Weighted Pull ups
45lbs + body weight
6th set body weight for 8
These felt heavy. Not super clean. I'm going reevaluate my next step. Maybe do 5x8 with 25lbs
Bent over rows
These felt a bit heavy, but they were legit and cleeeeaaan.
Upper back, y'all!!!!! Increasing weight!
I was able to keep around 8 fairly clean, but I had to use momentum to get the last few. I think I'm going to do 160 for 8 next week.
These were cleeaaaan! Movin to 5x10 next week
Now for the weird stuff I did.
Incline pause Bench Press
3 sets 8-7-5
I let the bar sit on my chest for a full second, let it sink into the meat then push off hard.
1 set of squats
135 for a goofy 8 reps
Weighted cable crunches
150 til failure
About 43 reps
Captains chair knee raises
Why did I do all of the extra.
1.) I had the time and energy to do so
2.) I've effectively hit all of my muscles 3 times this week, something I'm considering doing from now on.
3.) more work means more calories later...
Today is 6 hours of late night tech work for Elmer Gantry at Tulsa Opera. The number 1 thing keeping me happy is that the crew BBQ is tonight! All the food! Gotta eat to grow! Yolo!!!!
