Wendler cycle 6 week 1/bench

201.6


Stayed up way too late again. Purely my fault. But my old friend was in town and I wasn't gonna leave early just for sleep. I'll make up for it in nap city.

Warm up: 15 min on elliptical 

Bench press

I got 6
DC 4-3-3


I knew right away that I had overextended myself for this workout. I failed at my attempt for a 7th rep. My energy and strength was not where it needed to be for this workout. I pushed through though.

Overhead press


I got 6
DC 4-4-3


These surprised me. I believe it's because my shoulders are not nearly as taxed as my chest, but I performed better at these than my chest movements. Crazy.

Incline Dumbbell press
80 x 5
75 x 5 x 4

65lbs x 8

Lol. I went up for 80s and could not lift them. My chest was drained. So, I decided. The rest of this workout is going to have to be pure Hypertrophy. So, I took the blow to the ego and I got to work.

Dips
57.5
5x6

Body weight
5x10


These were great. Light, fast, but still had to dig for those last reps.

Skull crushers
90lbs
5x10

I decided to go with the original weight. I had to fight and grit for it, but I got it.

Weighted ab crunches
180
5x15

Easy.

Pull ups
10lbs x 11

Life hands you lemons. Get a fuckin pump.


20 min of stairmaster.
