Started my “rehab” on the torn bicep.
Today I wanted to do nothing but light work, tested out the ROM and how much I can do, erred on the side of caution with -everything… since I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once, I consider myself a doctor… and no I don’t have a degree in Biology. 😉
HAMMER STRENGTH BENCH
Set 1: 90 lbs × 25

Really controlled the movements and didn’t either lock out or come back fully.

Set 2: 50 lbs × 20

Let my arms kind of relax here and just isolated the delt. I have nice shoulders and these need to be maintained.
Set 1: 20 lbs × 5
Set 2: 20 lbs × 5
Set 3: 20 lbs × 5
These are very underrated. Try them.

Again, not to lockout as I didn’t want to push the ROM yet

Set 2: 12 reps
Set 3: 12 reps
Tanning, no cardio… tomorrow will be squat city along with intervals on the bike. Sprints will have to hold off for now because of the arm pumps. But goddamn if I am going to rest totally.
That’s what separates people who TRAIN from people who workout… we don’t give the hell up.
