Training day 03-14-2013

So today I read on Lift Big, Eat Big’s Twitter feed that today is International Spandex Day… now that may not be correct but as 99% of you know, if you read it online… you gotta know that shit is true!

So I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods and picked up a pair of black Under Armour. Why? Because I can.

Since I dressed like a bodybuilder (minus that awesome blue Shelby Cobra shirt that is a favorite….) I decided to pay homage to the rest/pause training today.

Wasn’t a heavy day, but it was rather productive.

PRESS
Set 1: 95 lbs × 10
Set 2: 135 lbs × 8
Set 3: 155 lbs × 6
Set 4: 185 lbs × 5
Set 5: 185 lbs × 7
Set 6: 185 lbs × 13

10 easy. 2 and then 1. My endurance is always an issue with higher reps being that I spend most of my time in the 2-6 zone.

BAND RESISTED PUSHUPS WITH HEAVY BAND
Set 1: 10
Set 2: 10
Set 3: 10

LAYING REAR DELT RAISES
Set 1: 25 lbs × 12
Set 2: 25 lbs × 12
Set 3: 25 lbs × 12

TRICEP PRESSDOWNS
Set 1: 130 lbs × 10
Set 2: 150 lbs × 10
Set 3: 190 lbs × 8
Set 4: 210 lbs × 20

13, then 4, then 3 for the final rest pause set.

INCLINE DB CURLS
Set 1: 25 lbs × 10
Set 2: 25 lbs × 10
Set 3: 25 lbs × 18

12, 4, 2 for the rest/pause.

PLANKS
Set 1: 60 secs
Set 2: 60 secs

One set on the elbows, one in the pushup position.

This was a great workout. Swoleness was had and I did the spandex pants proud… I really wanted American flag ones, but those will be hard to find….

Maybe blue ones, but I will look like a giant-ass Smurf… Swole Smurf?
