Training day 06-17-2013

Today I decided to hammer some sub-max volume with very short rest periods between sets.

Set 6: 20 lbs × 20

On the left side to get more back activation with the stupid low weight, I held every single rep on the left side for a 5 count. By the end of each set my back was burning. That’s one way to get some work in with a weight meant for a 5 year old.

STANDING CALF RAISES
Set 1: 170 lbs × 12
Set 2: 170 lbs × 12
Set 3: 170 lbs × 12

Used the SSB and a 3 b0ard. Hard to stretch but held the contraction for a 5 count each rep.

CRUNCHES
