Pull Day with the 5's

Didn't have very much sleep last night. Got back late from Tulsa, wasn't tired, so I decided to start watching Somewhere in Time starring my doppelganger Christopher Reeves until I fell asleep. I became too invested in the story and had to shut it off before it was finished. I will finish it tonight! Good movie so far.

Woke up a little under 203 (202.7 to be exact) which is really low for me at 6:30am. This makes sense though since I've been purposefully under eating to maintain energy during my rehearsals...this probably doesn't make sense to you, but I'll explain in a later post about this.

Nice Hair Cut, bro.

It's another freezing morning. I don't plan on setting any crazy PR's today, but I'm looking forward to the work. Time to train.

Warm up: 15 min of elliptical

Pull Ups
Body weight + 45lbs
5x5



These were tough. I need to drop the weight and do 5x8 with a 25lb. It shall be done...you better follow through future Yeargain.

Bent over rows
195lbs
5x8

Long ass legs...


These felt great. 

Rack Pulls
245
5x8

Easy money. 

Face pulls
160lbs
5x9

These felt incredibly easy. Such energy!

Bicep Curls
70lbs
5x11

Damn, my wrists are all out of whack, gotta fix that.


Near the last sets, things were starting to get hard. Taking more of a pause at the bottom. Damn good pump, though.

Extra Shit:

Pause Bench Press
1 set 185lbs for 5
1 drop set 135lbs for 8

1 set of Squats
135 x 12

Captains chair leg raise
5lbs
3x12

I have no idea why I look so serious...so focused!

15 min of StairMaster

This was an exquisite workout. I got everything finished before my shift at 9am. Including the extra shit and my StairMaster torture. Perhaps sleep is overrated. I hope that my training continues to progress as such, and I think it will as long as I'm thoughtful about my programming and make sure I stay well.

No Tulsa tonight, thank the lord. I'm exhausted. I'm going to eat a small feast, and then hopefully put myself into a little bit of a coma and rest up for another awesome chest workout in the morning and performance at night. Peace!
