6/11 Back attack

I started by doing one set of deadlifts but my lower back acted up so I didn't continue with them.
3 sets of pull ups
5 sets wide grip pull downs
5 set cable rows
5 sets cable pullovers
4 set v-grip pull downs
2 sets machine row.

It was an okay session. I had a lot of fun talking to some girls afterwards. People at my gym are cool!

Looking good Johan :)
I'm glad you had a great time at the gym

How many Reps did you do in a set?

Thanks Tashie!
My rep range is different every day and every excersise. Basically I just close my eyes, think of a weight and choose what I'm thinking of and do as many reps as I can. Sometimes I go heavy 4-6 reps and sometimes up to 16.

I think that might be the best way to count or not to count them.. :)


Do you feel more focus on contracting your muscles
Rather then focusing on counting on how many reps you did?

Johan, that's how I train too! If I feel like doing high reps I do it, but sometimes I like to go heavy and do low reps. I figure by doing this you get exposed to various training methods. Besides it keeps things interesting, and you don't get bored.

It's different from excersise to excersise. If I'm doing real compound movements like clean and presses, deadlifts, squats etc it's mostly about power and getting more reps out. But if I'm doing dumbbell presses, flies, lateral raises and those types of movements it's more about focusing on contact and contraction.

That is EXACTLY the way I feel about it too!!

7/11 Abs and calves
Not a very good session. I was in a hurry.
About 20 sets of abs and maybe 10 calves.
