


    I am sure no one will forget about you mate, it will be good to have someone who is followed so religiously back in the forum, it will hopefully mean a few drop by everyone elses journals too!

    Thanks, PIERCEY, my quads were sore for a couple of days, which isn't the usual.
