Training day 07-29-2013

Been keeping rest periods shorter lately and I almost forgot how shitty that is.

I am leaning up, getting stronger and I want more…

I want it all.

I want it all, I want it all…

I want it NOW… *riff*

Sorry, got a little sidetracked with the Queen song.

As I write this my water is boiling for a box of whole wheat pasta, a pound of beef and a cup of some marinara sauce.

So I am a little off the beaten path right now because its soon time to load up on carbs.

BENCH
Set 1: 45 lbs × 10
Set 2: 135 lbs × 10
Set 3: 185 lbs × 10
Set 4: 225 lbs × 8
Set 5: 225 lbs × 8
Set 6: 225 lbs × 8

Went up some more in weight, felt easy but still going to be smart about progress.

DUMBBELL INCLINE BENCH
Set 1: 90 lbs × 15
Set 2: 90 lbs × 12
Set 3: 90 lbs × 9

Muscular endurance takes time to come back, but now I want to make the left side catch up with the right side. When the left side is close to failure, the right side will stop. I did unilateral work for a long time and there isn’t any need to keep the right side stronger than the left anymore.

Set 2: 25 lbs × 15
Set 3: 25 lbs × 15

Set 2: 130 lbs × 20
Set 3: 130 lbs × 10
Set 4: 90 lbs × 10

Strip set on the final set.

DUMBBELL CURLS
Set 1: 40 lbs × 12
Set 2: 40 lbs × 12
Set 3: 40 lbs × 12

ROPE PRESSDOWNS
Set 1: 130 lbs × 15
Set 2: 130 lbs × 15
Set 3: 120 lbs × 10
Set 4: 90 lbs × 5

Strip set on the final set.

Great workout and now my food is finally finished.

So its soon time to get into my beautiful land of carb coma.
